Does teeth whitening treatment hurt?


Teeth Whitening Treatment

Brightening the smile is a desire of many patients in the area of Brentwood, CA. While there are teeth whitening treatment options available over-the-counter at local drugstores, many of these products fail to provide effective results. This is when individuals may be encouraged to look into professional whitening solutions at their local dental practice. Dr. Jamil Alkhoury and the team at Brentwood Family Dental work closely with patients to help them determine if whitening at a dental office is advantageous.

Treatment options

We offer two methods of whitening at Brentwood Family Dental, including:
  • In-office power bleaching
  • Take-home whitening kits

Which is right for me?

The in-office power bleaching allows patients the chance to brighten their smile dramatically in just one appointment, while the take-home whitening kits are better suited for patients seeking long-term, gradual whitening in the privacy of their own homes. Dr. Jamil Alkhoury will consult with patients to decide which is best.

Does teeth whitening hurt?

No! Both methods of teeth whitening are comfortable to undergo. Some patients may experience some slight sensitivity of their teeth following whitening, but this is short-term and will go away within approximately one week following treatment. Sensitivity experienced with our whitening products is far less than those available over-the-counter, even with the higher concentration of ingredients.

How does take-home whitening work?

Instead of using our in-office power bleaching, some patients choose to whiten at home for gradual results. We take impressions to make custom trays for each individual, and then send patients home with professional-strength bleaching gels.

Many patients, both men and women, strive to have a beautiful smile!
