Does Teeth Whitening Damage Your Teeth?

This is the million dollar question.
The answer is no. Tooth whitening does not damage your teeth.
Its all a myth. If performed correctly by a dental professional or using at home products as instructed by your dentist it is considered safe.
Here’s why teeth whitening doesn’t harm your teeth:
1. Removal of surface stains: whitening agents work to break down and remove stains such as tea, coffee, red wine, tobacco and certain foods.
2. Temporary tooth sensitivity: One of the most common side effects. Whitening briefly opens the pores in the enamel allowing bleaching agents to penetrate, although this goes away after a short period.
3. Proper application: follow instructions and recommendations from your dentist.
And that’s only a few! We wouldn’t recommend something if it was unsafe for your teeth.

Q: “How does stress affect my oral health?” ️
A: Stress can take a toll on your pearly whites in many ways! When stress builds up we may unknowingly clench our jaw or grind our teeth. This can lead to worn enamel, jaw pain and even headaches.
Stress weakens our immune system, making it harder for our bodies to fight off infections.
This includes gum disease, which can result in bleeding gums, inflammation, and bad breath.
Under stress, we often turn to unhealthy coping mechanisms like sugary snacks or neglecting oral hygiene routines. These choices can pave the way for tooth decay and other oral issues.
