Often, we get clients asking about our teeth whitening treatment and if it will make their teeth sensitive. Sensitive teeth is an issue that many people deal with. It can be caused by receding gums or enamel loss.
It is understandable that some people would be hesitant to get teeth whitening done because they’re concerned about the pain. Being completely honest, after a teeth whitening treatment, it is normal and expected that you will feel some sensitivity afterwards, however the sensitivity only lasts between 24-48 hours. Of course, everyone’s teeth are different, and we have had some clients who didn’t experience any sensitivity at all.
Another concern our clients have is the effect of teeth whitening on their enamel. This is a valid concern because enamel loss can cause sensitive teeth. Our treatment doesn’t hurt your enamel. Our whole teeth whitening treatment process basically just breaks down the stains that have built up on your teeth over time.
People’s teeth are naturally lighter when they’re young. They only get stained because of the things we do, eat and drink. Our treatment just removes those stains, bringing back the natural colour of our teeth.
We have had several clients with sensitive teeth, including our employees, who have gotten their teeth whitened. Their experiences have been good overall as the sensitivity was either bearable or went away a day after their treatment.
As much as possible, we at Smile Labs Parramatta want our clients to feel comfortable throughout and after their treatment. We have 4 different sessions available, 3 shorter sessions if the 1 hour is too long. We can also discuss other options to cater to your situation so that you still get the whiter and brighter smile you want.
So, don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth because we guarantee we’ll still get you a whiter and brighter smile! If you have other concerns, our team is ready to talk you through them, so pop in and we’ll take good care of you! We’re located walking distance from the station and Westfield Parramatta, (inside Fitness First) open 6 days a week, and we take after work bookings.
