Does Teeth Whitening Damage Enamel?

A healthy and confident smile is essential to present an attractive image, so many people look for ways to enhance their smiles. If you’ve been searching for the best teeth-whitening product, you may be wondering, “Does teeth whitening damage enamel?”

Enamel is the thin outer covering of your teeth. Although enamel is thin, this shell is the hardest tissue in the human body. Enamel covers the crowns of your teeth — the visible part outside the gums.

Luckily, teeth whitening does not damage the enamel! Some people may experience side effects from whitening products from our competitors, usually due to improper methods. Our products have been tested and proven to maximize your results without any sensitivity. 

About Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening and stain erasers are effective ways to lighten the natural color of your teeth without harming their surface. With the right whitening treatment from GO SMILE, you can successfully lighten your teeth by a few shades.

When undergoing a whitening treatment, your teeth will essentially be dried out. The active ingredient in the whitening product will begin working by going through the enamel and into the second layer of the teeth, known as dentin. The product begins to reverse the discoloration and lighten the surface. Once the treatment is finished, the teeth rehydrate again naturally with the help of saliva.

Safety Tips for Whitening Teeth

Whitening your teeth is safe and effective with the procedure. Here are a few tips to consider before beginning the use of whitening products:

Talk to Your Dentist

Before starting your teeth-whitening treatment, talk to your dentist to ensure this treatment is the right fit. Teeth whitening is unsuitable for those with active tooth decay or dental diseases. Additionally, not all whitening products will respond to all types of discoloration.

For instance, whitening products are a great option for yellow or brown staining from drinking coffee or tea. However, gray staining from medication and developmental defects doesn’t respond well to most whitening products.

Talking with your dentist will enable you to set your expectations and understand whether you are a good candidate for teeth-whitening products.

Use ADA-Approved Products

You should always seek whitening products with the American Dental Association (ADA) seal of approval. This seal means that the dental product is of high quality, reliable and safe to use.

Follow the Instructions Provided With the Product

Whether it’s the Glow on the Go Blue Light Device or any other whitening product, it’s important to follow the instructions thoroughly. Depending on the product, you may need to use it more frequently and for an extended period. Following the instructions will help you receive the best results.
