Before Teeth whitening

Patients need to make sure all of their teeth are healthy, and they should talk to the dentist about the choices they have to whiten their teeth. The dentist may examine the patient: taking a health and dental history (including allergies and sensitivities), observe hard and soft tissues, placement and conditions of restorations, and sometimes x-rays to determine the nature and depth of possible irregularities.

During Teeth whitening

Patients reported that their teeth became sensitive to heat or cold and mild irritation during or after the procedure. If it happens during the procedure, they can reduce the time for wearing teeth or stop it for 2-3 days. But after treatment finishes, if sensitivity remains, they can use sensitive kinds of toothpaste, and it will not last for a long.
