Is teeth whitening safe?

For most healthy patients, teeth whitening is completely safe and comfortable. One of the many benefits of teeth whitening in our Toowoomba dental clinic is that you will work closely with an experienced dentist who will help you decide which teeth whitening option is right for you. Zoom! Whitening comes in both hydrogen and carbamide peroxide as well as different strengths.

In some cases, gum recession can expose the roots of the teeth, leading to additional sensitivity. If you do experience sensitivity, contact us to discuss your options. If you have sensitive teeth after beginning whitening, take a day or two off between your at-home treatments. Be sure to only use the recommended amount of gel to minimise how much seeps onto the gums.

We also offer fluoride treatments and desensitisers to improve comfort during whitening.

You can save your trays and touch up your smile whenever it needs a boost.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
