Are you looking for a quick, non-invasive way to enhance your smile? Teeth whitening may very well be the answer. More and more people are paying for brighter, whiter teeth, but you may ask how teeth whitening works and if it is it safe.
Teeth whitening uses a bleaching agent, usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, to make your teeth lighter, but it can’t make your teeth brilliant or unnaturally white, although it can lighten the existing color impressively by several shades.
Teeth whitening should only be performed by a dentist or another regulated dental professional, such as a dental hygienist or dental therapist, on the prescription of a dentist. DIY home teeth whitening kits can also be purchased, but these may carry risks.
