According to the advertisement by many sellers about the way to whiten the teeth, using whitening strips is so easy and simple and there is no need to sharpen the teeth like doing the porcelain veneers.

As a result, the teeth get less sensitive, maximizing the restriction of the effect on the pulp and high aesthetic requirements. Teeth whitening strips are used to paste the outer part of the tooth, most of the inside of the tooth remains the same as the real tooth. If the strips are used for eating and drinking it makes almost no impact. The tooth strip covers the bad teeth, and the color-changing teeth without the need to undergo surgery.

The strip was evaluated by the people to cover the bad teeth, colore-changed teeth. It helps whiten the teeth quickly, only after more than 10 days, even faster and it is only needed to use every day for about 30-60 minutes. It is easy to use, just stick the strips on your teeth and wait for the bleach available in the strips to work on your teeth.

An oral maxillofacial specialist called Nguyen Vu Trung (in Ha Dong General Hospital) said: “Enamel is the hardest organization in the body so if you want to change the color of your teeth, you have to use chemicals, catalysts, and bleach. If you want the teeth want to be whitened themselves without the “catalyst”, there must be a very high concentration. If the concentration of the bleach is too large without results, the teeth will be badly affected when the concentration of drugs exceed the safety threshold for the teeth and gums”.

There are many different types of teeth whitening strips and by many manufacturers so, when you use it, you should monitor closely. If a high concentration is used, there may be a risk of adverse effects on the teeth. Complications can cause ulcerative gingivitis, pulp death, and long-term tooth sensitivity…

On the other hand, many whitening strips are produced and sold in a great amount in the market without being tested for safety criteria with unknown ingredients or unsafe doses. Typically, when in use of the whitening strip, the faster the whitening effect can be, the higher the concentration of hydrogen peroxide on the strip can be. This substance not only works to whiten the teeth, it is also a double-edged sword, which will make the enamel become thinner and affect dental health.

According to the dentist Nguyen Vu Trung, currently there are many methods of teeth whitening that can be done at the clinic and at home without causing pain.

Teeth whitening at the clinic is done only for about 20-30 minutes with a gum isolation medication applied to avoid the bleach can have impact on the gum. After that, they will use the light to activate the chemical during that time, the whole process of which will be directly controlled by the dentist.
For home bleaching, sample of the patient will be taken then depending on the situation of the teeth, the doctor will choose the appropriate concentration of the drug in accordance with the color of the patient’s teeth.

“It should be noted that when bleaching at home, one should follow the instructions of the doctor, strictly follow the diet such as not using colored substances such as tea, coffee, coke… At the same time, he must clean his mouth, get tartar and cure gingivitis and periodontal diseases before doing”, Dr. Nguyen Vu Trung said.
