Please read before using tooth whitening bleaching gel.
Tooth Whitening (bleaching) gel will only whiten natural teeth.
It will NOT bleach (whiten), nor harm bonding, caps, crowns, bridges,
fillings or any other artificial dental work. You may have to have
the dentistry redone in order to match your new white teeth. Tetracycline
(an antibiotic) stained teeth or grayish teeth are more difficult
to bleach and have a varied prognosis. Exposed root portion of teeth
which occurs with gum recession will also not bleach. If you have
amalgam (silver) fillings in, near or behind the front teeth, long
term bleaching can cause the surrounding tooth to have a greenish
tinge. Bleaching teeth which have a lot of translucency (see thru)
can cause the teeth to become even more translucent and may give
the tooth a darker appearance. It is important to consult a dentist
if you have any of the above concerns.

while using all products containing peroxide based gels and it is
