Many patients with sensitive teeth are concerned about teeth whitening because some types of teeth whitening products can increase sensitivity. However, if you have sensitive teeth, you are not without options. Several teeth whitening options can help you achieve the more attractive smile you have been wanting.
When you have stained, sensitive teeth, your first call should be to our office. Our Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist can evaluate your smile and make recommendations tailored to your needs. In some cases, your sensitivity may be treatable. Some patients have exposed roots, worn enamel or even untreated cavities. Once these conditions have been addressed, they can enjoy increased smile comfort. In other cases, we can recommend the most appropriate whitening solutions that are unlikely or less likely to increase sensitivity.
Both in-office and take-home whitening treatments can be carefully adjusted to your sensitivity needs. We may also recommend following any whitening procedure with fluoride treatments, which can strengthen worn or damaged enamel and reduce your sensitivity risks.
Every smile is different, which means that there is no best whitening solution for every smile. Contact our expert in teeth whitening in Beverly Hills today to learn more about teeth whitening or to schedule your consultation.
