Can teeth whitening damage my teeth?

If you have reasonably healthy teeth and gums, professional teeth whitening should be fine. However, our cosmetic dentist in Jonesboro, AR, will decide if our teeth whitening is safe based on your oral health.

Things that may influence teeth whitening include restorations, tooth damage, and cavities. In some situations, your dentist may recommend pretreatments first, including professional teeth cleaning to enhance the results of your teeth whitening. Teeth cleaning helps our whitening products better penetrate your tooth enamel to lift away stubborn stains.

While our dentist can approve you for professional teeth whitening, we can’t vouch for store-bought kits and pastes. These products can have harsh or strong ingredients that your dentist would not recommend for your teeth and gums. As a result, you can be left with lingering tooth sensitivity and even enamel damage.

Additionally, store-bought whitening kits may not give you the results you were hoping for. In some cases, the ingredients may be too weak to provide you with a significant result, which can be disappointing.
