Is Laser Teeth Whitening Suitable for Sensitive Teeth?

By: Dr. Victoria Veytsman


If you have sensitive teeth, you may shy away from cosmetic dental procedures because they tend to cause pain or discomfort. But this shouldn't stop you from getting the brighter, whiter smile you desire. Laser teeth whitening can still be a suitable option at Cosmetic Dental Studios in New York and Beverly Hills.

Celebrity dentist Dr. Victoria Veytsman provides smile makeovers for countless patients using top-of-the-line laser teeth whitening technology. Below, we'll discuss the benefits of teeth whitening and why it may still be a viable option for those with sensitive teeth. We'll also cover some important information to keep in mind before and after your treatment.

Why laser teeth whitening?

Even minor stains can make you feel self-conscious. Some discoloration is a normal part of aging, but lifestyle choices also impact the color of your teeth. Smoking or chewing tobacco, drinking coffee and red wine, or eating dark foods like berries all have the potential to leave behind stubborn stains that won't go away with normal brushing and flossing.

Over-the-counter whitening products like strips can only do so much to improve your appearance. And if you have sensitive teeth, they may cause more harm than good. This is why many people turn to experienced professionals for treatment. Dr. Veytsman recommends laser teeth whitening as a quick and effective way to remove stains without causing damage or further sensitivity.

Is laser teeth whitening safe?

Laser teeth whitening is considered safe for most adults. It's a noninvasive procedure that requires no anesthesia, which means it won't cause pain or discomfort. Plus, our smile makeover technology used is much gentler on teeth and gums compared to traditional whitening products and chemicals. This means there's less risk of irritation or sensitivity during and after treatment.

That said, a consultation with Dr. Veytsman is always recommended before undergoing any cosmetic dental procedure. This allows us to assess your overall health and determine if laser teeth whitening is the best option moving forward. During this appointment in New York or Beverly Hills, please inform us of any sensitivity issues or previous tooth injuries or surgeries.

To ensure the best results possible from laser teeth whitening, it's essential to follow any before and after instructions provided by Cosmetic Dental Studios. These may include:
