Facts About Teeth Whitening


If you found yourself looking at the mirror, staring at your teeth after brushing and flossing it a couple of times, almost glaring at the stubborn stain on it, then you must be thinking about teeth whitening.

Furthermore, if your confidence decreases, unable to speak in front of people or just even your colleagues and friends, thinking that they might be staring at your teeth instead of listening to your speech, I tell you, it is not the end yet. Cosmetic dentistry is very rampant nowadays. People having problems with their teeth, hoping to improve their smiles were on gears inquiring their dentists.

            Let us first accept that it is our fault why are teeth were not white just like in the old days. Yet we try to keep our teeth healthy, sometimes we do things that are bad for our teeth. There were three examples:

We don’t floss every night

After a very tiring day, sometimes we forget to floss every night. What most of us were doing is we just let ourselves overcome by laziness and sooner or later we will find ourselves laying in our be with our clothes still on. Meanwhile, we should try our best not to let 24 hrs pass without flossing.

 We love sweets

When we were still young, our parents give us treats and those treats are sweet. Candies and chocolates made friends with our teeth. However, now that we are already grown-ups, we should keep in mind to minimize taking sweets. If we can’t help, just do not forget to brush teeth afterward.

We love teeth-staining drinks

If you are not informed, coffee, wine, and tea were the main drinks that stain our teeth. When taking them, we should have extra time to keep them clean.  Through brushing and flossing are critical for removing the plaque and other residues that would otherwise lead to stained teeth.


After knowing the things that are bad to your teeth, here were TOP 10 INTERESTING FACTS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT TEETH WHITENING:

  1. Your teeth have pores

Like our skin, our teeth have pores too. They’re like sponges. I hope you can imagine the stain of the food you’ve just eaten being absorbed by your teeth. Over time, the color of your teeth will change and might get darker especially if you are not actively removing them.

Wine, coffee, dark berries, and smoking are extremely active in staining teeth.  Teeth whitening gel that is properly formulated works by absorbing into your teeth and gently pushing stains out through the pores.

  1. Teeth whitening does not damage your teeth.

Any kind of abuse to your teeth can be really damaging. Like for example, aggressively brushing your teeth. However, if used as instructed, professional teeth whitening is incredibly safe. The whitening process uses active ingredients to temporarily open pores in your teeth and lift stains. After each whitening session, your teeth naturally remineralize and rehydrate.

  1. The key to teeth whitening is the delivery device.

Most teeth whitening products on the market use similar active ingredients to whiten. The difference is the device that is used to hold the whitening agent on the tooth. A truly custom-fitted whitening tray ensures that every angle of every tooth (regardless of whether your teeth are straight or not) receives even and consistent coverage. Unlike boil & bit trays, whitening strips, and UV lights, fitted whitening trays eliminate the possibility of inconsistencies and allow you to maintain your beautiful smile.

  1. Custom-fitted whitening trays were very costly from a dentist.

Dentists in the US charge $500+ for custom-fitted trays. You pay this hefty fee because they are doctors and their chair time is valuable. Operating a lab, doing the handwork, and scheduling multiple appointments costs the dentist time and money. SMYLab is a professional dental lab, professional teeth whitening clinic. We deliver 3x-5x faster and save customers more than 70% off the traditional cost of teeth whitening here in the Philippines.

  1. Sensitivity after teeth whitening is normal.

More than 60% of Filipinos have naturally sensitive teeth. This is most often caused by genetics, thin enamel, or crack/damaged teeth. During the whitening process, it is completely normal for sensitivity to occur. The teeth become temporarily dehydrated which reduces their ability to insulate the nerve from changes in temperature. Sensitivity will disappear 12-36 hours after whitening. Dentists and hygienists recommend a post-whitening fluoride treatment to nourish the teeth and promote rehydration.

  1. Laser or UV light teeth whitening is temporary.

Ultra-violet (UV) light is a frequency of light that works by accelerating the whitening gel to act faster. This process is FDA regulated and only offered under dentist supervision. Although it does whiten very quickly, it is not an option for people with sensitive teeth.

  1. Stains on teeth cannot be removed overnight.

Yes. It is not like your money that evaporates very quickly. To tell you honestly, no product from the market can whiten in a few minutes or a day. Chemically, it is impossible for any whitening agent to safely penetrate deep enough into the teeth at that speed. The truth is that the whitening process can take as few as 4 days and up to several months. Customers with severe stains must be patient with the process and know that each whitening session removes years of stains. Once those stains are gone, it is incredibly easy to maintain.

  1. Caps and veneers cannot be whitened

When artificial caps and veneers are installed, they are created to match the color of your surrounding teeth. The material is created a darker (or lighter) color and can never be changed. Caps and veneers will neither whiten nor stain. Teeth whitening will not damage dental work.

  1. The best time to whiten your teeth is just before bed

At night,  the pores in your teeth are slightly more open and can more easily allow stains in. Dentist professionals recommend teeth whitening before bed as it reduces the opportunity for staining and gives your teeth the night to begin rehydrating and remineralizing.

  1. Not everyone’s teeth can be perfectly white

Regardless of your stains, the natural color (and genetic makeup) of an individual’s teeth are set at birth. The only thing a whitening product can do is remove all the stains that have accumulated over time. Unfortunately, most dentists will not tell you this nor will they give you any kind of refund if it doesn’t work. SMYLab assures money-back guarantee which gives everyone the opportunity to try professional teeth whitening. You’ll never know just how white your teeth can be until you try. We want to provide the world with that opportunity.
