Whitening the teeth is a fast way to boost brilliance and beauty. However, patients considering our professional whitening treatments at Goochland Dentistry in place of drugstore options often have many questions about what they can expect before, during, or even after their whitening treatments.
Some of these questions include:
These are all valid questions and concerns we often hear from patients considering professional teeth whitening. Drs. Peter R. Murchie and Rachele Gillespie of Goochland Dentistry, can evaluate you and talk to you about your options for brightening your smile.
The process of whitening in and of itself does not cause discomfort. This is true for both our Opalescence Boost in-office whitening and our Opalescence take-home trays. However, some patients may experience sensitive teeth after their procedure.
Some sensitivity can occur with our professional whitening solutions as they use stronger ingredients to provide more immediate results. If you already have sensitive teeth, whitening the teeth may cause more discomfort for you. Our team will discuss with you what you can expect following your whitening treatment in terms of sensitivity.
Most patients will notice their teeth are sensitive for about a week or two after their whitening treatment. However, those who have teeth whitening done regularly with the take-home whitening kits will find they do not experience as much sensitivity.
