It is a common conception that having bright white gleaming teeth looks healthy and attractive. The business of selling home teeth whitening kits to the public is a multi-million dollar industry and many companies now offer their own range of products in regular stores.
The predominant and most popular types of whitening kits either come in a gel or a toothpaste form. The latter, the toothpaste style ranges are used just as a normal toothpaste would be.
Although they are the cheapest option available, they have not been found to be as effective as a proper teeth whitening kits but have shown that some work very well to remove stains and discoloration from teeth.
Teeth whitening kits are so very easily available in drug stores and malls that anybody can now have the access to use them, not only people who can afford private dentistry. Prices range hugely from a few dollars to a few hundred. To use the kits, a specially shaped gum shield that fits neatly over your teeth is firstly filled with the whitening agent and then left over the teeth for sometimes half an hour and sometimes much longer.
There have been a few known side effects for some people who have used teeth whitening kits too much. By submitting your teeth to such high levels of abrasive agents frequently, the natural color of the teeth may shine brighter, but the teeth enamel can become weaker and thus, more painful to cold and heat.
Because of the high levels of hydrogen peroxide in the products that dentists used, they are generally more effective and provide quicker results. However, the cost will be much higher but depending on your budget and how fast you wish to see your smile improve, will depend on which option you go for.
