Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)

  • Teeth Whitening is one of the safest dental procedures.  It does NOT harm your teeth in any way.  
  • Teeth Whitening is effective by exfoliating stains from tooth enamel.  Stains discolor teeth from foods and beverages that we consume.

One of the most common side effects from teeth whitening is increased tooth sensitivity.  Everyone differs as to how sensitive their teeth get.  It’s normal to have increased tooth sensitivity for 2-4 days after teeth whitening.

  • The longevity of teeth whitening mostly depends on your consumption of foods and beverages.  How often you brush your teeth also plays a role.  for example, if you drink coffee and red wine, the results from teeth whitening are likely to get stained in a few months.  We recommend to drink coffee through a straw and try to rinse or brush after drinking heavy staining beverages to maintain your results.  Most clients return to us once a year for teeth whitening treatment.
  • Teeth whitening results are instantaneous.  You will leave your office with brighter teeth. 
  • Yes! For best teeth whitening results we recommend a recent dental cleaning.  The teeth whitening gel cannot penetrate through plaque and calculus
  • Teeth Whitening only works on tooth enamel.  Dental work such as bonding, crowns, and veneers will not change color.
  • Many patients have white spots on their teeth.  Teeth Whitening removes stains from your teeth which will also make the white spots appear brighter.  While we cannot predict your results, we can show you a mirror after each 15 minute session.  If you start noticing the white spots getting too bright, you can stop the treatment.
