Buzzword: Teeth Bleachorexia “Can a person overdo it by wearing teeth whitening strips or trays too often? The American Dental Association thinks so.” [Consumer Reports Health]
Or you could just brush your teeth after breakfast and dinner.
One of my kid’s teachers definitely has this issue. Her teeth have been bleached so much that
1) they are no longer glossy (look like a ceiling painted with a flat white latex)
2) they are cracked so badly that they hold/show whatever she last ate/drank
I want to pipe up about it, mention maybe getting veneers, but what good would that do? Like someone with a body image disease/issue, mentioning it will only make her more paranoid…
Thoughts/advice on how to approach someone you know with this ‘problem’? Or just avoid altogether?
I suppose you’re right. I’ll just let it go. So long as my kid doesn’t come wondering why my teeth are so yellow compared to Ms. Clorox.
