Frequently Asked Questions:
Is it Better to do Teeth Whitening at Home or in the Dental Office?
Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?
It is possible that patients experience sensitivity to their teeth and gums during or after whitening treatment, but there are still some patients who find little to no sensitivity after whitening. If you are worried about experiencing sensitivity or find yourself experiencing sensitivity during whitening, we are more than happy to coordinate a whitening routine with you that will minimize sensitivity. Additionally, aids such as a tooth sensitivity toothpaste may be beneficial to use in conjunction with the whitening treatment.
Will Teeth Whitening Work on My Crowns/Veneers?
Unfortunately, whitening treatment is only effective on natural teeth, meaning any artificial tooth structures such as crowns, bridges, or veneers will remain the same color. Considering this, if you know that you may be thinking about whitening your teeth in the future, it will be wise to inform your dentist to brighten the shade of the crown prior to placement. Of course, not every situation will be as ideal as this, so a replacement crown/veneer on any teeth that will be showing in your smile after whitening treatment may be a good option for you. It is best to talk with your dentist to determine the best path for your whitening treatment if visual/cosmetic artificial tooth structures are involved.
How Long Does Whitening Last?
There are a variety of factors that can determine the longevity of whiteness one experiences after whitening treatments. One of the biggest factors is the foods and drinks that we eat. Patients who follow a healthy diet and avoid drinks that are more prone to staining the teeth (coffee, wine, etc.) will see a longer lasting effect of whitening. Other habits such as drinking through a straw and avoiding smoking will also help to prolong the whiteness of the teeth.
