• Are there any complications that can occur with home teeth whitening?

    Minor complications can occur on rare occasions and are highlighted by gum irritation and heightened cold sensitivity in the enamel of teeth. If this occurs you must stop using the kit and talk to your dentist as soon as you can.

    If a whitening treatment isn’t performed correctly, you could risk injury or uneven results. If the bleaching agent comes into contact with your gums or other soft tissues in your mouth, there may be a risk of chemical burns.

    That’s why it’s important to at least consult a dental professional about any whitening product before using it.

    It is also a good idea to talk first with your dentist to see if all your teeth will be likely to whiten evenly.

    There are certain types of staining your teeth can get that do not respond to bleaching, for example certain types of antibiotic drugs (like tetracycline) that may have been used during childhood that won’t be whitened.

    At-home whitening kits from Dental Care Professionals contain professional whitening ingredients and trays that are specially formulated for you, unlike those available off-the-shelf from your chemist or local supermarket.
