Your teeth can become dull and stained over time by many things. There are many ways to whiten teeth, leaving you looking younger. Everyone deserves a mouthful of bright, white and healthy teeth, and anyone can have one if they follow these easy guidelines.
If you are using teeth whitening strips and they are meant to be on for 2 hours, though your gums are starting hurting, make a switch to the strips that only need to be left for 30 minutes. It may take more time for your teeth to get eventually white, but sore gums are not a usual ‘side effect’ of teeth whitening.
The fastest whitening teeth methods are the professional products found at your dentist’s office. These only entail a few visits to the dentist, and you will have white, bright teeth. The methods that a dentist uses are different than what you can buy in stores. These methods are quicker and more effective.
Lemons and oranges are a good source of vitamin C, but they also have tooth-whitening properties. You can even use a lemon peel or an orange, all you have to do is rub the surface of your teeth against the back part, which causes them to sparkle. For better results, add a little salt to the lemon or orange peel.
It’s easy to get teeth whitening strips, and they are quite inexpensive. Each strip is placed directly on the teeth, where it works to whiten the surface of the enamel. These were big sellers for a few years, but uneven results and other side effects affected their popularity.
Your teeth may be sensitive after using whitening teeth products. This is generally a temporary effect, but it can be very painful. If you experience this, go see your dentist before using the product again. They might recommend something that won’t affect your teeth this way.
Go to a dentist for your regular cleanings in order to achieve a white smile. Keep up with these cleanings about twice a year. Always schedule your next cleaning while you are at the dentist so you can prevent the eventual procrastination that will result in a delayed cleaning. They’ll usually offer to call ahead of time to remind you about your appointment.
Despite the advertising, there is really no difference between whitening toothpastes and regular toothpastes. If a teeth whitening product makes no discernible difference when you use it, you might as well save your money. It will do little, other than make your wallet lighter.
Purchase a few strawberries to help you whiten your teeth naturally. Strawberries have been known to produce white teeth. Just slice a strawberry and try rubbing it on your teeth. You can also mash it and utilize it instead of toothpaste. To obtain best results, allow the strawberry mash or juice to remain on your teeth a few minutes. Then clean it off.
