If you have visited the toothpaste aisle at the grocery store, you have probably noticed dozens of products that claim to whiten your teeth. In this post from Rotem Dental Care in Toms River, we take a look at their effectiveness.
Whitening rinses are similar to mouthwashes. They kill bacteria, freshen breath and may help remove plaque. Whitening rinses, however, contain tooth-whitening ingredients not found in mouthwashes. To use, swoosh a mouthful around in your mouth once a day. Though this method is simple, many users never notice a lightening of their teeth. This is probably because the rinse does not touch your teeth long enough to truly whiten them.
These have a couple of drawbacks. Though they contain a bleaching agent, it is much less potent than professional strength. Another trouble is that they do not whiten between teeth because the strips only touch the front surface. Though it is possible to remove stains, it can take months to see any whitening. By that point, you have probably spent more money than you would have if you’d have chosen the professional system at your dental practice.
Teeth Whitening Gels
Whitening gels are painted onto teeth with a small brush. One problem with whitening gels is that they only stick to dry teeth. If any saliva gets on the teeth during treatment, the gel is more likely to slide off.
