Creating a Perfect Smile. Filed under Tooth Whitening Tips & Tricks
Many people want their teeth to be white and nice. However, simple means are not enough to make your smile a Hollywood one. Still, you should not get upset because there are many methods that can be used in order to make your teeth look whiter.
Dental whitening is a very simple procedure but depending on the method you choose, it has its own advantages and disadvantages. Let`s have a closer look at the most popular methods of dental whitening.
Professional dental whitening is now available in every dental clinic. Such treatment is considered to be effective and lasting. However, it is rather expensive (300 - 500$). Those who can afford such treatment will surely enjoy the result.
Whitening Mouthwashes and Toothpastes
Another popular method of dental whitening includes using different mouthwashes and toothpastes. They are less effective than professional treatment but the result can be seen in no time.
Keep in mind that whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes are more effective on light or medium stains. The price of whitening toothpastes or mouthwashes is never too high, so many people use it to prevent or cope with light stains on teeth.
Nowadays most drug stores and supermarkets offer a variety of whitening strips. Depending on the quality of such product the prices may vary. Consumers claim that more expensive whitening strips work almost as well as professional dental whitening while less expensive are still rather good if used from time to time. Whitening stripes can cause hypersensitivity of teeth. Moreover, careless application can result in visible whiter stripes on teeth.
If you are not ready to spend lots of money on dental whitening, you can try using brush-on treatments. The average price of such kit is about 3$ (for 2 weeks). Despite the temptingly low price, such gels can cause bad breath in the morning. In addition, whitening gels can be difficult to apply.
Things to Keep in Mind
We have mentioned some of the most popular methods of dental whitening. However, you can make them work even better if you give up smoking and reduce the amount of coffee, tea and soda you consume. These substances are known to cause stains and can spoil the result of the most effective method of dental whitening.
Nowadays a white smile is a must-have of every successful person. The choice of dental whitening method is completely up to you, but keep in mind that healthy eating habits and regular visits to your dentist are as important as professional treatment.
