My Teeth Whitening Experience

I have always wanted pearly white teeth. Maybe my obsession with having white teeth came from watching too much trashy reality tv. The cast always have very white teeth on those programs. That could be why I am always in the pursuit of extra white teeth.

I know most of these celebs go for teeth whitening with Invisalign. I read that somewhere anyway. However, the treatment option has never been offered to me, and if it is offered, I know I will be turning down. I hear it is a lot of money to get them done and to be honest, I don’t think I need that much work done. Great dental clinics like this Whitby dentist, do offer affordable payment plans for those who need it. So if you are interested in having your teeth whitened, don’t let the price tag scare you. Do your research and find out the best payment plan for your budget.

My Teeth Whitening Experience

I have had my teeth whitened twice now. The first time was in 2012. I had it done at a very posh private clinic and I was very happy with the results. I was given home kits to take away with to use for about 2 weeks. My teeth went many shades whiter! I was so impressed!  For £200, it was money well spent in my eyes! I didn’t have to deal with teeth sensitivity at all, which was great too.

As the years have gone by, with all the eating and drinking. I needed to have a top up session done. So I booked a teeth whitening session with our dentist some months ago. I paid a bit more than £200 this time. I had a teeth whitening session for 1 hour at the clinic, and I was given a teeth whitening kit to use for 3 days at home. However, this experience was so different from my first. I felt the 1 hour teeth whitening session at the dentist was not as effective. There was little or no difference. I didn’t notice any difference but the dentist did.

The home kit given to me was also very difficult to use. It made my teeth so sensitive, I had to stop using it. I didn’t have this issue the first time I had my teeth whitened, so I found this new experience very confusing. It is frustrating that the money spent looks wasted.

I will probably look at having my teeth whitened again in future but I need to be able to see a clear difference.

 

Have you ever had your teeth whitened before? Were you happy with the results?

How to Whiten your Teeth at Home

There’s nothing as attractive as a smile. But a smile that reveals a set of sparkling white teeth is quite alluring.

However, the food we eat and the beverages we drink can stop us from having snow-white teeth. This is because such foods and beverages tend to stain our teeth. Beverages like tea or coffee are well-known culprits in this. When your teeth get stained, your teeth assume varying shades of yellow or at the very worst brown!

To get white teeth, most people go to dentists for a teeth whitening treatment. Some go for teeth whitening stripes. Most times, these methods are quite expensive.

Before you opt for these expensive teeth whitening treatments, you could try whitening your teeth using the some items you have in your kitchen cupboard? These natural methods of whitening your teeth are safe and have no known side effects but it is always safer to speak with your dentist before trying any of these methods.

So with the disclosure above out-of-the-way, here are some of the ways you can whiten your teeth at home.

 

Baking soda + lemon juice

Baking soda has been know to be a very useful item in your kitchen. It can perform a lot of wonders in the area of cooking and cleaning. When baking soda teams up with the juice of a lemon, it makes an effective teeth whitening paste.

Take some baking soda and mix it into a clean bowl. The baking soda you pour in the bowl should be enough to clear all your teeth and make them whiter. The next thing to do is to squeeze out the juice from half a lemon. The baking soda should come to the consistency of a paste. The baking soda will bubble but don’t worry, it’s pretty safe to use.

Apply the paste on your teeth with your finger or use your toothbrush and brush your teeth. Do this consistently for a couple of days and your teeth will be several shades whiter.

 

Brush with Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar is getting quite popular these days with its various health benefits and versatile uses. Apple Cider Vinegar can help whiten your teeth too. It is quite acidic which is good to help breakdown plaque and fight germs in your mouth.

Take some Apply Cider Vinegar, use it to brush your teeth everyday until you get your teeth to the desired shade. Make sure that you brush your teeth with your regular toothpaste immediately after brushing with Apple cider vinegar as the acids in the apple cider can be very strong and destroy the enamel.

Strawberries

This is the most delicious solution to get white teeth. Strawberries have great teeth whitening ability and the mode of application is very simple. All you have to do is to mash-up about 5 strawberries. Apply the mashed strawberries on your teeth. Use your fingers to rub the mashed strawberries all over your teeth. With consistent use, your teeth will become whiter and whiter.
