Tolerable Teeth Whitening Risks

Teeth whitening products and services are available anywhere. Proper procedure must be taken in action in order to get the desired. Yet there are certain results and effects of the whitening method that aren’t tolerable. There are certain risks concerning bleaching and whitening system which you have to know prior to any procedure you want to apply. Below are some of them:


Sensitivity is a temporary reaction of the gums and teeth as soon as the process has been started. This can be increased as soon as the temperature, touch and pressure are associated to the teeth. Mostly, the higher the concentration of the whitening gel solution is used, the higher the risk to sensitivity. In some case the front teeth will be able to experience the shooting pain to the middle of them.

Individuals with the greater risk to this are those experiencing gum recession, cracks and leakage on the teeth due to improper teeth restoration. Without any worries, this sensitivity of the teeth cannot extend to more than two day. However this can affect the mouth as well so the dentist will have to recommend you to use toothpaste with potassium nitrate.

Gum Irritation

Gum irritation is also a common experience to those who apply the peroxide contained in whiteners. This concentration can contact with the gums due to whitening trays leakage. This kind of irritation will last only some few days and will eventually disperse after you stop the bleaching or lowered the peroxide concentration.

Technicolor Teeth

Moreover, the technicolor teeth are effects that happened on the dental, crowns bond, and restorations. This maintains the default color, surrounding the whitened teeth. To avoid this effect, the colored tooth restorations are necessary to be replaced after the bleaching processes.

In cosmetic bonding, these porcelain veneers as well as the other restorations are treated to be part of the treatment program. They should be scheduled to be installed two or more weeks after bleaching to ensure correct adhesive bonding as well as shade matching.

Upon bleaching, it is necessary to wait until its two weeks’ time after any bleaching and whitening treatment. So to be able to avoid this risk, make sure to ask the condition of the teeth and the possible expectation to have in the process of teeth whitening and bleaching. Also if this things continue to persist, consult your dentist and ask for other pain relievers and options to prevent a further problem.
