There are many different kinds of teeth-whitening treatments available. There are at-home teeth-whitening toothpastes, whitening strips, and even whitening mouthwashes. However, if you are not careful, the whitening treatment can cause tooth sensitivity and can damage the roots of your teeth. That is why the first step to whitening your teeth should always be to talk to your dentist. Your dentist has treatments available that are safe and healthy. Your dentist can also give you advice on how to whiten your teeth safely and effectively from home.
With the holiday season approaching, it’s only natural to want an extra boost or shine to get you through the holidays. Over-the-counter teeth-whitening systems can cause many side effects. Some side effects include increased tooth sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, gum tissue irritation, nausea, root damage, and, in some cases, vomiting. If you would like a whitening treatment that will not provide these side effects, please contact your dentist.
