Coffee, cigarettes, soda, and wine tend to stain teeth rather easily. Over time, the constant exposure to the chemicals and colorings cause teeth to be extremely discolored. As the materials begin to soak or work their way into the enamel and eventually, the dentin of the tooth, its surface becomes darker and darker. Teeth whitening systems work by drawing out the stains and leaving behind the clear, white enamel. The problem is that some of the bleaching or whitening agents can be extremely harsh and abrasive, wearing away the delicate enamel. Most dentists agree that with careful monitoring, most teeth whitening systems are safe to use and won't harm your teeth if they are used correctly.
Many teeth whitening toothpaste contain abrasives that can eventually wear away the sensitive enamel of the teeth. While they are effective at whitening the teeth to a degree, most dentists recommend using them only once or twice a week to prevent damaging the enamel. If a person prefers to use a whitening toothpaste, talk to a dentist or other oral healthcare specialist to determine which ones are safe for daily use. Brushing a person's teeth should be a daily habit. Using the right toothpaste will help to prevent excessive staining, even if it does not contain whitening agents. Knowing which toothpaste are safe for daily use will help to keep a person's smile bright, beautiful and intact.
If a person wants their teeth whitened professionally, they can always have their dentist perform the procedure. Most teeth whitening procedures that are used in dental offices will produce much faster results than over the counter systems. Part of this is because the dentist has state of the art equipment and tools that work much faster and are capable of producing much better results in a short period of time. When a teeth whitening procedure is performed in the dentist's office, the patient is closely monitored throughout the entire treatment. This ensures the procedure is performed exactly according to the instructions and the patient receives the results they expected.
