Smile Whitening: Dangerous Or Perfectly Safe?

When you want an answer to the question involving whether or not teeth whitening is safe, this isn’t something our Austin, TX can respond to with a simple yes or no answer. This is, in part, because there are many ways to whiten your smile, many types of treatments, and patients often look into many different approaches. So, in short, the answer is sometimes! With a bit more detail, the answer is: If you seek professional care, then yes … if you try to do it on your own, then no. However, we prefer to give you the information-packed version, so you feel educated in regard to your options!

Do It Yourself (DIY) Problems

When you try select DIY teeth whitening or any other type of dental care for that matter, you have things going against you. First, you’re treating your own teeth, which means you don’t have an experienced, trained professional assisting you. You cannot know whether you’re making a safe choice, application, etc. for your smile. This may yield oral health damage! Next, the outcome is unpredictable, so you may or may not see results.

In-Person And Online Shopping

You might feel that if you have a teeth whitening kit that seems legitimate because you’re purchasing it from a well-known source that, of course, the results should be just fine (and so should your oral health). However, the same is true in regard to trying to rely on your own do-it-yourself efforts as is true of the stuff you can purchase without the help of a professional: It’s not necessarily safe, it could damage your smile, it will probably not guide you toward the improvement you want, and will disappoint. As a result, it also turns out to be a wasted investment!
