Does professional teeth whitening cause tooth sensitivity?

Professional teeth whitening in Huntsville, AL means allowing our prescription-strength whitening gel to penetrate your tooth enamel and break down stain molecules. While this can create tooth sensitivity at times, it does nothing to harm your teeth and has a long track record of safety. Additionally, Dr. Brian Cook will not prescribe a teeth whitening treatment unless your oral health suggests a safe whitening experience. Woman smiling after teeth whitening in Huntsville

It’s important to remember that tooth sensitivity is temporary, but you reduce the likelihood of sensitivity by following the instructions provided by our dental office and not using over-the-counter products. When you use store-bought systems, you are not under the discretion of a dental professional. And the treatment may be abrasive and lead to tooth sensitivity.
