28 October 22.

Teeth Whitening Strips are a great way to improve your smile at home. However, there are some mistakes in using whitening strips, and here are some ways to avoid them.

Use teeth whitening strips for a long time

Do not allow your strip to last longer than recommended. You might think that leaving the strips in place longer than indicated will make your teeth whiter. Not only is this wrong, but it can irritate your teeth and gums. Once the whitening gel has been used on your teeth for the required amount of time, it stops working and therefore has no advantage. It can also wear down the enamel if left out for too long.

Brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste

Use a wet toothbrush to brush your teeth before placing the white strip in place. It is acceptable to use toothpaste before placing whitening strips, but it is not absolutely necessary. Do not use fluoride toothpaste before applying whitening strips, as this can cause the whitening agent to fail.

Eat dark-colored food or drink immediately

After using the white strip, make sure you avoid certain foods and beverages for a period of time. Avoid coffee, wine, and other flavored/colored beverages for at least a few hours after use. After using the strips for a while, the pores on your teeth will still open and accept whatever you put in your mouth, so you should try to avoid eating or drinking any dark food or drink.

Contact with the gums

To whiten every part of your teeth, you may want to apply a white strip as close to your gums as possible. However, if you do this, you may damage the gums because the whitening agent in the patch can be harmful to soft tissues. Of course, having the strip touch the gum once or twice won't hurt. However, every time you use a whitening strip to cover your gums, it can damage your gums and expose you to a variety of oral health problems, such as dental caries.

Apply teeth-whitening strips unevenly

Only the area that receives the whitening agent of any teeth-whitening solution can be whitened. Therefore, if you want to whiten your teeth evenly, you should be careful about how you place the whitening strips on your teeth. If you don't cover certain areas on your teeth, the spots will stay the same with the rest over time.
