Simple Ways to Get Whiter Teeth

Teeth whitening systems can be used to help someone get a beautiful smile.  There are many different teeth whitening products available.  A better smile can usually be achieved in just a few days.  Most teeth whitening products contain peroxide.  The peroxide bleaches the outer layer of the tooth, or enamel, and makes teeth whiter.  How effective the peroxide is depends on the percentage of peroxide used in the product.  Products can contain ten, sixteen, or twenty-two percent peroxide.  Before you use a product with peroxide, you should consult your dentist for advice.

There are many different procedures and ways to get whiter teeth.  Perhaps the most effective is the in-office procedure that can only be done by a dentist in the office.  It only takes an hour to get whiter teeth.  It is expensive, but the results are excellent.  Other ways to whiten teeth are trays and gels.  These methods take longer, and you will have to wear the tray for a few hours a day for a few days.  Trays and gels are available at drugstores and also at the dentist.  Both do work to whiten teeth, but the ones from a dentist do work better.

Whitening strips are another way to perform teeth bleaching.  They can be bought at most drug stores in a kit.  These are pretty cheap in price now that they have been available for a few years.  These take longer than other methods and how effective they are depends on the percentage of peroxide.  Most only contain small amounts of peroxide.  Some types of stripes may contain other chemicals that polish the teeth as well.  Other tooth whitening products are mouthwashes, flosses, toothpastes, and gums.  These are new, so it’s unsure how effective they are in bleaching the teeth.  Consult your dentist for advice on the best product for you and how to use it.
