i had my teeth whitened today and got some plaque removed which were giving me some little bleeding and some other problems like drawing back of the gum, but after the procedure, when i looked at some of my teeth in the mirror with light, i have found out that there are some new surfaces, which means the dentist may have removed/eroded/worn the tooth itself too. I want to ask does it happen a lot and does it regenerate itself in time?

  • In teeth whitening only chemical are used which do not erode or remove the tooth enamel. The new surfaces that you are seeing may be because of the removal of plaque. If the thick deposits are there and when they are removed the teeth surfaces covered by the plaque become visible. The only side effect of teeth whitening is the senstivity of the teeth and that can be taken care by using the desensitizing tooth paste.
