Are you unhappy with the color of your teeth? Are you interested in teeth whitening but worried about the treatment because you have sensitive teeth? If so, there are a few things you can do to protect your pearly whites while avoiding painful or uncomfortable side effects.

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.

Our team can even help you cope with sensitivity by using lasers. With lasers, our team may be able to place a stronger bleach mixture on your teeth and help it dry more quickly. We’ll also examine your teeth before we start your treatment and offer you any solutions you may need. We may also recommend fluoride treatment to help you cope with your sensitive teeth.
