Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

In short, the answer is yes! The myth is that teeth whitening is going to kill your nerves and cause sensitivity. However, that is just not the case. There are many types of whitening treatments that are 100% safe, but some are more effective than others. 

In-Office Whitening Technique

There are two types of whitening treatments that are typically used by dentists- carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide. At the Bilski Dental Group, we use hydrogen peroxide gels because they offer a more comfortable experience for the patients. We put the gel over the tooth and let it sit for about 20 minutes under blue light.

If you are coming in for this treatment, it is important to hydrate before coming in as the process can dehydrate your teeth. By making sure you are hydrated, your teeth will feel less sensitive during the procedure. 

The whole appointment takes about an hour and a half and leaves you with a white and bright smile that is sure to stun!

Over the Counter Teeth Whitening Treatments

We have no problem with our patients wanting to try the over the counter whitening options. However, we have fun that in-office treatment is more effective and more affordable in the long run.
