What You Need to Know Before Whitening

...Is that your teeth are unique. What works for a friend or family member might not be the best whitening option for you. That’s one reason why we recommend that patients meet with their dentist before starting any whitening regimen, even a home kit. Be sure to only use whitening products that have the ADA seal.

Also, let Dr. Okamura know if you’re experiencing sensitivity or other issues while whitening. We’ll recommend a fluoride toothpaste or an in-office fluoride treatment to help strengthen your enamel. Then, you’ll be able to whiten without twinges.
