One way of having a great picture for your social media platform is flashing your big pearly whites. If you’re not happy with your smile because your teeth are not sparkling nor are they pearly white like how you want them to. You are not alone according to a study 90% of orthodontic patients requested whiter teeth too.
Teeth whitening or bleaching is the most cost-effective way of making your teeth appear whiter instantly. You should consult with your dentist or teeth whitening professional before starting any process. Here are some ways to put the shine back in your smile.
Your Teeth Whiting Options
Stain Removal Toothpaste
Basically, all toothpaste remove surface stains because they contain mild abrasives that scrub the teeth when you brush. You should look for a whitening toothpaste that has the ADA Seal of Acceptance for stain removal on the package. These types of toothpaste have additional polishing agents that are more effective at stain removal and are safe for your teeth.
Over-the-Counter Bleaching Products
Looking for products in your grocery store, pharmacy or online you will find a variety of options such as teething whitening strips, pens or gums. The concentration of the bleaching agent in these products is lower than what your dentist or cosmetologist would use in the office. If you are considering an over-the-counter bleaching kit make sure you purchase one with the ADA Seal of Acceptance.
Professional At-HomeTeeth Whitening Kits
Your dentist can provide you with a custom-made tray for your at-home whitening. You will be given instructions on how to place the bleaching solution in the tray and for what length of time. You may feel more comfortable whitening in your own home at a slower pace, but still with the guidance of a dentist. This option can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks or months.
An in-office whitening procedure uses a powerful bleaching solution to whiten your teeth. During a session, a specialist will first make a record the current shade of your teeth. Then your teeth will be polished with a grainy material called pumice to get rid of any surface plaque. The specialist will apply either a protective gel to your gums or cover it with a rubber shield. The bleaching solution is then applied to the teeth. Some whitening solutions require a laser to activate the peroxide to begin bleaching the teeth. This procedure takes 30 minutes to an hour
Teeth Whitening Laser Treatments
One of the best teeth whitening techniques is laser treatments. This procedure uses a strong bleaching gel that is activated by the laser which gives you quick and dramatic results. Because there is a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide in the gel solution and the use of laser light, your eyes, gums, and cheeks are all protected during the session.
