Teeth Whiteting Kits

With more and more people longing for a pearly white smile, it’s no wonder teeth whitening kits are becoming increasingly popular. With a wide variety of whitening strips, gels, mouth trays, pens, and toothpastes available, there’s something to suit everyone. But before you benefit from these innovative, affordable, and effective teeth whitening treatments, there are a few points to keep in mind.

Choose wisely

If removing both surface and intrinsic stains is your goal, choose a peroxide-based whitener. Whiteners containing abrasive agents, such as toothpaste, work to remove surface stains on the teeth only. Home whitening kits contain up to just ten percent peroxide in comparison with professional peroxide treatments which are highly concentrated. If home treatments don’t contain enough whitening product to work for you, it’s therefore likely that a professional treatment will.

Understand the risks

Teeth whitening kits are safe, but should be used responsibly. Kits with mouth trays, however, pose the risk of leaking bleaching gel over your gums as they may not fit correctly over your teeth. You can always get a custom-made mouth tray that fits your teeth precisely from your dentist for home use.

Whitening kits will not be suitable for you if:

  • You have poor dental health
  • You have gum disease
  • You are pregnant or lactating
  • You are under 16 years old
  • You have allergies to peroxide

Consult your London Teeth Whitening Clinic dentist about which whitening kit may be suitable for you.

Follow instructions

It’s important to use your whitening kit according to the package instructions to ensure your health and safety. Although you may think the more treatments you give yourself, the better and faster the results, you will actually be in danger of over-bleaching your teeth. Misusing whitening kits can turn teeth blue, chalky and unevenly coloured. It can also result in pain, gum irritation and damage to the tooth enamel.

Consult your London Teeth Whitening Clinic dentist

Our friendly and professional team can give you information on the best teeth whitening kit that is likely to successfully lighten the shade your teeth. Your dentist’s professional opinion can be vital to getting the results you want, not to mention saving valuable time and money as you choose the right product first time round. For example, bleaching agents work best on yellow teeth, but struggle to lighten teeth with brown or grey hues.
