Do you wish your smile was a little brighter? If you do, you may know that you could consider having your teeth whitened. You may also know that there are several options you could consider—but do you know which option might be best for someone with sensitive teeth?

If you’re interested in whitening your teeth, you should visit your dentist. While home whitening kits are an option, they’re easy to misuse, which can damage your gums and your enamel. Furthermore, there may be some issues you’ll need to have addressed before you whiten your teeth. Since these kits aren’t made specifically for your teeth, they can actually make your sensitivity worse. If you visit our team, we’ll be able to provide you with a more comfortable, efficient experience.

When you visit our team, we may also use a laser during your treatment. If we do use a laser, we’ll be able to use a higher concentration of peroxide to accelerate the whitening process. Naturally, we’ll also take the appropriate precautions to help you prevent discomfort.
After your whitening treatment, our team could recommend a fluoride treatment to strengthen your teeth and help with your sensitivity.
