4 Teeth Whitening Don’ts
http://www.DrMohanty.com Before rushing out and buying a teeth whitening product, there are 4 major no-no’s you need to be aware of.
http://www.DrMohanty.com 1. Don’t Use on Artificial Surfaces
http://www.DrMohanty.com One of the things most people don’t know about teeth whitening products is that they don’t work on artificial tooth surfaces.
http://www.DrMohanty.com So if you have had veneers, implants, crown or fillings, then be aware that these parts of your dental structure will not respond to teeth whitening products.
http://www.DrMohanty.com What will happen instead is that they will remain the same color while your natural teeth will be whitened, resulting in a dental patchwork of different shades.
http://www.DrMohanty.com To avoid this fashion faux-pas, it is best to first consult a dentist on the best way to whiten your teeth.
http://www.DrMohanty.com 2. Don’t use on Badly Discolored Teeth
http://www.DrMohanty.com Teeth whitening products are not the magic solution to treating badly discolored teeth.
http://www.DrMohanty.com If you have very bad dark teeth stains, such as those caused by excessive cigarette smoking or fluoride water, the normal home kits will give you below average results and will just be a waste of time and money.
http://www.DrMohanty.com For seriously discolored teeth, it is best to consult your dentist who can use professional strength teeth whiteners that will give you better results and more value for your money.

http://www.DrMohanty.com If you are expecting a baby, then you should definitely keep off all teeth whitening products as the smallest ingestion of teeth whitening ingredients can harm the development of the fetus.
http://www.DrMohanty.com The best thing to do is to put of any teeth whitening plan until after your delivery.
http://www.DrMohanty.com 4. Don’t use if you have Inflamed Gums
http://www.DrMohanty.com If you suffer from inflamed gums or other dental problems, you should stay clear of teeth whitening products until you get your dental problem sorted out.
http://www.DrMohanty.com Whitening products will only aggravate your condition and cause painful tooth sensitivity that will make eating or drinking very difficult.
