Is it that every teeth can be whitened through the whitening process? 

Not every teeth can reach the same level of whiteness. Regardless of the whitening method or materials used, each teeth has a maximum whiteness beyond which it will not whiten further. Decayed, root canaled (nerve tissue removed) teeth, and exposed teeth roots will not have better levels of whiteness. Most people, after whitening their teeth, get an opaque sort of whiteness, but if their teeth were more transparent in color prior to whitening, then they may appear even more transparent after whitening, such that it becomes hard to tell they have been whitened.

Gum sensitivity issues?

Only a very few of individuals with existing gum inflammation or periodontal issues have a higher likelihood of having gum swelling or gum surface peeling, but the issue usually goes away in about a day. When the whitener comes in contact with your gum, they become white. Most teeth whiteners are forms of peroxides, and when you use a peroxide to clean and disinfect wounded skin, the surface likewise turns white. When using a mouth tray, take care to use the prescribed amount of whitening gel, as detailed in the user instructions. Do not use too much whitening gel, as the excess could easily seep out of the mouth tray and contact your gum. Doing this would help prevent related problems.

You may also try to make your gum healthier prior to whitening. After teeth scaling at the dentist’s, it should help if you wait a week or two before you whiten your teeth. Also, it may help if you use soft bristled tooth brushes and brush your teeth in a lighter, more appropriate brushing. These methods can help you ensure that your gums are not unhealthy when you undergo whitening.

The earliest form of teeth whitening was discovered because many dentists who specialized in gum inflammation (periodontal disease) tried to cure periodontal disease by having their patients wear mouth trays filled with teeth whiteners (peroxides) and found that the process also whitens teeth. If these whiteners were used to treat periodontal disease, you can be sure they will not cause health risks.

To help desensitize, we recommend using the “Vitamin E & Aloe Q-tip Swab” on your gums.

Will there be white spots on teeth? 

Only a very few of individuals find white spots on their teeth after whitening, but the color of these spots actually soften and will gradually disappear into your natural tooth coloring within a few days, or even a few hours. These white spots are temporary and do not cause any harm. The white spots are not caused by whitening. In fact, they have existed on your teeth prior to whitening; you simply did not notice them because your teeth were in darker shades prior to whitening, making the spots inconspicuous. These spots are the so-called “teeth decalcification” (mild decay). During the whitening process it dehydrate the teeth surface temporarily, these white spots become more conspicuous after whitening. Drinking water or saliva re-moistens the teeth, softening the spots and they will gradually disappear.

The “Tooth Remineralizing Gel” was created for this problem specifically.  The Remineralizing Gel works on the principle of repairing the teeth through recalcification.
