What happens when you over wear your teeth whitener stripes?

They say to wear them 30mins. But sometimes I get so busy I forget I have them on and leave them on for an hour or so with no sensitivity. Thank Goodness!

  • I have done it many times. The processing stops working after 30 minutes or so, you'll be fine. :)

  • Yes, it can damage the enamel. I have a dentist friend who recommend I just brush with Hydrogen Peroxide about once a week. It's the same thing. But you can't do it much more than that, otherwise it does ruin the enamel.
