Since there isn’t enough data that whitening your teeth during pregnancy poses risks to you or your baby, our dental team and health care providers advise/recommend patients and consumers not to undergo a tooth whitening treatment during pregnancy or as a lactating mother, of which tooth whitening should be deferred during the entire time period. During this period you can limit the consumption of foods and beverages that can stain your teeth, Our golden rule is anything that can stain a white t-shirt can do the same to your teeth.
