Will using dental whitening strips harm my teeth?

I have noticed that all my friends are starting to use whitening strips, and I'm wondering if it is ok to do so?

The use of whitening strips is okay but keep in mind that you could have sensitivity issues while using them. Follow the package directions and you should be okay and if you do get sensitivity pick up some sensodyne or some MI Paste from your dentist.

Hello Robryan,

They won't harm your teeth as long as you use them as directed. When I see my teeth getting stained from coffee or tea, I use the whitening strips. I love them!
