Does Teeth Whitening Damage Your Teeth? We Set the Record Straight
Today’s in-office whitening treatments and at-home teeth whitening kits are made with powerful bleaching ingredients. While they are relatively safe, it is still important to know which products are best for your beauty and oral wellness. So, does teeth whitening damage your teeth and what should you know about popular whitening products? This guide explains everything you need to know about the risks and rewards of teeth whitening so you can get a smile you love.
Possible Risks of Teeth Whitening
According to the American Dental Association (ADA), the most common adverse effects when whitening teeth are temporary gum inflammation and tooth sensitivity. Not all people will experience these symptoms, but it is still a good idea to take steps to protect your oral health.
Higher concentrations of peroxide bleach are more likely to lead to symptoms of discomfort or irritation. A recent study on in-office bleaching agents shows that bleach can impact the quality of the surface of tooth enamel, including a decrease in its hardness and an increase in its roughness. Highly acidic professional whitening gels can also contribute to the demineralization of tooth enamel.Shop for a Gentle Teeth Whitening Kit
How to Prevent Damage from Teeth Whitening
To avoid sensitive teeth, gum irritation or enamel damage, use products that are gentle on teeth and gums. Choose a diluted hydrogen peroxide toothpaste or whitening gel to help prevent demineralization. While the formula will not erode your enamel, it is still highly effective at lifting tooth stains and brightening the surface of each tooth.
While you enhance your smile in comfort, you will see results even faster with patented blue lightwave technology. Blue light technology rapidly kills unwanted mouth bacteria, helping to avoid oral health problems that could lead to discomfort and sensitivity. The blue light also maximizes the power of your whitening gel even further.
Once you discover the right combination of whitening products for your needs, be sure to follow its instruction manual. You should also follow any aftercare instructions if you receive treatments from a dental professional. Avoid whitening dental veneers or crowns since they do not have the tubular surface that natural enamel has to absorb the whitening gel. Instead, consult with your dentist to match your natural teeth to the same color as your dental fixtures. They can help you to create a plan that is not too strong for your teeth or gums while still achieving the results you desire.
