Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

Many people wish for a whiter and brighter smile but are nervous about the effects of bleaching and teeth whitening products. Over the years teeth whitening techniques have been well evaluated and the results obtained are guaranteed. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), whitening products contain an active bleaching ingredient like carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide. These whitening products ensure that Teeth Whitening is both safe and effective.

However, there are some minor side effects associated with teeth whitening and the area concern are:

  1. Gums: When the teeth whitening process starts a concentration of bleach is applied on the teeth and a bleaching lamp is used to increase the effectiveness of the bleach on your teeth. If the bleach touches the gums an irritation can develop and this irritation depends on the bleaching powder. The higher the concentration the greater the potential for irritation. However, our Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Tran performs Teeth Whitening in Fremont using special protection for your gums and teeth roots to make sure the bleach remains harmless.

  2. Teeth Sensitivity: Your teeth may notice some sensitivity following teeth whitening procedure. You may experience this on your first treatment and it doesn't last very long and gradually decreases with time.

  3. Dental Restoration: Bleaching can affect dental amalgam causing them to release mercury. According to the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), this is not a real health issue and choose to discontinue this type of restoration. Bleaching doesn't destroy other dental restoration like crowns and implants. If your teeth are naturally sensitive our dentist will treat them with a high concentration of fluoride several days before going for teeth bleaching.
