Does Whitening Break Down My Teeth?

There are some fears that a professional whitening treatment, like the kind you might get at our Federal Way dentistry clinic, might be doing more harm than good. After all, since these are harsh bleaching chemicals, couldn’t they break down the delicate gum tissues and tooth enamel in your mouth? If you share these trepidations, a recent study has some good news for you.

This study is coming to us from the São Leopoldo Mandic Institute and Research Center in Brazil. Researchers observed a set of participants who each underwent different levels of in-office-style bleaching gels. After examining the tooth enamel of participants, it was determined that there was no discernable difference between those who had gotten a full whitening and those who had received no whitening.

It should be noted that this only applies to professional, in-office treatments. Certain home whitening products have been found to be more harsh on your mouth. So, when you lose the lustre in your pearly-whites, count on Bella Dental to give you the whitening you need.
