Everybody wants shiny white teeth but it has certain drawbacks as well. Using various types of whitening strips and gels has several disadvantages. Here we discuss some of the aspects pertaining to this issue:
According to various studies done on whitening products, it has been proved that many teeth whitening strips and gels that are easily available in the market contain hydrogen peroxide. This compound easily whitens the teeth and removes the stains. These products, however, may cause damage to the proteins which are there in the dentin layer of our teeth.
As per the research done on these products, they may roughen the surface of the tooth. However, dentists claim that these problems are not permanent and may be dispensed with if the person stops using them. The dentists are not quite sure, however, on whether these products will have a long-term effect or not.
The American Dental Association, in its study has found that hydrogen peroxide does not aggravate the issue related to tooth fracture or cavity and whiteners containing hydrogen peroxide are safer than others.
Once you start following these steps and avoid the stain in the first place, you won’t need to use any kind of teeth whitening products such as whitening strips or gels which may damage your teeth. If you still go ahead and use these products and face any problems after using them reach out to the experts at Pacific Heights Dental Studio for the best advice.
