Is Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Safe?

When patients at our Chatswood, NSW clinic ask us about the teeth whitening kits they can purchase in salons and shops, it’s important to remember that these are not regulated. The practitioners performing the whitening procedures do not necessarily have any dental training.

There are a number of potential problems people face when they opt for this type of teeth whitening:

  • Irritation and sensitivity to the gums and teeth

Although these may not cause permanent harm to the teeth or gums, many patients will be disappointed in the results.
