Health Tip: Tooth Whitening Safety
(HealthDay News) -- Tooth whitening is a cosmetic treatment that can remove unsightly stains. From dental office procedures to at-home whiteners, there are many safe and effective whitening options, says the American Dental Association.
Before whitening, the ADA encourages people to:
Check with your dentist. Whitening is not recommended for everyone.
For over-the-counter options, only use products that bear the ADA seal of acceptance.
Do not use household items to whiten teeth.
Be aware of the possible inflammation and tooth sensitivity that may follow whitening.
