The Perfect Teeth Whitener System

Updated on September 16, 2009

Having a beautiful, white smile is a great asset for anybody, and finding the best teeth whitener to help you achieve that is something that many people are after these days. If you're confused about which way to turn when it comes to teeth whitening products, this article will be of great assistance to you.

First of all, you need to realize that there are two "basic" choices for you to make when it comes to natural teeth whitening; in-house (meaning at home), or in office (meaning, in the dental office). Whichever way you decide to go you can rest assured that it will take you less time than it did only a decade ago, and you'll get much better results. You also will not have to spend as much money. We'll take a quick look at the costs and the basic technology behind what's being used for the best teeth whitener products today. While no teeth whitener is going to work in a single application or last forever, you will have a better understanding of what your choices are.

Let's first consider the "in office" teeth whitener processes. Compared to what was available back in the 90s, you're in a much better position today to get what you want. For example, the dentist used to have to take a cast or mold of your teeth and send them to the lab, which would take a while (and of course cost you money), before even starting a teeth whitening program for you. When you did come back to the office you had to sit in the dentist chair for sometimes two hours or more for treatment. Not only was this inconvenient but it was also expensive. It was not uncommon for teeth whitening prices to be upwards of $1000 for these professional teeth whitening methods.

Fortunately for all of us, things have gotten much better. The time needed to get a professional tooth whitening is less, and so is the cost. This is even good for dentists as it allows them to see more patients. And with more and more people looking for the perfect professional teeth whitening service, this is a win-win situation. The process now involves a combination of applying teeth whitening gel while simultaneously exposing the teeth to light (laser or argon). These latest teeth whitening methods greatly speed up the whole process.

If you're looking at doing some kind of at home teeth whitening, there are numerous teeth whitening kits available to you. On the upper end these can cost as much as $500-$800 for teeth whitening kits that have the American Dental Association seal of approval. The other hand, there are over-the-counter teeth whitening kits that begin at about $25 as well as different natural teeth whitening solutions that could cost even less than that. If you do a search for teeth whitening methods on the Internet, you'll probably find all sorts of home remedies and concoctions that may work for you.

One of the most recent variations on the whole teeth whitener product list is a kind of powder that you can use anywhere at any time. You simply put a little in your mouth and it promises to give exceptional results. This is very attractive concept because is very portable and is easy to use on a consistent basis. How well it works, this author can't say. Certainly is worthy of further investigation. If you choose to go this route, it is recommended that you do your own due diligence.

Bright Smile :o)

The good news is that which ever route you choose to go for your teeth whitening products, teeth whitening methods continue to improve. Current research suggests that these various teeth whitening methods - from teeth whitening gel, to at-home teeth whitening kits and other teeth whitening products - is effective for about 80% of people who try them. One thing to keep in mind though, is that it takes repeated use because none of these methods permanent. The yellowing of teeth and the need for teeth whitener comes from many organic day-to-day exposures of things such as coffee, tea, certain foods and of course smoking for those of you who smoke.

So there you have it. Whether you choose to go the route of the professional dentists' teeth whitener efforts or to get your teeth whitening products for home application, as long as you follow procedure, there's a very good chance that you will see good results. Having a beautiful bright smile is achievable. Just remember,  you will need to use the teeth whitener of your choice, or additional teeth whitening products, on a consistent basis to maintain that brilliant, bright white smile.
