teeth whitening risk to gums

does opalescence gel bleach gums if over applied?

  • Any recommendations for a whitener that works with sensitive teeth?

  • I've used Crest whitening strips and the generic Target and CVS brands of teeth whitening strips. If I wore them LESS than the allotted time (10-15 min), used them only 1- 2X a week for a couple of weeks and then took a couple of weeks break before using them again, my teeth wouldn't get sensitive to hot/cold or acidic drinks.

  • Did you find a teeth whitener that worked for your sensitive teeth?

  • Yeah teeth whitening should be done carefully. I am quite concerned about my dental health so will never try the home whitening kits because they can cause issues. That’s why I am going to consult the expert dentist Torrance for the whitening treatment. Hoping to have good experience with his service.
