If you are looking through the glossy pages of a magazine or glimpsing the images of nearly any advertisement as you walk down the sidewalk, you will notice one thing for certain: Everyone seems to have white, sparkling smiles. Fortunately, we offer teeth whitening, so you can also enjoy the extraordinary feeling of showing off a glittering smile to the world. While patients tend to feel relieved that there is a way to address yellowing or general discoloration, they do not always become completely receptive to the idea of whitening. This is usually the result of concern. After all, is whitening comfortable, you may wonder? Does it harm your teeth? To find out more regarding the benefits of whitening and why you can continue to feel excited about it, look over the following questions and answers:
Teeth Whitening Q&A
Question: Will your teeth whitening make my teeth hurt?
Answer: No. We have carefully selected an at-home whitening system that protects your teeth from common problems like dehydration. You can expect gentle whitening that will not result in the heightened tooth sensitivity you may have heard about from friends or individuals who have undergone in-office whitening.
Question: Can’t I just get the same results with OTC products?
Answer: No. Over-the-counter (OTC) products can become extremely harmful to your smile. The main problem is that the products are universally formulated for everyone. They can irritate your teeth and gums without offering the dramatic whitening you desire. This often results in the overuse of these products, which then leads to damage.
Question: Will my teeth look noticeably whiter?
Answer: Yes. You will enjoy a smile that appears brighter and whiter by several shades for a truly stunning transformation. We will provide you with customized care to ensure you achieve the smile goals you desire, while your smile remains protected.
