Is Teeth Whitening Safe

Many of us would like to have whiter teeth but at the same time we are nervous about the effects that whitening could have on our teeth. So, is teeth whitening or bleaching safe? The answer is YES, the teeth whitening procedure is considered safe as long as it is performed as recommended by your dentist.

Over time, teeth may be discolored or stained for a variety of reasons. If you want to make them bright and attractive, you can do so safely with a visit to a dentist or you could try at-home whitening products. The teeth whitening techniques are safe and effective as it has been well documented over the years. However, there are few minor side-effects which can be a concern after teeth whitening treatment.

Tooth sensitivity and gum irritation: Your teeth might become slightly sensitive following the teeth whitening procedure. This is usually experienced on your first or second treatment. You may also experience gum irritation, this is mainly because of the gums coming into contact with whitening products. This side effects should diminish overtime.

Our Reviews

Dr Heaton is as kind as he is competent. He treats me like a person, not a paycheck and I feel like I can trust him to only recommend what I need. I also referred an employee of mine who needed serious dental care and did not have a lot of money. Dr Heaton was flexible and kind and so helpful. Highly Recommend.

Most people dread going to the dentist but I'm always excited to go especially when it means seeing all of the wonderful people who work there. My family has been going here for more than 20 years and I've never had a bad experience. You can count on walking out the door with a huge (minty fresh) smile on your face. Highly recommended!
