Gum with teeth whitener ok?

This may be a silly question but it has been bothering me all day. I was diagnosed with hyperemisis and the only thing that gives me somewhat releif is chewing gum all day. I chew "trident white" peppermint gum. Im not sure what the ingredient is called that actually whitens the teeth, but could it be harmful to my baby?...(Im 12 weeks). It didnt worry me until my husband brought it up today...he asked do I think it may be adding to my condition. Im switching to regular ol' gum now but I hope there arent any harmful ingredients in it?
