Common Teeth Whitening Myths Debunked Part 2

Stop believing the myths about teeth whitening!

If you’ve had a chance to read our latest blog, then you already know that there are many myths out there about teeth whitening. We all would love to have whiter teeth, but unfortunately, believing the myths about teeth whitening won’t help you get them! Here are a few more common teeth whitening myths that you should stop believing:

Myth #4. There are no side effects associated with teeth whitening. 

While it’s true that The American Dental Association has stated that most products available for teeth whitening are safe, some people experience sensitivity with teeth whitening. This is yet another reason to choose professional zoom whitening in Texarkana over at-home teeth whitening. With professional teeth whitening, the results will be monitored, and your dentist can help at the first sign of irritation.

Myth #5. Your teeth will whiten evenly. 

The fact of the matter is that different teeth react differently to whitening products. Some teeth simply respond better than others. For example, teeth that are grey take longer to whiten than teeth that are yellow. Additionally, whitening products do not affect fillings, dentures or crowns, so your teeth may look unevenly white if you have any of these.

Teeth whitening can give you a confident, beautiful smile, but before you go to the store for an at-home kit or you start trying to make your own baking soda solution, it’s important to know the truth about the myths.
