Teeth Whitening Remedies

The best home bleaching systems use a moldable tray system that contains mouthpieces which you can actually fit to your mouth. You mold them by soaking them for a few seconds in warm water, then you press the plastic up (or down) against your teeth and gums. When the plastic cools you have a nice soft plastic mouthpiece that is fitted to the curves of your particular smile.

To make sure your teeth are "as clean as a whistle"-- and to make sure that the bleaching gel directly contacts your tooth enamel (instead of dental plaque), brush your teeth for two minutes with an oxygenating, slightly abrasive toothpaste immediately before bleaching. You should use as strong of bleaching gel as possible to ensure that the time your teeth are in contact with the whitening gel is well spent. The older gels used 16% carbamide peroxide, but the newer gels can be as high as 22% peroxide. But, it's imperative that the gel does not contain any glycerin to reduce any sensitivity the whitening gel may have on your teeth and gums. A flavored bleaching gel also helps - why not make the experience as pleasant as possible? No need for it to taste bad!

After your at-home bleaching session, it is very wise to rinse thoroughly with an oxygenating mouthwash to prolong the effect (an alcohol-based mouthwash will chemically curtail the bleaching process).

Trays with Bleaching Gels still provide the best combination of the most affordable and most efficient tooth whitening available. Since I'm a dentist, I can let you in on a few little secrets here (secrets that most dentists would shoot me for telling you since it costs them thousands in lost income!)

First, most of the bleaching gels available at your dentist are exactly the same. There is very little difference from one dentist to another, because the gels are formulated by a small number of manufacturers.

Second, most of the bleaching gels available at retail stores are of very poor quality. They've been sitting in a warehouse or on a truck for who knows how long - and, because they are designed to be "low cost" (with low cost being sometimes the only consideration), they have very low concentrations of active ingredients.

Make sure you use a bleaching gel with a concentration of at least 21% - this means a whiter result in a shorter period of time! Third, the one thing in common between dental bleaching gels and "store" gels is that they both use glycerin as a carrying agent. Now there is nothing wrong with glycerin. It is not dangerous in any way. However, when mixed with carbamide peroxide the glycerin is used to draw water out of the enamel in order to speed up the bleaching process. This is what causes the most common side effect of bleaching - sensitive teeth! (By the way, my TheraBrite formula doesn't use a glycerin base - that's just one reason why it's so unique.)
