How to Make Your Teeth Whiter All You Can Do (1).jpg


Today, white, well-groomed teeth is a must. Luckily, modern cosmetic dentistry offers the greatest choice of teeth whitening services that ever existed. You can do it at a dentist’s cabinet or even yourself at the comfort of your own home. Let us review all the possible ways you can whiten your teeth in 2018.

As mentioned above, there exist a professional and domestic teeth whitening methods. Professional teeth whitening can only be performed in dental clinics, because it requires special equipment and a qualified specialist. Domestic methods are those you can use at home, like mouthguards with a whitening gel or bleaching strips.

Professional teeth whitening also includes several different techniques:

  1. Teeth whitening light. Performed with the help of an UV lamp. First, a special gel is applied onto your teeth and then the UV light activates it. It catalyzes a chemical reaction that provides a whitening effect. It is absolutely painless, and the effect lasts up to five years.
  2. Laser teeth whitening. The method works by the same principle – the gel is applied and activated with the help of a laser ray. The procedure doesn’t take long – 1-5 minutes for a single tooth. If you choose the laser route, be sure that you pick a good clinic, with highly qualified specialist. The procedure in a good clinic is expensive, but if the skill of the specialist is poor, there is a higher chance for enamel damage to occur. Therefore, it is better not to save money on this and choose quality and professionalism.
  3. Ultrasonic teeth whitening. It’s performed with the help of an ultrasound. This method of teeth whitening is the safest for your enamel. However, one procedure will be not enough to achieve noticeable changes. The number of procedures depends on your individual conditions.
  4. Airflow whitening. It is actually more of a cleansing technique, but it performs a whitening effect as well. Your teeth will become lighter when the plaque is blown away by the soda solution under pressure. The substance is non-toxic and completely safe.

There are also options for people who wear braces and for those who had their teeth filled and they changed their color. Moreover, domestic whitening (with the use of special mouthguards or strips) also requires visiting a dentist. Never try any recipes from the Internet without the consultation of a specialists.

It is up to you what to choose. Just remember that no matter what it will be, the supervision of your dentist is required.
