Teeth bleaching, in the realm of cosmetic dentistry, reins, as both men and women look to change the color of their stained teeth. Whiter teeth are the new fad and an appealing smile can always make us look more attractive.
The term “bleaching” is used by the FDA when bleaching products like hydrogen peroxide are used to change the color of a tooth and make it whiter than its original color.
There are quite a lot of techniques used to bleach teeth that can persuade anyone to go ahead and try it, as well as many dentists and salons who offer all types of prices and services.
Take a good look in the mirror and check to see if you have stains on your teeth. Are your teeth turning yellow? If you want to give a sparkle to your teeth, then you should ask yourself: Is teeth bleaching right for you?
For those who have sensitive gums or gingivitis before making your own in home-made tooth bleaching gel or paste remind yourself that your condition may get worse and you may want to stay away from bleaching your teeth on your own. It may be better for you to see a professional who can control the amount of bleach that will be used on your particular type of gums and teeth.
On the other hand if you are ready to attempt to whiten and bleach your teeth yourself, you will need to purchase or gather from your kitchen pantry the following list of items to start your in home tooth bleaching formula.
– An clean empty jar
– A cup of water
– A bottle of hydrogen peroxide
– Two tablespoons of baking soda
– A toothbrush
– A box of Q-tips
In an empty jar put a tablespoon of water, two tablespoons of baking soda and two tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide, and using the Q-tip mix the contents so as to make a paste or gel.
With the toothbrush carefully brush the mixture onto each tooth, making sure each tooth is properly covered and then brush, without swallowing the mixture, on all your teeth.
A type of white foam will start to form. Within a couple minutes rinse your mouth with fresh water and you may want to use some mouthwash to take away the taste of the baking soda and hydrogen peroxide.
You can repeat this process twice a week and soon your teeth will begin to change from a yellow color to more of a whiter tone. The results will not be permanent and you will need to be persistent if you want to maintain your white healthy looking teeth.
