This is the most common side effect of teeth whitening. It occurs when the bleaching agent penetrates the enamel and reaches the dentin (the inner layer of your teeth) where the nerves are located. It can cause temporary discomfort or pain when you eat or drink something hot, cold, sweet, or sour. This usually goes away within a few days after the treatment.
This can happen if the bleaching agent comes in contact with your gums or soft tissues in your mouth. It can cause redness, swelling, or burning sensations. This usually goes away within a few hours after the treatment.
This is a rare but serious side effect of teeth whitening. It occurs when the bleaching agent is too strong or used too frequently or for too long. It can weaken or erode the enamel and expose the dentin or pulp (the core of your tooth) where the blood vessels and nerves are located. This can cause permanent sensitivity, pain, infection, or tooth loss.
