Is Home Teeth Whitening Risky?


If you’ve never whitened your teeth at home, you might be wondering: is home teeth whitening risky? Are harmful chemicals used in the process?

These are both good questions. We should always look into any product we’re planning to use on our bodies and especially those we plan to put into our mouths. Just because the FDA approves something doesn’t mean it meets our own personal standards.


There are two answers to the question of whether home teeth whitening can be risky. Yes and No. Here’s why…

Using products containing carbamide peroxide is not in your best interest. Carbamide is a poison found in some teeth whitening products. It can cause side-effects such as teeth sensitivity and gum irritation. Some people complain of a sore throat and uneven whitening.

Whitening Lightning products DO NOT contain carbamide.


Home teeth whitening with products that contain carbomide can be risky on two ends: first, this doesn’t effectively whiten your teeth. Hydrogen peroxide does; so you’ll compromise effectiveness.

Second, and more importantly, you’ll expose your delicate mouth tissue to a potentially harmful poison that can also be painful. This is not necessary. You can and should whiten your teeth without carbamide-containing products.

The NO part of the question about whether home teeth whitening is risky is answered by using Whitening Lightning products. Here’s why: Whitening Lightning products are formulated using hydrogen peroxide. Zero White home teeth whitening system was developed using baking soda and other botanicals, especially for those who suffer from sensitive teeth and gums.

If you suffer from sensitivity to cold and hot foods and beverages, you might also experience sensitivity to teeth whitening products. In that case, Zero White teeth home whitening system is the one to try. You can even use while pregnant or nursing.

Note: Please discuss the use of any product with your doctor while pregnant or nursing.
