If you want whiter teeth, you probably already know that most of what you can do at home only removes surface stains. Changing the shade of your enamel requires bleaching.

And that can mean a trip to the dentist to sit in front of that mysterious blue light. It can sound like a serious undertaking, and it costs a lot more than baking soda toothpaste, so before you get into the chair and say cheese, here’s everything you need to know about bleaching your teeth.

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

From subtle changes to major repairs, your dentist can perform a variety of procedures to improve your smile. There are many techniques and options to treat teeth that are discolored, chipped, misshapen or missing. Your dentist can reshape your teeth, close spaces, restore worn or short teeth or alter the length of your teeth. Common procedures include bleaching, bonding, crowns, veneers and reshaping and contouring.

These improvements are not always just cosmetic. Many of these treatments can improve oral problems, such as your bite.

How to keep your teeth and the earth clean

Although it is certainly not a common practice among consumers, most dental practitioners suggest that you replace your toothbrush after about 3-5 months of regular use or sooner if the brush has frayed or become less effective in other ways.

If everyone followed these guidelines from an early age of using traditional toothbrushes, on average, by the time you are 21, you would have deposited roughly 80 toothbrushes per person into dead end trash cycles. Most toothbrushes are petroleum plastic based so they are not recyclable and will never biodegrade, not to mention the potential for ecological damage.
