Use Dental Whitening Products For A Brighter Smile

Everyone wants nice looking teeth to show when they smile or laugh. If you drink coffee, tea or smoke, one of the side effects is that your teeth can become discolored. In these instances especially, and for everyone who desires shiny teeth, dental whitening products can help achieve that aesthetic effect. For those with chemical sensitivities, you will want to choose hypo-allergenic dental health products, including tooth whitening products.

You can start small and use dental whitening products such as whitening toothpaste, or you can utilize a full teeth whitening system for a more dramatic effect. Tooth whitening products like toothpaste are inexpensive, yet when used consistently in a personal dental health program can make a difference in improving the color of your teeth. Make sure that any whitening toothpaste you choose is gentle on your tooth enamel, and will not scratch the surface of your teeth while it cleans and lightens stains.

For a more extensive effect, you might want to try teeth whitening gels. To use these dental health products, your Houston dentist will create custom bleaching trays that fit over your teeth. Into these trays you spread teeth whitening gel, and then place them on your teeth. By using the trays, you are able to cover each tooth completely in the whitening gel, so the final result is very noticeable and attractive. The trays are reusable, and you can easily fill them with whitening gel refills. This system is about as close as you can get to the type of whitening service you would receive from your Houston dentist, but it is less expensive than frequent Houston dentist office visits, because the only cost after the bleaching trays are made is for whitening gel refills.

For ease of use you might consider the use of dental health products including pre filled dental trays. These trays are disposable and very easy to use. Filled with a gel that contains hydrogen peroxide, the disposable dental trays cover your entire set of teeth, and not simply the front teeth, so that every tooth is whitened and beautiful looking when you are done. With no messy cleanup, it is very easy to follow a teeth whitening system with the pre filled trays.

Of course, no whitener will be effective if you do not undertake a regular program of effective brushing, flossing and rinsing with dental products. However, when used with regular good oral hygiene, dental whitening products can make a big, bright difference in your smile.
