Tooth whitening lightens teeth through the removal of stains and discoloration. It is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look. With white teeth, you will definitely look smarter and more gorgeous, and more confident about yourself. Teeth whitening, however, is not a one-time procedure. It needs to be repeated from time to time if you want to maintain the brighter color.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) is happy with the fact that millions of Americans today are more passionate about having a bright, white and healthy-looking smile – just like their favorite Hollywood stars. Due to wide demand of teeth whitening dental services and products, besides dental clinics, there are now teeth bleaching services offered in whitening spas. With dental clinics and spas is the availability of various over-the-counter whitening products, like age-defying chewing gum, white strips, leave-in trays, paint-on gels, mouth wash and brightening toothpaste. Many are not aware, however, that, if taken too far, teeth bleaching may cause serious damage to gums and teeth. It can result to teeth erosion and nerve damage which may cause pain, a feeling of mild itchiness to burning gums and/or acute sensitivity to air and/or sound.

Besides weakening the teeth and making them more prone to decay and more yellowish than white, over-bleaching can also destroy the teeth’s protective enamel which, by the way, never grows back. When too damaged, it will require the use of veneers or crowns to repair one’s teeth. These are the reasons why teeth whitening services should only be entrusted to skilled and licensed dentists and hygienists, while the use of whitening products, only according to said experts’ instructions.

According to the Passes Dental Care clinic, your teeth will darken over time due to: the food and beverages consumed, such as coffee, tea and soda; childhood medications and illnesses; and, tobacco use or improper oral hygiene; however, restoring your discolored teeth back to their natural white state is a skill dentists are capable of.
