Tooth Whitening

Teeth whitening is not a new trend; products to whiten your teeth have been on the market for a long time. Recently though it has regained popularity and there is a lot of advertising for teeth whitening products. You are seeing more and more people with blindingly bright smiles. Most of teeth whitening products you can find over the counter are toothpaste, gels and strips. It is ideal to use whitening products if you have yellow tones to your teeth and you have no restorations or fillings and very healthy gums.

It is not recommend for people under the age of 16 because it could cause tooth sensitivity and it is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women. If you have sensitive teeth and gums you should talk to your dentist before using any product, also if you have an allergy to peroxide then you shouldn’t use any bleaching agent. You should not attempt to whiten your teeth if you have gum disease, worn enamel, cavities and exposed roots. This can increase tooth sensitivity and even cause some pain.

People who have tooth colored fillings should know that they do not whiten. If you use a bleaching agent on these it may result in uneven color. If you really want to lighten your teeth then you need to talk to your dentist and see what their recommendations are.
