A bright, white smile is a sign of health and confidence. It’s no wonder that in Phillips, teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments. With so many options available, from professional treatments to at-home kits, it’s easier than ever to achieve a brighter, whiter smile.
The amount of teeth whitening solution that’s safe for your teeth depends on several factors, including:
While there is no definitive answer on how much is too much, dentists typically recommend that patients whiten their teeth no more than once every six months to a year.
If you experience tooth sensitivity, it may be a sign that you’re overusing whitening products. Tooth sensitivity can be painful and uncomfortable, and it can also indicate underlying dental issues.
The enamel is the protective layer of the tooth. Overusing whitening products can strip away this protective layer, making the teeth weaker and more susceptible to decay and other dental problems.
Whitening products can also cause gum irritation and inflammation. This can lead to gum recession and other serious dental problems.
Over-whitening can also cause uneven whitening, where some teeth become whiter than others. This can make your smile look unnatural and uneven.
