Is teeth whitening safe for enamel?

Would you like a whiter, brighter smile but worry that teeth whitening might damage your tooth enamel? Dr. Humbert wants to reassure you that, when performed by a trained dentist or hygienist, teeth whitening in Fort Collins will not damage your teeth or gums.

One reason that people get into trouble with teeth whitening is that they choose store-bought brands and go through the whitening process without supervision. This leaves them vulnerable to over-whitening, which can cause tooth enamel to thin.

Choosing the Right Dentist for Teeth Whitening

Choosing a cosmetic dentist to perform your teeth whitening is a wise choice for several reasons. Since Dr. Humbert already knows your oral health history, he can adjust the potency of the whitening agent to meet your needs. If you opt for in-office teeth whitening in Fort Collins, we will take steps to ensure that your teeth and gums are protected during the procedure to avoid sensitivity.

If you go with a professional take-home whitening kit, you will receive a whitening gel in a strength that’s customized for your needs. We will also give you a custom whitening tray that we create from impressions of your teeth for a snug fit that keeps the gel on your teeth and away from your gums.
