Breastfeeding and teeth whitening
Is it safe to use teeth whitening products (Crest White Strips) while breastfeeding or while pregnant. I called P&G but they couldn`t tell me for sure.
I have seen nothing in the literature regarding the use of whitening products during pregnancy or lactation. I would suggest that you discuss this with your health care provider and your dentist.
