FAQ About Teeth Whitening
Is teeth whitening dangerous?
No, it is not dangerous. Teeth whitening under the professional care of your dental team does not pose any risk.
Does teeth whitening hurt?
No, teeth whitening is a simple procedure that does not hurt. However, some patients do experience some sensitivity following the treatment. This is due to the whitening agent interacting with the enamel of the teeth. This sensitivity can last anywhere from a few minutes to a couple of days. If you experience this, over-the-counter pain medication can offer some relief, though it should subside rather quickly.
Can yellow teeth turn white?
Yes! Professional teeth whitening can leave you with incredible results. If you have yellow teeth, it is very possible to turn those teeth white again.
How often can I whiten my teeth?
Generally, you shouldn’t whiten your teeth more than once per year, although some treatments suggest it every few months. This will vary based on the specific whitening treatment so it is best to speak to your dentist for the proper recommendation.
