Is it safe? Yes, absolutely. 10% CP whitening gel (used in our practice) was originally used to promote wound healing and gum health. Our bodies are equipped to handle peroxide and indeed, the human body actually makes peroxide in the liver, brain and eyes.

Is there an advantage to in surgery whitening? Well no, the outcome of in-surgery whitening is not better than home tray whitening regardless of the number of applications.
