Will bleaching cause my teeth to be more sensitive?
One of the more common side effects of teeth whitening is tooth sensitivity. Dr. Banks carefully supervises teeth whitening treatments to ensure minimal side effects. The products we use are specially formulated to virtually eliminate sensitivity.

How long does whitening last?
The results of teeth whitening will vary based on each individual. Most patients can expect results to last up to a year or more.

Visiting the dentist regularly and avoiding smoking and dark foods or beverages will also help to keep your teeth white and bright.
