If you are going to use a whitening kit at home all by yourself, you should be extra careful to use the product the way it was intended. 

A Few Teeth Whitening Safety Tips

Before you go ahead and get the procedure done, consult with your dentist first. Whether you are going to have it done by a professional dentist or you are planning on doing it at home with a whitening kit.

It is important to check your product for the right certification. You don't want to use some brandless teeth whitening kit whose origins are unfamiliar. 

Read the instructions that come with your at-home teeth whitening kit. This is for your own safety. 

Teeth Whitening Side Effects

1. Tooth Sensitivity

When hydrogen peroxide damages your enamel too much, your teeth will become sensitive to either hot temperatures, cold temperatures or air. Use an anti sensitizing toothpaste. If the pain is unbearable, use a painkiller such as Ibuprofen.

2. Gum Irritation

The bleaching gel used in the teeth whitening process is of course going to spill over onto the gums. 

If some gel spills over on the gums, wipe it away with your finger or a toothbrush before the peroxide has a chance to significantly irritate your gums.
