Reasons to Avoid Cheap At-Home Whitening Kits

Reasons to Avoid Cheap At Home Whitening Kits

With the new school year quickly approaching, the confidence boost that can come from a full set of white teeth is quickly growing on the minds of many. With white teeth, you can really look your best, but with the temptation of buying cheap whitening kids online or in your local drugstore growing as well, it is important that we keep our patients educated about why to avoid cheap at home whitening kits in the damage that they can do. At Dr. Cabrera Dental Associates, we want you all looking your best, so let’s take a look at a few risks.

  1. They Cause Damage to Your Teeth
    Cheap at home whitening kids can cause great damage to your teeth, particularly the protective enamel that coats the main portion of your tooth. At home whitening kits require more regular use, usually daily use to take effect and really brighten your smile. This means that you will be bleaching and gelling your teeth on a daily basis, which can really wreck the protective enamel on your teeth making you more susceptible to hot and cold temperatures.
  2. They Can Cause Tooth Decay
    At-home whitening kit should also not be seen as a solution to correct tooth decay or problems you may have with your teeth. Teeth whitening kits are a solely anesthetic solution to teeth that may lack the previous luster. But if you are currently experiencing problems with damaged or decayed teeth, then you should consider different cosmetic treatments that can be a benefit to you.
  3. You Won’t Get the Look You Want
    With cheap at home whitening kits, the real reason to not use them is that you really won’t be getting the look you want. At our office in Houston, TX, we offer solutions to stain teeth that will not only offer you real results, but they can be done in a short amount of time.
