Many beauty experts believe that healthy white teeth can be one of the most attractive features of a man or a woman. Some people seem to have inherited beautiful teeth, while others naturally eat plenty of produce that naturally and gently scrubs teeth clean and pearly, while simultaneously avoiding sugar to prevent decay leading to blackened teeth and cavities. For the rest of us, there are several types of teeth whitening that can make your smile gleam. We offer teeth whitening at Smile Advantage.

Whitening Toothpaste

The easiest and most cost effective way to whiten teeth is to use a whitening toothpaste. With many brands on the market to choose from, you can find preferred flavors, colors, and textures, including gels, that will clean and brighten your teeth at home with daily brushing.

Whitening Mouth Rinse

Certain types of mouthwash, sometimes called oral rinses, contain ingredients that help to remove stains from teeth and make them appear whiter. These rinses are commonly used in conjunction with whitening toothpaste for a dual approach to making teeth look their best.

Whitening Strips

Among many kinds of dental products widely available, whitening strips are among the most popular. Peeled from transparent film, they are readily attached to upper and lower teeth for about thirty minutes. Depending on the product and accompanying instructions, the strips can be used once or twice a day until the product is finished.

Homemade Remedies

Combinations of equal parts hydrogen peroxide and water represents a homemade product for whitening teeth. However, it is always best to ask your dentist before trying to create your own concoction for brightening your teeth. For example, there are different strengths or percentages of peroxide on the market, so you would need to use the right one to avoid harming your teeth.

UV Light

Ultra-violet light can be used at the dentist’s office to speed up the processing time of a whitening agent applied to the teeth. Although there may be home kits for personal use, this technique should be reserved for the dentist to use based on his or her assessment of your teeth and their sensitivity to whitening treatments.

Professional Whitening Trays

Whitening trays for teeth come in two forms, one that is used at home and another at the dental office. The home-based kit is a general application for anyone to use. However, the dental tray can be custom-made to fit your teeth for the best overall effect.

If you are interested in whitening your teeth, talk to your dentist about the most appropriate approach for your needs. If you have sensitive teeth or gum issues, the dentist may recommend using a specific whitening product or waiting until your mouth is ready for the treatment. White teeth look good on everyone.
