Is Teeth Whitening Safe For Me?


Hello, I’m Dr. Grey Kantor here with Kantor Dental Group in San Rafael, California.

Today, I want to talk about whether or not whitening your teeth is safe. A lot of people ask me this question namely because they may have had sensitivity in their whitening treatment previously.

The quick answer is yes. Whitening at the dental office is very safe. We use either carbohydrate peroxide or hydrogen peroxide to whiten teeth. Different levels depending on different percentages, depending on the type of treatment we do. Whether at home or at the office; in the office being a much higher percentage.

We do it in a safe manner where it may make the teeth sensitive, but it will be a transient sensitivity. So, not to worry. Nothing will hurt your teeth. They’ll just look whiter. If the sensitivities too much, please just use ibuprofen to reduce the sensitivity. But again, it should only last a couple days.

If you have any more questions about teeth whitening or how to make your smile brighter. Give us a call here at Kantor Dental Group in San Rafael, California. Aesthetic dentistry and implantology, please subscribe.
