The Chemical Process Behind Teeth Whiteners

We would all like to have a smile like Julia Roberts has, and luckily there are numerous different kinds of teeth whiteners available on the market not to mention that the dentists promote their teeth whiteners every time you are in the chair.

The different whiteners for teeth come in the shape of mouthwashes, chewing gum, toothpaste, bleaches, polishes and different kinds of procedures. Every person could try using different kinds of teeth whiteners, but the results that they end up are varying and it is also difficult to predict the color that they are going to end up with.

teeth-whitenersAs an example there is the whitener for teethknown as Crest White Strips that you can find at just any drugstore for about $34. People who have tried it say that because of gum sensitivity they have to stop using the product for a day or two.

After finishing the treatment some of the users saw little change in the color of their teeth.

The spokesperson of the company producing these teeth whiteners said that the individualresults may vary among the users, but millions of customers have used the products with visible results. The manufacturer promises a change of six shades.

There has been another product tried out, called Go Smile. This whitener for teeth is more expensive than the previous one, it costs $90 and you have to paint the whitening solution on your teeth. Some of the consumers have been disappointed by the product because it didn’t deliver the promised results. One of the main problems was that the gel can be easily washed off.

The advantage of the other teeth whiteners is that they come with a tray that stays pressed against your teeth. Nonetheless we shouldn’t judge a product based on the experience of a small number of people.

There has also been tried an expensive whitener for the teeth that is being used by the dentists. The cost could vary between $300 and $600. Also some of the dentists want you to buy the trays that cost just about the same amount of money. The people who have tried this method say that they saw some change in the color of their teeth so they are pleased with the results.

We should also remember that the results of the teeth whiteners fade back. This refers to the darkening that occurs due to drinking red wine, smoking or drinking coffee. In case you have been using whitener for your teeth, you also have to maintain the results that you have achieved.

How do the teeth whiteners work?

The majority of these kinds of products contain carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide that is able to remove the stains from the teeth so that they become less visible. The level of whitening depends on thestrength of the whitening agent; it is not the same if you get your teeth whitened at a dentist or you use an over-the-counter product. Also remember that the heavily stained teeth will show less whitening.
