Find out about tooth powders that can whiten your teeth gently, with no unpleasant side effects. Also read about other whitening methods and reasons for your teeth not looking as good as they should.
Welcome to finding out all about teeth whitening powders and how they work.
Bright, healthy teeth – that is what most people want to achieve. And the appearance of one’s teeth is one of the first things people notice about you.
Making a good first impression is all about the way you look, talk and interact with a person. All this revolves around communication, confidence and a good smile.
Bad breath and stained teeth are certainly not conducive to a positive reaction from the person you are talking to.
So, this is why it is so important to have healthy, clean teeth.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular dental procedures a dentist will do in his practice.
BUT – it is a process that you can do at home successfully.
This simple procedure can greatly improve the appearance of your teeth. And give you a confidence boost too.
The trick is to find a method of whitening your teeth without damage to your enamel.
The process essentially lightens the color of the tooth by removing discoloration that has built up over a period of time.
This is done by abrasion. Gently removing unwanted surface stains and substances that whiten the surface color of the tooth enamel.
Natural ingredients and polishing agents – not harsh chemicals, are the answer.
Your lifestyle has a lot to do with the health of your teeth.
The naughty list may include the intake of fizzy drinks and other harsh foods and drinks. Smoking is a very large contributor to discoloration and staining.
Once you have whitened and brightened your teeth, it is advisable to be aware of these bad influencers.
Reduce them to maintain your newly whitened smile.
There are many home remedies that you can find on the internet and ones that have been passed down in folklore. Most of them tell you how to brighten the tooth using products you find in your cupboards.
Some may work and others may not.
It all depends on the make-up of your teeth and also how bad the staining and discoloration is.
There is also a myriad of products in the market place that all claim amazing results instantly.
We would tend to be a little wary of those claims.
Either they are using a high chemical content in their product that may be harmful to teeth and gums to achieve bleaching. Or else the sales pitch is overstating the effect of the product.
Very rarely does a good, safe result happen overnight.
You do not want to be disappointed by overstated claims. Nor do you want to end up at your dentist with issues that are going to cost a lot of money to fix.
Most teeth whitening powders are gentle and not harmful to the enamel and gums.
These powders may take a little longer than an instant result – but you will see the benefits after a short while. And you can be safe in the knowledge that your teeth and enamel are not being harmed in the process.
Powders tend to gently lift the stains and yellow marks off over several uses. You keep using it until you reach the desired effect you are happy with.
We would say … slowly but surely wins the race most of the time!
Teeth whitening is by no means a one time only fix.
Life takes its toll.
The everyday drinks and meals will, inevitably, cause the dulling of the teeth once again.
It is advisable to keep some extra stock to do whitening maintenance when you feel you need it.
We hope we have helped you on your path to brightening your pearls. Happy whitening!
