    Default Tooth whitening??

    I was wondering if it is safe to use a tooth whitening system that I got from the dentist while bf'ing? I have heard that it is safe and that it isn't safe but want to make sure before I use it. I didn't use it all through my pregnancy because I knew it was bad then, but not sure now. Thanks.

    I'm assuming you got syringes of gel that you load into custom trays? My caution would be to not overload your trays to the point that your soft tissue is exposed to the gel, running the risk of absorbtion. Even so, it wouldn't be the end of the world, as the components in the gel used are safe enough to go in your mouth and be worn as prescribed. Enjoy your sparkling teeth!

    I was told by a dentist friend that teeth whitening systems are safe.
