Every day you look in the mirror and wish that you had bright white teeth like other people you see around you. Perhaps you are a smoker or your teeth have become a light shade of yellow due to age and usage. Whatever the reason, you can have the same bright smile as other people thanks to teeth whitening gel. This product is easy to use and you can even apply it yourself at home so nobody has to know what you are doing. In the course of a couple of weeks, you will be able to notice the difference in the color of your teeth and it is so gradual that other people will notice there’s something different about you but they won’t be able to quite put their finger on it.
To know which teeth whitening gel to use, it is a good idea to consult with your dentist or your dental professional. Not all gels are the same and some contain more whitening ingredients than others but your dentist will be able to guide you in choosing the right product that will work for you. It is also important to make sure that your teeth are healthy and that any dental issues are resolved so that you can get optimum results from using the gel. Sometimes people can experience a little bit of sensitivity because of the amount of peroxide that is in the whitening solution. If you tend to have sensitive teeth or gums, your dentist can provide a material that is altered to make it more comfortable for you to use.
The gel to use for whitening your teeth is quite easy to use and it should come with a tray that fits over your teeth. Every night before you go to bed, you simply pour some teeth whitening gel into the tray, making sure to follow the directions exactly on the package. You place the tray over your teeth, making sure that it is snug and secure, and then you go to sleep. If you are a little concerned about the comfort level of the tray, you can have one specifically made to fit your teeth so that it does not bother you while you’re sleeping.
Dentists agree that any type of whitening product will work but some may take longer to get the same effect than others.
A teeth whitening gel that has a large percentage of peroxide in its solution is going to work a faster than one that does not because it is the peroxide that provides the bleaching for the teeth. In addition to gel you can also use strips that you place on your teeth, gum that is engineered to help whiten the teeth, toothpaste, and even a paint-on substance that you can wear during the day to improve your smile and whiten your teeth at the same time.
