Showing Off Your Smile
Some people have extra sensitive teeth that they need to be aware of. Using all of these tools to help the health of your mouth can be pretty abrasive and maybe too strong for some.
You can talk to your dentist and ask about what kinds of toothpastes you should be using and if there is a good sensitive type out there that would work the best for you. Sometimes the sensitivity is the result of a more serious problem that you might have including a cavity that already exists or nerve inflammation or irritation.
You can buy products that claim to whiten teeth as long as they have fluoride and other ingredients that fight plaque and tartar. But these products will probably not give you the results that you are hoping for.
Do not let advertisements lead you into believing that they have a miracle product that will change the color of your smile. If you really need to whiten your mouth a little, get it professionally done by a dentist.
