Teeth Whitening At Home

Teeth Whitening At Home

Formerly, the only way to have one teeth whitened was to visit a dentist but many people are not comfortable with the idea of visiting a dentist. Thus, they tend to postpone their appointments and ultimately forget about it. Even though people are eager to get their teeth whitened, they tend to ignore it for fear of going to the dentist. Those people who are wary of visiting the dentist for teeth whitening should go for natural teeth whitening products, which can be used easily at home.

Teeth whitening at home products were launched keeping such people in mind, and people were more than willing to go for it. These primarily catered to such people who were afraid to go the dentist and were not willing to shell out such huge sums for a teeth-whitening treatment. The cost of teeth whitening at home is comparatively less than a fraction of a visit to the dentist entails. These teeth whitening at home methods might seem conventional and outdated to some but people continue to trust in these time-tested methods and the results are equally successful today as they were once.

Some teeth whitening at home methods are still in use today.

1.     Soda bicarbonate mixed with water.

Bicarbonate soda paste is easily available in supermarket and drug stores. Many people use it to whiten their teeth. This paste is combined with water and is to be gargled on a regular basis. Constant use of this mixture results in whiter teeth.

2.     Lemon juice and salt.

A mix of lemon juice and salt, when applied regularly on the teeth helps in the removal of the yellowish tinge on teeth. The acidity of the lemon juice helps in the whitening of teeth. If used on a regular basis, the dull yellow color of the teeth is reduced to a large extent.

3.     Bay leaf and dried orange peel.

Bay leaf when combined with the dried peel of an orange helps in teeth whitening. One simply has to apply these two ingredients together and the result will be there for all to see.

4.     Inner part of orange peel.

Most of us have observed the inner white part of an orange peel. We generally discard it considering it of no use. However, many people are not aware of its teeth whitening properties. One just needs to rub this white portion on the teeth regularly to get shiny white teeth.

The above list gives an idea of some of the ways by which one can do teeth whitening at home by using natural homemade remedies. Today many laboratory made teeth whitening products are available in the market that one can use. The benefit of using these homemade remedies ensures that they do not come with any side effects. They are quite affordable too.

Most people start whitening their teeth with natural teeth whitening at home remedies.  But after a while, they see that these teeth whitening at home methods are slow.  They usually opt for teeth whitening kits purchased with carbamide peroxide whitening gels, trays, and lights. Reputable companies should be chosen for teeth whitening kits.

There are video instructions available on how to use teeth whitening kits in this article.

Using toothpaste to whiten teeth at home

whiten teeth at home

Whiten teeth at home

The main problem with the whitening toothpaste is that it doesn’t contain enough concentration of any whitening agent to make a remarkable difference in your teeth. So, the very short answer is “you can’t whiten teeth at home instantly, if you are using toothpaste”. But if you want to maintain your whiteness or if you have given yourself a long time to whiten teeth at home, toothpaste can be a solution.

Brushing teeth is a short process. No body brushes for more than 2-3 minutes. A few minutes with mild whitening elements will not be enough to drastically whiten your teeth.

However, there is another risk of  gradually tearing the surface of your tooth enamel because of the scratching of the toothbrush and paste against your teeth.  Brushing teeth will remove the surface stains of the teeth.  Deeper stains will not be removed. The main reason of the yellow teeth is these deep stains.

There are good toothpastes with ingredients to whiten teeth at home.  One good example is Colgate

Some people have been using this toothpaste to whiten teeth at home for many years.  Their main suggestion is to do a good teeth whitening session once or twice a year with an effective teeth whitening kit or with teeth whitening strips.

Once they achieve a good level of whiteness, they will keep using the toothpastes to maintain their white teeth.

Teeth Whitening Myths Busted

teeth whitening myths

Myth #1: To get satisfactory results, you have to do it at a dentist clinic.

This was in the past, all of this is over; nowadays you can get the professional teeth whitening kits in USA that can be used at home and be your own dentist! And Save your time and money!

Many dentists allow themselves to use a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide to be fast and strong. These whitening gels contain from 16% up to 35% Hydrogen Peroxide. The risk of using high concentrations is that it causes trauma to the gum, therefore dentists use specific cover before putting the gel to protect the gum. So, to get the professional whitening results, this will cost you more money and has the risk factor to get tooth sensitivity and trauma.

Monopolization of teeth whitening products was exclusively to dentists as you may think it is safer but the cost was very high. Now, you can have many options and can get the professional teeth whitening result at home the same as at the dentist’s.  Here is the one the teeth whitening myths busted.

