Can home kit for teeth whitening cause any allergy?

Hi i have had alllergies in the past to hair dye, i am wanting to get my teeth whitened with a home kit from my dentist (with the chemical hydrogen peroxide) . He wants to me to get written permission from my G.P for the go ahead to say it is ok. Firstly would my G.P want to give me that permission and could i get an allegic reaction?

Hi, in hair dye hydrogen peroxide is used as a oxidizing agents,as u said u had a allergy to hair dye now if u wann your teeth whitened then u first go to your dentist rather than just asking him about home kit,and as far as your GPs permission,
No such permission required even in written,u might ask about your allergic history bcuz it might know better than u.but bettrr u see a dentist only.
