Something About The Teeth Whitening Treatment

Discolouring of teeth is a very common phenomenon. This discolouration happens primarily because of the aging process, consumption of coloured beverages like red wine, tobacco in any form, tea, coffee etc. There is little doubt that discoloured teeth can be a put off for people who you may meet for the first time. Also, shiny and white teeth are the key to a broad smile.

 
As common a phenomenon discolouring of teeth may be, there are a number of treatments available to make your teeth bright and shiny once again. Some of these are easily affordable, while others are a bit expensive. The best part about these treatments is that you can administer them yourselves. Let's take a look at some common teeth whitening treatments.
 
Bleaching Gel with Guard Trays 
 
This 'do-it-yourself' treatment is steadily growing in its popularity. All you have to do is fill the mouth trays with the bleaching gel or dental x rays  and insert them in your mouth for a stipulated amount of time. Over a period of time, your teeth will return to their original shiny white colour. However, there are some treatments which work faster than this one.
 
Whitening Strips 
 
The 'Teeth whitening strip' is another revolutionary dental care solution. You can procure them from any medical or drug store. These strips are made of plastic and get easily placed in your teeth. Traditionally, whitening strips took as much time as the guard trays. However, some of the improved ones take much lesser time. You will also come across some strips that dissolve in your mouth and do not have to be removed.
 
Whitening Pens 
 
Another popular whitening treatment, 'whitening pens' are easily available in the market. With these pens you can 'paint' the whitening solution on to your teeth. Once painted, you have to wait till the solution dries out. You don't even have to take a rinse!
 
As for home remedies, you have a couple options too. There is an old remedy of making a paste by mixing baking soda and hydrogen peroxide and brushing with that. This works fairly well, but it can be a bit rough on your gums. If you have sensitive gums, you can try using strawberry pulp if you can get some since it has a bleaching effect and is more gentle on your gums.
 
Don't discount home remedies like that, but be aware that you can also get professional whitening treatments at your local dentist. Laser whitening and the newer "light activated" teeth whitening treatments can get fairly expensive (up to $2,000), but they work extremely well and give great results that will last for a very long time.
 
If you want to try some of the whitening products or dental equipment  available on the market, you can also shop online. The Amazon online store has a large selection of products. There are also smaller companies that offer free samples and trial supplies of their products in order to build their reputation and customer base. These freebie deals are usually only for a limited time though, so if you find a product that looks good and they are offering a sample, jump on the chance while you can.
