How Cheap Whitening Treatments Damage Teeth

How Cheap Whitening Treatments Damage TeethTeeth whitening is becoming extremely popular, and you are probably even able to find inexpensive kits at your local drugstore or whitening kiosks at your mall. Unfortunately, the cheap whitening may come at a high cost. Our Thousand Oaks cosmetic dentist can help you find the whitening product or treatment that is most appropriate for your smile and your needs.

One of the bigger risks of OTC whitening kits is that they can be easy to overuse. The peroxide bleaching agent is highly irritating to your gums, and if they are regularly exposed to it, they can bleed and recede, leaving your roots exposed and your teeth more susceptible to decay. Over-bleaching can also damage the teeth. Enamel can become worn and more translucent, which allows the darker dentin to show through more clearly. Whitening toothpastes are no safer. In fact, whitening toothpastes tend to use harsh abrasives to scrub away stains. They are generally only effective for superficial stains and should not be used regularly because they can etch and damage your enamel. Whitening kiosks may be just as risky. Operators may not be adequately trained or may not use recommended procedures.

Professional whitening offers professional results. Our expert in teeth whitening in Thousand Oaks can evaluate your smile to determine if you are a candidate for the procedure and make personalized recommendations. In-office and at-home whitening are both available and can help you safely reach your smile goals. Contact us today to find out more or to schedule your consultation.
