What happens if I get whitening serum on my gums or lips?

Updated 2 years ago by Atul Shastry

The whitening gel is for the teeth only. Try to avoid getting gel on your gums or in your mouth/lips. It is not dangerous in any way, but it could cause irritation if applied to the lips or gums. If you accidentally apply the gel on your gums or lips and notice irritation or swelling, make sure to rinse your mouth and lips thoroughly with water.

If you do happen to get any of our whitening gel on your lips or gums, we recommend washing it off using water to remove any excess gel from your lips or gums. The whitening gel is water soluble.
Why does my skin turn white after using the Whitening Pens and accidentally getting some on my lips/gums? Hydrogen peroxide turns skin white because of a process called capillary embolism. This is a process in which blood does not flow to the capillaries temporarily causing the color of the skin area whiter than the rest. So, the skin area that comes in contact with hydrogen peroxide becomes whiter; albeit, temporarily, and it isn't dangerous at all. The skin color should return back to normal within a few minutes
