Can teeth whitening damage your teeth?
This begs the question “does teeth whitening damage the enamel?” The answer is no, teeth whitening doesn’t damage your tooth enamel. The main portion of the tooth, the dentin, is the portion of the tooth that’s responsible for your teeth’s color.
Are the effects of whitening strips permanent?
Teeth whitening kits like Crest White Strips are not designed to permanently whiten teeth. In many cases, their effects only last for about 6 months before teeth start to yellow and discolor again. Professional bleaching is not permanent either, but it will last much longer than the strips you use at home.
