7 Things Dentists Wish You Knew About Teeth Whitening

Table of Contents

TL:DR Summary

  • Teeth whitening is not a one-time procedure: It requires regular maintenance and touch-ups to keep your smile bright and white.
  • Teeth whitening is not for everyone: It may not work on some types of stains, such as those caused by medications, trauma, or fluorosis.
  • Teeth whitening is not harmful to your teeth: It does not damage your enamel or cause permanent sensitivity, as long as you follow the proper guidelines and precautions.
  • Teeth whitening is not a substitute for oral hygiene: It is important to brush, floss, and visit your dentist regularly to prevent plaque, tartar, and decay.
  • Teeth whitening is not a DIY project: It is best to consult a professional before using any over-the-counter products or home remedies, as they may be ineffective or unsafe.
  • Teeth whitening is not a magic bullet: It can improve your appearance and confidence, but it cannot fix other dental issues, such as crooked, chipped, or missing teeth.

Introduction: 7 Things Dentists Wish You Knew About Teeth Whitening

Just like everyone else you want to have the brightest and whitest teeth ever possible. However, it is important to have a dental examination to ensure that your mouth is healthy. That the problem such as cavities and gum disease need to be addressed and treated before you do your teeth whitening. Why is this the case? “Teeth whitening that is peroxide-based is meant to whiten the innermost layer, not the structure inside the tooth near the nerves,” based on Jennifer Jablow, a cosmetic dentist in New York City. In this article on teeth whitening by Wellaholic, we are going to share with you the Top 7 things that dentists wish you would know before you start your teeth whitening treatment.

Tip #1: Get an Examination First by a Dentist

If you’re considering professional teeth whitening, it’s important to get an examination first by a dentist. According to a blog post by Noll Family Dentistry, a dental exam prior to teeth whitening is essential to determine the overall health of your teeth, gums, and mouth. During the exam, your dentist will check for any issues that may interfere with the whitening process or cause sensitivity, such as cavities or gum disease. Additionally, the exam allows your dentist to recommend the best whitening options based on your individual needs and goals. By getting an examination first, you can ensure that your teeth are healthy enough for whitening and that you get the best possible results.

Based on a survey by Wellaholic Research, 83.5% of people believe that having a bright and healthy smile is an important social asset.

Coffee is a major source of stains on teeth, and over time, these stains can lead to tooth discoloration

Tip #2: Watch What Passes Through Your Lips 

Certain food and beverages such as coffee, tea, wine or even blended juices can cause tooth discoloration. Other foods such as dark soy sauce or even curry may also cause staining to the teeth. By limiting these foods, it will help your teeth stay as white as possible post procedure. Otherwise, remember to brush your teeth and wipe then clean after consuming coffee or tea.

A Consistent Habit to Brush Teeth

A consistent habit will help you to save your teeth from getting stained again. Also, do consider eating more foods such as cauliflower, strawberries, seeds and nuts as they may help to whiten teeth and also speed up the whitening process naturally.

Here is a table summarizing the common factors that can cause teeth stains:

Food and DrinksCertain food and drinks, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and dark-colored fruits and vegetables, contain pigments that can stain teeth.
TobaccoBoth smoking and chewing tobacco can lead to yellow or brown stains on teeth.
AgeAs we age, the outer layer of tooth enamel can wear away, revealing the yellowish dentin underneath.
MedicationsCertain medications, such as tetracycline and doxycycline, can cause teeth stains when given to children whose teeth are still developing.
TraumaTrauma to a tooth can cause it to change color, and it may be difficult to remove these stains.
GeneticsSome people may have naturally thinner or more translucent tooth enamel, which can make their teeth appear more yellow or gray.

Tip #3: You May Need More Than One Treatment to See The Best Results 

If you want to maintain your newly whitened teeth, you may require consistent commitment and maintenance. This is to prevent your sparkle from losing its lustre. Also, tying up with tip #2, by having regular maintenance sessions for teeth whitening, you can combat the staining that happens from staining foods and beverages.

TeethWhite by Wellaholic

At Wellaholic, we offer TeethWhite™ Unlimited, which offers 4 weekly treatments a month. This is very popular with our customers who are working to whiten their teeth several shades at a time, as well as to maintain their teeth’s whiteness. 

While many toothpastes claim to whiten teeth, they typically contain only small amounts of whitening agents such as hydrogen peroxide or baking soda.

Tip #4: There Is A Limit to What Toothpastes Can Do

The Reality of Teeth Whitening Toothpastes

It’s essential to set realistic expectations when it comes to teeth whitening toothpastes. Although many claim to whiten teeth, they generally contain minimal quantities of whitening agents such as hydrogen peroxide or baking soda.

The Role of Fluoride in Toothpastes

An Australian Prescriber study highlights that toothpaste’s primary function is preventing dental caries, courtesy of fluoride dentifrices. Most modern toothpastes contain 0.1% (1000 ppm) fluoride, typically as sodium monofluorophosphate (MFP), which helps thwart dental caries.

Limitations of Toothpaste and Need for Professional Whitening Treatments

Toothpaste can certainly assist in removing surface stains and enhancing overall teeth appearance, but they may fall short for more severe discoloration or deep-set stains. In these scenarios, professional teeth whitening treatments may be the best course of action to achieve your desired smile.

Tip #5: Fake Teeth May Not Whiten

​The majority of veneers, crowns and fillings will not brighten or whiten with teeth whitening treatments. This is based on a study by the American Dental Association. Hence, if you are planning to whiten your teeth, you have to be prepared for a mismatch of colouring if you do not replace the older restorations. In any case, always inform your dentist or consultant if you have any veneers, crowns or fillings for them to better advise you. 

Some stains, such as those caused by aging, certain medications, or trauma, may be more difficult to remove and may require more advanced whitening treatments such as professional in-office whitening or at-home whitening kits.

Tip #6: Not All Teeth Stains Are Easy to Remove 

Effectiveness of Whitening Toothpaste and Mouthwash

Understanding the type of teeth stains you have is crucial in effective treatment. Whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes can help erase surface stains, giving your smile a brightened look, but they might not be as effective against deeper or more stubborn stains.

Types of Stains and Advanced Whitening Treatments

As outlined by Colgate, using whitening products like toothpaste and mouthwash can gradually lighten stains over time. However, some stains, caused by aging, certain medications, or trauma, may prove more resistant and may require advanced whitening treatments. These can include professional in-office whitening procedures or at-home whitening kits.

Personal Oral Hygiene Practices and Dental Consultation

It’s essential to maintain good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing twice a day, flossing, and regular dentist visits, to prevent new stains and maintain a healthy, brighter smile. Consultation with a dentist will help determine the best teeth whitening approach suited to your specific needs and goals.

Tip #7: You Can Whiten Teeth Even If You Have Braces

Yes, attaining a set of pearly whites even while wearing braces is achievable. However, the kind of braces you're wearing can influence the efficacy of certain whitening methods.

Teeth Whitening with Braces: Is it Possible?

Yes, attaining a set of pearly whites even while wearing braces is achievable. However, the kind of braces you’re wearing can influence the efficacy of certain whitening methods.

Whitening Options for Different Types of Braces

Traditional braces, characterized by brackets that cover the front of your teeth, can limit your teeth whitening options. Conversely, other types of braces, such as lingual or removable aligners, do not obstruct the tooth surface, facilitating a more comprehensive whitening treatment.

Incorporating Teeth Whitening into Oral Care Routine

Regardless of the type of braces you have, it’s worth considering integrating teeth whitening into your routine oral care to maintain a bright and healthy smile throughout your orthodontic treatment.
