Frequently Asked QuestionsQuestion: Why should I go to the dentist for teeth whitening when there are so many over-the-counter products available? Answer: Over-the-counter products are typically not nearly as effective as professional whitening take-home kits from your dentist. Question: I have a lot of crowns and fillings. Will the whitening agent work on those restorations? Answer: No. Whitening agents of any kind only work on your natural teeth. Question: If I purchase a take-home whitening kit, how often can I whiten my teeth? Answer: You can whiten as often as youâ€™d like, but itâ€™s important to remember that whitening too often may increase the sensitivity of your teeth and, in some cases, can even result in a bluish tinge on your teeth. Question: My teeth are sensitive. Can I still have my teeth whitened? Answer: Whitening can increase sensitivity in your teeth, but that usually goes away fairly quickly. Still, some people with sensitive teeth find whitening to be uncomfortable. Dr. Argandona can tell you whether or not whitening would work for you.

What to Know about Teeth WhiteningWhile itâ€™s definitely true that teeth whitening is a great way to improve the appearance of your smile, itâ€™s important to remember that it may not be the right choice for everyone. If you have sensitive teeth, whitening will increase that sensitivity for a short time afterwards. Whitening products donâ€™t work on dental restorations, such as crowns and bridges, for example. And teeth whitening is not recommended for children.

Great experience at Live Oak in Leander! Friendly staff, the Dental Hygienist Janine was great and very sweet. The dentist Priscila Donangelo was amazing – very knowledgeable, attentive, explained me everything that was going on and need to be done.
Dr. Argandoña and Dr. Donangelo are both great dentists and are also very caring. They are thorough but not pushy and they try to explain everything very well. I have also found both of them to be gentle, warm and compassionate, as well as accessible when I need them!
From arrival to departure gives this dentistry office an A+. Your local neighborhood dentist gives you undivided attention and is great with kids! They always ask for permission from the parent before doing any services to the child. They are a very friendly staff.
