When you look into teeth whitening methods there are many suggestions, ranging from teeth whitening pastes to home made recipes for teeth whitening.
Though there are many methods used, it is best to take advice and treatment from a dentist. Home recipes for teeth whitening can break the teeth enamel and make teeth sensitive.
When you go to a dentist for a teeth whitening procedure, the dentists will inform you on the bleaching procedures they will implement to whiten your teeth can be whitened. Two of these procedures must be done in the dentist’s clinic while one procedure can be done by you at home: Here is a look into each of these procedures:
* Bleaching work done by the dentist begins by first placing a protective material over your gums and lips. This will protect then while the process of bleaching begins. Bleaching solution containing hydrogen peroxide is applied on the teeth and laser light is directed to the teeth to activate the bleaching agent. This treatment process goes on for about 45 minutes. This process is the best for discolored teeth. In the case of a teeth that has been subject to root canal treatment, bleaching solution is placed on the front as well as in the inside of the tooth.
* It is also possible for teeth whitening to be done at home, through bleaching solution provided by the dentist. The dentist will direct you on how to apply the bleach. A perfect impression of your teeth is taken to make a mouthpiece. You will apply bleach to your teeth with the mouthpiece fitted on to prevent your mouth from being affected by contact with bleaching chemicals. The bleaching solution provided by dentists for at-home belching is not as strong as the one used in the dentist clinic and there is also no need for a laser to active the bleaching agent in the solution. Results can take about two to three weeks.
The decision to take up teeth whitening with the dentist or doing it at home using a kit provided by the dentist depends on your choice. When you take up teeth whitening in case you feel discomfort, be sure to consult your dentist, so that you can get some alternatives on it.

Cory from Dental Heroes says
I think it’s probably a better idea to visit the dentist for tooth bleaching procedures, if possible. Dentists are certainly more experienced, and have access to stronger bleaching agents for maximum results.
yeah better to go to a dentist for a regular check up and to whitening ur teeth rather than to try out ur hand at something new.

Most of the stains and problems in teeth may be caused by tobacco, coffee, tea or age. But sometimes such type of stains can be caused by some antibiotics as well such as tetracycline or too much fluoride.

Dramatic Whitening says
I think the cost associated of professional teeth whitening can be quite an obstacle for some people. At Dramatic Whitening we always recommend regular visits to a dental hygienist along with a teeth whitening system to begin the transformation process. It’s an avenue which is dramatically cheaper, plus there are numerous companies that offer these systems which offer free trials.
