Teeth Whitening and Safety
Most people would like to have a brighter, whiter smile. There’s a whole industry based on this fact. But if you’re thinking of whitening your teeth through one means or another, you may be wondering how safe it is. After all, no matter which teeth whitening option you choose, it will involve putting chemicals on your teeth that are not naturally produced by your body. How are you supposed to know what’s safe and what can cause harm to your teeth or soft tissue? And if a method is completely safe, is it actually effective? These are the kinds of questions many people have when they consider a teeth whitening solution for themselves.
Continue reading to learn what exactly makes for a safe teeth whitening experience and to learn why the CustMbite Smile Whitening Kit is one of the safest teeth whitening options you can choose that is also effective, reliable, and affordable.
What makes a teeth whitening solution safe?
As you probably already know, there are many types of teeth whitening choices on the market. From toothpaste that guarantees a sparkling smile to LED light treatments that promise to whiten your teeth by 12 shades or more, you have your choice from a variety of options in a range of price brackets.
Right off, let’s eliminate some of the less effective methods of teeth whitening. For example, teeth whitening toothpaste can do a good job of removing surface stains from your teeth; that is, stains on the level of the enamel. But if you have stains or discoloration on the dentin level, beneath the enamel, the toothpaste option is useless.
On the other end of the spectrum are the futuristic-looking LED light teeth whitening trays. While they’re not unsafe and don’t cause harm, they also don’t do anything to whiten your teeth more than the solution you put on your teeth before applying the light. Dentists may use UV light to help speed up teeth whitening, but this type of light is highly regulated and available only in the dentist’s office.
The most effective over-the-counter teeth whitening options are teeth whitening strips and trays. So what are the qualities that make one teeth whitening kit safer than another? There are a few important things to keep in mind.
First, you want to find a teeth whitening kit that uses a solution made of carbamide peroxide, not hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is more aggressive and can cause damage to your teeth and soft tissues like your gums, cheeks, and lips. Also, hydrogen peroxide can cause a great deal of pain for you if you already have sensitive teeth. If you don’t already have sensitive teeth, hydrogen peroxide whitening solutions can cause your teeth to become sensitive by breaking down the enamel layer of your teeth.
Another ingredient to look out for is sodium chlorite, which is found in some teeth whitening options. This is legal to use, but scientific data has shown that it also causes harm to the enamel, leading to overly sensitive and potentially painful teeth. In addition, charcoal whitening toothpaste has been found by dental professionals to be too abrasive and it actually erodes the enamel on the surface of your teeth.
There is another danger with each of the above-mentioned ingredients. Imagine you are whitening your teeth with a product containing one of these damaging ingredients and you have a cavity and tooth decay that you were not aware of. You would quickly be made aware of it after applying any of these ingredients to it because it would cause a great deal of pain. It could also enlarge the decayed portion of the tooth.
Why is the CustMbite Smile Whitening Kit one of the safest teeth whitening options?
The CustMbite Smile Whitening Kit is one of the safest teeth whitening kits on the market. First, it uses carbamide peroxide instead of hydrogen peroxide, sodium chlorite, or charcoal. It actually uses two levels of carbamide peroxide. If you don’t have sensitive teeth, you can use the teeth whitening gel, which is a 22% solution of carbamide peroxide. If you do have sensitive teeth, you’ll want to use the gentler 8% solution found in the teeth whitening foam.
Regardless of whether you use the gel or the foam, another important safety feature is included in the CustMbite Smile Whitening Kit. The teeth whitening trays are designed so you can custom-fit them to your teeth. This means the teeth whitening solution will only touch your teeth and not the sensitive gum tissue surrounding them. Customizing the fit takes only a couple of minutes and does not require boiling the trays.
