Considerations to Tooth Whitening

Extensive composite and porcelain restorations

  • If you have pre-existing cosmetic restoration (bonding, porcelain crowns, bridge, veneers or fillings ) they will not be bleached and you may need to replace them in order to match your new color shade.

Pre-existing sensitive teeth and allergies

  • Individuals with sensitive teeth and gums, receding gums and/or defective restorations should consult with their dentist prior to using a tooth whitening system. Anyone allergic to peroxide (the whitening agent) should not use a bleaching product. 2/3 of these people will experience some sensitivity for 1-4 days. This is usually reversible upon termination of bleaching.

Severe gray/blue banded tetracycline staining

  • Guarded prognosis required. Stains in the gray family (such as from tetracycline) can be harder to remove, if not impossible. These stains can take up to six months or longer to whiten. Whitening may only reduce amounts of 'masking'.

Discoloration in gingival third or exposed yellow

  • Guarded prognosis for whitening required.

Pregnant or lactating women and young children

  • No know adverse effects but avoid use as a precautionary measure.
