Nowadays people are more obsessed with oral hygiene than they ever were before. Unfortunately, many of these same people live lifestyles that prevent them from having the healthiest teeth they can have. People are often rushing to get to work in the morning, not spending enough time brushing their teeth and consuming food and beverages that heavily stain their teeth, such as coffee.
Dental hygiene companies often advertise toothpaste that whitens your teeth, however these have been shown to cause damage to your tooth enamel if used too often.
Other side effects include tooth sensitivity and gum damage due to irritation of soft tissue in the mouth. In some cases the side effects caused by tooth whitening products have been irreversible.
There are many reasons to switch from commercial, store-bought products to natural teeth whiteners. Aside from the fact that store-bought products contain ingredients that are actually harmful to your oral health, natural teeth whiteners will provide a more effective clean for your teeth.
