What is whiterexia: the new disorder that is trending and affects many people

Social networks, advertising and new beauty standards set an unattainable bar regarding the aesthetic aspirations that a person can have. In cases, being exposed to these for too long can lead to an incessant search for perfection that is linked to an erroneous perception of oneself.

An aesthetic issue that exemplifies the aforementioned is whiterexia, a colloquial term that refers to people who become obsessed with having teeth increasingly whiter.

In their aspiration to achieve a perfect smile, people are not satisfied with the results of dental treatments or with the recommendations of professionals. Some try to achieve even deeper shades of white on their own, putting their oral health at risk by using home remedies or products recommended by third parties.

“Subjecting teeth to excessive whitening agents can cause damage to the enamel, dentin and pulp, and could even result in nerve necrosis, infection or tooth loss,” warns Dr. Natalia Rosero, dentist and director of the Odonto Palermo clinic.
