The Truth About Teeth Whitening

Jun 24, 2008
Yellow teeth are not attractive. The reasons for this aren't clear. Maybe it is because there is some kind of natural preference for people that look like they are healthier. Perhaps the teeth are one of the good indicators of this. Regardless of why people prefer partners with white teeth it has to be said that a perfect set of teeth makes you more attractive to the other sex.

There is not a single Hollywood actor or actress that doesn't have a brilliantly white smile and even sports stars are employing methods to make their smiles brighter. The trend for brighter and cleaner looking trend has produced a number of different products that make it possible to improve the whiteness of your teeth from the comfort of your own home. In the past it was the case that to get brighter teeth that you would have to make an appointment to see your dentist.

It is still advisable that before you use any products that whiten your teeth that you consult your dentist. That being said there are a number of whitening toothpastes that can be brought off the counter and also a number of whitening kits that can be bought without a prescription or advice from your dentist.

Most of these whitening products can also be sourced from the internet. Many of these can be bought online at prices that work out cheaper than the prices that you find in a shop and also there are a number of products that are exclusive to the internet. These products can be delivered rapidly and often at no extra cost. Like with any shop bought product there is always a seven day no quibble returns policy - providing the product has not been tampered with. These teeth whitening kits usually contain a mouth guard that can be manipulated to fit any individual.

These kits also include extensive instruction manuals to ensure that the procedure is performed correctly. Many of these companies also offer free insurance on their products so that you can use the products with peace of mind.

Teeth whitening kits are safe. The gels that are used for teeth whitening are tested clinically and are designed to achieve maximum results without proving corrosive to the tooth enamel. This means that kits that are sold in the UK are only offered if they have been through a thorough safety test. The over the counter teeth whitening kits often work out cheaper than the service offered by the dentist and also mean that you can whiten your teeth at home.

The effectiveness of these home kits is said to be similar to the more expensive option that is done by the dentist. The gel that is found in these kits is the same as gel that is used by the dentists and has the prevailing ingredient carbamide peroxide.

Whitening kits can be used simply using a procedure that makes it possible to achieve professional results. The kit comes with two mouth guards that can be fitted to the teeth by first warming them in hot water. They can then be fitted to the mouth of the person that wants to improve the whiteness of their teeth. The person using the kit should fill two mouth guards with the whitening gel and put them in place for a set period of time. This will result in whiter teeth.
