Tooth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental procedure that aims to brighten your smile by removing stains and discolouration. While it can provide stunning results, it’s essential to understand that there can be side effects associated with this treatment.

Common Side Effects of Tooth Whitening

  1. Tooth Sensitivity: One of the most common side effects is tooth sensitivity. Some people may experience increased sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures after a whitening treatment. This occurs because the whitening agents can temporarily open the pores in your teeth, exposing the nerve endings.
  2. Gum Irritation: Whitening gels can sometimes come into contact with your gums, leading to irritation or even mild burns. This is why it’s crucial to have a professional dentist or hygienist perform the treatment to ensure precise application.
  3. Uneven Whitening: Achieving perfectly even whitening results can be challenging. Some teeth may whiten more than others, leading to an uneven appearance. However, this can often be minimised with professional guidance.
  4. Relapse: Over time, your teeth can naturally revert to their previous shade due to various factors like diet and lifestyle. This is known as relapse, and it’s not uncommon after tooth whitening.
  5. Enamel Damage: Although rare, excessive or improperly administered tooth whitening treatments can damage tooth enamel. It’s vital to follow your dentist’s recommendations and not overuse at-home whitening products.

Minimising Side Effects

To minimise these side effects, consider the following tips:

  • Consult a dental professional like us for your tooth whitening treatment.
  • Use desensitising toothpaste to alleviate sensitivity.
  • Avoid consuming staining substances like coffee, red wine, and tobacco after the procedure.
  • Follow our dentist’s instructions on at-home whitening products.

I had a painless tooth extraction done by Dr Sandro Rasgado, who is a fantastic Dr, and very knowledgable. I was very nervous but he made me feel right at ease. Thank you Dr Sandro for the wisdom teeth you removed, and the wisdom you shared too!

I recently completed by Invisalign treatment with Dr Tehseen Khan and had a fantastic experience with her and the team. I had my first consultation with her in 2019 and only started Invisalign in 2022 yet she still gave me the same quote I received previously. Her professionalism throughout and willingness to answer all the questions I asked made my experience smooth and easy from day 1. My teeth look incredible only after 14 weeks and I cannot be happier with the results!

Dr Khan has deep knowlege and expertise in Invisalign and I felt very reassured throughout that I was having the best possible care. And I am very pleased with the resuts!

Oh, the relief! After a poor crown on a tooth six months ago at another dentist, Dr Vaishali Bhowmick replaced it last week. It changed from trapping food and dental floss to being smooth and the same gap as the other teeth. Thank you, Nigel
