Will teeth whitening hurt?

It shouldn't, but if you have certain conditions, such as gum recession, we may need to alter your treatment.

Most professional whitening products contain a desensitising ingredient that protects sensitive teeth and keeps you comfortable during your treatment. Additionally, the customisable nature of professional whitening treatments prevents the product from coming into contact with soft tissues like your gums, lips, and tongue. 

If your teeth are sensitive, please talk to us so that we can help you determine whether whitening is appropriate for you.
