Products like toothpaste with whitening agents can be used on a daily basis however it is strongly recommended that you see a dentist prior to using any type of concentrated whitening product. Like most other treatments, everyone's teeth differ and some products might be suitable to some but not others. Your dentist will be able to advise you on the best possible option for your situation.
In most cases you are better off letting your dentist work on your teeth rather than trying to do it yourself. Some common issues when using whitening kits include uneven whitening, damage to the surface of your teeth and sometimes no evident results.
