How White Is TOO White? - Smile360 Teeth Whitening

How White Is TOO White?

Picture this: you're scrolling through Instagram, and you come across a photo of a Hollywood celebrity with a bright, gleaming smile.

You can't help but feel a pang of envy and wonder, "Why can't my teeth be that white?" It's a common feeling among many of us, but the truth is, the optimal level of tooth whiteness varies among individuals. Comparing yourself to the artificially white teeth of celebrities can lead you down a dangerous path of over-bleaching, causing enamel erosion and increased sensitivity.

So, how white should your teeth be?

The answer is simple - aim for a natural level of whiteness. Anything beyond that can cause more harm than good. Many people make the mistake of trying to achieve Hollywood-level whiteness, but in reality, everyone has a different level of natural whiteness. Trying to go above and beyond this natural level can lead to negative effects such as enamel erosion, super sensitivity, and sharp pains.

It's understandable to want to achieve a brighter, more radiant smile, but the risks associated with over-bleaching far outweigh the benefits. The reality is that you can overdo it and make your teeth unnaturally white, even beyond what they should naturally be. This is something you have to be careful of when doing any whitening procedure, whether it's using store-bought products or undergoing surgery.

Now, you might be thinking, "But what about all those positive reviews I see online for over-the-counter whitening products?" Well, the truth is that many of these reviews are written by people who are secretly affiliated with the company they're reviewing. In other words, they get paid if you buy the product through their link. So, it's crucial to be cautious of anyone's opinion when reading online reviews.

So, how can you achieve naturally whiter teeth without risking enamel erosion and sensitivity?

  • Cutting out coloured beverages - like coffee, alcohol, wine, and sports drinks can also help to preserve the natural colour of your teeth.
  • Using a non-bleach alternative, like Smile360 Teeth Whitening Products!

Smile360 Teeth Whitening is a proudly Canadian brand of Teeth Whitening Products that offers top-quality cosmetic teeth whitening treatments using our unique European-style non-peroxide whitening gel. Our non-peroxide formula is designed to prevent sensitivity with little to no tooth sensitivity or gum irritation. Our clients enjoy instant, dramatic, long-lasting results of 2-6 shades brighter and whiter with each treatment.

If you do decide to have a whitening treatment done, it's best to choose a professional who is transparent about what their products are made of. However, it's still essential to limit yourself to doing this for big events or milestones if using peroxide based products, rather than making it a routine practice.

In conclusion, the key to achieving a naturally white smile is to embrace your unique level of natural whiteness and avoid over-whitening. Remedies, such as  eliminating coloured beverages, and incorporating Smile360 products offer the best balance of effectiveness, affordability, and oral health benefits.

Remember, a healthy smile is a happy smile!
