Is Tooth Whitening a Safe Procedure to OPT for?
Your smile is the first thing that people notice in you and that is why you should take
good care of it. One of the most preferred treatments for retaining this smile is by going
for teeth whitening. Over a decade, bleaching and other types of whitening methods
have proven to be effective and safe.
No adverse effects on the teeth or gums have been shown in the substantial laboratory
and clinical testing by several products that are available in the market today. Earlier,
the higher concentrations of bleach in case of the treatments that were conducted inhouse resulted in greater amount of sensitivity.
Nowadays, however, the bleaching gels are much more buffered that lead to lesser
amount of sensitivity. Sensitivity occurs among people when they consume hot or cold
foods after the whitening procedure is done with. But usually they disappear after 48
hours and is gone completely when the treatment stops.
In some cases however, your dentist may discourage the dental bleaching procedure.

If you have crowns (that are tooth-coloured), caps or other dental work in your
front tooth that cannot be bleached.

nitrate that helps to soothe tooth nerve ending

several days. Within a day the sensitivity will stop. The less sensitivity you will
experience the longer you whiten the teeth.
You can ask your pharmacist or your dentist for a product that contains fluoride. It
helps to re-mineralize the teeth. Wear in your trays or brush on about four minutes
before and after whitening your teeth.
