Make smile sparkling with teeth whitening

There are plenty of different teeth whitening products on the market today, from gels and pastes to strips and trays.

But what is tooth whitening and how does it work?

What exactly is teeth whitening

There are so many teeth whitening agents available on the market today, not to mention all the home remedies one will find when doing a google search.

First, you need to understand that whiten formula toothpaste is an abrasive which can damage your tooth enamel.

You should never use an abrasive toothpaste every day.

Now, we will disk the other teeth whitening agents available.

The majority of these have a bleaching agent in them such as hydrogen peroxide (no not the stuff in the bottle in the first aid aisle) or carbamide peroxide.

How do you whiten teeth

The best way to whiten teeth is to have a professional cleaning done twice a year at your dentist office.

If you feel the need to do an at home whitening then purchase a nonabrasive method such as strips or a tray and gel.

At what frequency should you whiten teeth

Unless you are someone who drinks or eats things that stain your teeth such as coffee and other staining foods or you smoke, there is no need to whiten your teeth more than twice a year at the dentist.

If you are a smoker, drink coffee, red wine, or eat foods known to stain teeth, then you may wish to whiten once or twice in between the bi-yearly whitening done at the dentist.

Things to remember

Never use abrasive toothpaste to whiten your teeth; especially on a daily basis as it will cause damage to your tooth enamel.

If you want teeth whitening in Oshawa, speak to your dentist.
