How do I know what is right for me?
Sometimes there are health factors that deem some people unfit for having their teeth whitened, such as pregnancy, gum disease, the presence of dentures or dental implants, or discolouration caused by medicines as mentioned above.
What are the possible complications of tooth bleaching?
- Sensitivity to cold and hot
- Tooth discomfort or pain
- A short-term sensitivity to air against the teeth
The most common side effect from tooth bleaching is sensitivity to the tooth. For that reason, your dentist may provide you with a tube of tooth mousse to apply to your teeth every evening for a short period of time. Tooth mousse is a remineralising agent, which will help to preserve and protect the enamel of your teeth. For teeth whitening at Dentistry Plus Joondalup, our dentist gives you tooth mousse to wear for a week before the bleaching, to help resist sensitivity.
