The COVID-19 pandemic has kept us indoors and living with ourselves more often, which means we’ve had to look in the mirror more often than usual… As a result, the desire for teeth whitening has grown beyond comprehension! Although, it’s not just at our dental practice, patients are seen to be trying new methods at home!
There’s no harm in trying to whiten your teeth yourself… right? Wrong! There are always risks, especially if you are using products that can damage your teeth! If you’re trying out a home remedy to alter your smile, it’s important you use products that are approved by dentists.
Many people who desire a whiter smile, may not opt for a cosmetic procedure in fear of the procedure causing sensitivity, which is very real! Cosmetic teeth whitening, as a result is usually reserved for adults after the ages of 18 – 21.
It’s important to consult your dentist at Smiles Nambour if you desire to have your teeth cosmetically whitened
Need a safe alternative to cosmetic procedures? You’ve come to the right place!
Here are four methods you can try from home, professionally approved and sold in your local supermarkets!
- Toothpaste: No, we’re not pulling your leg! There’s no better way to improve the visibility of your teeth than by the power of the toothbrush! Brushing your teeth with toothpaste, including toothpaste with whitening agents such as; silica, pyrophosphates, hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which remove the extrinsic stains, thereby lightening the teeth colour.
- Teeth Whitening Kits at Home! Did you know you can order teeth whitening kits from us today?
