Is tooth whitening safe?

Whitening teeth with carbamide peroxide has been proven to be safe for teeth and gums. Though some patients have experienced increased tooth sensitivity, these symptoms tend to disappear within 1-3 days. In any case, any reaction should be reported immediately to your dentist. Over-the-counter bleaching kits may cause problems that you may be unaware of, such as irritation of the gums and the surrounding soft tissue. We cannot over emphasis that these types of procedures are best controlled at your dentist's office

Studies also show that diabetics with periodontal disease were three times more likely to have heart attacks than those without periodontal disease.
