The procedure was about an hour and foutry five minutes.An hour to prep and 45 minutes for the zoom. Three sessions which was about 15 minutes long. I travelled to Florida to have it done and was in communication with Annie before everything. She was so sweet and patient. When I arrived, was greeted by the staff. Then I signed paper work and made payment . No long waiting time at all. Lorainne the dental assistant walk me through everything , along with Dr Martinez.
Lorainne prep me and she did some replicas of my teeth, so that I can take home with my take home whitening kit. Lorainne really kept me entertain , such a sweet and awesome lady!!!!
Anyway let's began..... I was so nervous and terrified at first after reading so many horrible reviews but hey that didn't stop me, cause I wanted Pearly white teeth!!
Ok.. mouth was prep , she inserted all sorts of material in my mouth to protect my lips and gums along with vitamin E oil. Once that was done she applied the whitening gel to my teeth each time before the laser began. The first session, I felt nothing , second session, about three minutes before it ended , I felt a zinger. It wasn't bad at all, it was bearable. The third session , I was afraid other zingers would occur... but hey guess what nothing at all!!! Before I knew it ....I was done!!! I was in an area by myself ...so I was super comfortable ...Lorainne checked on me often and if she stepped away and an ending sounds buzz off, someone will informed her.
About two weeks before my procedure , I brushed with pronamel toothpaste for sensitive teeth and the mouth rinse I used was Act Restoring. Honestly I do believe they helped alot, especially in restoring sensitive areas.
In addition , I took two pain killers ( baralgin 500mg) to minimize any pain.
About an hour or two I felt a zinger, it was sharp and quick and then throughout the day I had about three others and that was it. I was at the mall shopping right after my procedure . So it's bearable.
The staff at country isles Dental in florida were the best and I couldn't have chosen anyone better. DR Martinez and her staff are so incredible,they would make you feel so comfortable .
