Side Effects of Teeth Whitening
- Tooth sensitivity: This is the most common side effects of teeth whitening. If previous tooth whitening sessions have led to sensitivity, you can take a pain-relieving tablet before the session begins.
- Irritation of soft tissues: The chemicals used in the teeth whitening by burning the gums if allowed to get into contact with it leading to a severe burning sensation.
- Sore gums: The gums may get inflamed during the treatment and when it finally heals, it may pull down and fail to cover the roots of the teeth. This will intensify the level of sensitivity
- Damage to teeth fillings: During the treatment process the chemicals in the whitening agents may get into the filling making it weak and it may end up coming out of the tooth cavity section thereby exposing the tooth to more harm.
- A weakening of teeth enamel: In the process of making the teeth whiter, the chemicals used will weaken the enamel especially if the tooth whitening is carried out more than once. The tooth enamel will become rough thereby losing the original appearance.
- Uneven whitening:
- Sore throat: during the teeth whitening treatment, there is a possibility of swallowing some of the whitening agents. These will irritate the throat making it become sore.
- Thermal sensitivity: After the treatment, your teeth will become very sensitive to the cold or hot substances that pass through them. The teeth will also be sensitive to the air that gets into the mouth.
