Yes! If your teeth are sensitive, you can still get teeth whitening in Reno from Dr. Chelsea Dean. However, the teeth whitening process may temporarily increase your sensitivity for a short while after treatment.
Dr. Dean will take steps to manage this and ensure your comfort during the treatment process, such as choosing gentler whitening agents spread across multiple appointments at Westside Dental Studio.
In most cases, teeth sensitivity is nothing to worry about, and it can be caused by genetic issues like thin enamel. But there are some oral health issues that can also cause teeth sensitivity or make it worse. Things like gum disease, teeth grinding, cavities, and other problems like GERD (gastric reflux) can contribute to sensitivity.
These problems must be properly treated or managed before you can have your teeth whitened. Because of this, Dr. Dean will examine your mouth to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy before you get teeth whitening at your local Reno Dentist.
No. If you have any cosmetic dental treatments like dental crowns, veneers, or teeth that have been treated with dental bonding, they will not respond to your teeth whitening treatment.
Teeth whitening is ineffective in these situations because the materials used to create your cosmetic dental work don’t respond to chemical whiteners the same way that your enamel does. Because these materials are designed to be non-reactive, the whiteners won’t do anything to your dental work.
This is one reason why teeth whitening is often recommended before you get veneers, crowns, or other cosmetic dental treatments. If you whiten your teeth before your cosmetic treatment, your dental work can be matched to your bright smile, ensuring that your smile always looks its best.
However, if you already have cosmetic dental treatments like veneers, you can still get teeth whitening. Dr. Dean will simply adjust your treatment, using the shade of your dental work as a target to ensure that your natural teeth match the rest of your grin after the whitening procedure is complete. This will provide you with a more even, pleasing smile.
As long as your mouth is healthy and free of major chronic oral health issues like tooth decay and gum disease, you are likely a good candidate for professional teeth whitening. However, if you do have serious problems with your dental health, these must be resolved before you can get teeth whitening or any other cosmetic dental treatment at Westside Dental Studio.
However, it is important to note that not all staining can be treated by teeth whitening. Internal stains and extremely severe stains may not be removable with chemical whiteners alone, and may require further treatment. Dental crowns and veneers are often used to cover up these teeth and restore your smile.
In-office teeth whitening utilizes powerful chemicals as well as UV light to dramatically whiten your smile in as little as an hour. This is a great option for quick results to prepare for a special day like a wedding, graduation, or photoshoot.
For a more gradual approach to transforming your grin, take-home whitening is a great option. Dr. Dean will build a set of custom whitening trays for you and give you instructions to whiten your smile in the comfort of your own home. Take-home whitening takes longer than in-office, but provides the same amazing results.
