We live in an age where white teeth rule. People flock to dentistry offices and grab all kinds of products in the pursuit of tooth whitening. Most celebrities are remarkable for their seemingly whiter than white smiles, and a lot of people aim to hit that level of whiteness. Some people remark that pursuing such a level of whiteness can harm your teeth, yet is that the case? Also, have we reached a point where teeth cannot get any whiter?
It is true that the pursuit of whiteness can potentially do some damage to the enamel of your teeth, but this is generally only true of products that you use at home without the supervision of a dentist. Some of these products also have lackluster results. We strongly recommend that you do not pursue teeth whitening from anyone but alicensed dentist who will handle your teeth with care and consideration.
The most important thing to remember is that these are no one’s teeth but your own. If you would like your teeth to be so white that they light up a room you should go for it! On the other hand, if you find yourself more drawn to a natural shade of white then you should feel comfortable knowing that is okay! You should feel confident in your smile no matter the decision.
Remember that no matter what shade of whiteness you decide on, always take care of your oral health. It is hard to maintain a beautiful smile when you are dealing with tooth decay and gum disease. You may even be surprised to find how white your smile has become while maintaining proper dental hygiene.
There is a lot to consider when looking at the proper level of whiteness for your teeth. Ultimately, the decision is up to you, but we would love to help you achieve that ideal smile.
