To whiten or not to whiten?
Teeth whitening isn't new, but new techniques and materials are constantly popping up. It seems that almost daily, a new product is targeting us on Instagram, or available on store shelves. It is important to note, that many of these "new" techniques and materials are not yet supported by high quality scientific research. You should therefore be critical of trendy, flashy new methods. If it seems too good to be true, it likely is. There is even disagreement within the professional dental community as to whether teeth whitening should be done at all, and if yes, how often, or how strong should the concentration be? The safest and best thing to do, is to speak with your dentist about your specific needs and they will guide you in the best direction that is personalized to you!
