Health Tip: Tooth Whitening Safety

(HealthDay News) -- Tooth whitening is a cosmetic treatment that can remove unsightly stains. From dental office procedures to at-home whiteners, there are many safe and effective whitening options, says the American Dental Association.

Before whitening, the ADA encourages people to:

  • Check with your dentist. Whitening is not recommended for everyone.
  • For over-the-counter options, only use products that bear the ADA seal of acceptance.
  • Do not use household items to whiten teeth.
  • Be aware of the possible inflammation and tooth sensitivity that may follow whitening.
