How Safe Is Tooth Whitening?

How Safe Is Tooth Whitening?

Nobody is happy with their teeth and everybody wants whiter, brighter teeth. In the last few decades, tooth whitening is one of the most commonly done cosmetic dental procedures. Majority of these people are in the age of 10 to 25, who are very conscious about their looks.

What needs to be understood is that dental whitening is permissible to a certain extent. Not many people realize this and continue to use teeth whiteners even after the desired result is achieved in an effort to get it a couple of more shades lighter. This is something that we need to watch our for. 

Safety of tooth whitening: Some of the supposedly unsafe aspects of tooth whitening are most products used currently are tested both on patients and in laboratory and are proven to be completely safe. However, overuse or misuse of these products can lead to issues. The active chemical ingredient in most of these products is hydrogen peroxide. Most of the products contain about 10% carbamide peroxide, which breaks into hydrogen peroxide and urea. There are claims that this is carcinogenic. However, this is not the case and there is no strong correlation. Also, if the application is done correctly, there is very minimal exposure to hydrogen peroxide directly.

The second issue that most people associate with tooth whitening is  tooth sensitivity and gum irritation. Both these symptoms are directly related to the percentage of carbamide peroxide. It is shown that products with more than 10% produce more teeth sensitivity and gum irritation than those that contain less than 10%. Improper tray selection can lead to gum irritation. Also, patients who are overzealous and go about whitening their teeth further can end up with severe sensitivity. The explanation in these cases is the enamel is worn off by the chemical leading to exposed dentinal tubules which, even when exposed due to caries, can cause sensitivity.

Listed below are some ways to avoid or reduce sensitivity: 

  1. When using the bleaching tray applicator, use it only for the recommended period of time. Do not keep it longer to make the teeth whiter.
  2. Use a paste that is meant for sensitive teeth. The potassium nitrate in these will help relieve sensitivity.
  3. Use a product with fluoride so that the teeth can remineralize. This can be used before and after tooth whitening for up to 4 minutes.

It is advisable to avoid tooth whitening in some cases like the following

  1. Pregnancy
  2. Breast feeding
  3. Ceramic crowns or bridges in the front teeth - these cannot be bleached
  4. Gingival disease with gum recession and exposed root - the sensitivity is sure to quite high

To avail the best results, always use clinically proven products under the supervision of a dentist.

My teeth are full of yellow colour. Now I need to clean it. Is the teeth will in pure white after cleaning by consulting the dentist?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
Cause of discoloration ? Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or capping. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use Snowdent toothpaste for whitening until then. Apply SNOWDENT paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min .Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results. DENTAL TIPS: - Visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

Kindly get the root canal treatment done of the tooth having pain followed by a crown or cap. Till then you can take a pain killer like tab ketorol dt 2 tablets dissolved in water. Also get the cavity filled before it becomes deep and painful. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.

BDS
Dentist, Pune
Lybrate-user mostly the gums bleed when they are unhealthy & inflamed, so get your scaling & polishing done at a dentist place, so that they can remove the plaque and calculus deposited over your teeth which will make your gums healthy again, do warm saline gargles thrice a day & use a soft bristle toothbrush.

I am 40 yrs old, my gums are receding up and as a result the roots of teeth are showing and a gap is created between gums and teeth. What is it? how will it be cured?

MDS
Dentist, Kota
This is age change but it occurs fast when you do not maintain oral hygiene properly. Treatment of the gaps depend upon the size, location. Sometimes it can not be filled. To prevent further damage you have to be punctual about hygiene and follow-up visits to dentist.

Sir I have yellow teeth from last four years I take many medicine but cant get result will you help me please.

BDS
Dentist, Ghaziabad
Hi. The yellow colour of teeth is the colour of your dentin that reflects thru the enamel. You cannot change it only bleaching is the solution for badly yellowish teeth that will stay only as long you will maintain your teeth. But if the stains are external then ultra sonic scaling will help.

My daughter who is 9 years old, has a problem with her tooth. Her tooths are not falling off normally. It is removed only after going to a dentist. Now it is seen that several small new teeths have started appearing behind the old one's. Doctor says that surgery should be done. What should we do?

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Sir surgery is usually done if she has developed a delayed eruption cyst.Please give appropriate details.Normally we take an OPG X-Ray to decide the eruption of the secondary teeth.Another issue is that the child is 9 yrs only.She has time till 14 yrs ( maximum time for eruption of all secondary teeth) and for the third molars aka wisdom tooth ( usually between 18-21 yrs of age).So there is still ample time(5yrs) for you to wait till eruption of permanent dentition.

What if Crown of root canal treatment opened, Can I leave it as opened for 2 months?

MDS Prosthodontics, BDS, Medicine
Dentist, Mohali
Hello lybrate-user, Please don't think of it as the crown given after RCT is meant to support and strengthen the tooth! If you do not get your crown placed within 1 week, then due to physiological movement of teeth and gums the crown won't fit back on your tooth. You will have to pay and get a new crown made and worse your Tooth might fracture due to chewing forces. Regards.

BDS
Dentist, Navi Mumbai
According to your age you must have history of bleeding from gums or bad breath or any history of systemic disease like diabetease b. P. If it is so rule out the proper cause of swelling or any bone loss in jawbone then will discuss about t/t till that you can go for warm salinegargles.
