How to Whiten Teeth at Home?

Teeth Bleaching at Home is an effective way to achieve white teeth besides over-the-counter products. You can also choose from an array of fluoride toothpastes or gels, which boast benefits such as tooth-whitening or tartar removal. If you don't want to visit a clinic regularly and subject yourself in a dentist chair, you can ask your dental expert for advice on treatments at home.

Bleaching at home

Consult your dentist first so he or she can evaluate which home whitening method is good for you based on the color and shade of your teeth. Make a model of your teeth first, create your own custom dental tray and read instructions carefully on usage. Use once or twice a day for 1 to 2 weeks. Test the sensitivity of your teeth during this time. Home whitening treatments take longer than professional whitening at a clinic but costs significantly less and readily available at supermarkets and pharmacies.
Bleaching is not recommended if you have tooth-coloured fillings, crowns, caps or bonding in your front teeth — the bleach will not change the colour of these materials. In these cases, you may want to investigate other options, like veneers or bonding.
