How to Make Your Teeth Whiter (Without Destroying Your Enamel)

May 31, 2018

For many of us, the thought that healthy teeth are white teeth is very common in today’s society. There are many “truth” put on the internet that are intentionally written or made to be misleading. Conventional teeth whitening can be quick and dramatic, but is it safe? What is the long-term effect these treatments can have on our precious teeth?

How Can I Naturally Whiten My Teeth Safely?

While the quantity of patience amongst our peers seems to be diminishing, the want to have white teeth fast is so common. It is important to know, though, that we have to be willing to pay for it in the long run. There is good news though: there are plenty of guidelines you can follow to have a bite set of teeth that won’t destroy your enamel.

The Long-Term Game Plan to a Healthy White Smile

It is important to take note of where you start. In order to know the method of whitening you’re implanting works, it is imperative to know where your tooth color began. Be sure to give yourself two to three months before really taking note of any kind of progress. It is important to not continue to do anything that can dull the color of your teeth while you embark on this journey.

DIY Whitening Solutions vs. In-Office Whitening

The biggest take away from all of these do-it-yourself options is that they are much less dramatic and effective than in-office whitening. At your dentist’s office, you can expect to leave with your teeth a different shade by the end of your appointment. These whitening options are much subtler and will take some time to finally see results, but they are much easier on your tooth’s enamel.
