Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

Young couple in love

Are your teeth looking more yellow than white? This is a common complaint, and it can be associated with age, diet and lifestyle factors. You don’t have to settle for a smile that is less than stellar: Teeth whitening can give you back that sparkle and let you flash those pearly whites once again.

One big concern of many people is whether whitening is safe. Whitening is indeed safe and effective especially when performed by a dental professional. We use a special peroxide formula, and when it is applied to your teeth, the peroxide breaks down into oxygen and water. The oxygen breaks up the stains into smaller, less visible molecules, and the structure of your teeth is left unchanged.

Whitening products can lead to soft tissue irritation if used inappropriately, but with supervision by a dental professional, you can be confident of getting great results in a safe environment each time you whiten. Some patients may have mild sensitivity after whitening, but this usually lasts just a few days.

You can keep your teeth white by avoiding staining substances and practicing good dental hygiene. Call our teeth whitening dentist today to learn more or to schedule your whitening appointment.
