Teeth whitening products are everywhere; from supermarkets to online teeth whitening “hacks”, there’s no doubt that teeth whitening has grown in popularity. But, you may be asking, is teeth whitening safe?
There are generally three categories of teeth whitening methods, those that are:
1. Administered by your dentist.
2. Dispensed by your dentist to use at home.
3. Obtained over the counter or made at home without the oversight of your dentist.
Is teeth whitening bad for your teeth?
In general, teeth whitening is a safe, and effective way to make your smile shine. It is important to discuss teeth whitening methods with your dentist in Croydon before trying one. Your dentist will also be able to recommend the best, personalised, treatment for your teeth. At The Fine Tooth Company, we offer both in-chair and take-home whitening to suit all of your teeth whitening needs.
The Philips Zoom Whitening treatment in Croydon provides instant teeth whitening results. The Fine Tooth Company, home to the best dentist in Croydon are experts at providing teeth whitening treatments such as instant zoom whitening.
Our friendly cosmetic dentists in Croydon also offer take home teeth whitening kits, so you can whiten your teeth in the convenience of your own home. One of our dentists will be able to assess your teeth and determine which teeth whitening kit is the most beneficial to you. Your dentist will then formulate a treatment plan along with a customised take home teeth whitening kit to help you achieve the results you want. The benefits of take home teeth whitening include it being more affordable, customised to your needs, and you’re able to whiten your teeth at home, when it suits you.
You can purchase over the counter whitening products to help with stained teeth at home, and while these are generally safe to use, these products often don’t contain carbamide peroxide, or, much less than the products that dentists use. This means that over the counter teeth whiteners may not work as effectively.
It is important to discuss teeth whitening options with your Croydon dentist before trying them at home, as your dentist will be able to give you advice on what would be most effective for your teeth. As long as you stick to dentist-approved methods, whitening your teeth is considered safe. Make sure to use the method that fits your needs and always follow the directions.
Does teeth whitening hurt?
Typically, teeth whitening is safe and painless, but the only way to guarantee safety while whitening teeth is to do so in close consultation with a dental professional.
Many people have started using hydrogen peroxide for teeth whitening , and while it is generally safe to use hydrogen peroxide to whiten teeth, it is important to talk to your dentist first, as they are qualified, and can instruct you on what to use for your own teeth. It is important to remember that hydrogen peroxide is a bleaching agent, often used for disinfecting hospitals and dying hair, so misusing it can have unwanted effects.
