Does teeth whitening damage your teeth?

The answer is no. Bleaching your teeth does not damage your enamel.

Today's bleaching products are safe for tooth enamel, and most patients don't typically experience side effects except occasional tooth sensitivity.

Professional Teeth Whitening vs. Over-the-Counter (OTC) Products

What's the difference between professionally whitening your teeth with your dentist versus choosing a product from your local grocery store? 

  • Effectiveness: Professional products your dentist uses are more potent and effective than what is sold at the store.
  • Efficiency: When bleaching gel is more effective, you can achieve your desired results faster.
  • Safety: Your dentist creates bleaching trays that are customized for your teeth. This is safer for your soft tissues because customized trays prevent the whitening gel from escaping onto your soft tissues.

We Offer Two Options to Whiten Your Teeth

We offer two options for bleaching your teeth at our Moline dental office. In-office treatment for quick and immediate results and custom take-home bleaching trays you can use at home based on your own schedule.
