Some DIY options can damage teeth

treat your smilePeople often look to home remedies or over-the-counter products to help improve their teeth. For the most part, these items involve making the teeth look whiter. However, it is important to consider what you are actually doing to your teeth when you rely on these types of items. Treat your smile with care.

For example, people who choose home remedies will combine things like lemon juice and baking soda. These ingredients can be effective at bleaching the teeth and making them whiter, and they also seem safe because they are natural products. However, because of the abrasiveness of the baking soda and the acidity of the lemon juice, the teeth can quickly become damaged beyond repair.

Because of the risk of damage, it is always best to rely on the aid of a dentist to get the white teeth you desire. Working with your dentist is the best way to ensure you have the best-looking smile that allows you to beam with self-confidence. A dentist will be able to keep your smile healthy while helping you to look your best.

Everyone deserves to feel beautiful when they smile. A cosmetic dentist will have the ability to create a fantastic smile safely and efficiently. From whitening to repairing gaps, you can achieve the smile of your dreams.
