  1. Questions about why/why not to use whitening toothpaste

    1) Is it true that whitening toothpaste can eat away at the glue that's used to bond the braces to your teeth?

    2) It's said that if you use whitening toothpaste with braces and have your braces taken off it will leave stains or blotches. If whitening toothpaste can whiten your teeth with braces on, why can't it whiten the stains and blotches from the spots that the braces were covering? Isn't it logical that those spots will catch up with the rest of your teeth?

    It depends on the kind of whitening toothpaste you'll gonna use, there are some whitening toothpaste that has a strong concentration on their ingredients. To be more sure about the whitening toothpaste you'll gonna use ask your dentist on what toothpaste would be better to use.

    I think you are completely missinformed regarding this topic.
    The reason why you should not use any bleaching materials while you are on orthodontic treament is:
    Due to inevitable poor oral hygiene while you are on braces your enamel is weaker. This is why it is recommended to get a whitening treatment at least 2 months after you remove your braces.
