If you don’t smile as much as you used to because you are afraid people will see your yellow teeth, you are not alone. Millions of people have turned to a quick and easy fix with teeth whitening kits. They are affordable and they work. You can also get them at almost any drug store which makes them very convenient. You can get them from the dentist office or even on some websites. When you purchase them from a website, you can often read testimonials or see before and after pictures of teeth that have been whitened.
Teeth whitening kits are fairly inexpensive. They usually cost anywhere from $20 to $100. This is a great price compared to what you would spend at the dentist for an in-office procedure. It’s also more convenient than going to do the dentist. Instead of making an appointment with the dentist and taking time out of your day to go to the dentist office, you can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home on your own time with teeth whitening kits. When you open the kit, you will see the contents typically include a mouth tray and some peroxide gel. The gel is the bleaching agent used to whiten your teeth. You put the gel on the tray and the tray in your mouth. It usually stays in your mouth anywhere from an hour to 2 hours. If it only has a small amount of the bleaching ingredient, it may even need to stay in your mouth overnight.
However, if the gel is highly concentrated, you will most likely only need to keep it in your mouth for an hour. Read the directions thoroughly and carefully to ensure you are using the kit correctly. Make sure you read all allergy information to check that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients. Because of the chemicals in the gel, teeth whitening kits can often make your teeth very sensitive to hot or cold food or drink. You might want to purchase a toothpaste made especially for sensitive teeth. This will help with teeth sensitivity. Don’t use the gel more often than prescribed, otherwise you may get your teeth too bleached causing your teeth to become an unnaturally bright shade of white.
Another advantage to using whitening kits is that they are very portable. Therefore, they can easily fit into any schedule or routine. While some people would prefer to use the kit when they first wake up, others are more inclined to do their teeth whitening before bed. Still others have learned that the best time for them is while they are at the office. You can even use teeth whitening kits when you are on vacations or business trips. They are small, simple, and easy to transport so you don’t have to worry about bringing them with you wherever you go.
The results of at home whitening can actually be quite remarkable. Due to the differences in treatment, there are kits that will work for nearly anyone. In fact, many dentists recommend that people use one of the various types of teeth bleaching products regularly so that they will be able to maintain that beautiful smile. Those who have particularly stained teeth may even choose to use their kit for an extended period of time for optimal results. These kits allow you to control the brightness of your smile so that it will get progressively whiter over time.
People often love the results of using their teeth whitening kits. If you love your white teeth, keep them that way for as long as you can buy brushing often or rinsing out your mouth immediately after drinking coffee, tea or wine. These are beverages that can easily stain your teeth over time. Your newly whitened teeth can stay that way for a long time if you take care of them.
