How Is Professional Teeth Whitening Different From What I Can Do At Home?
Professional teeth whitening is safer, faster, and more effective than over-the-counter options. Professional teeth whitening also lasts longer than over-the-counter options. Professional teeth whitening significantly reduces your risk of sensitivity and damage to your tooth enamel.
Why Does Whitening Cause Sensitivity?
The bleaching agents used in professional teeth whitening treatments can sometimes go past the tooth enamel to the sensitive nerves of the tooth. The sensitivity from this is usually temporary, and your dentist will take steps to prevent it from occurring. If you’re experiencing chronic tooth sensitivity, it’s important to see your dentist. They can check for underlying causes and offer solutions to help mitigate any discomfort.
How Long Does Professional Teeth Whitening Last?
Six months to three years is average. How long your professional teeth whitening treatment lasts also depends on lifestyle factors. If you smoke, consume staining foods and drinks like coffee, red wine, and beets, or don’t practice good oral hygiene habits, your treatment’s longevity will lean more toward the six-month timeframe.
