Teeth Bleaching

Have you ever seen someone on TV with a beautiful, engaging smile selling a product or service? If so, how do you think he got such an attractive smile? In all probability, his winsome smile may have come from some form of teeth bleaching, which can be done both in the professional setting and in the domestic setting.

Teeth bleaching is a simple process that uses peroxide as its main ingredient. When it's applied to enamel, the first layer of the tooth, it penetrates into the dentin, the second layer of the tooth, and bleaches the dentin. Typically, after using peroxide, teeth whiten four to five shades.

If you decide to use teeth bleaching, you can choose either the professional way or the domestic way. For the professional way, you can go to a dentist and ask him to bleach your teeth. This bleaching process may cost you anywhere from $600 - $700, but it is more permanent than the homemade option. Further, when a dentist bleaches your teeth, it almost guarantees that the process will be done correctly. This may save you from doing it incorrectly yourself. While you can bleach your teeth at the dentist's office, you can also bleach your teeth in your own home. Several home bleaching procedures include having bleaching solutions in a mouth-guard, using whitening strips, teeth whitening pastes, and paint-on whitening gel. Also, if you wish, you can try more natural products such as olive oil, apple cider vinegar, or dental paste containing ash wood to whiten your teeth.
