Cosmetic Dental Care FAQ

QAm I a good candidate for teeth whitening?
A

Patients who experience the most benefit from having their teeth whitened:

  • Are in good dental health
  • Maintain good dental health (i.e. brush three times a day, floss, receive regular dental checkups every six months, etc.)
  • May suffer from slightly discolored, or yellow, teeth
  • Wish to improve the look of their smile for aesthetic purposes
QAre there any side effects with teeth whitening?
A

Teeth whitening is a safe, effective procedure, and does not typically include any negative side effects. Minor side effects may consist of:

  • Increased tooth sensitivity to hot or cold. This is usually temporary and most times will subside within a few days.
  • White spots on the surface of the teeth (a potential side effect of at home whitening systems). These are usually temporary and resolve within a day or 2.
QHow long will each cosmetic dental treatment take?
A

Each treatment we provide is unique, so it can really depend. While cosmetic treatment times may vary, some treatments, such as Zoom! Whitening are completed within one office visit!