Myth # 2: Teeth Whitening Accelerator lights are not efficient

This is not true. There are many studies proving that in use of Blue LED accelerator light actually accelerating the bleaching process. Whitening gels with Carbamide peroxide as the active ingredient  reacts with the accelerator lights and it speeds up the Oxidization process (the process of releasing oxygen). The oxidization breaks the stains.

The benefits of the blue LED lights in speeding up the process of bleaching are confirmed.  For satisfactory results, all cosmetic clinics and dentists use the LED lights, particularly when using in Carbamide peroxide whitening gels.

Old fashion lights depend on heat to accelerate the whitening or oxidization process as Plasma and UV lamps. These are old, bulky devices.  This old technology may burn the soft tissue, gum and lips. This really harms your oral cavity and may even cause ulcers and sores by UV burning.  The new technology introduced the LED type, low power consuming, Cool Teeth Whitening accelerator lights.   Portable, and efficient.

There is also a type of light that is useless in teeth whitening, this type where the handler put a colored mouth griddle to prevent the gel from escaping to the gum. These griddle or trays made from silicone or foam and although it holds the gel on the teeth, it prevents the light waves from penetrating it to the teeth so the bleaching process doesn’t go faster and no result achieved.  To benefit from the light, your trays need to be transparent.

LED light is the most safe and efficient teeth whitening accelerator light. It’s called (the cool light) as it causes no heating to the mouth and may also called (Blue LED light) as it use blue light. It’s professionally used in the blue spectrum at a particular wave length that catalyzes the releasing of oxygen and helps to accelerate the chemical bleaching reaction.

And now one more of the teeth whitening myths is busted.

Myth #3 : There is no difference between teeth whitening gels

Of course there are many difference. To learn about the difference, let’s look into 2 main types of whitening gels, one based on hydrogen peroxide and other based on Carbamide peroxide. Eventually both gives the same bleaching result, but Carbamide peroxide is slower than hydrogen peroxide and reacts to the accelerator LED special light to accelerate the bleaching process. Lower concentration carbamide peroxide gels can be left on for longer.

Hydrogen peroxide is more professional and fast bleaching agent that reacts once they get in contact with the teeth.  Therefore, Hydrogen Peroxide is expensive as it contains 2/3 more active ingredient than Carbamide peroxide and also doesn’t react with the accelerator light.Hydrogen peroxide is not suggested for home teeth whitening kits.

On top of these, there are also non peroxide gels.

There is one of the many teeth whitening myths is busted with no real effort.

Teeth whitening myths continues…

Myth #4: Teeth whitening products are not safe

No, it is just one of many teeth whitening myths ! The history of using oxidizing elements in teeth whitening goes back 100 years ago.  Most of the dental organizations all over the world approved that teeth bleaching is safe for the human body.  These products should use wisely and you will find instructions to follow in all well known professional teeth bleaching products.

There are 2 main points that make the tooth whitening product safe or not. First, the duration of exposure may harm the gum, lips and oral cavity. Second,  people suffer from tooth sensitivity. These issues can be avoided if you pay attention to the teeth whitening kit you purchased and the instructions.  Detailed instructions can be found in the instructions pages.

Most of cosmetic operations that we all do have a risk factor, but the tooth whitening gels have the minimal risk.

Myth #5: All teeth whitening gels damage teeth enamel

This is not entirely true, if you use a trusted teeth whitening product.  It will not ruin your teeth, as those products essentially have active ingredients called Carbamide or Hydrogen Peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is a bleaching agent that enters in a chemical reaction and converted to water and oxygen and of course these elements are very usual in our life and essential to the human body.

The nature of teeth under microscope is rough with small projections on the surface. Oxygen molecules penetrate the surface of the teeth and expel all the stained spots. It’s very similar to what you see in TV shows where oxygen in the cloth washing powder removes all the stains from clothes once it touches the stains.

Some of the other the teeth whitening gels used at home contain ammonia or depend on the acid for bleaching the teeth. In fact, most of the teeth whitening at home remedies depend on the acid in some fruits or vegetables.  The carbamide peroxide teeth whitening depends on the cleaning effect of the oxygen.

The acid-based bleachers may ruin your enamel.  Harmless orange and lemon juices are very acidic (low PH levels) and this acid will harm the enamel.  On the other hand, carbamide peroxide teeth whitening gels based have  neutral PH or very slightly low PH levels.  Carbamide peroxide based teeth whitening gels will not harm your enamel if used properly.
