You may notice that your teeth are sensitive during the bleaching process and for a short period after the procedure. This is due to the exposure of the dentin layer during the whitening process. If you have tooth sensitivity before you decide to whiten, consult your dentist beforehand for advice on what teeth whitening options are suitable for your situation. Shop our whitening kit here
Soft Tissue Irritation
Also known as a chemical burn, soft tissue irritation may occur if the whitening solution is exposed to the gum tissue during the whitening process. When soft tissue irritation occurs, your gums will generally appear white immediately after they come into contact with the whitening solution, especially if you’ve been exposed to the professional in-office teeth whitening solution.
Depending on the initial shade of your teeth, the results achieved after whitening your teeth may not be what you were hoping for. If you have heavy staining or internal tooth discoloration, you may not notice a change in the shade of your teeth after whitening. If you whiten your teeth too often, you may notice that your teeth begin to appear gray or translucent, as opposed to the creamy white shade everyone desires to see after whitening their teeth.
