How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Is Tooth Whitening Safe?
A tooth whitening that is performed by your Manhattan Beach Cosmetic Dentist is very safe. Prior to in-office whitening, your dentist will place a protective gel on your gums and lips. This gel protects sensitive tissues from direct contact with the whitener. In the unlikely event that the whitening product does make some contact with your lips or gums, you may experience some irritation, but it is not severe and will wear off quickly.
