Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

Stained teeth can be disheartening, but your dentist in Merrillville, IN offers professional teeth whitening to restore brightness.

Professional teeth whitening is safe because your dentist evaluates your oral health before recommending this cosmetic treatment. We also take precautions to ensure our whitening gel stays on your teeth and away from your gums. Whitening gel on gums is typically the culprit when it comes to ongoing tooth sensitivity following whitening.

We keep the gel off your gums by creating custom whitening trays that fit the unique contours of your teeth. You take these trays home—along with our custom whitening gel—and whiten your smile on your time.

However, whitening your teeth without a dentist’s approval may not be the best course. Over-the-counter whitening products can be too harsh for your enamel. Additionally, these kits may not fit your teeth, allowing product spillage onto the gums and tooth sensitivity.

For an even and predictable whitening experience and outcome, we recommend professional teeth whitening in Merrillville, IN.
