  1. Your restorations won’t whiten
  2. You may experience temporary sensitivity
  3. You can keep your smile whiter with some behavior changes
  4. Whitening isn’t permanent

Restorations Won’t Whiten

If you have restorations like veneers or crowns, they won’t respond to teeth whitening treatments. This shouldn’t be a big problem, especially with our home whitening treatments. You can control the degree of brightness, by simply halting the use of our professional gel when you’d like.

If you are concerned about a mismatch of shades in the front of your smile, you can always consider replacing your existing restorations.

You May Experience Temporary Sensitivity When Whitening Teeth

While professional products are less likely to cause teeth sensitivity when whitening, it can still happen. Using a toothpaste designed especially for sensitive teeth can help. Also, only use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a gentle touch when brushing.

There Are Ways to Keep Your Teeth Whiter

You’ll want to maintain your beautifully bright results as long as possible. Fortunately, it’s not hard! Make sure you:

  • Brush and floss daily
  • See us at least twice a year for dental cleanings
  • Stop smoking
  • Avoid staining foods and drinks as much as possible; at least minimize contact with teeth by using a straw when consuming dark liquids and rinsing your mouth with water after consuming staining substances

Whitening Teeth Won’t Last Forever

Whitening teeth isn’t meant to be a permanent solution. But there are options if you’d prefer something more permanent, have thin tooth enamel (which can make teeth appear discolored), or have stains so stubborn they don’t respond well to whitening.

You can cover discoloration with tooth bonding, dental veneers, or dental crowns. Our dentists will help you determine which cosmetic solution is best for your smile.
