Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure, especially as people want to look their best for special events such as weddings or reunions. If your smile is looking stained or yellowed, you might have considered teeth whitening to help improve the way your tooth look.
One of the most common questions we hear at our LN Dental Chester Hill, is ‘how well do DIY whitening methods really work?’
DIY Teeth Whitening: Do They Really Work?
If you check the oral health care aisles at shops or the chemist, you will quickly see that there is no shortage of whitening products you can purchase. There are strips, gels, toothpaste and rinses all of which claim to make your teeth whiter.
There are also a number of other DIY tooth whitening methods that have been discussed online recently, including oil pulling, charcoal, and turmeric. How effective are these teeth whitening methods? And how safe are they?
The truth is that most of these methods might remove surface stains from teeth at best; at worst, they can cause sensitivity and other oral issues. They may also empty your pocketbook with little if any results. When it comes to your teeth and oral health, it’s usually best to leave things up to a professional.
Professional Teeth Whitening Might Provide the Most Dramatic Results
Professional teeth whitening includes a whitening gel that is stronger than what you can purchase over-the-counter; it is designed to penetrate the teeth to remove even some of your most stubborn stains. In addition, your dentist will take precautions to protect the soft tissues of the mouth before applying the whitening gel. Most of our teeth whitening patients report feeling very little sensitivity after treatment.
