Making your own tooth whitener? BEWARE!

Published on May 1, 2013 by

You may have seen a lot of pinterest posts about home tooth whitening.  These may look very appealing and inexpensive, but be careful.  Some use large amounts of baking soda, which at that quantity can be VERY abrasive when you brush it on the teeth.  some also contain lemon juice, which is more acidic than battery acid!  So while you may achieve bright shiney teeth, the longterm damage to the enamel may wind you in the dental chair, undergoing expensive treatments to repair them.  So before you make your own, speak with your dental professionals about safe ways to get a gleaming, healthy smile for years to come 🙂
