Teeth Whitening Options and Safety

Teeth can be stained or discolored for a variety of reasons. If you want to make them brighter and whiter, you can do it safely. There are a number of options to choose from. You can visit your dentist for whitening treatments or try whitening products at home. While there are some side effects from teeth whitening, most conventional whitening treatments are safe to use as long as you follow the directions of the product.


Whitening toothpaste

Do not use toothpaste that has peroxide carbamide in it. Instead, these toothpaste attack the surface of your teeth with a variety of substances, including abrasives and synthetic blue covariances. It may take time for instant whitening toothpaste to work, but those with blue covering may be effective after just one brush because the chemical makes your teeth whiter.

Whitening strips

You can also buy over-the-counter whitening strips for your teeth. They contain a smaller amount of hydrogen peroxide than professional products. You apply them to your teeth one or two times a day for a specified period of time, as indicated by the manufacturer.


Activated charcoal and other home-based methods

You might be curious to use homemade teeth whitening methods. One such treatment is activated charcoal. Such approaches are not scientifically proven to whiten teeth and should be discussed with a dentist before they are checked. You can damage your teeth if you use these methods without first consulting a dentist. You can contact us prior to booking an appointment to find out if we have any teeth whitening specials available.  Book your 30-minute session.

Irritated gums

You may also have gingival irritation. This is when the gums get irritated. This can happen due to contact with the whitening material on your gums. This side effect should go away after the treatment.
