The carbamide conundrum
You can also brighten your smile without bleaching. The abrasive action of brushing and professional cleaning can help remove surface stains. Whitening toothpaste with chemical or polishing agents can also help with discoloration. If you already have sensitive teeth, which means you have exposed dentin, then the thought of using high-concentration peroxide gels or brushing with abrasive chemical agents probably sounds unpleasant. The American Dental Association lists tooth sensitivity and gum irritation as possible side effects of peroxide-containing bleaching products. Shop our whitening kit here
Buffering the bleach
But like your smartphone, teeth technology is getting smarter by the day. The bleaching gels used nowadays are well buffered, so sensitivity is not a major problem. Just make sure you use dentist-recommended products. Simply keeping up your oral hygiene habits with daily brushing and flossing and regular dental visits can also promote a whiter smile.
