To help you know more and to help you find the answers to your questions, he is happy to provide you with answers to frequently asked questions about teeth whitening.
What is teeth whitening treatment?
This treatment is the process of eliminating stains from your teeth, which involves Dr. Willis Jensen protecting your gums with a rubber shield, painting a whitening solution onto your smile, and activating that solution with a special ultraviolet light. When the solution is activated, the chemicals are sent into the teeth to break up the stains. For pristine results, your dentist will repeat these steps as necessary.
What can teeth whitening do for me?
Teeth whitening can make your discolored and yellow teeth white and attractive once again. It can even remove stubborn and severe stains that are nearly impossible to remove with over-the-counter solutions. Teeth whitening can brighten your smile multiple shades in just one appointment at our office.
Does teeth whitening hurt?
During your treatment, you should not feel any pain. It will not involve irritating any nerves or tissues. We will do what we need to do to protect areas of the mouth that are necessary. However, you might feel some tooth sensitivity after your treatment, but it should be very light and it should disappear quickly.
