Can I Brush My Teeth White Again?

Have you been staring at your toothbrush and formulating a plan to get your smile nice and white again? Have you decided that you’re just going to make the most of your brushing by changing out the products you use, choosing things that come with promises to brighten your dental tissue, or by brushing harder? We understand your desire for teeth whitening. However, we think you should know: Your brush won’t do it. Cosmetic care will. Find out more!

“Whitening” Products

Perhaps you read online that mixing lemon with baking soda and brushing your teeth with it might help your smile look whiter. This “natural” teeth whitening remedy may help a tiny bit. However, it isn’t going to reveal shocking results. It is, however, going to harm your enamel. Scrubbing it and using acids on it will cause damage. Think stuff from the store will work better because it’s formulated to whiten? Whitening toothpaste and DIY options will either be too weak or damaging (or both).

Your Toothbrush

If you think that harder brushing will make a difference, it will not. What you will succeed in doing is hurting your teeth and possibly your gums. You’ll need cosmetic care from us if you want teeth whitening that works. Once you brighten your smile safely this way (and effectively), you can then use your brush for the twice daily care we suggest to keep teeth beautifully white.

How To Begin

First, just keep brushing as we suggest. Use fluoridated toothpaste that is free of anything abrasive, so you don’t hurt your smile. Then, call us up. Tell us that you’re interested in teeth whitening and would like to come in with us to talk about it. Easy!
