Teeth Whitening…is it safe?

Written by Dr. Alice Vessel

In this video Dr. Alice Vessel, DMD will share with you proper ways to do teeth whitening and some of the options you have available.

Does whitening your teeth damage your enamel? Well, the whitening products today in office use two different types of chemicals. One is carbamide peroxide and the other is hydrogen peroxide. When you bleach your teeth, the gel goes all the way through the tooth, it does cause it to be a bit more porous, however that only lasts for about 2 hours, once your saliva remineralizes it. So hold the red wine after whitening your teeth.
