Q: Will whitening cause tooth sensitivity?
Tooth sensitivity can occur as a result of whitening. If sensitivity occurs, it is temporary and typically disappears within a few days after the completion of whitening treatments. Desensitizing treatments can be used to help treat or prevent sensitivity if it occurs.
Q: How long do whitening results last?
Teeth whitening results are very stable, leaving your patients with a stunning smile long after treatment is over. However, there are a few factors that can make teeth lose their brightness. Things like diet and certain habits (like smoking) may affect the length of whitening results. Fortunately, touch-up treatments are quick and easy, helping your patients get that bright, white smile back.
Q: Who can whiten?
Almost anyone can successfully whiten their teeth. Opalescence whitening is effective at treating discolouration caused by age, food and drink, cigarettes, medication, or tooth trauma. Patients of all ages can whiten—from teenagers to 90-year-olds.
