Top 5 Teeth Whitening Myths Debunked


Do you have yellow or discoloured teeth? Have tried the Teeth Whitening fads that claim to be safe and effective, only to be disappointed by the results or end up with damaged gums and tooth enamel? 

Tooth discolouration is a common Dental concern that can easily be treated by Professional Teeth Whitening. However, there are many Teeth Whitening Myths that claim to whiten your teeth without the help of professionals. In this article, we will debunk the top 5 Teeth Whitening Myths and outline the best professional treatments that actually work!

Why Do People Whiten Discoloured Teeth?

Many people decide to whiten their teeth if they have noticeable tooth discolouration or to simply achieve a glowing smile. Tooth Whitening is also a common treatment to refresh your smile before a big event such as a wedding or birthday. Tooth Whitening can boost your smile to look healthier and more radiant.

Myth 1 – Teeth Whitening Is Damaging to Teeth Enamel

When whitening teeth with Professional Treatment, this is false. Dentists use high-quality Teeth Whitening Treatments that do not damage the tooth enamel. A Dentist will assess your oral health condition and level of discolouration, ensuring to use the right materials to achieve the best results safely. Cheap, over-the-counter Teeth Whitening kits may damage the enamel. Therefore, it’s important to visit an Oral Health Professional for safe Teeth Whitening.

Myth 2 – Over-the-counter Teeth Whitening Is as Effective as Professional Whitening

These days, the market is flooded with over-the-counter Teeth Whitening Products that claim to work just as well as Professional Teeth Whitening. Unfortunately, these products rarely make a noticeable difference to the shade of your teeth. In some cases, these products can actually do more harm than good. When receiving professional Teeth Whitening Treatment, your Dentist will use professional and tested formulas to achieve the best results safely.

Myth 3 – Teeth Whitening Looks Unnatural

When Teeth Whitening is performed professionally, this is completely false. Professional Whitening will help your smile to look healthier and naturally brighter. Check out our Teeth Whitening before and after photos to see how beautiful and natural the results can look.

Myth 4 – Teeth Whitening Results Last Forever

Professional Teeth Whitening results can last up to two years, but not forever. Even the best Teeth Whitening treatments can discolour over time. As tooth discolouration can be caused by the ageing process and certain lifestyle choices, teeth may discolour over time once again. You can reduce the risk of this occurring by limiting lifestyle choices such as smoking, excessive alcohol and coffee consumption. For the best Dental Hygiene, we recommend a healthy balanced diet and sufficient water intake and a proper daily oral hygiene routine.

Myth 5 – Natural Teeth Whitening Works 

Viral videos of “natural teeth whitening hacks” and “how to whiten teeth naturally” will have you thinking that you can whiten your teeth using coconut oil, apple cider vinegar and acidic fruits – this is false! Not only is this a waste of time, but it can also actually damage your tooth enamel and make your teeth more sensitive. The most reliable and effective Teeth Whitening Treatment is performed by Oral Health Professionals, using safe and effective materials.

Professional Teeth Whitening Treatment Options

Professional Teeth Whitening can lighten your teeth up to 8 shades brighter. Teeth whitening can help you to achieve a healthier-looking smile, improve the appearance of stained teeth and help you to feel confident before a big event.

There are two options for Professional Teeth Whitening – In-Chair Zoom Teeth Whitening and Take-home Whitening Kits. At a Teeth Whitening Consultation, our experienced Dentist will discuss the benefits of each treatment to help determine which option will best suit your preferences and budget.
