Hello...
I would recommend that you wait until after pregnancy and breastfeeding to have your teeth bleached... The carbamide peroxide in these products reacts with water to become hydrogen peroxide. This oxidation process can be harmful to tissues and cells, especially during pregnancy when your gums are more sensitive than usual. We don't know whether this is a risk to you or your baby, so it's best to hold off on using these products.. It's fine to use whitening toothpastes during pregnancy. These products contain a much lower level of bleaching agent and are not thought to be any risk during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. You can also avoid staining your teeth by not drinking coffee, tea, and fruit juices such as grape juice etc... once take your doc's opinion too..
