Dental bonding is a versatile restoration that can address a variety of functional and aesthetic problems with your teeth. If you’re looking to maintain a bright smile, it’s important to understand that the resin material used with dental bonding will stain over time, but it doesn’t respond to whitening treatments. Therefore, whitening your teeth will create a situation where your natural teeth become a different shade than the bonding material.

Earlier this month, Amazon removed its best-selling teeth whitening kit, Harvey and Coco’s Smile Rehab® Teeth Whitening Kit, after it was revealed that the kit contained a chemical harmful to pregnant woman and unborn babies. With more than 800 Amazon reviews averaging 4.5 stars, the kit’s removal has left many people wondering if teeth whitening is safe.

While teeth whitening is very safe and effective, it is common to experience sensitivity after your treatment. The good news is that this sensitivity is only temporary; however, it can still cause some discomfort for the first few days after your procedure. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to minimize this sensitivity after teeth whitening.
