Our smiles are multi-dimensional and there are various factors that play a part in whether we enjoy or dislike our teeth. One factor that contributes to a nice smile is the color of your teeth. As we age and due to other habits such as coffee and smoking, our teeth can become discolored. When this happens many people will rush to the nearest store to purchase an over-the-counter teeth whitening system. Though these systems as safe and FDA approved, the American Dental Society suggests consulting with your dentist before applying any type of teeth whitening product to your teeth.
The active ingredient in most teeth whitening systems is either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. Though these ingredients are not extremely harmful to the average dental patient, they can cause discomfort for those with gum recession or sensitive teeth. It's important to know if you suffer from any of these dental conditions before applying these ingredients to your teeth. Visiting a dentist before using these products will also give you a chance to ensure that they will provide you the results you want, but often times these products fall short.
