Everyone can benefit from a whiter smile. Whether you are young, old, single, or happily married, a whiter smile can boost your confidence, not to mention make people around you happy every time you share that killer smile.
Unfortunately, many people shrough off the idea of getting professional help to make their teeth whiter-either they think if they cost too much (which is usually the case), or they are simply embarrassed to admit to self-vanity.
First and foremost, professional teeth whitening can indeed be costly. Next, wanting to have whiter teeth is not at all bad. No one should feel embarrassed with wanting to improve physical appearance. You know what's bad though? Yellow, dark, and ugly teeth. If you are convinced you can benefit from a "white smile," there's good news.
Today, there are a handful of products that claim to make tooth whiter. From simple whitening toothpastes to full-on, 8-hour gels and even chewing gums. To be on the safe side, it would be smart to know what exactly you are getting into.
We have been speaking of professional bleaching since the start of this article. Such is what professionals might consider in-office bleaching. What that simply means is the process is done by a dentist on-location (in his / her clinic). The second type is at-home bleaching, which is the focus of this topic. At-home simply means using products approved by dentists, which most likely will have to be prescribed by them, used at the comfort of one's home. The last kind is over-the-counter bleaching. This is where toothpastes and the like fall under.
Now that you know, to have a successful at-home bleaching session, you must use only dentist-approved products. The slight downside of this is that it will be a little more expensive than over-the-counter methods. However, you are sure that you are on the safe side and that the methods you will be using are tried and proven.
