TEETH WHITENING

Are you a good candidate for teeth whitening?
First I would like to give you some more insight on your sensitivity/ worn enamel etc. Yes, over exposure to whitening material can eventually wear out your enamel. That is why I recommend in office treatment versus take home products which you need to expose your teeth to the whitening material over a long time to get to your desired shade. There are also a lot of other factors to why your enamel may have worn out over the years:
1. Age is a big factor (we use our teeth all the time)
2. Clenching and grinding can wear out enamel as well as cause sensitivity (most common factor for sensitivity)
3. Your diet, especially a diet high in acidity can destroy enamel (I recommend drinking everything through a straw)
4. Simply, brushing to aggressively, I see it all the time, some people even create notches in their teeth from brushing to hard (always use a soft bristled tooth brush not only is it more delicate it actually gets into hard to reach area better)
*receded gums can also create sensitivity as your roots are exposed*
So how to deal with worn enamel and sensitivity?
1. Do not use take home whitening material and have your teeth professionally whitened in office maximum twice a year
2. Brush with a soft bristled toothbrush
3. Use sensodyne toothpaste
4. Don’t eat or drink anything to cold or hot as that just irritates the nerve in the tooth
5. Use desensitizing gels/trays on a regular basis to calm the nerves (I sell UltraEz trays to use at home which include fluoride and potassium nitrate to keep sensitivity levels low).
Any whitening comes with a risk of sensitivity. I have patients with absolutely NO sensitivity after treatment and some who have some sensitivity which last the first 24-48 hours. Every patient is different. I provide a pre fluoride treatment as well as post treatment paste I apply to remineralizer and help desensitize the teeth. The material I use is formulated with fluoride and potassium nitrate as well with a almost neutral PH level (the closer to neutral the less sensitivity)
Currently we are having a promo for 2 back to back sessions in 1 appointment for the price of $180. This includes a take home hygiene package and you will have the option to purchase take home desensitizing trays that will help with any sensitivity you may experience post treatment.
