It’s completely natural to begin assuming you should try to whiten your teeth on your own before you branch out for professional care. However, it’s absolutely not in your best interest to follow this line of thinking. Why not? Well, OTC teeth whitening sounds alluring but it actually comes with more drawbacks than benefits. For clearer comprehension regarding why it’s best to brighten your smile with us, consider a few important details you should know about.
What’s Wrong With OTC Options?
When it comes to over-the-counter teeth whitening, you need to understand that it’s dangerous for your smile. You should also keep in mind that the pictures on the box and on TV are not going to offer up a very realistic result for your own smile. OTC options can hurt your teeth by dehydrating them, they may damage your soft tissues if they aren’t properly protected, and they are probably going to leave you feeling disappointed.
Things To Avoid
Remember that there are many types of OTC teeth whitening options out there. We generally suggest that you steer clear of all of them. The only thing that you should do on your own is to continue brushing and flossing on a daily basis. As for whitening, skip the whitening toothpaste, strips, trays, paint-on-whitening, and associated items.
