Can teeth whitening cause gum recession?

For the most part, teeth whitening does not cause gums to recede. There can be some exceptions to this rule that you need to know. If you already have thin tissue or sensitive gums, this will put you at more of a risk of gum recession. This is because the harsh chemicals that are used to clean the enamel can burn the tissue. Gum recession can also be caused if you push the tray down too hard when setting the chemicals in the mouth. If these do not apply to you then this is an unlikely cause of your gums starting to recede.
