Using The Teeth Whitening Gels To Whiten Your Teeth

If you are looking for a way to make your teeth whiter, use teeth whitening gel. In doing this, there are a few active ingredients you should know of and learn how to use it effectively.

The procedure of whitening one's teeth is known as teeth bleaching because the ingredient includes peroxide but the common one is carbamide peroxide. You can get this gel from stores or by dentists' prescription. The difference between the gel from the store and prescription gel is the strength of it and the delivery.

Teeth whitening gel from shops have lower percentage of carbamide peroxide than the prescription ones. Users will still get the same result but it will take longer time for teeth to be white. Whitening gel from shops is beneficial for people with sensitive teeth because of the lower percentage of peroxide. All they have to do is be patient with this gel in order for it to work.

You can purchase teeth whitening gel at almost any drug store. Whether you buy a kit, or a whitening toothpaste gel and other dental instruments, make sure you read the directions carefully before using the product. If whitening gel is left too long on the teeth, it can damage the enamel and make your teeth very sensitive.

A dentist can also provide you a whitening kit with gel or they can do the whitening procedure right in the office. The dentist will use the same type of gel or dental standard cleaner  that you can buy over the counter, but might have a few tools to help the process along. Sometimes a light is used to speed up the whitening process. The dentist will also consult with you first to determine the exact shade you want your teeth to be. When the dentist looks at your skin tone, he or she can determine what shade would look best for your teeth. A shade that is too white might look unnatural, so it's a good idea to listen to your dentist when he or she makes suggestions.

After your teeth have been whitened, they will usually stay that way for several months. Especially if you take extra good care of your new white teeth. Avoid drinks that stain teeth such as coffee or tea. Or brush immediately after drinking them. If you notice that your teeth have a bit of sensitivity to hot or cold drinks or food, consider brushing with toothpaste that is specifically made for sensitive teeth.
