Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

So as far as safety’s concerned, it is intrinsically very safe. So the products, particularly in Australia, of the restricted therapeutic active ingredients in the whitening products is called hydrogen peroxide ranging from three to 35%.

It’s just like any medical products; there’s some side effects, and tooth sensitivity’s a common one. Hydrogen peroxide, even at a very low concentration, it can potentially irritate the tooth and cause insensitivity, but the good news is it is usually very temporary and this can be minimised or managed very effectively.

It’s just some topical application of some re-mineralizing agent slash desensitising medications such as GC Tooth Mousse Plus, desensitising gel, or toothpaste, and I said it’s very effective.
