Laser Teeth Whitening at the Smile Shop part 2

When I had my teeth whitened on Tuesday I was told that I had to stay away from any coloured foods for 72 hours. I thought it would be fine but I did find it quite hard, especially when colleagues were eating a strawberry mousse cake, pizza, pasta or if I was walking through the city thinking of food and everyone was eating things I couldn't have. I did make it and although Friday afternoon couldn't come fast enough I still had rice for lunch even though I was "colour-food-legal". Here is how I did it.

The night before I went out for dinner with my boyfriend and another couple. We had thai food (red chicken curry for me thanks), red wine and I had my favourite ice cream for dessert. I think it really helped having a great meal and some great company to think about for the next few days.
After the procedure on Tuesday I was in a lot of pain, I am a sensitive soul with sensitive teeth. I therefore didn't have much of an appetite in the afternoon, only for pain killers. Luckily the pain was gone by day 2. The only foods I ate over day 2 and day 3 was an array of breadrolls, vanilla youghurt, banana, ritz crackers, rice and some organic white chocolate. Drinking vanilla Up & Go's really helped too. The first meal I ended up having on Friday night was barbequed chicken, a vanilla strawberry cupcake and lots of white wine. It was a great feed and it was wonderful being able to eat normally again. I am still staying away from coffee, red wine and beetroot since they are very staining foods.

In terms of the dental care, every night I brushed my teeth, placed some teeth whitening gel in the moulds which I had on for 45 minutes, I rinsed out and applied tooth mousse for 3 minutes. Then it was time for beauty sleep. I will keep doing this until the teeth whitening gel runs out. My main motivation for doing it nightly (you can do it every other day too), is that I want to be done by Christmas.

Have you ever had to stay away from food because of teeth whitening or anything else? How did you cope?
