I am a 13-year-old male. I tried this relatively cheap BleachBright StarBright Dual-Action whitening pen. After using it, I noticed white spots forming all over my teeth. It was the weirdest thing. I have always had white spots on and off throughout my life, but after using this, I had a bunch of them appearing within five minutes. Is this an allergic reaction? How do you recommend I get rid of them? Should I consult my dentist? Should I continue using my whitening pen? Of note, I am currently on Guanfacine.
As per your symptoms, the white spots on the teeth are due to hypocalcified areas of poor mineralization. Bleaching makes them more pronounced, and they can further stand out on the teeth. It is not an allergic reaction, but this has happened due to a more clear appearance of hypocalcified areas. The spots will become less pronounced as the days pass, and teeth will continue to hydrate. I suggest not to use your whitening pen further, and for any cosmetic dental treatment, it will be better to consult a cosmetic dentist.

Same symptoms doesn’t mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
And if it does not go, well, then I would suggest you visit your dentist once again because the treatment you had is bleaching in which chemicals are used and then the dentist will help you to correct . Read full
