Teeth Whitening at Home: Professional Method VS Home Remedies

Whitening your teeth is one of the cheapest ways of enhancing your smile. When we age, our teeth darken with stains, which is why we try to whiten our teeth in different ways. The variations between professional teeth whitening and home remedies are wide, but depending on your needs, all benefits are significant.


Professional Teeth Whitening: Opalescence Go


Opalescence provides a diverse array of products to make your smile brighter. Opalescence Teeth Whitening Systems suit all lifestyles and budgets with personalized take-home and on the go whitening choices.The Opalescence Teeth Whitening Systems are accessible only through your dentist. More durable and powerful than over-the-counter teeth whitening goods, Opalescence offers healthier, whiter smiles in as little as an hour.


With 10 percent, 15 percent, 20 percent, and 35 percent carbamide peroxide concentrations, solid, professional-strength Opalescence take-home whitening gels are available in varying strengths and concentrations to suit your needs. Opalescence take-home whitening gels will produce results after only one treatment, but in around a week, you can expect to see visible results.


Opalescence take-home whitening gel is supplied through a personalized bleaching tray that will be created by your dentist from a mouth impression. This customization is part of what makes Opalescence take-home whitening gels so effective.


Home Remedies for Teeth Whitening


With the emphasis on a healthy smile being more apparent than ever, the demand for teeth whitening items over the counter has significantly increased. Such products are easy to use and provide a cheaper alternative to in-office therapies. At home, the most common teeth whitening remedies are:


Whitening strips: The strips are readily accessible, simple to use and inexpensive. The transparent adhesive strips are applied for weeks on teeth for 30 minutes repeatedly every day. You should whiten the hue of your teeth with these strips with consistent use. In fact, these strips have a small amount of oxidizing hydrogen peroxide that deep through the teeth's enamel where stain has accumulated.


Whitening toothpastes: Such products are usually hydrogen peroxide gel with low concentration, which is mostly polished on the teeth and bleached during the night. Whitening dental pastes are readily available over the counter. These toothpastes serve as chemical polishes for the teeth instead of changing color of the teeth.


Since teeth whitening is not treated as a dental emergency and we are only open for dental emergencies amid this COVID-19 crisis, we would suggest our patients to try these in-home teeth whitening remedies until we resume our services full fledged.
