Teeth Whitening Q&A

Many patients have these questions about teeth whitening treatments. Learn the answers to these commonly asked questions here:

How does professional teeth whitening compare to over-the-counter options?

Store-bought whitening toothpaste, gels, and strips are often not effective enough to brighten the tooth enamel. When teeth whitening treatment is overseen by a dental professional, patients are delivered quick results that are tailored to their smiles. Some store-bought whitening options can also cause tooth and gum sensitivity. Dr. Shruti Chahal ensures that patients with sensitive teeth can receive whitening treatment that is comfortable and pain-free.

What is the difference between take-home and in-office teeth whitening?

In-office whitening treatment can provide patients with quick results in just one visit to our office. We recommend in-office teeth whitening treatments for patients who are attending special events such as graduations, birthdays, and weddings. Take-home whitening is a great option for patients who have more sensitive teeth and want to whiten their smiles in the comfort of their own homes.

Can I whiten my dental crowns or porcelain veneers?

No, dental crowns and porcelain veneers are actually used to cover deep tooth stains. They also do not react to whitening treatments. However, if you have an old crown or veneer that has become discolored over time, we can provide you with a new cosmetic restoration.
