Why Visit A Dentist for Teeth Whitening?
How well your teeth will respond to certain types of bleach may depend on the coloring of your teeth and the types of stains you have. Also, bleaching will not work on crowns, veneers, or fillings. Since teeth whitening isn’t for everyone, the best way to determine if you’re a candidate is to visit your local dentist office. Additionally, the products we have available are more effective than over-the-counter products you can find at most stores.
Are There any Side Effects of Teeth Whitening?
Some teeth sensitivity has been known to occur after a bleaching application. This is totally normal. The side effect is caused by dehydration of the teeth, making them less insulated to handle temperature changes. The feeling is brief and should only last a few hours after whitening.
At Brand Dental, we have a variety of techniques available to help reduce post-whitening sensitivity. This is one of the reasons why visiting your dentist can make whitening a more comfortable and enjoyable procedure!
