Tooth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental procedure that can improve the appearance of your smile by removing stains and discoloration from your teeth. At DrRez Dental, we offer professional tooth whitening services to help our patients achieve a brighter, more confident smile. However, some patients may be concerned about the safety of tooth whitening. In this blog, we will discuss the safety of tooth whitening at DrRez Dental.
The Safety of Tooth Whitening
Tooth whitening is generally considered safe when performed by a qualified dental professional. At DrRez Dental, our dental team is trained and experienced in providing safe and effective tooth whitening treatments.
However, it is important to note that tooth whitening may cause some side effects, including tooth sensitivity and gum irritation. These side effects are typically mild and temporary and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers and desensitizing toothpaste.
In some cases, tooth whitening may not be recommended for patients with certain dental conditions, such as gum disease, cavities, or exposed tooth roots. Our dental team will evaluate your dental health and discuss your options for tooth whitening during your consultation.
Professional Tooth Whitening vs. Over-the-Counter Products
While over-the-counter tooth whitening products, such as whitening toothpaste, strips, and gels, are widely available, they may not be as effective or as safe as professional tooth whitening performed by a qualified dental professional.
Over-the-counter tooth whitening products can cause tooth sensitivity and gum irritation if used improperly or too frequently. They may also be less effective than professional tooth whitening in removing deep stains and discoloration.
Professional tooth whitening at DrRez Dental uses a higher concentration of whitening agents that are carefully applied to the teeth by a dental professional. This allows for more effective and efficient removal of stains and discoloration while minimizing the risk of side effects.
Additionally, professional tooth whitening is customized to each patient's unique dental needs and goals, ensuring the safest and most effective results.

Been a Dr. Rez patient for around 4 years now. From initially needing a lot of work done to now just regular check ups and cleaning. I can confidently say it's been one of my best decisions. From being a very nervous patient to now quite enjoying my appointment (relatively anyway ha). Currently my therapist is Lilly, very ably assisted by Mel and they couldn't be more encouraging, thoughtful and nice. I get great advice and couldn't feel better looked after. Couldn't recommend more.
