Top 5 Ways to Whiten Teeth

Shining, white teeth may leave an indelible impression and increase your confidence. We all want a whiter and brighter smile. Teeth whitening options are now more affordable and efficient than ever before thanks to advances in dental technology. This multibillion-dollar industry claims to make people happy all around the world by providing them with flawless teeth. In this article, we have gathered the top five ways to whiten teeth.

1. Use whitening toothpaste
You may get rid of surface stains by using whitening toothpaste every day. To guarantee that your toothpaste is safe to use, look for the American Dental Association (ADA) Seal of Acceptance. Brush your teeth with toothpaste every time you brush them, or at least twice a day. Some of the spots on the surface of your teeth will fade after 2-6 weeks.

Because whitening toothpaste does not penetrate below the surface of your teeth, it can't remove severe stains or discoloration. Your teeth may also feel more sensitive since whitening toothpaste often contain hydrogen peroxide or mild abrasives as their whitening components.

2. Brush your teeth with baking soda
Baking soda is one of the most popular natural tooth-whitening options. Baking soda, for example, is a moderately abrasive chemical that will remove surface stains from your teeth without injuring the enamel. Baking soda also aids in the prevention of future bacterial development.

To clean your teeth, prepare a paste of baking soda and water. Combine one teaspoon of baking soda and two tablespoons of water. Brush your teeth with this paste a few times each week for a few weeks to notice the effects.

3. Undergo a professional teeth whitening procedure
Expect 1-3 sessions of 30-60 minutes each for teeth whitening at your dentist's office. A high quantity of carbamide or hydrogen peroxide (20-43%) will be "coated" onto the teeth during each session. A polymerization light is used to activate the gel, and it is reapplied multiple times throughout the session.

Even though hydrogen peroxide can also be used, carbamide peroxide is the industry standard due to its significantly longer shelf life. Some dentists will then use a UV laser to speed up the chemical reaction and whitening process. You could also be given the option of only doing one 2-hour session, which will always involve UV light.

4. Use whitening strips or trays
Strips contain hydrogen peroxide, which penetrates through the surface of your enamel. Remove the coating off the strip and place it on your front teeth. Wrap the strips around your teeth to keep them from falling out. Before removing the strips, leave them in place for 30 minutes. Use the strips twice a day for about 2 weeks.

Trays are shaped to fit your teeth, making them more comfortable. Inside the trays, spread the bleaching ingredient, which is commonly carbamide peroxide, and press it against your teeth. Depending on the trays, you can wear them at night while sleeping or keep them in for 2-4 hours while awake. Your teeth will seem a shade or two lighter after around 3-6 weeks.

5. Try oil pulling
The practice of cleansing the mouth with coconut oil to remove dirt, bacteria, and debris is known as oil pulling. Although it is not a replacement for regular brushing and flossing, some study indicates that cleaning the mouth with specific oils may help to whiten the teeth.

There have been no reputable scientific studies demonstrating that oil pulling eliminates cavities, whitens teeth, or improves oral health and well-being. To attempt this procedure, rinse your mouth with oil for around 20 minutes after cleaning your teeth, then spit it out.
