Am I a good candidate for teeth whitening?
Probably! Most people are – even those who have sensitive teeth. This is often a relief for people to hear, particularly if you've tried and failed over-the-counter treatments.
Professional teeth whitening treatments use a stronger concentration of the whitening agent than store-bought kits, and they have many other advantages that make them a better choice. For instance, we custom make the tray you will use, which reduces spillage of the product on to your gums and lips, preventing discomfort from the bleach coming into contact with that sensitive tissue. Many professional whiteners also contain an added ingredient to reduce sensitivity, making teeth whitening an option for more people. Plus, and perhaps most important, you will be under the care of a dentist you trust during the whitening process. We'll give you precise directions for using the kit and walk you through the process, so that you know exactly how much to use and how often to use it. Any time you have a question or concern during your whitening, we'll be here to help you and answer your questions. After your whitening treatment is done, we'll check your results and discuss your program for maintenance so that your beautiful, white smile can last.
