Are there side effects of tooth whitening?
It may well be, but most escape without significant side effects. Approximately 20-40% of users are experience easier aching or extra sensitivity in teeth / gums during the treatment, e.g. when drinking hot or cold beverages. However, this is quite normal and transient and disappears within 24 hours after an ended treatment. In rare cases, there are observed side effects like dizziness and headache during the treatment. All the above symptoms are completely transient and are not dangerous.
Is the treatment safe?
Yes, it is! Carbamide peroxide is the only scientifically proven tooth whitener ingredient that can whiten your teeth without simultaneously damaging your enamel. Carbamide Peroxide has been used by German dentists for home bleaching for over 15 years. During the bleaching process, the active ingredient in the gel, Carbamide Peroxide, is broken down and oxygen enters the tooth enamel embedded discolored substances (stains). The active ingredient, “Wasserstoffperoxid”, secreted by Carmamide Peroxide, causes the teeth bleached. “Wasserstoffperoxid” is quite plain water (H2O) with an extra oxygen molecule, H2O2. “Wasserstoffperoxid” is a naturally occurring substance found in the human metabolism. The concentration of “Wasserstoffperoxid” in DentaSmile teeth whitening is so low that it is in no way dangerous. “Wasserstoffperoxid” is for example in mouthwashes and other freely available products. “Wasserstoffperoxid” is also assessed not to be a human carcinogen by The International Research Center for cancer.
