The Truth About Whitening Your Teeth

Posted .

If you have decided to try a teeth-whitening treatment, you are not alone. Each day, many people strive for a whiter and brighter smile. What many people do not know are the dangers over-the-counter whitening systems can cause on your teeth. That is why it is always recommended to consult your dentist before you try any teeth-whitening treatment.

We all know whitening your teeth can help improve the appearance of your smile. However, 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.
