Whitening, Polishing and Scaling?
I'm going to a dentist the day after tomorrow to have my teeth whitened with lasers and peroxide, polished and cleaned. My teeth look ok as it is, but I'd like to have an extraordinary smile. But I'm afraid for the health of my teeth! I'm only 18 and I need these teeth to last for at least some 40 more years. Could whitening damage teeth? As I don't need the whitening, should I take this risk? Also, can polishing damage my teeth? Please be brutally honest, I don't want to regret doing this
