Tooth Whitening

Does whitening your teeth damage your enamel?

Whitening of teeth is generally safe without any risks, but it is to be realized that it could lead to damage of teeth enamel and also lead to gum irritations. It is mainly due to the fact that tooth whiteners are generally bleaching agents that could lead to increased sensitivity to cold and hot things. Also ingestion of these bleaching products could lead to symptoms like vomiting, nausea and acidity.

However teeth whitening done under expert dental supervision could lessen the side-effects and not lead to brittle or weakening of teeth. Sensitivity is a part of dental treatment for at least a short time after each procedure. It is also in your interest to reveal any history of gum, cavity and other dental disorders before a whitening procedure.
