• How safe is Home Teeth Whitening?

    Teeth whitening makes teeth appear whiter, stain-free and makes the smile more aesthetically pleasing and is one of the safest and most popular procedures in dentistry.

    Hydrogen peroxide (in the active gel) is actually produced naturally in the body in small amounts.

    It’s effects on the body have been studied for many years and considered safe when used exactly as instructed.

    When home whitening is carried out according to your dentist’s instructions, it is a safe, simple treatment.

    It’s important to bear in mind however that no matter what treatment you use, there’s a chance your gums will be sensitive to the chemicals used in teeth whitening, particularly if you already have sensitive teeth.

    There’s also a chance of burns to gums and some of the whitening kits used at home can harm tooth enamel.
