Social media users have recently been actively sharing "useful" tips on how to whiten your teeth yourself at home using baking soda, hydrogen peroxide or activated carbon. According to dentists, such methods will not only fail, but can also be harmful.
Demyanenko explained that teeth whitening is lightening and leveling the tone of tooth enamel and removing pigment from the surface layer of dentin.
"Caring for enamel involves two stages: professional whitening and home follow-up. This includes the choice of toothpaste, irrigator, brush, etc. In this case, the whitening procedure can be done only in the absence of contraindications and after consulting a doctor," said Demyanenko.
The dentist emphasized that ultrasonic cleaning can be done for those for whom whitening is contraindicated, which will also slightly improve the color of the teeth.
