If your smile leaves something to be desired, you should consider using a teeth whitening kit. An unsightly smile can hold you back, not just personally, but professionally, too. Your teeth – or rather, the color of your teeth, can really hold you back since many people judge your personal health and well-being by how sparkling and white your teeth are. There are a number of great teeth whitening kits on the market that can work wonders on your smile. The following tips for using teeth whitening kits will help you to get the whitest, brightest smile ever, using teeth whitening kits (translated "Sbiancamento Denti" in Italian).
Teeth whitening kits that allow you to fully customize the tray are the most effective. These come with a type of tray that you simply place into hot water. The hot water softens the tray’s material so that you can stick it in your mouth and make an exact mold of your teeth.
These trays serve dual purposes. They make certain that your teeth get exposed to the whitening agent in the kit. Kits without these trays usually only make the “smile” teeth whiter, which is not the goal of whitening the teeth, right?
Since the gel holding tray molds to the shape of the teeth, it is more comfortable to use, which ensures that you will stick with the regimen until you achieve the desired result you are looking for. Moreover, teeth whitening kits that feature a custom tray that is molded to your teeth’s shape will minimize the exposure of your gums to teeth whitening ingredients. This is ideal for those users who have sensitive gums who cannot otherwise tolerate using the teeth whitening gel.
The active ingredient in the teeth whitening kit that you choose is an important consideration. One to consider is carbamide peroxide. This type of peroxide has mild stain removing properties and is specially designed to remove deep stains that you can’t remove with regular brushing alone. The way that is works is by actually penetrating the pores of the enamel on your teeth to “deep clean” the teeth and leave them sparkling white.
Following the instructions for your teeth whitening kit is imperative to experiencing positive results. Many people make the mistake of expecting too much, too soon from their teeth whitening product. Most kits work, but not instantly. It will take time to see results. If you are looking to see instant results, perhaps you would be better suited to choose a different treatment.
If your teeth are stained to the point that a carbamide peroxide teeth whitening kit isn’t enough, you may need to ask your dentist for a pure peroxide kit. These kits work more quickly and have a stronger, prescription-only peroxide ingredient that can remove even tougher stains.
All teeth whitening kits contain bleaching agents, so if you have dental work that is specifically colored to match the color of your teeth, you may find that you have a smile with two colors of teeth if you don’t use due diligence in NOT bleaching your veneers, fillings, or crowns.
Lastly, do not set your expectations too high when it comes to any type of teeth whitening kit. Age and the degree of discoloration will cause your results to be slightly less than what you had planned. If you buy a professional prescription-only teeth whitening kit, your dentist will be able to advise you best on what to expect from your efforts.
