Are DIY Teeth Whitening Strips Safe?

August 15, 2020

Everyone wants a brighter smile. But what’s the best way to whiten your teeth? Lots of people are choosing to make their own whitening solutions at home. These DIY teeth whitening strips are made with ingredients that are cheap and easy to find. However, that doesn’t mean they are safe. Read on to get the facts on DIY teeth whitening strips.

What are DIY Teeth Whitening Strips?

Teeth whitening strips are usually made of small plastic sheet and a whitening agent. Most drugstores carry these whitening strips. People place the strips on the surface of their teeth for hands-free whitening. Lately, people have been creating DIY teeth whitening strips. They can be made using tin foil, plastic wrap, or other home supplies.

Are They Safe?

Since there is no one recipe for these strips, it can be hard to judge exactly how safe (or unsafe) the strips are. However, we do not recommend that you try them. Simply put, they are not the best idea. They are not a dentist-approved whitening method and can actually cause more harm than good.

Better At-Home Solutions

Instead of DIY whitening strips, people can easily purchase whitening strips at their local pharmacy. These are all made using approved ingredients. They also come with clear instructions for your safety. Whitening toothpaste and/or mouthwash is another option to try.

How to Get the Best Results

If you are serious about whitening your teeth, then it is time to see your dentist. Professional teeth whitening is by far the safest option. It also produces the best results. This treatment is quick, easy, and affordable.
