While the internet has made things easier it doesn’t mean you should always comply. In other words if you are finding yourself attracted to DIY dentistry avoid it at all costs.
Avoid it because according to AV Dental Associates Jersey City joining the craze could cause issues with your teeth and gums. In fact, some DIY online treatments can actually permanently harm your jawbone.
DIY Dentistry isn’t Always Bad
While DIY tooth whitening from your local pharmacy isn’t a bad choice for bleaching teeth the online variety can be. It can be because some vendors sell prescription strength whiteners. This can cause harm if not monitored by a doctor. Another reason DIY dentistry is a bad idea.
Because the one size fits all trays they sell for DIY whitening kits aren’t made to fit, product seepage nearly always happens. If that occurs there is a high probability your gums will pay the price.
The price paid for prescription strength whitening products includes white gums and chalky teeth. Some have even reported see through and a blue looking smile after using DIY prescription strength whitening kits.
The takeaway from all of this is just don’t do it. If you want prescription whitening products schedule an appointment with your Jersey City cosmetic dentist.
Dr. Arash Vahid will lighten your teeth the professional way so that you won’t have to worry about damage to your teeth and/or gums.
While over the counter whiteners are okay if approved by your dentist, some DIY products, such as dental bonding are certainly not.
DIY Dental Bonding a Big No No
Dental Associates of Jersey City explains that dental bonding must be applied by a dentist. You want a dentist who has the training and education to safely apply and seal prescription strength dental materials.
If you try to bond a tooth or teeth yourself, you run the risk of sealing in bacteria and food particles. If that happens an infection or abscess is likely to occur.
The best way to avoid a DIY dental bonding nightmare is to schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Vahid and his team. In some rare cases bonding isn’t the best solution. This makes DIY even more dangerous.
Professional Cosmetic Dentistry
The best way to avoid a potential disaster is to always see your dentist for cosmetic or restorative repairs. Doing so prevents something more serious from happening.
