Is tooth whitening safe?
Yes, teeth whitening is safe. Tooth whitening commonly uses two active ingredients: carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide which have been used for years by dentists for whitening teeth. Our dental whitening gels have been thoroughly tested, and have no harmful effects on teeth, and often improve gum health by killing bacteria. Tooth whitening has been approved by stringent dental and statutory bodies, around the world.
Many acidic tooth whitening gels on the market can damage your teeth but Whiter Than White gels are safe and have a neutral pH value of 6.8 - 7.2.
Over the counter products that contain citric or acetic acid as their active ingredients can actually cause structural damage to enamal if used over an extended period. Others have abrasives that remove stains from the surface of the teeth rather than oxidising from within, making the teeth look whiter but in reality they have removed some of the enamel.
Our Carbamide Peroxide Teeth Whitening Gels are imported from the US and our manufacturer is registered with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Our teeth whitening gels are manufactured under the highest standards of quality control, in compliance with current good manufacturing practices.
Our manufacturer is FDA registered and the teeth whitening gel is produced in a ISO9001:2008 & ISO13485:2003 certified facility.
The Scientific Committee on Cosmetic Products do not recommend if you are pregnant or breast feeding to use a tooth whitening system. Please seek the advice of a dentist before going ahead.
Also, teeth whitening products should not be used by habitual tobacco and alcohol users.
