Our society today is obsessed with white teeth. If you’re in the public eye and you have less than perfect teeth, it’s often the first thing to be pointed out. It’s no wonder that “bleachorexia” is becoming a problem as we seek to make our smiles as bright and white as possible.
Teeth are naturally off-white or slightly yellow. Celebrities with super bright white teeth usually have veneers, and while their pearly whites look fabulous, they’re unnatural.
Whitening products and procedures are readily available to people looking for a cheaper way to get the look, but when used excessively they can damage your teeth beyond repair. Over-bleaching can cause oversensitivity and receding gums, and it also erodes tooth enamel forever leaving teeth more prone to cavities. It can also cause a reverse effect where the teeth appear darker instead of lighter.
It’s a good idea to consult a dentist to make sure bleaching is right for you, but consider smiling even if your pearlies aren’t celebrity perfect.
