How to REALLY Whiten Your Teeth!
Frustrated with sub-par results of do-it-yourself teeth whitening products? There’s a reason they don’t work as well as a professional whitening treatment...
Almost everyone is looking for a brighter, whiter smile - but off-the-shelf solutions rarely give you the results you were hoping for.
Your teeth yellow or darken due to food particles being attracted to the your enamel on your teeth. Coffee, tea, berries, tobacco, and even soy sauce are all known to stain your teeth - and over time your teeth actually become more vulnerable to staining from food and beverages.
Delicious - but also can cause staining!
The difference in whitening results lie is in the type of whitening you get from do-it-yourself products versus a professional whitening treatment from your dentist.
Whitening strips don’t get into the nooks and crannies of your teeth, which can cause discolouration and the stains in the nooks and crannies to become more visible.
Whitening toothpaste can be somewhat effective - these work by abrasion, using tiny particles that can actually wear away your tooth’s enamel. But both of these solutions can only remove surface stains - stains that go deeper than the tooth’s surface can only be whitened by professional bleaching products.
Before you commit to a whitening session in the dental chair, ensure your dental office offers an additional tray and touch-up whitening kit for use at home should you ever need a booster treatment.
