Teeth Whitening Frequently Asked Questions

Click on any question below to learn the answer.

QIs Teeth Whitening Safe?

Absolutely! Whether you’re whitening in the dental office or at home with our kits, we take every precaution to make sure you and your smile stay healthy while brightening your teeth. For example, for in-office treatment, we utilize a gum dam to keep the strong bleaching chemicals away from your gums. It is possible to experience minor sensitivity following in-office treatment, but this symptom usually fades within a couple of days.

QAm I A Good Candidate for Professional Teeth Whitening?

In general, most patients qualify for teeth whitening. All that’s required is that your teeth be free of cavities, gum disease, and other issues before we start. If we discover any problems during your consultation, we’ll resolve them first and then address the color of your teeth. The only way to know for sure whether you’re ready for a brighter smile is to have a consultation with us!

QDoes Teeth Whitening Work On Crowns, Fillings, & Other Restorations?

The powerful bleaching agent in professional whitening solutions does not change the color of fillings, bonding, crowns, and veneers, but it may weaken the bond that holds composite resin in place. During your consultation, we’ll take your restorations into account to determine which treatment is right for you.

QHow Long Do The Results of Teeth Whitening Last?

Typically, whitened teeth retain their shade for two or three years before needing touchup treatment. To make the results last as long as possible, you can avoid darkly pigmented foods and drinks that lead to staining. By coming to our dental office on a regular basis, we can make sure that your teeth remain as white as possible. When necessary, we can provide at-home kits for you to maintain your beautiful smile.

QHow Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost?

Because we offer multiple solutions for brightening smiles and personalize treatment, it’s difficult to estimate the cost of the whitening procedures for all patients. During your consultation, we’ll create a customized plan and provide a personalized quote so you know exactly what you can expect to pay.
