Teeth bleaching can be considered admittedly a safe procedure, but nevertheless there are three side-effects that we have observed.

1)Increased sensitivity.

During bleaching and for a limited time after the end of the procedure,it is common phenomenon of increased tooth sensitivity.

This occurs because of exposure of dentin during the procedure.People who suffer from sensitive teeth in general, it is necessary to consult their dentist for a whitening formula that suits them, so as not to worsen their problem.

2)Irritation of tissues.

It is known as “chemical burn”  and it can occur if the gums are exposed to bleaching agent during the process. When soft tissues come in contact with the whitening agent they acquire a white color immediately.

Their natural color will eventually return. Prolonged exposure to bleaching agents can even cause inflammation in the area.In extreme cases we may notice bleeding and pain.

3)Adverse effects.

Depending on the original color of your teeth, the results achieved after the bleaching of your teeth may not be satisfactory. There are cases that the patient did not observe a significant change after whitening.

Last but not least,people that whiten their teeth quite often they will notice over time,a gray tint to their teeth.
