Having perfect smile has become obsession for many people around the globe. Nothing is too good or too expensive in order to get that big smile with incredibly white teeth. Cosmetic dentists have their hands full, especially with the people getting married and wanting to shine on that special day.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Cosmetic dentistry is the best option, because he/she is able to check the condition of your teeth and suggest the solution which will work best for you. Always make sure that your dentist is registered before the start of any procedure or even consultation. Zoom whitening is the most popular procedure these days. After just one visit to the dentist and zoom procedure, you can expect significantly whiter teeth. Some patients even reported teeth 10 shades lighter than they were before.
Home Teeth Whitening Kits
Of course, you can always try some teeth whitening kits, available on the market, so you won’t spend so much money on your teeth. Be very careful about these products and use them only with your dentist’s supervision, in order to prevent any potential damage to the teeth. There are some whitening strips with added bleaching agent. People who tried these say they work, and that some great results can be achieved after just 2 weeks or regular appliance of these strips.
Home Remedies for Whiter Teeth
There are several things you might want to try to get rid of the stains or yellowing on your teeth.
First of all quit smoking, because it won’t get you either stain-free or white teeth. Avoid carbonated drinks, tea and coffee or try to wash your mouth every time you drink these. When drinking something sweet or acidic use a straw, to protect and keep your teeth whiter. Whitening toothpastes usually contain abrasive agents and bleaching substances, but they are proved to work.
You can make your own toothpaste, using baking soda and adding some diluted hydrogen peroxide. This mixture should whiten your teeth effectively, since the peroxide is the bleaching agent. Don’t swallow this mixture while washing your teeth.
Even some home salt, mixed with little bit of lemon juice can make your teeth look whiter.
You may also use orange or lemon peel to whiten the teeth. Use the white side of the peel, add some salt if you want to and brush it against your teeth. Sometimes, the salt may irritate your gums. If they start to swell or bleed, avoid the salt and use only the peel.
Some say that apple cider vinegar brushed on the teeth every night may make the teeth whiter and shiner. Avoid this solution if you are (or become) allergic to it.
