Side effects of teeth bleaching

The side effects of teeth bleaching are one of the questions that many clients ask. Many people use the bleaching method to have a beautiful smile and white teeth. Teeth bleaching is a good way to whiten teeth. But does teeth bleaching have complications? Before answering this question, let us know more about the mechanism of tooth bleaching.

What is the mechanism of action of teeth bleaching?

Bleaching works on the teeth in such a way that the bleaching material contains baby oxygen, and when the baby oxygen bleaching material is activated, it separates the colored material that penetrates into the tooth tissue. In fact, bleaching removes colored pigments (which have been transferred from food to the surface of the tooth) from the surface of the tooth and whitens the color of the tooth without harming the tooth itself.

What is the difference between home and office teeth bleaching methods?

The difference between these two methods is the type of bleaching agent and its concentration. Due to the stronger agent in the office method, the agent works faster and brightens the teeth within an hour. While in the home method, it is necessary to use bleach at night for each jaw for at least one week. Endo tooth bleach (denervation teeth) or nonvital bleach, where the bleach material is placed inside the tooth and at the entrance of the endo site, can in some cases cause tooth root decay from the inside. More than once per gray tooth discolored by root canal treatment is not recommended.

What are the side effects of teeth bleaching?

Office and home bleaching, where the bleaching material is placed on the surface of the teeth, has no harm. In fact, although the bleach material is placed on the tooth, it does not remove any tissue from the tooth, and as a result, it does not harm the tooth. The only reversible complication is tooth sensitivity in some people.

Bleach may increase tooth sensitivity

One of the side effects of teeth bleaching is the increase in tooth sensitivity. In this method, the teeth may become sensitive due to the penetration of the substance and the creation of prostheses to remove pigments. Of course, this method has different effects on different teeth. But this problem also has a solution. The solution to increasing the sensitivity of the teeth is to use anti-allergic substances that the dentist prescribes for you in case of problems. In the home bleaching method, these materials are placed by the patient in a special tray for bleaching, and it is rubbed inside the mouth for one hour before bleaching and for half an hour after bleaching. In the office bleaching method, an anti-allergic agent is placed on the teeth by the dentist for ten minutes. Therefore, it can be said that in 90% of the cases, there are no side effects of bleaching for the teeth!
