A charming smile cannot be compared with anything. A person immediately disposes of himself in communication. It is rare for the whiteness of the teeth to be a genetic predetermination. More often the teeth are several shades darker than white. Smoking, drinking tea or coffee exacerbates the situation.
Advances in medicine make teeth whitening procedures possible both in the dental clinic and at home. Let's look at this problem.
In the clinic, lightening is carried out with products with a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide - from 35%. Depending on the desired degree of whiteness, they are applied layer by layer to the cleaned teeth. The number of applications is individual and depends on many factors.
Special teeth whitening strips are used at home.
These are flexible and lightweight polymer sheets with a layer of active ingredient gel. A composition based on hydrogen peroxide H2O2 is used as an activator. This compound penetrates the tooth enamel and breaks down the darkening pigments.
In contrast to dental procedures in the clinic, the strips contain a lower percentage of peroxide - of 10% and more, which allows this method of enamel cleaning to be used over a long period of time.
Modern preparations do not contain peroxide in their native form, but in the composition of urea - hydroperite. This reduces the negative effects of peroxide on tooth enamel. Fluorine halogen compounds are used as "assistants" in enamel restoration, ie when carbamide peroxide interacts, the pigments that determine the color of the enamel are destroyed and the oxidative effect of peroxide is compensated for by fluorine.
Almost every series of the tooth strips presented above has a separate set for sensitive teeth. This is due to the gentle effects of carbamide peroxide on tooth enamel.
Owners of these types of teeth should be careful while whitening and consult a dentist about the adequacy of such procedures.
Before the start of the course, a hygienic treatment of the teeth must be carried out in the clinic. This is not brushing your teeth with toothpaste or removing food debris with floss. The dentist examines the oral cavity, the condition of the gums, removes tartar and plaque.
If there is extensive tooth decay or fillings, you should check their condition. If you are prone to severe tooth decay, the whitening process should not be done as it can damage and thin the tooth enamel. After the cleaning procedures, the doctor recommends or prohibits the procedure.
If you carry out the whitening without consulting a dentist, you can aggravate diseases of the teeth and gums and cause irreparable damage. Without cleaning your teeth from tartar and plaque, the whitening effect may not be achieved.
Gradual teeth whitening with strips:
As with any drug of a medicinal nature, it is advisable to acquire this tool in dentistry. In this case, the dentist will advise and select individual bleaching strips. Products of this range can also be sold in special pharmacies.
You can buy products on the manufacturer's website. Care must be taken not to end up with a duplicate site that duplicates the real site. There is always a link to the manufacturer's website on the packaging of the drug.
Never buy funds that are clearly undervalued. High quality whitening strips can't be cheap. If you see such an offer, it is most likely a fake.
For most users with healthy, strong teeth and gums, strips will help restore the whiteness of the teeth or make them a few shades lighter. This procedure is simple, does not require any knowledge, and is performed anytime.
Doctors are positive about these procedures, subject to preliminary testing and control of the bleaching process. In the case of contraindications, it is better not to do this procedure.
Despite the aesthetic effect of bleaching, the complex procedure is contraindicated:
