Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

Whitening Procedures at Sarasota Dental Arts

Teeth whitening has been a popular procedure for many years, and millions of people have used whitening products safely – including many dentists. Dental professionals have not seen an increase in risks like cavities or tooth fractures as a result of whitening procedures. At Sarasota Dental Arts, we strive to provide only the safest teeth whitening services for our patients in Sarasota.

Side Effects of Teeth Whitening

Teeth sensitivity – After getting your teeth whitened, you may experience some sensitivity. This could happen after your first or second treatment and can potentially lessen over time. Ask Dr. Aygen or Dr.Strumpf at your next appointment for any products they might recommend that could help treat this sensitivity.

Irritated gums – We take extra precautions to reduce the risk of gingival irritation, which happens when the gums become inflamed. If any of the whitening products come into contact with the gums, it can cause irritation. We make sure to use processes that minimize this risk.

Benefits of teeth whitening

It is safe – The American Dental Association (ADA) has stated that hydrogen peroxide whiteners are safe and effective.

It is a quick process – Professional teeth whitening results can be seen after just one session rather than the lengthy process of at-home products.

It saves time – It is not necessary to get professional teeth whitening done very often; in fact, too much whitening can be harmful to your teeth. By having just a few whitening sessions with a professional, you can get the bright, white smile you desire.

You don’t have to worry about the safety – At Sarasota Dental Arts, we treat your teeth as if they are our own. We only offer the safest procedures in our office and the side effects of teeth whitening usually only occur with at-home products that can harm your smile.

If you are concerned about the safety of an at-home teeth whitening product or your upcoming teeth whitening procedure, Sarasota Dental Arts can help. Our professional teeth whitening services are safe and effective, and we are here to answer any questions you may have.
