The Easy Way To Whiten Your Teeth (Experts Won't Tell You!)


Everyone loves a dazzling smile. That's why so many of us reach for the tooth whiteners when our teeth start to look yellow.

 

Common foods and drinks -- such as coffee, red wine, and berries -- and, of course, smoking, cause teeth to stain and lose their brightness. The effects are often exaggerated as we age, says Mark Wolff, DDS, professor at NYU College of Dentistry. Wear and tear creates etchings on the tooth surface, "making teeth more susceptible to stains," he says. That's why you might notice that foods you've been eating for years discolor your teeth more these days.

 

Over-the-counter whiteners can be a good option and don’t necessarily mean poor quality.  Whitening strips are your best bet because they adhere reasonably well to the tooth surface, particularly on the top teeth, keeping gel where it can best penetrate enamel. White teeth are alluring, but keep expectations in check. "There's only a finite color change you can achieve, Two or three shades lighter than your current color is reasonable. And be sure to follow instructions. Overdoing whitening efforts can harm tooth structure, leading to translucent, see-through teeth that appear blue or gray.

 

Transforming a dull smile into a bright one can be done safely and effectively with the following precautions:

 

Beware of tooth sensitivity. Tooth and gum sensitivity is a common side effect of teeth whiteners. "You don't want to use the strongest and fastest [solution] because it comes with the most side effects.

 

Watch bonding and veneers. If you have bonding or veneers on your teeth, whiten before having dental work done, or skip it altogether. "These don't whiten with bleaching agents. Restorations will maintain their original color while the teeth around them lighten. The end result is a multicolored smile.

 

Skip whiteners if you have gum disease. Whiteners can accelerate gum deterioration, so talk with your dentist about alternate ways to brighten your smile.

 

Achieve a whiter, brighter smile with the right product for you.
