Will tooth whitening damage my teeth?
We frequently get this question and the answer is no, tooth whitening will not damage your teeth. As with many of the treatments we offer, we work hard to stay up to date with the most relevant research to guide our recommendations.
A 2008 study from the Journal of Dental Materials looked at the effect of strips, trays, and in-office bleaching products on the enamel surface of teeth. The product tested was Opalaescence by Ultradent, which is the same product we offer to our patients. The results found that all versions tested improved the whiteness of the teeth without impacting the hardness of the enamel, nor did they impact the surface roughness.
