Teeth Whitening Tips to Keep Your Smile Bright
How do Santa Clarita white teeth stay white? No matter where you live, it takes good dental hygiene including proper brushing of teeth after each meal, plus regular checkups and teeth cleaning by your dentist, at least twice a year.
WebMD’s teeth whitening safety tips recommend starting with a professional teeth cleaning by a dentist. That may be enough to make teeth shine their brightest.
But regular professional cleaning still may not be enough to get rid of all dental stains and discoloration.
Today, people have teeth cleaning options they didn’t have just a generation ago, when sodium bicarbonate — baking soda — was still about the only alternative to seeing a dentist for whiter teeth. Now, dentists and retail stores offer a growing variety of teeth whitening and teeth bleaching procedures and products.
The American Dental Association notes that teeth whitening or teeth bleaching is one of the most conservative and cost-effective dental treatments to brighten a person’s smile.
Santa Clarita white teeth company Whitening Lightening is a local innovator in this industry, with safe, effective, all-natural products.
How do White Teeth Become Discolored?
WebMD identifies several causes, including food and beverages, tobacco use (smoking and chewing), poor dental hygiene, disease, medications and more.
In cases of bad habits or neglect, a change in lifestyle will help keep teeth a brighter shade of white.
If discolored teeth persist after lifestyle changes, professional cleaning or applying teeth whitening products, the condition may be a side effect from a medication, or another health issue that requires medical treatment.
For people with discolored teeth due to taking antibiotics like tetracycline, Whitening Lightening offers natural products that can help remove surface stains. That alone can safely help improve the way the teeth look.
In all cases, people should choose consider their lifestyle, health, tooth sensitivity and discoloration type when choosing a teeth whitening product or method.
Teeth Whitening Products: Bleaching Agents and Whitening Toothpastes
The American Dental Association categorizes teeth whitening products into two major groups: bleaching agents containing peroxide and whitening toothpastes.
Many bleaching products contain carbamide peroxide, which can remove both deep and surface stains from teeth, but may cause tooth or gum irritation for people with sensitive teeth.
While regular toothpastes can remove only surface stains on teeth, whitening toothpastes use bleaching chemicals and/or polishing granules to remove deeper stains.
Consumers will get varied results using teeth whiteners depending on a variety of factors, including the type of stain, the person’s age, how concentrated the bleaching agent used is, and how long and how often the product is used. The results of teeth bleaching can last anywhere from a few months to two years.
