Are there any drawbacks to bleaching?
It’s important to know that existing crowns and tooth-colored fillings will not lighten with bleaching, so some dental restorations may need to be replaced to match the new whiter color. And for some, peroxide can cause temporary sensitivity or gum irritation. However, our patients at Brazos Valley Dental Arts have reported minimal sensitivity while following our bleaching protocol, and the sensitivity dissipates as soon as bleaching is completed. Also, we use only top-quality professional carbamide peroxide, such as Night White, Day White, and Opalescence, at varying concentrations to accommodate each patient’s need, and our bleach has additives to reduce sensitivity. Let Dr. Erratt and Dr. Reeh and our team of dental professionals help you get a brighter smile!
