Whiter Teeth Aren’t Always Healthier Teeth; Here’s Why

In medieval times, long before the rise of modern dental science, people favored whiter teeth not unlike they do today. Unfortunately for them, they didn’t always know the right way to achieve a brighter smile. Back then, dentistry was considered the job of the local barber, and a popular treatment involved applying a few coats of acid to a patient’s teeth to lighten their color. While this procedure did have the desired bleaching effect, the acid also eroded the enamel, making teeth more vulnerable to injury and decay.

Fortunately, people today know more about how to take care of their teeth than they did in the medieval era, and your dentist is well-equipped to brighten, whiten, and shine your teeth without destroying them in the process. Here’s what you should know about why whiter teeth are not always healthier teeth.
