Blister after whitening
Sorry to hear about your experience with whitening. It seems some of the whitening gel was in contact with your lip and gums as a result burnt the tissue. It would be a good idea to return to the dentist so that the lips and the tissue can be checked to make sure proper healing is taking place. Normally this process can take 7-10 days. Applying Vitamin E liquid can help speed up the healing process.
