If you have tried over-the-counter teeth whitening products but are not satisfied with the results that you have experienced, it may be time for you to schedule a consultation with our orthodontist. Before you come in for your consultation and treatment, it would be a good idea for you to learn more about teeth whitening. Some of the most frequently asked questions are answered below.
One question that people often ask us is if teeth whitening is bad for their enamel. Thankfully, you won’t experience any permanent damage to the enamel of your teeth or to any other part of your teeth when you get them whitened. You will be able to experience the benefits of having a beautiful, healthy, white smile without worrying about damaging your teeth.
Many patients are also curious if they will experience permanent tooth sensitivity after receiving teeth whitening from our orthodontist. The first thing that you need to understand is that tooth sensitivity is transient. If you experience any kind of sensitivity at all after your treatment, it will quickly go away after a couple of days. If you are not prone to tooth sensitivity, you may not experience it at all.
How Long Will My Results Last?
The answer to this question depends on a wide variety of factors. To make sure your results last as long as possible, our orthodontist will give you suggestions on ways that you can maintain them, including avoiding things that stain your teeth such as smoking or drinking coffee and red wine. Once your results wear off, however, you can safely come back for another treatment.
What if I Have Fillings, Crowns or Veneers?
This is another question that our orthodontist will be able to answer with certainty during your consultation. Our professionals have the training and expertise necessary to provide you with safe, effective teeth whitening without negatively affecting other structures in your teeth. However, we still recommend that you ask our orthodontist during your consultation. This is the very best way for you to learn about what kind of you results you can expect from teeth whitening if you have veneers, crowns or fillings.
