The last ten years have brought about a wide range of teeth whitening products and options. Most people have heard that their dentist can whiten and brighten the smile, but they’re lured into the realm of OTC products that promise the moon and stars. It can be difficult to know which is the best, but with a few revealed secrets, you’ll know exactly what to do.
At Home Whiteners
The truth is that it is possible in almost every case, to get dentist-quality whitening from your home. At-home whiteners come as a brush-on gel, strips, or in trays. While some work better than others, it’s difficult to know which is which. Likewise, your particular teeth may react better or worse to one version than another.
The trouble is that it takes a lot longer to whiten your teeth at home, so you can waste a lot of money and time using something that doesn’t work before you realise your mistake. Then, you have to find something else and try it for a recommended two to three weeks, repeating the process until you find something.
Likewise, many of the whitening products you can find at retailers use glycerine, which, when mixed with the whitening agent, can lead to sensitive teeth.
What Are The Alternatives?
If none of the above points sound good to you, you’re not alone. Many consumers have resigned themselves to dingy, yellow, stained teeth, but they don’t need to. KB Village Dental offers a popular tooth whitening option called Zoom! All you need is about 45 minutes, and you’ll have teeth that are up to eight shades brighter. They use special gels and a laser to whiten the teeth, and you’ll see results in one day instead of six to eight weeks, making it an excellent alternative.
