Cleaning won’t whiten your teeth or negate your whitening treatments.

Your dental cleaning will not likely whiten but just clean. To get whiter teeth you need to do the special treatment.

However, if you have a significant plaque build up on your teeth (you would know your teeth better than anyone) the whitening can calcify this making it harder to remove.

Just FYI there are speed whitening options (Crest 2 hour whitening) that can whiten your teeth after your wedding. The two hour whitening does work great but if you have sensitive teeth it might cause some initial discomfort for a day or so after. Using sensodyne toothpaste can help with this.

/not a dental pro…but addicted to whitening and wanted all the facts. I am always complimented on my white teeth. 🙂

Does anyone know anything about Lightening Whitening or its called Dial A Smile? Ive seen some ads for it and looks pretty good. Ive used a treatment from my dentist at home and saw minimal results and my teeth were so sensitive. The one I want to get has no sensitivity and whitens quickly. I want a nice white smile for my wedding in 2 months. Has anyone used this before?? Thx!

I had both done as a professional cleaning just before your whitening will enhance the results.  Something about the pores in your teeth.  I had an appointment for a cleaning and whitening done approx. 3 weeks before the wedding with another whitening session within a week of the wedding….I drink alot of coffee.  I hasn’t going to be bothered but the whitening was a gift from my SIL and me and my hubby both went.  I think it turned out well…very natural and I am glad I did it.

Oh and another tip….DO NOT brush your teeth before (within a few hours) of whitening your teeth.  The flouride gets in the pores and make whitening less effective.
