Nothing can boost your confidence quite like whiter teeth. It’s now easier than ever to find over-the-counter products that offer a fast path to whitened teeth. While many people find success with these products, there are numerous risks that can come from DIY teeth whitening.
Cyprus Family Dental is proud to offer a professional teeth whitening service for patients around Magna, Utah. With Dr. Cantwell and our experienced team, we provide an in-office bleaching service as well as a take-home kit, both of which are personalized professionally to give you a bright white smile superior to over-the counter products. Before calling us to schedule a free consultation, learn more about why you should have your teeth professionally whitened.
The Dangers of DIY Teeth Whitening
There’s an appeal to DIY teeth whitening kits. Stores have entire aisles dedicated to these over-the-counter teeth whitening products that promise a quick path to bright, white teeth. While these products aren’t necessarily falsely advertising, there are undoubtedly risks associated with whitening your teeth outside of the guidance and expertise of your dentist.
With DIY whitening products, it can be difficult to whiten your teeth evenly. Oftentimes these kits will yield uneven results. You might find yellow or white splotches on your teeth or uneven lines where the whitening trays might not have fully covered your teeth. These cosmetic risks can appear obvious to the outside eye and can be difficult to resolve.
Another risk associated with DIY teeth whitening comes with the chemicals used in these products. Bleach is the most common whitening agent and can damage your enamel, leading to weaker teeth and a greater susceptibility to discoloration down the road. The bleach in over-the-counter whitening kits can also cause stomach problems, nerve damage to teeth, and mouth infections.
