A lot of people are not happy with the color of their teeth. Teeth can become stained and yellow due to a number of reasons, including smoking, drinking coffee and tea, and eating certain foods. While stained teeth are not a health concern, they can be a cosmetic issue for many people.
There are many methods available for teeth whitening, but not all of them are safe or effective. Some methods, such as at-home teeth whitening kits, can be purchased over the counter. However, it is important to note that the American Dental Association (ADA) does not recommend at-home teeth whitening for people with sensitive teeth.
If you are interested in teeth whitening, it is best to consult with a dentist first. Our dentists can help you choose the best teeth whitening method for your needs and make sure that it is done safely and effectively.
The active ingredient in teeth whitening products is typically hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which bleaches the teeth and removes stains. Teeth whitening is generally safe, but there are some potential side effects to be aware of. These can include temporary tooth sensitivity, gum irritation, and skin irritation. It's important to follow the directions on teeth whitening products carefully to avoid these side effects.
