Before and after of a dental whitening procedure

Having a beautiful white and sparkling smile can make all the difference in first impressions. Nobody likes to have yellow stained teeth. They just aren’t attractive.

Thankfully there are many ways to remove stains from our teeth, and one of the most popular ways to do this is through teeth whitening.

Teeth whitening has been around for a long time. However, some people are a bit sketchy about this whole procedure and wonder if it is safe.

Well, in this article, we will be answering that question as well as pose several alternative ways you can whiten your teeth.

Is Teeth Whitening Bad For Your Teeth?

To answer the question, yes. Yes, it is safe to use teeth whitening strips or products. However, it is salient to state that there may be some small side effects of using teeth whitening products, such as strips.

Strips can cause small irritation to the gums. And this is due mostly in part to the peroxide that can be found in the strips, which can lead to a slight burning sensation.

However, this is just a small inconvenience.

What Methods Can I Use To Whiten My Teeth?

Listed below are several methods you may want to consider to whiten your teeth.

These methods are:

  • Visit a dentist
  • Professional Teeth Whitening Kit
  • On-The-Go Whitening
  • Over The Counter Teeth Whitening Kits

These are just a few of the most popular teeth whitening methods you may want to consider. However, one that is much overlooked is to brush your teeth with baking soda.

Brushing your teeth with baking soda is a great way to remove stains from your teeth, as well as plaque.

In addition to brushing your teeth with baking soda, you will also want to gargle with peroxide. Gargling (DO NOT SWALLOW THE PEROXIDE) will help to remove any bacteria you have on your tongue or in your rotted tooth/teeth (if you have some).
