Teeth Whitening Kits
For those of us looking for a bright white smile without a lengthy (and costly) trip to the dentist’s office, choosing an at-home teeth whitening kit is an excellent alternative.
Teeth whitening kits include everything you need to strip away stains, reverse yellowing teeth and restore a dazzling smile, all from the comfort of your own home.
Many of us struggle with natural yellowing of our tooth enamel – it can be caused by the ageing process, by genetics or simply by consuming certain foods and drinks, such as coffee, tea or red wine, that can add to a build-up of stains over time.
Don’t panic, however – this can be reversed, and there are options available that will help your teeth appear shades whiter and help you to regain confidence in your smile.
How do they work?
Teeth whitening kits vary in the specific means of application, but in general terms, you’ll apply the whitening product using tooth moulds or trays, leaving it on for a specified amount of time to let it get to work.
Many kits also include a UV light, which will help boost the whitening process for a faster, brighter smile.
Although each kit will vary and it’s important to read the instructions of your kit fully to ensure best results and keep your smile safe, typically, you’ll brush and floss your teeth ahead of getting started, before applying the whitening product and leaving it to get to work for the specified time frame.
During this time, you won’t be able to eat, drink or smoke, and you’ll also use the UV light provided if this comes with your kit for extra whitening.
Some kits come with trays for your whitening product that are designed to fit any smile, whereas others will require you to have your own custom trays already.
You’ll need to repeat your treatment as often as the instructions specify for a powerful and professional-looking result. Some kits will have super speedy results, with the effects visible straightaway, whereas others may require repeated treatments before you’ll see your results.
