Teeth Whitening Ottawa

We all want a set of pearly white teeth. But, not everyone wants to strip their teeth of their natural color or bleach them with chemicals. For those looking for a healthier way to whiten their teeth, there are a number of methods that can give you the same results as bleaching your teeth without the harsh side effects. In today’s blog post, I will talk about the best ways to whiten your teeth naturally and safely.

The Difference Between Bleaching and Whitening

The two main methods that can whiten teeth is bleaching and whitening. The difference between bleaching and whitening is that whitening is an active process that starts before teeth are bleached to help retain the natural color. But, bleaching is only used in certain situations as a last resort to get a professional whitening treatment.

Washing Away the Negative ions (alpha and beta particles) within the mouth.

Bubbles from white vinegar.

Limiting the amount of soap, you use in the shower.

Mineral pass through procedures (speeding up the action of the tooth so that you don’t need to wash it as much).

Creating a warm, foaming mouth wash.

Using whitening products that contain hydrogen peroxide.

How to Whiten Your Teeth Naturally

The aim of most of the teeth whitening products you buy at the pharmacy or on the internet is to remove color from your teeth, so you will have a white or even a yellow-ish smile. This isn’t the only method to whiten your teeth, but the main method that we are going to cover here.

No matter what tooth whitening method you go for, it’s important to be aware of how it works, because the removal of natural tooth coloration with teeth whitening products is temporary, but tooth bleaching without chemical intervention can lead to an irreversible effect.

Without going into a lot of detail, here are some quick steps to get you started on the road to naturally whitening your teeth.

How to Whiten Your Teeth with a Professional

You don’t have to pay big bucks or take an hour-long course to whiten your teeth. But, for a professional-grade product to be effective, you need a trained professional to do the job. And, you need to make an appointment with someone who knows what they’re doing.

On the other hand, there are plenty of home remedies that will get you the same results of a professional whitening. But, without professional supervision, the outcome won’t be as perfect or successful.

But, before we get into the home remedies, let’s talk about what happens when you whiten your teeth at home:

-excessive wear, chipping, discoloration

-discomfort in the mouth

-deadened teeth

If you have any of the above problems, you shouldn’t use any type of teeth whitening products at home.

How to Whiten Your Teeth at Home

There are numerous methods of doing whitening at home. There is a huge variety of products available, some of which are approved by the FDA. If you want to go through the FDA approval process, there are a number of reputable companies that have developed and tested products and can prove they’re safe to use.

Instead of using harsh chemicals that could potentially damage your teeth and gums, you can choose to use powerful whitening toothpastes or a toothbrush with various levels of power to get the job done. Most of these toothpastes use at least one form of hydrogen peroxide. This forms white strips of color on your teeth in a few minutes.

Vinegar may not be the first ingredient that comes to mind when you think of teeth whitening.
