Before Bleach : Before either option the dentist will evaluate your teeth and oral hygiene to be sure you are a good candidate for bleaching. Here are some things to keep in mind :

2) You must treat any pre-existing conditions before bleaching. (i.e. filling, scaling, extractions, etc.)
3) Please inform the dentist if you have sensitive teeth or any other special considerations.
