Teeth Whitening: What You Need To Know

For a society obsessed with aesthetics, having a good set of teeth is very important. However, many people are struggling with teeth discoloration occurred as a combination of eating habits, poor lifestyle, and genetics. Luckily, discolored teeth are not the end; there are various options available to whiten your teeth. In this blog, we will take a look at the teeth whitening procedure and its various options.

How Long Can You Retain The Sheen After A Teeth Whitening Procedure?

Teeth whitening treatments are never permanent solutions. And if you don't take good care of your teeth through proper oral hygiene, the effects can wear off in as little as a month. In cases where people often eat foods and drink beverages that stain the teeth, the effects can wear off even sooner. On the other hand, for those who are moderate with their staining beverage or food consumption, the effects can last as long as a year.

Different Types of Teeth Whitening Products You Can Use

There are many teeth whitening products that you can avail of in the market. Let's take a look at some of them:

  • Whitening toothpaste

Generally, toothpaste provides some form of whitening, but there are special kinds of toothpaste that are manufactured specifically to offer additional whitening. They come loaded with chemicals that remove stains better. These special kinds of toothpastes can whiten teeth by at least two or three shades.

  • Over-the-counter strips and gels

Strips and gels whitening products that you can buy from pharmacies. Strips are hydrogen peroxide-based gels you stick on the surface of your teeth for the prescribed amount of time to get a whitened effect. Gels, on the other hand, are clear peroxide semi-liquids you apply with a small brush on top of the teeth.

  • Whitening rinses

Whitening rinses work the same way as normal mouth rinses in freshening your breath. However, whitening rinses contain additional ingredients like hydrogen peroxide, which whitens teeth. Usually, they take at least 12 to 14 weeks of continued use to show their effect.

  • In-office whitening

Dentists  offer in-office whitening services which can give you bright teeth in just over an hour.

Teeth whitening is a great solution for people who are conscious of their teeth and their self-image that they are willing to work at making their teeth and other parts of their outward appearance look the best they could be.
