Bleachorexia - The Warning Signs and Health Risks of Over-whitening Your Teeth

Teeth whitening is always in season and while we are definite advocates for keeping pearly whites, it's important to bleach your teeth right and not suffer from “bleachorexia”. We want you to know the warning signs and health risks associated with over-whitening your teeth as shared by our favorite expert, Dr. Timothy Chase, Cosmetic Dentist and Practicing Partner at SmilesNY.

Three signs of over whitening:
1.      Sensitive teeth, especially too cold.
2.      Inflamed or bleeding gums.
3.      Teeth that look blue or see through along the edge.

Three health risks that arise from over whitening
1.       Damage to the nerves of your teeth.
2.       Thinning of your tooth enamel.
3.       Burning of your gums.

Three ways to safely and effectively whiten
1.       Have your teeth examined and cleaned prior to whitening- to make sure there are no cavities or gum issues. Clean teeth get a much better result!
2.       Follow the directions on all teeth whitening products perfectly.
3.       Find quality products by speaking to your dentist about your teeth whitening options.

The Simplest Way For Whiter Teeth

Do you want pearly whites but can't afford to professionally get your teeth whitened? Well, look no further than your closest grocery store. When you get there, pick up some baking soda! Baking soda is an age-old teeth whitening remedy that is under-utilized since white strips and teeth whitening kits have stolen the show. But, don't sleep on the baking soda method. Simply dip your toothbrush in baking soda then scrub away on your teeth. Stay committed and watch a significant improvement in the color of your teeth. Extra tip: The more saliva you accumulate the better off your teeth will be. According to WebMD, saliva neutralizes the acid that causes tooth decay. If you're going to be at the grocery store picking up baking soda, you might as well also pick up some celery, apples, pears, and carrots as they trigger saliva which helps to wash away food debris on your teeth.

Good luck!
