Beware of Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is the most requested cosmetic procedure performed in this country. And, it can be dangerous and damaging to your teeth and health too.

Hydrogen and carabamide peroxide are used in various concentrations in combination with lasers to create enough force to whiten teeth that can also hurt them as well as your gums. Other problems associated with whitening:

  • Sensitivity
  • Calcium loss
  • Tooth enamel decay
  • Damaging nerves and losing teeth

Here's why those peroxide agents can do so much damage to your health: U.S. standards allow 30 times the concentration of peroxide than the upper limit (0.1 percent) established by the European Community Cosmetic Directive.
