Interesting Facts on Whitening from the ADA. Please read!!
Popular Science (12/31, Draxler) reports that teeth whitening “has become an $11 billion-plus national obsession,” and the market is “expected to grow another $44 million by 2019.” Popular Science reports that the safety and effectiveness of these products “depends on the treatment—and your teeth,” and that “genetics, hygiene, and past dental work can all play a part.” Popular Science points out that “moderation is key,” as “people have been known to become...obsessed with their whitening results.” The article warns that extreme whitening “can wear down enamel to dangerous levels,” making teeth more sensitive and exposing dentin, “which could, ironically, make the teeth appear yellower.” Popular Science also says “don’t get your teeth whitened at a mall kiosk, in a spa, or on a cruise ship,” and that those who want their teeth whitened should check with a dentist first and report any adverse effects. The report also points out that the American Dental Association has a list of whitening toothpastes that have earned the “ADA Seal of Acceptance” for safety and effectiveness. The ADA provides more information on teeth whitening at MouthHealthy.org and provides considerations for patients and dentists.
