The Best At-Home Teeth Whitening Treatments and Products

Are you looking for some good at home teeth whitening advice?

There are lots of people who would like whiter teeth, and nothing is wrong with that. Some people can brush and floss regularly and take really good care of their teeth but still not be happy with the way their teeth look.

Let's face it...some people just have naturally whiter teeth. But if you really want to whiten your teeth, it is definitely possible. There is a wide range of techniques you can use to get whiter teeth, and you don't have to spend a lot of money if you don't want to either.

Of course, you do need to make sure you start with the basics and always brush your teeth at least three times a day. This is especially important directly after meals and before bed, and you should be flossing to take care of your teeth too.

The next step is to pick a product that works for you. Most companies that make toothpaste also make special at home teeth whitening products. The most common types are whitening gels, creams, and strips for your teeth. Prices and applications vary, so find one that looks good to you. Only use one product so you can tell what is working and what isn't.

As for home remedies, you have a couple options too. There is an old remedy of making a paste by mixing baking soda and hydrogen peroxide and brushing with that. This works fairly well, but it can be a bit rough on your gums. If you have sensitive gums, you can try using strawberry pulp if you can get some since it has a bleaching effect and is more gentle on your gums.

Don't discount home remedies like that, but be aware that you can also get professional whitening treatments at your local dentist. Laser whitening and the newer "light activated" teeth whitening treatments can get fairly expensive (up to $2,000), but they work extremely well and give great results that will last for a very long time.

If you want to try some of the whitening products available on the market, you can also shop online. The Amazon online store has a large selection of products. There are also smaller companies that offer free samples and trial supplies of their products in order to build their reputation and customer base. These freebie deals are usually only for a limited time though, so if you find a product that looks good and they are offering a sample, jump on the chance while you can.
