How Safe Is Tooth Whitening?
Posted on 5/15/2020 by Sean Saghatchi
Even though around 20% of Americans suffer from dental anxiety, this doesn't seem to stop them from going for teeth whitening sessions. Teeth whitening is the most popular oral cosmetic procedure in the country and approximately 45 million Americans have had their teeth professionally whitened by a dentist. A huge reason for the popularity of tooth bleaching and other whitening methods is that it is virtually painless and is very safe and effective. Several whitening products are available in the market, which allow people to whiten their teeth at home with seemingly no adverse effect on the teeth and gums. In the past, using high concentrations of bleach on your teeth often resulted in sensitivity. These days, however, whitening agents are well-buffered, making sensitivity a much smaller issue.
