A Whiter Smile Without The Sensitivity

Time, food choices, beverages, tobacco products and even medications can all age your smile and stain your teeth. When it comes to correcting discoloration, we know that an economical and convenient solution is a high priority.
While a pearly white picture can be easily achieved with a click of an editing button on your cell phone, a truly whiter smile takes a little more effort - and we don't mean a walk down the dental care aisle of your store.
You might be tempted by the price and easy availability of DIY teeth bleaching system, but a slightly brighter smile may not be the only thing you get. As many as 3 out of 4 people end up with tooth sensitivity from teeth whitening kits. Don't be one of them!
Skip The Pain
When something hurts, we avoid it - and for many people, that means stopping their whitening treatment prematurely. At Rock Point Family Dentistry, we can tailor your teeth whitening to protect your delicate gums and prevent tooth discomfort - and you can't find that in a box.
If you're prone to sensitivity, but want pearly whites without the pain, we may recommend...
- Special whitening with soothing desensitizing additives.
- Tailored formulas with a lower concentration of the whitening agent, less time wearing it, or more time between treatments
- Brushing your teeth before your product application, and not immediately after. In some cases, you may want to opt for toothpaste designed for sensitive smiles.
- Steering clear of hot or cold foods and beverages, which can aggravate already sensitive teeth.
Call our Cedar Park office today and schedule your teeth whitening consultation!
