What Problems Can I Encounter With Home Whitening Kits?

Not having your teeth whitened professionally can be a big mistake, especially when you consider the large amount of complications that can occur with home whitening kits. Even though the home whitening kits from a dental surgery can be trusted, the home whitening kits from supermarkets can give you a considerable amount of problems.

Doing teeth whitening at home can cause your teeth to be more sensitive. It can also cause a change of the enamel surface, which is irreversible. Other common problems with home teeth whitening kits are inflamed gums, chemical burns, uneven coloured teeth, irritation and bleeding. In order to avoid this problem, we recommend getting your teeth whitened at an experienced dental hygienist or dentist.

What Should I Take Into Account Before I Get My Teeth Whitened?

The following things will be determined by your dentist or dental hygienist, however, they can help you determine if you want your teeth whitened or not. First of all, a dentist will need to evaluate if your mouth is healthy. If you have certain problems with your teeth, you cannot get your teeth whitened.

Another thing to take into account is any existing fillings or veneers. When you get your teeth whitened, existing fillings and veneers will not change colour and this may lead you to get fillings and veneers replaced. At the end of the day, this can be quite costly if you have a considerable amount of fillings and veneers. So take into account these extra costs before you decide to move ahead.


Is There A Way To Whiten My Teeth Naturally?

Before you move on to teeth whitening, you can always try to get your teeth whiter by good dental hygiene. Brush your teeth at least two times a day using a good toothpaste containing fluoride. It is also essential to floss, given the fact that plaque can settle between your teeth as well.

Your lifestyle can also affect the whiteness of your teeth, this also includes what you eat and drink. Having a large amount of sugar will affect the health of your teeth and may cause stains and tooth decay. Revising your current diet can therefore have a considerable impact on your dental health. Additional things to avoid are smoking, black tea and coffee, red wine and spicy foods.
