In the last years, teeth’s whitening has become more than a popular cosmetic dentistry trend; it somehow turned into a DIY obsession. Doctors everywhere have to face waves of internet-based information regarding the best home remedies used to whiten a person’s teeth. From baking soda to lemon juice and from hydrogen peroxide to teeth bleaching chewing gum people would try just about anything.
The problem is not that these products don’t work at all (although some actually don’t); the problem is your teeth are totally different from another person’s teeth and yours need a tailored approach and a personalized teeth whitening treatment to get the results you want without any side-effects. Today our teeth whitening Plantation FL experts will tackle a few teeth whitening myths and truths.
1. Teeth Whitening Should Come after Teeth Cleaning
TRUE. In order to achieve the best results (white smile, strong dental health) you need to have your tartar, plaque, toxins and bacteria removed from your teeth and gums.
2. There Is no Difference between Whitening Toothpaste and Professional Whitening Gel
FALSE. Whitening toothpaste, chewing gum, or at-home whitening gels do contain a certain concentration of carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide, but in fact, these substances have to remain in contact with your teeth for about 20 minutes before you see some significant result. Our teeth whitening Plantation, FL specialists, just like all our professional colleagues also use a Chairside lamp to accelerate the bleaching process.
3. Using a Stronger At-Home Whitening Gel Gets You the Same Results as Professional Gel
FALSE. Or at least it’s a half-truth. Indeed, logically, if a gel is stronger it will also have more powerful effects. However, before submitting your teeth to an unnecessary stress, remember that your teeth whitening Plantation FL specialist will first conduct a diagnosis and an oral health history analysis. He will learn if you have teeth sensitivity, gum problems, previous gum diseases, actual teeth issues (cavities, present inflammations etc) or teeth restorations (fillings) – depending on all these factors your doctor will bleach your teeth to achieve perfect results with no side-effects or collateral damages.
