Teeth Whitening Kits

A home whitening kit contains carbamide peroxide, which is a bleach that can easily remove both surfaces as well as deep stains. But this whitening gel actually changes the natural color of your teeth. If you have coffee or tea-stained teeth, this tooth-whitening kit will help to remove those stains. You can use this tooth-whitening gel regularly, weekly or more for thirty to forty minutes.

Teeth Whitening Strips

Tooth-whitening strips will assist you in getting rid of dingy yellow and gray tooth stains. Usually, these whitening strips are narrow or virtually invisible and coated with peroxide-based whitening gel. These strips can be used for a couple of minutes daily, weekly or more. After a few days of using, you will see the ultimate result, which lasts at least a year. The result of these strips isn’t as affected as whitening kits, but it is easy to use and quite foolproof.

Natural Remedy for Teeth Whitening

Many people still prefer the traditional home-made remedy of baking soda and lemon in order to whiten their teeth. In addition, there are several foods like apples, celery, carrots, and pears that trigger much saliva, which assists in washing away food bacteria from the teeth. Chewing sugar-free gums is also a tooth-cleaning activity and triggers saliva.

Prevent Tobacco

Smoking isn’t only bad for health, but it is the worst thing when it comes to staining teeth. Tobacco leads to brown stains that penetrate the pits and grooves of teeth enamel. Stains of tobacco are tough to remove with brushing only. The longer a person smoke, the more toughen the stains become. With staining the teeth, smoking can also lead to gingivitis, bad breath, and increase the risk of several kinds of cancers.

Avoid Dark Foods

In order to maintain good oral hygiene, it is important to focus on what you consume. There are some foods that can stain your teeth. There is a famous saying by many dentists, anything which can stain your white shirt can also stain your teeth. Beverages like dark sodas, fruit juices, tea, and so on. These stains on teeth develop gradually but become more visible as you age.
