The Best Way to Whiten Teeth

Thursday, 30 Sep 2010 04:58 PM


The most professional and safest way of getting your teeth to appear brighter and whiter is by using professional whitening gel. Most dentists use specially calibrated in-house bleaching teeth creams that can do the job in half an hour.

The teeth whitening gel comes in special syringes along with stock dental trays to be placed inside the mouth. If a dentist thinks custom tooth trays are required, they would be prepared and used, with the whitening gel filled inside, to brighten the teeth. The most recent technique uses special lights to make the bleaching more effective. The entire process may take anywhere from half an hour to one hour and several sittings to whiten teeth completely. Most doctors will also send home a teeth whitening gel that will continue the bleaching process at night when one sleeps. They will also provide you with custom teeth trays that will hold the whitening gel close to the teeth for effective teeth bleaching.

There are several other teeth whitening gels, creams, and strips that are available in the market. For example:

·
Teeth whitening toothpastes are one of the most popular options present on the market, which have to be used according to the instructions provided. Please note that though almost all of these toothpastes are abrasive in nature, only two or three grades of lightening are observed. An oscillating toothbrush with this toothpaste will produce the best results.

·
Mouthwashes for teeth whitening are really popular, but they don’t really work all that well. Only superficial stains are removed due to the mild bleaching action, and the stains will recur over time.

·
Home teeth whitening procedures include trays that come in packs. These over-the-counter products have to be used for 30 minutes every day for the best results. This product and most home bleaching products contain the same bleaching agents (hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide) that dentists use for in-house bleaching, but in much lower doses. As a result, the same dental whitening is achieved, but over an extended period of time. Side effects are also more common as the fit of the trays or strips is generalized and there can be leaking of the product. Gums do get irritated and inflamed and patients may complain of sensitivity to hot and cold.

·
Teeth whitening strips contain the same bleaching agent in a lower strength. Bleaching strips or teeth whitening tips can wrap around teeth and stay in place for half an hour to create the same effect as trays. The strips may slip which decreases the effect of the bleaching.

·
Wipe on teeth whitening gels are a simple and effective solution. Simply wipe the gel onto your teeth to get the best results. Also, the gel can be applied to a single tooth, as it stays in place and deceases sensitivity. 

There are many more products on the market that can be used, but the bleaching technique and the eventual color result is very unsure. Do not overuse the product or you could wind up with severe, painful dental problems.
