Bleaching - Experiences and Risks?

Question by Guest | 27/08/2012 at 14:49

Somehow, lately, I no longer liked my teeth as they are. They look dull and not particularly white. Now, one hears repeatedly from this bleaching, which is to make the tooth shiny and brilliant white again. Apparently, today, nearly every dentist is providing this service.

However, I do not know, whether that's a good idea, because, possibly, the teeth are only suffering unnecessarily with this treatment. Has anyone experience with whitening or know of any risks or disadvantages associated with bleaching?

With such issues, I would go in any case to the dental surgeons to get a long and intensive advice about all things that can happen and are to be noticed. In my experience, it is also worthwhile, to go to two or three different dentists, as some have little experience or idea of such specialized areas. Of course, you have always to decide for yourself, what risk you want to go.

In any case, go for your bleaching to a professional dental clinic, that is specialized on it and has the necessary experience. Never try to do it at home and never go to one of these beauty clinics with their dubious discount offers. Sure, the doctors and dentists at the professional dental clinic can advise you best.

I have let myself bleached and I am very happy with it. I was also at a doctor, who had the necessary experience and all went well.

After the bleaching, the teeth were some days a little more sensitive than usual, so here you have to care especially with very hot or very cold foods. After about a week, however, it was - at least for me - everything like before.

Over the long term consequences, of course, I do not know anything - but who wants to be beautiful, have to suffer.

The upper layers of the enamel are removed when bleaching. You can never get those back! So, be careful and think about what you want! In addition, the teeth will become generally more sensitive! Some things, the nature has established, you should better not intervene!

Another little tip: If you have caries, you should abstain from bleaching. I had tooth decay, when I wanted to bleach me and my dentist has advised me against doing it. My dentist said, that it can cause the tooth to be completely inflamed and sometimes the tooth even can fall out. Then maybe something less white teeth.

Also pregnant women and women, who are breastfeeding, should not just go bleaching. It can always happen, that some substances from the bleaching are swallowed and you should not do that to your child!

That is all, I want to say.

I would stay away from bleaching. I do it for myself and I have to say, that you can not stop, once you have started it. The enamel is actually getting attacked by the bleaching, you can do what you want.

And why should you not have a bit of yellow paint on the teeth? That looks much more natural than this extremely white and artificial teeth. And who knows, what there are for late effects! People are not bleaching for a long time, so far, so you can not know it.

Never do it at home for yourself, even if there are appropriate tutorials on the Internet and they say, that it's really easy! I tried it and then had pain for days, because my gums had become infected. For me, there is therefore no next time, but if I would do it again, I would go to a real dentist.
