My younger sister who is 18 years old came up with an idea of teeth whitening. She has been researching about it since she is joining her college very soon. She is planning on some DIY products but I'm worried as I have heard many negative reviews regarding bleaching at home. I don't want my sister to go through such situations. I'm thinking of taking her to Pearl Dental clinic in Burlington but her teeth are already white in color. She needs it to be whiter (like Hollywood type). Will it affect her teeth enamel? I'm not able to convince her.

If you are serious about whitening your teeth you should talk with your dentist and decide what is the best method for you. Professional teeth whitening is still the best most predictable way to bright white smile.

The best way to bleach teeth is at home using bleach in CUSTOM trays during sleep. The key is the well-fitting trays, which are fabricated by a dentist. Trays bought in the store and heated and molded at home just do not fit tightly enough to contain the bleaching gel adequately.

No, it does not affect tooth enamel long-term, but can cause sensitivity.

I have also discussed this with my dentist, but she didn't recommend doing it on my own

I think it is better to consult first with her dentist before trying any dental products. I once a victim of fake diy dental products and it cost me more money than if I should just stick with products suggested by my Kitchener Dentist.
