The whitening gel is applied only to the outermost layer of the tooth, namely the enamel. The whitening gels approved by the FDI, whose whitening agents do not harm the teeth, do not harm the teeth. You can damage the dental organ when you use whitening powders and gels that are sold without any supervision.
Why is Non-Physician Whitening Dangerous?
It Can Necrosis Your Tooth
The whitening agent, which exceeds the protective layer of the teeth, may progress to the core layer of the tooth and necrosis of the tooth. The tooth with necrosis (losing its vitality) changes color and starts an infection in the mouth.
May Damage Soft Tissues
Physicians protect the soft tissues in the mouth while whitening. Areas such as gums, cheeks and lips are protected while whitening. If not protected, burns occur in these areas.
May Cause Teeth Erosion
Erosion is the irreversible loss of dental tissues. Unknown abrasive substances cause irreversible loss of enamel level of teeth.
May Cause Allergic Reactions
Allergy is not always an innocent picture: In some cases, it can even lead to death. The mouth region is a very rich region in terms of vascularization. An allergen applied inside the mouth can spread throughout the body very quickly.
In some cases, the damage can show itself much later. In this case, it can be concluded that it is harmless. However, bleaching is a procedure that requires a very serious clinical procedure.
If you do not want to cause permanent damage to your teeth, you should not have whitening without the recommendation of a doctor. While you want to have a whiter smile, you can stay without teeth.
