Can Whitening Strips be Dangerous for Your Enamel? Discover the Truth.

Home Teeth Whitening is now as effective as dental office treatments, in addition to being less expensive and more convenient. It's now possible (in almost all cases) to achieve dental office quality teeth whitening, from the comfort of your own home. At-Home teeth whitening and bleaching has taken a bite out of (sorry about the pun) the in-office power bleaching systems, where millions of corporate advertising dollars now compete with the comfort of doing it at home. And rightly so... Up until a few years ago, teeth whitening was a fairly complex process - the hard part was making those fitted mouthpieces for each patient. For this reason alone, home teeth whitening was not an option for most people.

Essentially, in 2019 we have 2 different types of Home Teeth Whitening that really work: Whitening Strips and LED Mouth Tray Systems.


*1st Type: Teeth Whitening Strips


Whitestrips in principal is a great concept. The main lure of this type of home teeth whitening is their simplicity of use. They're easy to apply and no preparation is necessary. Again, everybody loves shortcuts, right? Unfortunately, once again that's exactly the type of teeth whitening you end up getting! Let me explain...

Why don't Teeth Whitening Strips work? Strips that stick on your teeth usually consist of an upper strip and a lower strip each pressed against the outer surface of your teeth. Now think about this for a second...are your teeth completely flat? Of course not - they have recesses and grooves, particularly between each tooth. Well imagine you're painting a fence, and you just slapped paint on the outside, without taking the time to paint the grooves between each wooden board. That fence would look pretty funny wouldn't it? Nicely painted on the outside, but in the grooves between each wooden board, still dark and dingy, with all of the old paint showing. When you use whitening strips, the same thing can easily happen to your teeth if you're not careful. The whiter your teeth become, the more pronounced those dingy cracks seem! Eventually it can end up looking like you have small gaps between your teeth. Also, all whitestrips contains pure hydrogen peroxide which can damage your enamel. Definitely not the desired result!


*2nd Type: LED Mouth Tray With Bleaching Gels  (MOST EFFECTIVE!)


LED Mouth Trays with bleaching gels still provide the best combination of the most affordable and most efficient tooth whitening available. I can let you in on a few little secrets here. First, most of the bleaching gels available at your dentist are exactly the same. There is very little difference from one dentist to another, because the gels are formulated by a small number of manufacturers here in the USA. Second, most of the bleaching gels available at retail stores are of very poor quality because most of them from China. They've been sitting in a warehouse or on a truck for who knows how long - and, because they are designed to be "low cost" (with low cost being sometimes the only consideration), they have very low concentrations of active ingredients. Make sure you use a bleaching gel with a concentration of at least 21% of Carbamide Peroxide - this means a whiter result in a shorter period of time!
