Are you interested in whitening your smile but you’re nervous about the whitening side effects? If so, our dentist, Dr. Donald Roman, is happy to help you. You deserve a white and bright smile, but he understands your concerns. Some treatments can turn out useless and even harmful. So, he would like to give you the list of side effects you might encounter when using a whitening treatment in Hackensack, New Jersey.

When it comes to oral hygiene tools that whiten the teeth, like whitening mouthwash and toothpaste, you might experience little to no side effects. This is because the whitening solution is oftentimes not strong enough to severely affect the smile. However, this usually results in a slightly whiter smile.

When it comes to whitening strips, you might experience irritated gums and tooth sensitivity. The chances of experiencing these side effects increase if you wear the strips for a longer time than recommended or if you misuse the treatment.

When it comes to whitening trays, whether they are professional or over the counter, you might experience tooth sensitivity (if the trays are left on your smile for too long) or gum irritation (if the whitening solution leaks out of the trays and onto the gums, which usually happens if you have ill-fitting trays).
