Does Zoom whitening weaken teeth?

The concentrations used in tooth whitening is proven to be safe and have been shown no evidence of softening or stripping of the enamel. However, it is common to some patients to experience some sensitivity of their teeth in the days and weeks after their procedure.

If you experience tooth sensitivity, you can use toothpaste for sensitivity or tooth mousse to relieve the sensitivity.

 

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
