It is quite possible that you may have a change occurring to the mucous membrane of your cheek that may have potentially harmful long term effects. Constant thickening of the inner skin, that can be scrapped away is not a good sign. It is possible that you might be chewing your cheek, or you may have some other condition which a dentist will be able to identify.
Now to your question, â€œwhat is the best way to completely whiten my teeth and fix them that is not too expensive?â€ well you canâ€™t beat a good dental cleaning
to start, and then you have to know that the more you erode the enamel
off your teeth, and lemons will do that, the more the yellower internal layer of the tooth shows through. Such teeth can still be whitened using the carbamide peroxide
agents that dentists use to lighten teeth, and you did say you had been doing that for years, so there is a chance hat you will have some sensitivity from the process. A lot of dentists will offer tooth whitening at a discount price to induce a patient to come in for other treatment. You should be careful of this option, for they commonly will cut the corners on the bleaching process and may try to charge you a lot more for the additional bleaching trays for home touch up. Be careful of this.
If you are concerned about cost, and i would be, i would hold back on dental veneers until you have tried cleaning and whitening. Often times a few chipped or badly worn teeth can be made to appear much more attractive by simply being re-contoured. This is an inexpensive and often highly effective alternative. I hate to quote fees in an open forum like this, but i think you should be able to get tooth whitening for less than $500. You can get more information about this on my web site: http://www.Drneilmcleod.Com/
but first of all get a good check up.
I hope this helps!
