Remember that Less Is More When Whitening Your Teeth

Whitening your teeth is a great way to improve the appearance of your smile for relatively little effort. But be sure to exercise caution when whitening your teeth; remember that less is more!


It’s always better to err on the side of caution when it comes to whitening unless you happen to have a career in modelling or television.

Exercise caution! Over-doing teeth whitening can actually have the unintended affect of making your smile less attractive.

Teeth that have been over-whitened can look weird in person. Brilliant, blindingly white teeth are just not natural looking or attractive. 

Not only that, over-whitening your teeth can lead to unexpected dental health problems. The whitening solution could soften your enamel and make your teeth feel extra sensitive. In extreme cases, over-whitening can even cause teeth to become an odd blue-grey colour.

Nonetheless, teeth whitening is very safe, and it takes a lot to over-whiten to wind up with oral health problems.

If you’re unsure about how often you should whiten your teeth, or if they’re white enough already, visit your Surrey dentist at Clover Hills Dental for a consultation!
