Is teeth whitening safe?

Teeth Whitening Avondale AucklandA white smile can improve self-confidence and give you a younger-looking smile.

We recommend arranging an evaluation to determine if your teeth are healthy enough for whitening. Seeking teeth whitening from an experienced dentist often provides superior results when compared with commercial whitening products.

We offer both in-house and take-home teeth whitening options for patients to choose from. We will also recommend the appropriate type of whitening gel to help you achieve a brilliant smile.

Considerations When Whitening Your Teeth

When considering teeth whitening, it is important to remember that restorations such as fillings and crowns will not whiten like natural teeth. Whitening before restorative treatment will give you more uniform results and a sparkling smile.

The most common side effects of whitening are irritated gums and sensitivity. If you have this experience, be sure you are not using more than the recommended amount of whitening gel as it can leak from trays onto your gums. We also offer desensitising treatments for patients with gum recession or who have sensitivity.

Sensitive teeth will usually resolve in a day or two. Taking some time off between at-home whitening treatments will also improve comfort.
