The gel used in teeth whitening procedure can irritate your gums. It is important that the trays you wear for the procedure are well made and checked for accurate fitting. Any excess gel after setting the trays should be wiped away carefully. Minor irritations of the gums will resolve soon after completing whitening.
It is also important to ensure that your gums are healthy before teeth whitening and at Carfax Dental, we perform a full examination of teeth and gums before recommending teeth whitening.
So, always remember teeth whitening will not damage a healthy gum when the process is carried out by a professional.
