Stone Teeth

It has been known for a long while that using whitening strips on your teeth deteriorates your enamel causing your teeth to be exposed and sensitive to exterior stimuli.

When you lose your enamel your teeth are exposed and porous to external substances. Normally this is only cause for discomfort with hot or cold drinks and can be fixed with Sensitivity toothpaste. The toothpaste acts by covering the pores of your exposed teeth and blocking the liquid from hitting the sensitive tissue underneath.

Incredibly. If you regularly drink mineral water while also using whitening strips or just have naturally worn down enamel through drinking excess of carbonated drinks such as soda. You are actually causing yourself a rare dental condition called “Lapis Dentata”.

You are literally fossilizing your teeth.

The minerals in the water saturate your teeth inside and out and slowly but surely they will replace the dental tissue, causing your teeth to become solid. This can be very hazardous however as the minerals in many mineral waters aren’t very structural materials and thus you will have severely brittle teeth.
