Many people who want to whiten their teeth have questions about tooth whitening safety. Many products are available that are safe and effective for whitening teeth. But to maximize tooth whitening safety, decide what level of whitening you want, and then choose the right product.
Tooth Whitening Safety: More Isn't Better
The Crest 3D White collection includes a variety of Crest 3D White Whitestrips, and you can be assured of tooth whitening safety with any of them if you follow the instructions. How often you should whiten your teeth for tooth whitening safety depends on the product. For example, when used correctly, the whitening effects of Crest 3D White Whitestrips Professional Effects may last up to 12 months after a longer initial application period. By contrast, 3D White Whitestrips Stain Shield are designed to be used for five minutes each day. These 3D White Whitestrips maintain tooth whitening safety and remove stubborn stains from coffee, wine, and other foods and beverages. (1)
Tooth Whitening Safety: Longer Isn't Better
Another point about tooth whitening safety—don't leave 3D Whitestrips in place longer than the period of time that is recommended on the product instructions. You won't gain any additional benefits, and your tooth whitening safety may be at risk from over-exposure to the whitening product.
