Dentists worry that teenagers are risking their teeth and oral health by trying dangerous do-it-yourself teeth-whitening techniques on the Internet. Too many teenagers use online tips for do-it-yourself teeth whitening since money and access to proper dental whitening care may be outside their reach. However, Children who mix quantities of different chemicals and apply them for long periods are at risk of eroding their tooth enamel and damaging their gums, increasing their risk of oral infection.

Whitening toothpaste can help remove surface stains on teeth and be a good option for those who want to maintain their teeth’s brightness after professional whitening treatment. However, they do not have the same strength as professional teeth whitening treatments and may not be effective for deep stains. It’s important to note that excessive toothpaste whitening can also damage tooth enamel, so it’s best to follow the instructions and use it in moderation. Suppose you’re looking for a more dramatic change in the color of your teeth. In that case, it’s best to consult your dentist about professional teeth whitening options or ask them the best course of action: talk to your dentist about safely whitening your teeth or what over-the-counter product they may suggest.
