Bleaching is good, but don't do it too often!!!

Teeth whitening procedures are currently among the most requested cosmetic dental procedures. There are the expensive treatments you can have done at the dentist's office, and there are the over the counter kits that you can purchase at drug stores and department stores. Bleaching isn't necessarily bad for your teeth, but as with almost anything these days, you can overdo it. Many people have the mentality that more is better, but not in this case!! Bleaching too often can result in irritation to the gums, sensitivity to hot and cold, and it can actually alter the natural color of your teeth and cause a bluish hue....much the same way that bleaching overprocessed gray hair to white can result in blue hair! Nobody wants blue teeth! So follow the directions of your dental provider when bleaching and never exceed the recommended treatment on the over-the counter kits. Unless of course, blue is your color and you would dare to be different!

Here is a link to a good article about bleaching.

This is a good blog! The reason behind the "blue teeth" isn't necessarily "over processing". As a bleaching specialist in my previous practice, I often instructed patients on the the hazards of over-bleaching. The most common side effect of over-bleaching is the clearing of the incisal edges of the front teeth. When light hits the transparent edges of the teeth, the darkness of the back of your mouth intercepts the light giving a dark or blue tint to the edges of the teeth! Just thought you might like that tid bit of info! :)
