Dentist Greenville SC - Five Star Reviews
Five star review from Google
Palmer distinctive dentistry was the best experience I've ever had at a dentist. They treat you with respect and everyone is very courteous. Pricing is reasonable and the work I had done was quick and painless. Although the time the doctor spent explaining all the options was priceless.

Greenville guests ask, “Is teeth whitening bad for your teeth?”

Is teeth whitening bad for your teeth, Palmer Distinctive Dentistry

Age, eating, drinking, and lifestyle habits can discolor our teeth, making it difficult to keep them pearly white. We all want whiter, more brilliant smiles. At the same time, we want our teeth to be healthy. Guests often wonder if teeth whitening is safe or if it can damage the teeth. The team at Palmer Distinctive Dentistry explains the ins and outs of teeth whitening.

Reasons for teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is a commonly requested cosmetic dental procedure for good reasons. As an effective, efficient way to transform the smile, whitening treatments are readily available. Guests may choose to transform their smile for several reasons. They may desire a brighter smile or want to cover. Often guests want a more uniform smile. Teeth whitening is a cost-effective way to enhance the appearance of the teeth.

Is whitening safe?

Teeth whitening is not dangerous. While treatments can cause increased sensitivity, this is temporary, not a long-term effect. The treatment is limited to the mouth and has no effects on a guest’s health or body.


Whiter teeth are not always healthy teeth. Improving your smile requires help from a dentist. Dentists are experienced at spotting problems that could affect your smile and the whitening process. The American Dental Association recommends consulting with a dentist if you are considering whitening treatments. Dental work or restorations are affected differently by bleaching agents. A dentist can lead you toward the most appropriate procedure to enhance your smile.

Dramatic whitening process

At Palmer Distinctive Dentistry, we utilize the KöR Whitening System for in-office or at-home quality professional whitening. There are numerous benefits with our professional treatments.

  • Guests see significant whitening improvement after a single office treatment.
  • The result is teeth that are up to 16 shades whiter.
  • The KöR Whitening System works on tetracycline stains as well as typical yellowing and discoloration.
  • Lights and lasers are unnecessary for this treatment.
  • This system causes less tooth and gum sensitivity than other whitening treatments.
