Navigating The 'Aisle Of Confusion' To Whiten Your Teeth

Walk down the aisle of your local pharmacy or grocery store and you'll be bombarded by a dizzying array of bleaching products, from gels and strips to paint-on bleach.

Cosmetic tooth bleaching is a $3.2 billion global industry, according to market analysts , and it's getting bigger fast. It's easy to see why. Strikingly white, bright smiles dominate TV and social media, and people tend to prefer the bright teeth of youth rather than those that have been yellowed by trauma or age.

But if you decide that you, too, want a brighter smile, it's hard to know where to start.

"I'm a dentist, but I'm also a consumer and I can certainly get confused by all the products," says Ruchi Sahota who practices in Fremont, Calif. A colleague of hers describes the tooth product aisle in stores as the "dental aisle of confusion," because there are so many options. "You can easily get bewildered standing there trying to figure out which option is the best," she says.

The dilemma isn't helped by regulators. Tooth whitening products don't need approval from the Food and Drug Administration before hitting the market, because the agency considers them "cosmetic," a designation that's much more lightly regulated than drugs. And, the FDA says it has not determined that any ingredients contained in currently marketed products are unsafe.

Are Crest Whitestrips bad for your teeth?

my mom said that crest strips take the enamel off your teeth and oher stuff. are they good or bad?

No, they will not damage the enamel. The agent used in them has been used in dentistry for many years now. If your teeth become sensitive you can use them every other day and brush with a sensitive tooth toothpaste. Sensitivity is generally temporary,

they r fine

They are fine, but they can make your teeth more sensitive.

Can I brush my teeth right after using Crest Whitestrips?

I am using the Professional Effects one, and I brush with a Sonicare toothbrush. Is this bad for my enamel?
Is using a Sonicare brush immediately after bad though?

Yes, you can brush right after, it'll take all the left over stickiness and residue from the strip off, because if it's left in the mouth for too long it'll start to burn and leave a "shock" like feeling making your teeth extra sensitive. It

probably is bad for you. I am not a hundred percent sure but I would not risk it. I use Crest white strips multicare and i put them on for five minutes. than take them off, spit out the saliva, and brush my teeth gently without toothpaste. than I rinse
