You may notice that your teeth are sensitive during the whitening process and for a short period after the procedure. This is due to the exposure of the dentin layer during the whitening process. If you have tooth sensitivity before you decide to whiten, consult your dentist beforehand for advice on what teeth whitening options are suitable for your situation. Your dentist can also give you a list of brands of whitening products that may help alleviate the increased level of sensitivity during the whitening process.
Soft Tissue Irritation
Also known as a chemical burn, soft tissue irritation may occur if the whitening solution is exposed to the gum tissue during the whitening. You can contact us prior to booking an appointment to find out if we have any whitening specials available. Book your 30-minute session.
