Will teeth whitening hurt cavities?

Teeth whitening can aggravate an untreated cavity, causing pain and further damage to your tooth. However, restored areas of decay (provided the restorations are in shape) protect the inner workings of your teeth during the whitening process.

Cavities can be small and unnoticeable, so you must visit your dentist for a checkup before whitening your teeth. Your dentist can treat small cavities before you whiten them to ensure safety and comfort.

Additionally, it’s best to use professional teeth whitening in Seymour, TN, over kits and gels you’ve purchased on your own.

With your dentist, you can count on a safe and comfortable whitening experience. But, unfortunately, the same cannot be said when you proceed independently.
