Join the Smile Revolution - Your Teeth Whitening

In the early 1990's peroxide-based teeth whitening products gained popularity. The trend began with custom-made treatments of bleaching trays that were available in dentist offices. When products became available for all budgets the smile revolution began. Today you can find teeth whitening treatments in stores and on the internet. Many products are pre-mixed while others require mixing at home. While whiteners that are dispensed by dentists prove to be more successful, home treatments provide satisfactory results.

 

For an at-home teeth whitening product to be effective it needs to be used regularly. Dentists recommend that these products be used every four to six months. People with tetracycline-affected or very dark-stained teeth may need to use the product for up to a year to achieve the best results.

 

Teeth whitening products are available in paint-on, strips or trays. You can whiten any time of the day you prefer. These products go with you when you travel or even to the office. They are as easy to use as brushing or flossing your teeth. The cost ranges from $4 to $100 for at-home treatments compared to an average of $400 when dispensed by a dentist. In office treatments cost on average $650 per session.

 

Care should be taken with these products. If used incorrectly you can harm your tooth enamel and irritate your gums. Uneven or chalky whiteness may result with incorrect use. You can prevent these issues from occurring if you have a dentist supervise your treatments. Your dentist can also recommend the best product for you.
