Does Natural Teeth Whitening Work?

Have you seen all of the new methods for teeth whitening in magazines, social media, and TV? The methods include charcoal, oil pulling, spices, and other household products.

When the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry asked people what they’d most like to improve their smile, the most common response was whiter teeth.

Healthy smiles come in many shades, it may be tempting to think ingredients in our own kitchens could be the solution to a brighter smile. Still, just because a method is natural doesn’t mean it’s healthy. In fact, DIY whitening can do more harm than good to your teeth.

Instead of these DIY methods , choose a whitening tooth paste with the ADA seal of acceptance. The seal indicates that the toothpaste you choose is safe, effective, and will not damage your teeth.  Even better–ask your dentist if professional whitening is for you!
