Teeth tend to become discolored over time as people use coffee, tobacco products, certain antibiotics, and overused fluoride. Whitening is a simple process, and it can be easily performed in our Turlock office.
There are some patients that experience teeth sensitivity after the whitening process. Due to the peroxide in the whitener, sometimes it irritates the nerve of your teeth. The teeth sensitivity occured by whitening is usually temporary, so you may delay the treatment if you experience it.
