- If irritation such as redness, swelling or soreness of the gums or the mouth occurs, discontinue use and consult a dentist.
- Do not eat, drink or smoke while the gel is on the teeth.

- Discoloration of teeth can be caused by staining from food, drinks, and tobacco with penetration into the tooth enamel/dentin; age-dependent degenerative changes; tetracycline or minocycline medications; fluorosis; endodontic treatment and genetically discolored teeth.
- Review the patient’s current dental health and medical history.
- Patients with composite restorations must be advised that existing composites may require replacement since only natural teeth will whiten.
- For patients requiring aesthetic restorations, wait 2 weeks after the last whitening treatment to allow for color stabilization. Do not place adhesive restorations on teeth within 7-10 days of any tooth whitening treatment as recent studies show a transient decrease in bond strength during the period.
- Methyl methacrylate provisional or temporaries may discolor and redden during the whitening process. However, composite or polycarbonate materials will remain unaffected.
Before beginning treatment, perform prophylaxis to ensure the patient is free of decay, calculus and easily removable extrinsic stains. All restorations should be intact or well-sealed with adequate temporary materials.
Set realistic expectations about potential results based on oral exam and explain results vary. Patients can expect a noticeably whiter smile with one treatment. For optimum results use vakker® Smile is a combination with take-home whitening.
Anatomy, calcifications, age, tooth condition, hygiene, etc determine the results each patient will attain. Teeth with yellow and brown stains will achieve greatest success white those gray shading from tetracycline or other medications may experience less dramatic results but should improve. Crowns and other tooth-colored restorations will not whiten; to maintain uniform color, tooth-colored restorations may require replacement following the whitening procedure.
The dental professional should give patients the vakker® Smile Patient Post-Care and maintenance instructions and advise patients:
- Patients should not eat or drink while doing the treatment and for 30 minutes after their vakker® Smile treatment.
- To continue good oral hygiene, the use of VAKKER Electric Toothbrush will help Prolong the benefits for their whitening treatment.
