Why Less Is More When Whitening Your Teeth

Why Less Is More When Whitening Your Teeth

Teeth whitening could be an easy way to significantly improve the appearance of your smile. However, when whitening your teeth, it's important to remember that less is more!


When someone over-whitens their teeth, the result can be quite jarring. Brilliant, blindingly white teeth can look a little weird and not particularly attractive.

Unless you have a career in modelling or perhaps television, it’s much better to err on the side of caution when it comes to whitening. Over-doing teeth whitening can have the opposite of the intended effect: it could make your smile less attractive.

Not only can over whitening your teeth look odd, but it can also lead to dental health problems. The whitening process can soften your enamel, making your teeth extra sensitive, and in some extreme cases, it could even cause your teeth to become an odd, blue-grey colour.

Nonetheless, teeth whitening is very safe and it takes a lot of over-whiten to wind up with oral health problems.

Just remember that it's important to exercise caution.
