Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

Watch this video to learn more about any potential risk or discomfort when receiving teeth whitening treatment at home or in our office.

You made up your mind you’d like whiter teeth and you think teeth whitening may be what you need. Well, maybe you can have it. Maybe you can’t. A thorough exam is always necessary before professional whitening is done. We don’t want to irritate a deep cavity or gum disease or any number of things that bleaching may adversely affect.

While bleaching is harmless for most people’s teeth, a thorough exam is necessary before any professional strength bleaching is used. So give us a call so we can do a thorough examination before we begin any bleaching process.
