Teeth whitening FAQ's

How much whiter will my teeth be?

Your teeth will be upwards of eight shades whiter from the initial shade. However, the degree of whiteness hinges on the hue your desire and the level of staining on your teeth. Even the mineral content of your teeth plays a role in determining the whitest possible shade.

Does teeth whitening damage teeth?

Not in our office. Our teeth whitening methods do not cause any short-term or long-term damage to tooth enamel or dentin. We can help ensure to protect your gums during the procedure in our office

Can teeth whitening gel be used on sensitive teeth?

The tolerance for teeth whitening gel hinges from one individual to the next. Certain patients endure reversible tooth sensitivity. Some patients have gum irritation after the use of whitening gel. However, reducing the length of teeth bleaching sessions and upping the length of time between sessions will minimize sensitivity and irritation.

Tooth Gem FAQ's

Does the application procedure hurt?

Not at all. The procedure is similar to placing an orthodontic bracket (braces) on a tooth. There is no drilling involved and the procedure is completely painless.

Will I feel the crystal on my tooth?

Swarovski Crystals are small in diameter (only 2mm). Initially something on your tooth will feel different, but a few days after the application you will get used to the new feeling.

How do I remove the tooth jewellery when I no longer want it?

Our tooth jewelry is 100% reversible. The procedure is the same as attaching an orthodontic bracket (braces).  Therefore a dental professional must remove the tooth gem.  The tooth will be buffed and polished to remove any remaining bonding material

What are the benefits of getting my teeth whitened in-office?

In-office teeth whitening is safer for your enamel and more effective at getting the whiteness level you want compared to store-bought whitening kits. In-office whitening treatments also yield very bright results after one application. It may take weeks of using a potentially damaging store-bought kit to achieve the desired results.
