Types of Teeth Whitening Procedures
Teeth whitening is a process of lightening or changing the
color of your teeth. A few of the options are listed below
in case you wish to undergo a teeth whitening procedure-
– Teeth Whitening Toothpastes: These toothpastes help
lighten the color of your teeth by about a shade or two.
Such toothpastes contain chemical agents that gently polish
the enamel and remove stains.
These toothpastes can be purchased over-the counter from
your local drug store or they can be ordered online.
– Teeth Whitening Strips: These are thin invisible strips
that are covered with a teeth whitening gel. Use strips for
about a fortnight and you will be able to see the
difference that these peroxide-based strips make on the
color of your teeth.
The results should last approximately for four months or so
and it will set you back by more than $10 and less than
– Teeth Whitening Gels: Apply these gels with a brush
directly to your teeth twice daily for about a fortnight.
The effects of these clear peroxide-based gels last for
about 4 odd months and it might cost you about $15 – $20.
– Teeth Whitening by a Dentist: Dentists use different
types of tray-based procedures in which they apply a light
to the gel on your teeth.
This improves the teeth color between three and eight
shades. This approach is the most effective out of the
approaches listed above.
This also removes stubborn stains deep in the tooth and can
cost almost $800
