Myths about teeth whitening
Teeth whitening has always been a very popular cosmetic treatment option. However, many people have certain myths against this procedure:
Teeth become sensitive:-
For customers who already have sensitive teeth, they can become more sensitive temporarily. The dentist at Spadent makes use of different gels to reduce sensitivity before and after treatment.
It is painful:-
Teeth whitening is mostly painless, but just in case the bleaching agent touches your gums, it can cause discomfort. A gel known as Gingival Barrier is applied by the dentist on gums to prevent the solution from affecting teeth.
It can lead to mouth cancer:-
The effect of whitening lasts for a lesser period of time in a regular coffee drinker, a smoker and betelnut chewers. There is no scientific proof to say that whitening leads to mouth cancer.
It damages the enamel:-
The use of peroxide is safe to whiten teeth, as per scientific evidence. Teeth become brighter due to bleaching gel, and do not affect the enamel. Earlier methods were relatively harsher than today.
