Articles Patients from London Should Avoid Dangerous Whitening Kits Bought Over the Internet
You may look in the mirror and notice your teeth are stained or discoloured, which may have been caused by smoking, chewing tobacco, tea drinking or red wine. “What can I do about it?” you think. So you research your options on the Internet and discover the following teeth whitening treatments:
- Zoom! Teeth Whitening.
- Power Whitening.
- Home Teeth Whitening Kits.
These treatments are best done under the supervision of a dental professional, but what about the cheaper options available on the internet?
Risks of Home Teeth Whitening Kits
The dangers of home teeth whitening kits are littered all over the Internet. They include:
- Excessive and unsafe application, which erodes the dental enamel.
- Bleaching products of questionable quality that cause tooth and gum tissue degeneration.
- Toxicity that is harmful for oral and overall health.
These risks translate to erosion of the tooth surface and enamel, resulting in abnormal levels of tooth sensitivity and dental pain. In some cases the overuse or quality of the bleaching product raises toxicity levels, which can be harmful not only to the teeth, but oral tissues and overall health if it spreads through the body. People from London affected by these risks end up paying far more for corrective and medical procedures, so in the long run they could cost you a great deal more than in practice whitening!
What can be done about the risks of Home Teeth Whitening Kits?
The dangers of home teeth whitening kits can be avoided by consulting your dentist. Dentists and dental hygienists can advise on teeth whitening treatments that can be done at home and provide you with supervision and advice. Costs can be discussed and payment options negotiated, so it is well worth playing it safe and buying your teeth whitening kits from your dentist, rather than off the Internet!
