    I think it's a great idea, especially if you have discoloration in your teeth. I've always had white teeth, but I tried it. My teeth were very sensitive, but only for about 24 hours. I didn't even finish the last "pass" because it really did hurt at the time I was getting it done. (take a pain killer before you go, just to numb yourself a bit ;) My friend had it done as well, and hers had a more dramatic effect since she is a smoker and had more discoloration. It can have an amazing result. I would highly recommend it. Get past the first 24 hours and you'll be happy you did it. As for the damage to your teeth, it's not like you will do it over and over again. Even one time will help you bring a whiter shade. It took years of abuse to discolor your teeth, but you can start with a clean slate and you'll look much better. I have not noticed any (permanent) increased sensitivity since I did it.

    Often teeth whitening can lead to teeth sensitivity. After I whitened my teeth, my teeth had severe sensitivity to anything I'd drink. It took nearly two days before this pain subsided. It was pretty awful. Now years later my dentist tells me the whitening damaged the enamel on my teeth and I still experience sensitivity on occastion to cold and acidic foods. I'd recommend doing it in short intervals if you do an at home kit like Crest white strips. The longer you keep them on the more damage it can cause but some people don't experience any side effects, so it's best to start slow. If you have a dentist whiten them, you might check with them to see if these are the same side effects their patients experience. Good luck to a whiter smile.

    Yes there can be side effects from bleaching your teeth. Extreme sensitivity and far worse if you become a bleach addict! For the most part you should be safe.

    You want to be careful. Store bought bleaches can make your teeth brittle, and they can become easily broken. However, having a dentist bleach your teeth would be the safer route.

    Bleached teeth look stunning, but you may want to keep in mind-

    As you get older, your teeth will become weak. As you become really old, they will shrivel away.

    The bleach is harsh on your teeth, and deducts so many years of strength from the enamel.

    Its a perfect idea, specially u will feel more confidence. But side effect r.... they make ur teeth weak and thin. and persistent bleaching makes them transparent... which can have a crack in the later age. but for one time... yes u can go for it.

    I am not too sure but I think that when your teeth get bleached they become sensitive to cold and hot food.....But I am not too sure...I would recommend calling a dentist office that does it and ask them....They should be able to tell you...

    If you have really sensitive teeth, it hurts for awhile after. Also, if you are a cola, tea or coffee drinker your teeth will get stained again.

    But it does look fabulous. Beauty comes with pain.

    in line with possibility you pick an english class first before you hassle approximately your tooth? yet to respond to your question tooth could have a yellow tint with the aid of organic shade of the tooth. additionally in case you drink espresso, tea, wine, or something that has the skill to stain over the years will make substantive variations in shade on your tooth. in case you do no longer brush adequate, floss, or look after your mouth this could reason discoloration to boot.
