Whitestrips

02/04/2010

Question:

Hi, I did use Whitestrips (pro-effect) and the result was satisfactory. My question is, if I need them again, will they damage enamel or have any other negative effect on my teeth?

Answer:

White-strips are safe and effective if used per manufacturer's directions. They do not damage enamel as long as directions are followed. Wearing them every day for months would not be ideal.
