Is a Teeth Whitening treatment bad for my enamel?
There is no permanent damage caused to the enamel or any other tooth structures by tooth whitening.
Does teeth whitening cause permanent tooth sensitivity?
Sensitivity from tooth whitening is always transient. That means if there is any sensitivity caused by the whitening, it goes away within one to two days after the treatment, and the patient returns to the state of sensitivity he or she had prior to starting the whitening process.
Can I get my teeth whitened?
Most people are candidates for tooth whitening, but again, each situation is unique and it’s best to contact your dental professional.
How long does teeth whitening last?
We recommend clients do a course of 3 treatments every mouth. Typically you can expect whitening to last from six months to one years. Avoiding red wine, coffee, and smoking, all of which can cause staining, helps preserve the results.
Is it safe?
Yes, many studies have proven that teeth whitening is safe. You can protect your tooth enamel by using calcium sulfate and fluoride.
Does teeth whitening affect fillings, veneers, or crowns?
Teeth whitening has little or no effect on restorative materials such as porcelain or crowns, but it may temporarily reduce the bond strength between enamel and composite restorations.
