Can teeth whitening damage teeth?

So, you want a radiant smile, but you may also be concerned if teeth whitening can damage your teeth. Over-the-counter teeth whitening products are becoming increasingly popular, but there is some concern that they may damage teeth. 

It is important to talk to Dr. Ruggless before using any over-the-counter teeth whitening products. He can help you determine whether the benefits are worth the risks. In general, teeth whitening is considered safe when used as directed. However, it is always best to err on the side of caution when it comes to your oral health.

Professional Teeth Whitening in Springfield, IL

Professional teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic procedure performed at home or in a professional setting. There is a difference between over-the-counter products and those you can get through our dental office in Springfield, IL—which we customize for you.

When used incorrectly and not as directed, the bleaching agents used in teeth whitening products can cause tooth enamel to become more porous, making it more susceptible to staining. Incorrect use can also irritate the gums and mucous membranes, leading to soreness and irritation. For these reasons, it is important to follow the instructions on teeth whitening products carefully and stay current with your routine dental checkups to ensure that your teeth are healthy.
