Is teeth whitening going to make my teeth sensitive?

Despite the common misconception, teeth whitening does not make teeth sensitive. If anything, there is a chance you will experience tooth sensitivity for a few days after receiving treatment. This sensation is because most teeth are sensitive to the bleaching solution found in the whitening treatment. During this time, using tooth sensitivity toothpaste and room temperature foods can help reduce sensitivity as it fades away.

How long will my teeth whitening last?

With good oral hygiene and avoidance of constant consumption of high pigment food and drinks, in-office whitening can last up to a year or longer. However, if you decide to opt for at-home whitening or an approved store-bought whitening kit, the results may not be as long-lasting due to less concentration found in the ingredients. When meeting with our teeth whitening dentist, you’ll get provided with everything you need to select the best teeth whitening treatment for your teeth!
