Teeth Whitening: What works and what doesn't work - 18 April 2012

Teeth Whitening: What works and what doesn't work

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedures in the world for the discerning customer who wants to look younger, increase confidence and feel attractive. However, it's important to acknowledge that this popular treatment does have its own limitations and drawbacks fused with the fact that teeth whitening is not for everyone. Women who are pregnant or nursing are always advised against whitening due to it never having been tested, as well as people who suffer from gum disease. Teeth whitening is also not recommended for people with broken or cracked teeth or cavities in the areas that they want to be whitened. It's also important to remember that most teeth whitening procedures only work with natural teeth; veneers, crowns and fillings will not change shade with teeth whitening gels.

So, if you are a suitable candidate for teeth whitening, how white will they go? The results of whitening your teeth are very much subject to their existing undertone. Most people have a slight undertone to their smile ranging from a palest yellow, to a very pale brown to the palest of grey. According to dental experts who specialise in teeth whitening, people who have a yellow undertone have higher degrees of whitening success compared to people with a brownish undertone. For people with grey undertones it is somewhat disappointing. Greyish teeth are generally the least responsive when it comes to teeth bleaching.
Ideal teeth whitening candidates are those whose teeth are discoloured or stained due to the constant consumption of tea, coffee, wine and other acidic drinks and foods.

So, if you class yourself as the ideal candidate for teeth whitening, you are going to want to know what works and exactly what doesn't? Here is an honest and in-depth rundown featuring at home teeth whitening methods and professional teeth whitening treatments.

Best Teeth whitening kits

Teeth whitening kits are by far the most popular and affordable system for whitening your teeth. With millions sold across the globe each month, teeth whitening kits are now a part of any bathroom cabinet and are used by both males and females on a daily basis to enhance their white smiles. The best teeth whitening kits available today are sold by companies such as Whitesmiles247, Teethwhiteningsuperstore, who offer teeth whitening kits from as little as £24.99 and include more than 80 teeth whitening treatments in each kit.

How do the teeth whitening kits work?

The best teeth whitening kits have all the necessary items included so you can have a safe and professional teeth whitening treatment. The teethwhiteningsuperstore kit comes with 16%, 22% or 35% teeth whitening gel, a led blue laser teeth whitening light, a set of dual arch teeth whitening trays, remineralisation gel and detailed instructions. This kit is fantastic value when you consider you have over 80 individual teeth whitening treatment, which should last you well over a year. By just wearing the teeth whitening trays with a tiny bit of teeth whitening gel for 20-30mins each day you will have a fantastic new white smile in less than a week. This is why we vote this teeth whitening kit the best value at £24.99.

Salon Teeth Whitening

Salon teeth whitening is a blend of do-it-yourself and "professional" whitening techniques. You'll find teeth whitening salons and clinics available in towns all over the country and they claim to offer "professional results" at a fraction of the cost of in-dental bleaching techniques.

How do they work?
Beauty salon whitening is at present, "legal" mainly due to the grey area between the EU and UK regulators. Many beauty therapists and lay persons make a comfortable living offing laser teeth whitening in beauty salons and clinics.

Results
Beauty salons and laser teeth whitening clinics will advertise a new whiteness of between 2 and 11 shades. This is very misleading to say the least and should be taken with a pinch of salt. The results are dependent on your teeth and not what the beauty salon say they can do.

Concerns
Because beauty salons aren't staffed by people who've undergone any accredited dental training, there is no real screening involved to eliminate unlikely whitening candidates. The salons are mostly concerned with sales figures and have no interest or knowledge of the actual of your teeth. So while someone with severe stains may not experience any whitening - someone with cavities, cracked teeth or serious dental disease may actually experience pain, or worse.

Personalised teeth whitening trays/moulds

The personalised teeth whitening trays are considered the gold standard for a safe and effective teeth whitening treatment. Offered by dentists and some salons, an impression is taken of your teeth then sent of to a lab for processing. The teeth whitening moulds are then usually sent back to you as part of a kit that includes teeth whitening gel.

How do these kits work?
When you're home, you fill the trays with a peroxide bleaching gel (usually 16-22%) and fit the teeth whitening trays over your teeth. The concentration of peroxide will determine how long you wear the trays and how quickly you achieve results. Some people use the trays for 30 to 90 minutes each day over a two-week period, while others wear the trays overnight for 1 to 2 weeks. It has however been realised more recently that the peroxide gel goes inactive after 2 hours, so the need to wear teeth whitening trays all night is now a thing of the past.

The level of shade whiteness that can be obtained from using professionally made teeth whitening trays along with peroxide gel can usually last for years. If the teeth start staining again, simply do a re-touch bleach which will restore the teeth to a whiter shade.

Conclusion: Although using professional teeth whitening take-home trays can be very time-consuming, they do offer excellent, long-term and durable teeth whitening results. In general, specially tailored teeth whitening trays are more effective than any other home teeth whitening treatment, and are mostly less expensive than in-dental treatments.

Teeth whitening toothpastes

Over-the-counter teeth whitening toothpastes are the most popular whitening products around, mainly because they are cheap and widely available in chemists, pound shops and retail outlets. But the truth is "you usually get what you paid for." The overall success of any teeth whitening product lies primarily in the amount of time the teeth are in contact with a peroxide or non peroxide bleaching agent - and the concentration of the teeth whitening gel being used. Since toothpastes contain a very low concentration of bleach, in fact almost none, and remain on the teeth for merely a few minutes or even seconds, they deliver only a tiny degree of visible change to the teeth's overall shade.

What's available in the market?
Today, many oral care brands have their own versions of whitening toothpastes, such as: Crest Extra Whitening toothpaste, Rembrandt Whitening Toothpaste and Colgate Whitening Toothpaste.

How do whitening toothpastes work?
Almost all the whitening toothpastes work on the same principle. They use hydrogen peroxide or other whitening agents in very small quantities to gently remove surface stains caused by tea, coffee, wine, etc.

Results
Some dentists believe that teeth whitening toothpastes are a complete waste of time and money and aren't any better at whitening teeth than ordinary toothpastes. Other dentists believe that whitening toothpastes can help improve the colour of teeth, albeit to a very small degree. However, in some cases, people do experience considerable improvement in their tooth colour.

Professional In-Office Whitening

Dentist in-office bleaching is the quickest, easiest and least painful method of teeth whitening. But it is also the most costly way of dramatically improving your smile. Dentists can charge upwards of £700 for a simple laser teeth whitening procedure.

What is Dental Bleaching all about?
Today, there are two primary types of in-office bleaching - light-activated bleaching and non-light activated. Light-activated procedures (Zoom, Sapphire, Smiles247 etc.) claim to produce a 9-shade improvement in 60 minutes with the use of a laser or LED-powered light.

Advantages: There are various advantages to dental office treatment as opposed to other forms of teeth whitening. Dentist-administered whitening procedures permit higher concentrations of bleach and can assure proper bleach contact with teeth - improving the chances of maximum whitening. You also have the added benefit of a full dental check up to make sure you were suitable in the first place for teeth whitening.

Results: The results of in-office whitening can last up to several years. But this is purely down to your own living habits.
