I think we all wanted to have a dazzling white set of teeth. Some of us want it so badly that we even go to different lengths to achieve.
You know what, there are thousands of people who want to have beautiful and white teeth using teeth whitening products. Sadly, many of them back out or abandon that idea after they've encountered myths about teeth whitening.
So today, I'll reveal popular myths about teeth whitening products that are completely wrong. Let's get going and debunk these myths.
Myth 1#: They can whiten crowns, fillings, and veneers too!
Here's a prominent myth. Several people would still go for teeth whitening even though they have crowns and fillings. To them, this process can also whiten dental crowns and fillings. Sadly, it doesn't.
The material used in these dental implants is different from our teeth. They do not respond or react to the bleaching effects of teeth whitening products.
If you do insist on using it, be warned, you'll probably end up having uneven results. Or, you could just have your dental crowns replaced by your dentist. Remember, teeth whitening products don't work on dental implants.
Myth 2#: Don't use it you have sensitive teeth
Our thoughts about this idea are split. Just because you have this common dental problem, it doesn't mean you can't have your teeth whitened. People thought it would worsen the problem because teeth whitening products really do cause teeth sensitivity.
Yes, it does cause teeth sensitivity, but not permanently. Go to your dentist for a teeth whitening procedure. He/she will use desensitizing cream after the procedure to help negate the negative effects and make you comfortable.
There's no need to be worried. The sensitivity will go away after a couple of days. It's not permanent. Don't let it get into your head.
Myth 3#: Teeth whitening damages your teeth
I can't help but laugh about this myth. Some people thought that buying over the counter teeth whitening products can damage their teeth. It's completely bogus and untrue.
Let me explain. Our teeth have these tiny litter pores where our teeth absorb some nutrients. Stain-causing drinks, and foods stick to these pores, which causes a darker hue on your teeth.
Teeth whitening products help unclogged these pores, thus removing the stain off your teeth. Once they are removed, expect to experience mild teeth sensitivity for a couple of days.
Myth 4#: You'll be using it every now and then
No, you won't be using it every day for the rest of your life. As a matter of fact, you will eventually stop using it daily after reaching a certain hue.
Every manufacturer carefully instructs its consumers to reduce the frequency of using the product. Professionals have suggested that everyone should reduce their usage of teeth whitening after achieving a certain hue. Then you should only apply once every four months for a retouch.
Myths are just myths. They don't have any logical explanation to support themselves. That's why you should always seek the truth about it.
