Teeth Whitening: Talking Myths And Facts

As with anything that seems fantastic, there will be some truth out there that you can easily get your hands on … and then there will be some myths. When we’re talking about teeth whitening, you can expect just the same. The problem arises when you aren’t sure what’s real, what’s not, and it affects your ability to choose cosmetic care for your own smile. Of course, and you’ve heard this many times before, when in doubt, the best thing to do is to ask us about it! However, for a brief walk through some extremely common areas of confusion and concern, our “myths versus facts” session will be of some assistance.

Myths Versus Facts!

Myth: Teeth whitening will damage your teeth no matter what, even if you see us for professional treatment.

Fact: Whitening is usually only going to cause you damage if you take matters into your own hands with do-it-yourself or over-the-counter treatments. Professional care is safe for your smile!

Myth: A smile that looks whiter is always a much healthier smile. As a result, once you receive teeth whitening, your oral health will be in exceptional condition, too.

Fact: The color of your smile may or may not be indicative of its level of health. We will not whiten a smile that is not healthy (we’ll have to fix it first!) nor would whitening an unhealthy smile make it better (it may actually make problems worse).

Myth: Teeth whitening is something that works for only a few people. The chances of actually qualifying are fairly slim.

Fact: Professional whitening works for most people! If you are unsure about whether you’re a candidate or need a different approach for whiter teeth, simply schedule a visit.
