I have sensitive teeth. Can I still get professional teeth whitening?

Sensitive teeth can make teeth whitening with over-the-counter products completely out of the question. This sometimes leaves patients wondering if whitening their teeth is possible at all.

We have good news, though!

Many professional teeth whitening options have added desensitizing ingredients to make it easier for everyone – even those with sensitive teeth – to enjoy whiter, brighter teeth!

In addition to making it possible for people with sensitivity, professional products have a number of advantages over OTC whitening kits. Your whitening treatment will be customized for your needs so that you can reach your whitening goals safely and comfortably. Plus, you have the added benefit of professional guidance every step of the way.

Whitening is one of the cheapest and simplest ways to improve the appearance of your smile, and our patients are often amazed at the transformation that occurs just from whitening alone! Of course, if you do have other aesthetic concerns that you’d like to address, we are happy to discuss additional cosmetic dentistry options as well.

If you are interested in having your teeth professionally whitened, please call our office to schedule a teeth whitening consultation. We will examine your teeth, discuss your goals, and determine the teeth whitening option that will give you the results you want.
