Teeth Whitening: One of the Best Ways to Look Great and Feel Confident

Are you suffering from a bad case of yellow teeth? Well, I’ve got some good news for you. Teeth whitening is easier, cheaper, and more accessible than ever before. Recent surveys have shown that 80 percent of Americans between the ages of 18 and 49 wish that they had whiter teeth. This is why there are so many teeth whitening products available today. Let’s take a look at some of the best tooth whitening systems and how they work…

As far as professional teeth whitening systems go, Opalescence® is one of the most highly rated take-home and in-office whitening choices.

Take-Home Whitening Systems

If you’d like to take matters into your own hands, you can purchase Opalescence take-home whitening and do it yourself. Take-home whitening systems are great for those who have busy schedules or who feel nervous about trusting someone else with their whitening treatment.

The first step is to fill the provided tray with one long bead of whitening gel that should be placed about halfway up on the forward-facing part of the tray from one end to the other. This should mean that you’re using about 1/3 to 1/2 of the syringe full of whitening gel per tray. Then you insert the tray, covering your teeth completely and softly pressing to help it adjust evenly to all the sides of your teeth.

When it comes to how long to leave the tray in your mouth, it entirely depends on which concentration of Opalescence you use. When your allotted time is up, you should remove the whitening tray and brush your teeth. Finish up by rinsing your mouth out a couple of times. It’s important to remember that bleaching products are not safe to swallow, so make sure you keep the gel from being swallowed. The last thing left to do is clean out your bleaching tray and put it away for future use.

It’s such a simple process and is often much quicker as well as more effective than other whitening processes such as whitening toothpastes.

In-Office Whitening Systems

If bleaching your own teeth makes you uneasy, then in-office whitening would be the best choice for you. Opalescence is available in many dentist’s offices and is just as effective as the whitening kits you can do at home. A similar process is followed, but the end results are the same; beautiful white teeth and the appearance of perfect oral health! This is a great option for those who want to kick back, relax, and brighten their tooth enamel without lifting a finger. This would also be helpful for those who require custom trays for their tooth-whitening needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Before you go and get your teeth whitened, it’s good to learn about the specifics of how teeth whitening works, as well as the possible side effects. The gel used to remove stains and brighten your teeth is made from hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide. When it comes to side effects, the most common would be tooth sensitivity. This is often only temporary and will go away after the tooth-whitening process has been completed. If you’ve got especially sensitive teeth, then you can talk to your dentist about the best tooth-whitening options available for you.

One of the very first things people notice about a person is their smile. Make yours the best it can be and look into getting your teeth whitened with Opalescence today!
