What are the safest whitening strips?

20 December 22.

Teeth whitening strips are thin sheets of plastic that are coated in teeth whitening agents like hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, as well as an adhesive to make them stick to your teeth. Usually, they come in kits with enough strips to use on both the top and bottom teeth for two weeks.
