Disclosure: I received a free teeth whitening kit in exchange for my honest review and this giveaway. All opinions in my review are 100% my own.
The tooth is composed of 2 outer layers that surround the pulp which is the chamber that inhabits the nerves.
The outer most layer is called the enamel, which is a clear and hard coating that protects the tooth from extreme temperatures and impact. The enamel is porous which means substances can seep through and stain the inner second layer known as the dentin.
The dentin is a soft bone like tissue that rest on top of the pulp. Everyone’s dentin has a slightly different shade of white, off white, or in rare cases yellow. The color of our dentin cannot be altered from teeth whitening.
When some consumers report that a teeth whitening product had no effect on the color of their teeth it’s usually because that person has an off white or yellowish colored dentin. As long as the bleaching agent was either carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide it will remove all stains over time.
Is tooth whitening safe?
Yes, generally speaking teeth whitening is safe. The only real danger would be to ingest large amounts of the gel, however in order to do so you would need to be using 5X the recommended amount of gel during one application (and I promise you, it tastes horrible and you are not going to be wanting to taste any of it, none the less snack on it!)
Many customers ask questions such as “will it damage my enamel?” or “can it cause cancer?” Rest assured neither are true.
66% of all users experience tooth sensitivity to some degree. For some it will be very mild and for others it will be unbearable.
Tobacco, nicotine, and other severe stains:
It’s important to note that if there are stains on your teeth, our product will absolutely remove them. Some stains are more difficult than others.
The average person who wears their trays for 3 hours a day or sleeps with them over night will have removed all the stains from their teeth after 5-7 applications. However more severe conditions such as teeth with tobacco stains, nicotine stains, or dental fluorosis may require as many as 20-30 applications.
