Will My Edmonton Teeth Whitening Hurt?
General Dentist and Cosmetic Dental Services in Edmonton, Alberta
Posted: May 7, 2014
One of the reasons many people are reluctant to visit a dentist is fear of pain and discomfort. At Focus on Smiles, we do everything to make the teeth whitening experience as pleasant as possible for our Edmonton patients.
In fact, avoiding discomfort is a prime reason to prefer in-office teeth whitening to the over-the-counter options you can find at the drug store. Because our teeth whitening treatments are custom-designed for your teeth, and because they’re applied by experienced Edmonton cosmetic dentist Dr. Christine Fialka-Eshenko, our whitening treatments are more comfortable and pleasant.
In the case of KoR Tooth Whitening, the process itself is designed to anticipate and prevent the causes of whitening-related discomfort.
If you have a history of sensitive teeth or gums, you should talk to Dr. Fialka-Eshenko and explain your concerns. She will help you decide if whitening is appropriate for you and give you instructions on how to minimize any sensitivity.
Often, reducing this sensitivity and discomfort is as simple as taking an over-the-counter painkiller (such as Tylenol or Advil) before your teeth whitening procedure.
