The White Stuff - Dentist vs. Do-It-Yourself Whitening

Just because you have the tools to do something yourself, doesn't always mean you should. Things can go wrong, and they do. You probably know - or have seen - someone who has had an unfortunate interlude with boxed hair coloring. They look more like they lost a bet rather than made an innocent attempt at covering the gray. And, if you're not careful, self-whitening can leave you looking like you've woken on the wrong side of a bet, too.

There's far more to teeth whitening than just a timer and gel. If not done properly, there can be pain and permanent discoloration - and you can't grow back your teeth in two weeks like a lemon shark. But your dentist has the expertise and professional-grade products to ensure your whitening is pain-free with a smile as smooth and bright as new porcelain.

So, what can go wrong when taking on whitening yourself?
