The Ways to Bleach Teeth White
The Ways to Bleach Teeth White
This is one of those things that many people do at some point in their life, but do not necessarily share it with people. I am one of those people. A person’s smile is often one of their best characteristic and therefore should be perfect (or as close to perfect as one would allow). That is why we get braces or fix cavities and hopefully brush them regularly. Well keeping them white is important. After years of eating, drinking, and god knows what else, teeth become discolored. Some are more discolored then others.
I recommend that most people,should, at least once a year, bleach teeth white. It can be done at home or in the office of a dentist. For most people, the at home kits will suffice just fine. If you have not bleached your teeth in a long time or you have severe discoloration, I would recommend going to a dentist.
The do it yourself kits are relatively easy to use. They cost anywhere from $15 to $30 at the store. Bleaching kits can come in three different ways. There is the kind that you can paint your teeth. Then there are the strips you put on your teeth and remove after 30 minutes. Finally there are the strips now that dissolve on your teeth. I have tried them all over the past few years. The least effective one is painting your teeth. It gets messy, I saw little to no difference, and it is expensive. It is possible that I bought the wrong kind, but I do not planning on using that kind again. The middle of the road one is the dissolving strips. They are convenient and not messy at all, but you have to do them twice a day and you cannot eat or drink for 30 minutes afterwards. Some people may find that to be a problem. The trays you put on your teeth for 30 minutes and remove have given me the best results so far. They tend to be relatively cheap, if you buy a generic brand, and they are simple to use. After a while it may irritate your mouth, but you only have to do it once a day.
Now if you go into a dentist’s office, you can opt for laser whitening. This is a heavy duty way of getting your teeth better looking, but you will have to pay quite a bit for this perk. Dentists also have access to higher strength bleaches, which run a bit more in price, but can work much faster. They typical length of time that a bleaching regimen runs for is about two weeks. If you want to go longer, it can last about a month. After that, give your teeth a rest. The only downsides that I have ever had when bleaching teeth is occasional tooth sensitivity. Some people I know get that, other do not. If that’s the case, stop using the product for a bit, resume, and if it returns I would either try another method or talk to your dentist. I hope this helps you bleach teeth white!
