Common Side Effects
Tooth sensitivity is the most common side effect of teeth whitening.
If sensitivity occurs, it is often temporary and will go away once you've completed the whitening process.
Here at Dr. DiStefano’s office we recommend using a sensitivity toothpaste while using any whitening system and limiting your consumption of acidic foods and drinks.
According to the American Dental Association, using a whitening product too much can also damage the tooth enamel or gums, so when considering a whitening option, make sure you follow the guidelines recommended by your dentist before putting anything on your teeth.
