Bleaching of gums, how and why?
Sometimes during client application gel can be painted onto the gums accidentally. If this occurs we recommend to remove the excess gel before continuing the treatment as that area may become irritated and sensitive. The peroxide should only be placed on the tooth not skin, lips, or gums. Vitamin E oil can be used as a gum protectant for consumers prone to sensitivity.
Gums will return to normal within a few hours and the whiteness will disappear. Avoid hot, spicy foods until your gums are fully healed and wait at least one week before whitening again. Treat your teeth for only half the recommended time during your next treatment and slowly increase the whitening time with subsequent treatments.
