Learn About the Best At Home Teeth Whitening Kits

When someone is finally ready to get their teeth white and bright it can be confusing of what the best options are. Between many different at-home treatment options and different products marketed saying they will brighten teeth, it can leave most people scratching their head wondering what is the best option.

In this article, we will go over some of the best at-home teeth whitening options and ‘kits’ that can be used by anyone looking to get a whiter smile. Although for anyone wanting a bright white smile, the best option is to have teeth whitening done by a dentist. However, there are some good at-home options that can help patients begin the road to whiter teeth.

Different teeth whitening systems and options

When it comes to options for Teeth Whitening there can be a lot of different products and claims to wade through. However, a few different staple items and options are typically a good place to start for someone looking to get brighter and whiter teeth.

Teeth whitening toothpaste

Of course, all kinds of toothpaste a person uses will help in removing stains and cleaning the particles away from teeth. However, some added benefits for teeth whitening can be included as well.

Toothpaste that is sold as ‘teeth whitening’ toothpaste will have some added benefits. By having some gentle polish additives and different chemical agents, a person will have additional stain removal that will result in whiter teeth. Even with teeth whitening toothpaste, it will only help in removing surface stains on the teeth. There will never be any bleach added to the toothpaste, so stains below the surface will not be removed.

Whitening strips

Another great option is teeth whitening strips. These strips are typically put on the upper and lower teeth either once or twice per day. These strips are coated in a peroxide-based whitening gel and will help in removing stains below the surface of the teeth. Results are typically seen in a few days to a few weeks and can be sustained and kept for around 2 to 4 months.

Teeth whitening rinses

Whitening rinses have also become a popular choice. Of course, like typical mouthwashes, they will help keep the breath fresh and smelling great and help in reducing the chance of plaque forming. However, with rinses that promote teeth whitening, there is the added benefit of having an ingredient such as hydrogen peroxide that will help get teeth whiter.

To see the results of whitening rinses, most makers of the rinses say that the results will be seen in around 8 to 12 weeks. Using the product consistently is very important.
