Are they safe?

Most people will be able to use teeth whitening strips, which are subjected to extensive clinical trials before being made widely available, without any issues.

It is important you check with your dentist before using the strips to ensure you do not have a medical condition, such as gum disease, that could make them harmful.

Some strips use hydrogen peroxide, which can cause sensitivity in some people but should not cause long term problems. Specialised strips for people with sensitive teeth are available.

To avoid gum irritation, it may be recommended that you avoid applying strips immediately after brushing your teeth, although you do need to ensure they are clean and dry. Legally, there are limitations on the use of teeth whitening strips for under-18s. Always follow the instructions on the packet.

Clinical trials do not just prove that teeth whitening strips are safe to be used but that they work.

Stains that have built up over the years thanks to tea and coffee drinking or smoking can start to fade within two or three days. Over the two or more weeks, when you continue to apply the strips, you should be able to see the whiteness and brightness of your teeth continuing to intensify until the process is complete.
