Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

This is a common question we get asked. People want whiter teeth but are worried about the effects of bleaching may have on their teeth.

Hydrogen Peroxide is the active ingredient, which helps in whitening teeth and is both very effective and safe and has been used by the dental industry for years. It is the same ingredient we used in whitening toothpastes, mouth washes, and in our specifically created gel. It does not change or damage the structure of teeth, there is no harm done to the enamel, dentine or the teeth at all; it merely makes teeth whiter and brighter.

While whitening products have a very good safety record, it is possible to injure your teeth if you use them incorrectly, overuse them or use one of poor quality. Some people may experience irritation or sensitivity on gums due to the hydrogen peroxide.

This is why at Smile Labs one of our professional technicians we assist in administering the whitening gel, avoiding gums. We explain the process pre treatment, monitor you during your treatment and provide post care information.

We apply a photosensitive and specifically formulated gel on your teeth, then using mouth retractors expose teeth to our Blue Infinity™ Pro SL whitening light. With our teeth whitening process expect to see immediate results after your treatment. Our process has proven to provide 30% better results than home whitening products, and depending on your lifestyle should last 6-12 months, longer if you monitor your teeth hygiene frequently.
