Teeth whitening is the number one asked for cosmetic procedure in a dental office. The biggest risk is sensitivity, the biggest concern. What we have in our office is that we have the latest technology that allows us to reduce the concentration of the power light. So if you’re feeling sensitivity throughout while you’re doing the procedure in our office, we can turn down that power to allow you to complete your tooth whitening cycle. Those who have yellow teeth will see more dramatic results. Those who have greyish teeth see less dramatic results. So for a client who is very busy, we may suggest we do it, the Power Whitening here in our office. For those clients who have a little more time, we may suggest whitening trays–custom made whitening trays at home. Over-the-counter teeth whitening products have exploded over the last few years and I support them. I say they are usually a less costly option than the one in a dental office. And I would suggest you try them. If they work–fine. And if they don’t work then you can come to us for more advanced options. My general advice is “go for it.” I think tooth whitening is a wonderful option. It makes you wan’ look younger and fresher and healthier. It really allows you to transform your face and your smile in a very simple manner.
