More on Teeth Whitening Products It seems, these days that a great deal of emphasis and focus is being placed on having brilliant white teeth. Celebrities smile with such dazzling white teeth you wonder how the photographers and cameramen deal with the glare from their teeth! With all of the teeth whitening products on the market today, having beautiful white teeth is not out of reach for the common everyday person. These products are available in many varieties, such as whitening toothpaste, strips and gels, whitening mouth rinses, tray-based systems and a variety of treatments and restoration procedures available at your dental office. Many of the over the counter products, as well as some used by dentists, employ the use of carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide to lighten and brighten teeth. The application process for these products varies as does the period of time before the best results are achieved. In all cases of dental office whitening procedures and products as well as the over the counter products, they do not last forever. Repeat applications are necessary especially if you continue to eat and drink the things that caused the stains initially. Causes of teeth staining The basic causes of teeth staining begin with some of the foods and drinks you consume. Things like coffee, tea, wine and some fruits and veggies contribute to the stain deposits on your teeth. Other things like smoking, chewing tobacco products, some antibiotics, and excessive fluoride in the water, oral fluoride supplements and genetics also help the staining process along. You can, of course, change your eating habits to prevent further staining and this will have to be a consideration in getting the most “mileage” out of your chosen teeth whitening product. Maintaining your beautiful, bright smile The effect of your whitening attempts doesn’t last forever. In fact, if you continue to expose your newly brightened teeth to the same foods and drinks that initially caused the staining, you will begin to see your bright smile begin to fade in as little as a month. If you are able to refrain from those foods and drinks, then you may be able to maintain your smile for many months, perhaps a year or longer, before requiring a touchup or repeat application of your chosen teeth whitening product. While the options for brightening your smile are many, both in the over the counter variety as well as the in dental office variety, the key to keeping your beautiful white teeth will be in your hands. There are most likely, things you were doing or eating or drinking that contributed to the accumulation of dental staining over many years of your life. If you continue to practice the same habits after whitening your teeth, you will find yourself repeating the process more often…causing time and money to have been spent in vain. To get the most out of your teeth whitening products, be mindful of the causative factors of dental staining. keywords: teeth whitening products, peroxide, white teeth
