Living in North America, it is no shock that hundreds and even thousands of people all around the nation are willing to give tooth whitening a try, in hopes of gaining a whiter and brighter smile. To achieve the results you want, there are several ways to go about it. The most popular include teeth whitening kits, laser tooth whitening and bleaching.
Well to begin with, teeth whitening kits are very similar to bleaching done by dental professionals, the only difference is that it costs much less and takes up virtually none of your own time to apply it. Not only are these kits easy to use, but they can also be conveniently purchased purchased from the comfort of your home. Once you receive the kit, you just follow the instructions on the package and within two hours or so; your teeth will be sparkling. The best part about this method is the fact that a dentist does not use machinery to essentially file down your teeth until the discoloration is gone.
Laser teeth whitening is a more expensive alternative to the teeth whitening kits because the used used is significantly more expensive than a simple kit. I should however mention that those who can afford it and do not seem to have been heavily affected by the recession should go ahead and opt for this method. Laser tooth whitening does require a bit more time than the kit, but the results do last much longer. The reason for the longer repeating results is simply because the laser penetrates deeper into the enamel.
Its a sad fact that as we age our body does not look as young and as fresh as it used too, this goes for our teeth too. Our teeth will naturally discolour as we get older, made worse by years of eating and drinking sugary foods and coffee. Ironically your teeth may well be very healthy but if they are discolored they will not appear so!
So what can you do to stop the aging appearance of your teeth and get them looking white and bright again?
Trying teeth whitening kits
Teeth whitening kits have been around for some time but only during the last few years have they become really affordable and more socially acceptable. The beaming white smile, becoming popular by celebrities mostly, is seen as a good indicator of health and makes a great first impression.
Using teeth whitening kits have become safer too over the years. When the industry was new there were a few dodgy products on the market but these have notasted and have mostly disappointed.
The whitening gels used now tend to be on the conservative side and tend to consist of Carbamide peroxide. The use of Carbamide peroxide is very safe for teeth whitening and any occasional side effects are minimal. It can cause irritation if in contact with your skin and eyes, so ensure you are careful when handling Carbamide peroxide. This is true for any whitening and bleaching gels though!
How do teeth whitening kits work?
Most kits work by using a whitening gel that bleaches your tooth enamel. The bleaching agent releases oxygen which gets to work in breaking down the stains on your teeth. This is why whitening gels are very effective at removing stains on your teeth.
