Professional teeth whitening treatments provided under the supervision of a qualified and registered dentist is unlikely to cause damage to healthy teeth.

As teeth are porous, it's possible for teeth to dehydrate and become sensitive immediately after in-chair whitening. However, this condition is temporary as teeth become rehydrated after 2 to 7 days.

Your dentist will provide you with after-care instructions at your appointment on how to look after your smile. If you're concerned about increased tooth sensitivity, ask your dentist about a sensitive toothpaste to use.  

In-chair teeth whitening that is professionally done by a registered dentist is the safest and quickest way to whiten teeth, it also contains a high concentration of bleaching agent (up to 25% hydrogen peroxide). A dentist is able to check your suitability for whitening, show you the shade you can expect to achieve through treatment and perform the treatment safely – that means properly protecting your gums, soft tissues and any sensitive areas like cracks, receding gums or worn edges that might not be obvious to the untrained eye.

Take home whitening kits can be just as effective when provided under the supervision of your dentist. Home kits contain lower concentrations of bleaching agent (up to 6% by Australian law) so it takes longer to achieve the same result as it would in the chair. EVP Dental uses the #1 patient requested whitening brand Philips ZOOM! which is more cost-effective than in-chair whitening using the same brand.

Take-home teeth whitening kits provided by a dentist are very safe and effective. There are many online retail outlets selling home whitening products that don’t work or that may pose a risk to patients who are not suitable for teeth whitening. When used inappropriately, these DIY whitening kits can cause irreversible damage to teeth and gums.

Yes, if your dentist believes you’re a suitable candidate for teeth whitening. Contact EVP Dental about whitening options for sensitive teeth and what can be done to alleviate any sensitivity experienced after treatment. In-chair whitening at EVP Dental includes a post-treatment gel designed to reduce sensitivity. Your dentist may also recommend using a sensitive toothpaste at home.
