The best approach is to do a preliminary consult.

In most cases you will want to whiten your teeth two-three
weeks prior to the event, and do a follow-up treatment 2 days prior to the event.

Is a dental cleaning necessary before teeth whitening?

While we will eliminate stains during the whitening process,
teeth whitening is not a substitute for a dental cleaning. If there is visible tartar on the exterior of teeth, a dental cleaning will be recommended. Results are always better on clean teeth!
