Good Habits and Diet Are Key

After your oral surgery has been completed at Smyl Manatee office, it’s important to remember that you still need adequate time to heal. During your recovery, follow all of your post-OP instructions exactly as they’re given to you. This will bolster your oral health, shorten your healing time, and decrease your chances of developing any complications.

We always schedule a 2 Day Post Op appointment to ensure that your dentist can review everything to make sure there are no future complications. Along with that online library for all Post Op material can be a great resource for you.

Tooth Whitening Post Treatment Care

Congratulations! You’ve just experienced a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. The next 48 hours are important in enhancing and maximizing your whitening results for a long lasting, bright and healthy smile.

For the next 48 hours, dark staining substances should be avoided, such as:

Coffee and/or tea


Berry Pie

Tobacco products

Red Wine

Red Sauces


Additional ways to maintain your sparkling smile:

Soy Sauce

Additional ways to maintain your sparkling smile:

⦿ Avoid staining related habits
⦿ Use an automated toothbrush
⦿ Seek regular professional dental hygiene care to maintain oral health, keep staining to a minimum and determine the need for whitening touch-ups.
⦿ Practice good oral hygiene including thorough tooth brushing, flossing to remove debris from between the teeth, and tongue cleaning.
Some patients experience sensitivity such as “zingers” or thermal sensitivity 12 to 24 hours after whitening. This sensitivity can last longer than 24 hours, but it will improve each day and will go away very soon.
Fluoride gels or rinses will help as well as any type of over-the-counter pain relievers such as Advil, Motrin or Extra-strength Tylenol.
Please call the office with your questions.
