Who is a Candidate for Tooth Whitening?
Almost anyone is a candidate for tooth whitening. However, people with dark yellow or yellow brown teeth tend to whiten better than those with gray or bluish gray teeth. Teeth with many fillings, cavities, chips, etc are usually best treated by bonding porcelain veneers or porcelain crowns. Any current restoration that you have such as: fillings, porcelain crowns, onlays and inlays cannot be whitened.
Should I expect any Sensitivity?
Expect some tooth sensitivity the first 24 hours following whitening. This sensitivity is usually mild if your teeth are not normally sensitive. With in-office whitening this sensitivity will usually subside in 1-2 days.
