Want whiter teeth? Just go out and buy a whitening kit and your troubles are over – or not. There are a few things that can go wrong when using an over the counter tooth whitening product.
The whitening strips or the trays that hold the whitening mixture are obviously not custom made and if they don’t fit you properly it can affect the results. The whitening compounds found in the kits that you buy on the market aren’t as strong as those used by a dental professional. If your stains are too extreme an average strength dose may not be enough to get the job done.
If you feel that you have followed the directions provided in your home whitening kit and everything seemed to go well except for the fact that your teeth didn’t look any whiter afterward, there may be another reason.
Your dentist will tell you that some stains are easier to get rid of than others. Most stains that are caused by the foods and drinks that we consume don’t penetrate below the surface of the teeth so that whitening compounds can work effectively to remove them. Some tooth discoloration however, is caused by a weakness in the enamel. A dental professional can evaluate your teeth and find out what may be at the bottom of the problem.
