Do you wince when you see your smile in the mirror? Is your smile marred by stains or, has your formerly white smile turned yellow? Do you still notice these problems even after a professional clean from your friendly, local dentist? Well, don’t worry because there is some good news-you can now do plenty of things to whiten your smile right at home. There are many options when it comes to teeth whitening products and it can be difficult choosing the right one, so, today, we will discuss the best and most affordable teeth whitening products.
Consumersearch.com ranks Aquafresh white trays among the top ten products for whitening your teeth. This tray is pre-loaded with a whitening formula that you put into your mouth and place over your teeth. It’s important to leave the tray in place for at least 30 minutes and preferably up to 45 minutes. Of course this is meant to be done once per day. You should be ready for a bit of drooling and overall disgusting messiness. One other problem, apart from the mess is that these trays have been said to cause slight injury to the inside of the mouth and the solution is rough on the gums. If you have a smaller mouth you might have an easier time using one of the popular “whitening strip” products that are out there.
Are you familiar with the concept of hydrogen peroxide as a healing mouthwash? Well, first of all, let me point out that the correct solution is found in the brown bottles and not in the white or clear bottles. You’ll find it in the same aisle as your toothpastes and tooth brushes. To use it, simply mix equal parts of hydrogen peroxide and water and gargle it in your mouth. It will destroy bacteria and combat cavities. You can also dip a toothbrush into the mixture and then brush your teeth. Voila! Successful whitening. Just be careful not to swallow any of the mixture.
Rinse out your mouth completely after each use. Even though hydrogen peroxide is wonderful when it is used to get your teeth white and clean your mouth, it is very harmful if swallowed.
A popular brand of whitening product is called the Idol White teeth whitening system – you can find out ore about this product on the official website but I highly recommend it. Used as a whitening agent it’s fairly inexpensive, but used as a toothpaste it’s not. Depending on where you shop you might find it for less than 20 bucks a tube. There are a lot of people who will try this particular brand in their endeavors for a whiter smile but, it has been available for a while now and is widely trusted.
Using strips and gels can give you faster results but this is a more stable way to achieve success. In fact, it is one of the healthiest options for whitening your smile.
There are so many options available to whiten your teeth even if you can’t afford professional treatments you can still find a viable solution. There are many varieties of toothpastes, gels and trays. but, hopefully this short article has given you some idea of the best ones for you. Of course, as with all medical matters, ask the guidance of your dentist. He will help you figure out the best course of action for your teeth but the good news is that it’s no secret – these simple products work and you can have the smile you want in no time.
