Is Teeth Whitening Harmful?

If you have stained or discoloured teeth, you may be considering teeth whitening treatments. Badly stained teeth can affect your confidence, and this may mean that you are reluctant to smile.

Teeth whitening is a popular procedure used to brighten your smile. It is particularly useful if you have an important event to attend or you are likely to be having photographs taken. While there are many over the counter products available, there are some risks that you need to be aware of when choosing the DIY method.

Key takeaways:

– Whitening kits contain ingredients that can irritate gum tissue.

– Overuse of kits can cause tooth sensitivity.

– Teeth whitening is not recommended for children.

Dentists use a stronger whitening agent but are trained to keep your gums and mouth tissue protected during treatment. They will also discuss tooth sensitivity and explain that some sensitivity will be experienced for a short time after treatment. Some dentists will also offer a fluoride treatment after whitening has been carried out. This helps to minimise any sensitivity after treatment.

“When done by an experienced dentist, teeth whitening doesn’t pose any serious risks to your smile.”
