Tooth Whitening

Tooth whitening also known as bleaching, brightens teeth that have become discolored or stained. Our office offers two take home systems for use at your convenience.

Is Teeth Whitening Painful?

In the United States, teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic treatment. However, as with any treatment, there is a potential for side effects and complications. They may sometimes be painful or uncomfortable.

If you have sensitive teeth, you’ll probably feel discomfort when bleaching agents are applied to them. Dentists offer teeth whitening treatments that don’t usually hurt, but you can also use a take-home kit. If you are experiencing discomfort, your dentist can discuss options to reduce it or recommend an alternative treatment.

At  “Hoggard & Morris Family Dentistry”, we use Philips ZoomTM teeth whitening to help patients with sensitive teeth feel less uncomfortable.
