The fashion of tooth whitening

From the world of aesthetics and beauty it has been transmitted that white teeth are an image of health and beauty, and that is really much harder to show white teeth than yellowish teeth … Coffee, tobacco, Hygiene habits or genetics are some of the factors that make it difficult for us to wear an unblemished smile.

In this case, fashion goes with the teeth, and when talking about teeth we should talk about dentists, even if more than one does not feel like it or hear about them.

The best way to get white teeth is to perform a teeth whitening with the supervision of the dentist. Not only because they will achieve the best results, but because it is the safest method without taking risks for the health of the teeth.

Professional teeth whitening can be done in two ways:

  • In the clinic, by LED light.
  • At home, using dental splints.

If you opt for tooth whitening using LED light, the method is very simple. Basically, it consists of placing some attachments on your lips to keep your teeth clearly visible. Then the dentist applies a whitening product on them and then puts a LED light lamp in front of your teeth for about 30 minutes.

If you prefer home treatment you should know that this is going to be somewhat longer. To begin with, the dentist makes some molds of your teeth called splints. In those splints specifically designed for your teeth you should take a whitening product that the dentist gives you and place them in your denture during the time indicated by the dentist, which is generally about 2 hours for about 2-3 weeks.

In some cases you can combine the treatment with LED light and home treatment to achieve better results and further strengthen the whitening.

This procedure is painless, so you can be calm in that sense, although it is possible that you can notice a passing sensitivity that lasts no more than 1-2 days at the most.

Having said all this, it is worth clarifying some questions, since many people decide to look for a living to save the price of professional teeth whitening, which is logically a dentist treatment and is more expensive than some of the tricks that many people are willing to try for their account.

The whiteners pharmacy can help whiten to some extent, but are less potent than the dentist, when counter products that can be used without supervision. Therefore, in some cases the desired results will not be achieved. In addition to this, if you do not know if you have tartar, decay or any other problem of hygiene and dental health and you use these products you risk in the best of cases to not get any results, and in the worst to suffer enough pain …

And to finish are the homemade tricks like bicarbonate and lemon that can erode the enamel and literally destroy your teeth if you spend with them looking for whitening results that are not possible with these techniques.
