Will teeth whitening damage my teeth?
Professional teeth whitening can truly improve the appearance of your smile by whitening your teeth several shades and bleaching away the stains that collect on your teeth over time.
For healthy patients, teeth whitening is safe. We will perform an exam of your teeth and gums to make sure they are healthy enough for teeth whitening. If you have gum recession and exposed roots, we can implement a regimen to reduce your symptoms so you can still enjoy the benefits of teeth whitening. This regimen may include:
- A fluoride varnish treatment to help strengthen your enamel and reduce the zings of sensitivity that can occur.
- A sensitivity toothpaste before and after your whitening sessions.
- A sensitivity relief gel before and after treatment.
You should experience minimal side effects from teeth whitening, as our in-office whitening system is a low-sensitivity treatment that opens doors to whiter teeth for many patients.
