Serious about getting whiter teeth? Do this:

If want to know the best way how to whiten teeth and you’re serious about getting the best results, there are two critical things you should do:

  1. Choose a dentist to oversee your whitening campaign
  2. Stay away from DIY products because they usually aren’t very strong and can be damaging. To make up for this, they use abrasives which can damage your enamel.

Choose a dentist for teeth whitening

We thoroughly recommend a dentist for tooth whitening for several good reasons.

Diagnosis – Only a dentist can see where your stains are coming from. Your tooth discolouration may have come from everyday stains like tea and coffee or red wine. These types of stains are easier to remove through bleaching. Alternatively, they may have come from tetracycline stains (an oral antibiotic now no longer used). Some bleaches can remove tetracyclines stains, but it is more difficult to achieve.

Your treatment will depend on the type of stain you have. Also, your dentist can check for cavities or gum infections. Decayed teeth can be extremely painful to whiten – so this is something you need to avoid. By visiting your dentist, they can spot any decay, treat it with a filling or whatever is required before you go on to your whitening regimen.

Faster results – as dentists are professionals, they are legally permitted to use more potent formulas. So you’ll be able to whiten your teeth several shades lighter than what’s possible if bought at of beautician’s clinic or over-the-counter at a pharmacy. (Teeth whitening toothpaste, whitening pens and strips may help a tiny bit, but not a lot.)

A dentist can check for any dental health problems that need to be clear before whitening, diagnose the cause of your tooth discolouration, and prescribe a stronger whitening formula than DIY whiteners for faster and better results.

Stay away from DIY whitening kits & products

We thoroughly recommend you stay away from over-the-counter DIY whitening kits and products. Here’s why:

Failed-Teeth-whitening-with-damaged-enamelYou could damage your teeth or gums – Australian Dentists continue to see an increasing number of damaged teeth caused by over-the-counter tooth whitening products. Consequently, the Australian Dental Association  encourages all patients to only talk to the dentist regarding teeth whitening. Avoid advice and products on Instagram – and don’t purchase your whitening kits from pharmacies, beauticians or anywhere else.

DIY kits and products are weak and give poor results – As mentioned, dentists are legally permitted to use much stronger formulas. DIY whitening kits, however, and only contain a small amount of bleach. So how do they counteract this? They use harsh abrasives to really scrub the teeth. But this, unfortunately, damages enamel, allowing the yellow-coloured dentin underneath to be more visible.

DIY kits are one size fits all – and not all teeth and gums are the same. If you react after applying your treatment, there’s no dentist to correct the problem or relieve your pain (e.g. from a severe burn to the gums).
