Tooth whitening with toothpaste

If you are just using bleaching toothpastes, then it will only return your teeth to natural color, and not make them lighter for several tones. It is also worth remembering that a whitening toothpaste should be chosen specially for your teeth, and it should not be used constantly, because you can damage the tooth enamel and cause increased sensitivity of the teeth. Moreover, the effect of the paste will be only after professional cleaning in the dentist’s office. Before using such pastes be sure to consult your dentist!

1) You can hear or read on the Internet about tooth whitening with activated charcoal, chalk, and soda. But these tools only remove the raid and damage enamel. They create a visible effect of the laundry in a very short time. From this cleansing of the gum, a large amount of microtraumas is obtained. Also, soda, coal and chalk can cause allergic rash around the mouth.

2) There are people who whiten teeth with lemon juice. However, it has no effect on the color of the teeth, but only corrodes the enamel. Such bleaching can lead to increased sensitivity of the teeth and inflammation of the gums.

3) A solution of hydrogen peroxide, which is sold in pharmacies, can not bleach the teeth. It contains only 3% of the active substance. Dentists bleach the teeth with a 20% solution of hydrogen peroxide. However, bleaching the teeth at home with such a substance is dangerous! You can burn the entire mouth.

4) At home, you can use only special gels, capes and strips for bleaching. But before using any bleaching agents, be sure to consult a doctor!

The color of teeth in all people is different. The teeth may have a yellowish, grayish tinge, and this is normal! But if you still want a snow white Hollywood smile, we advise you to use the most effective ECObleaching. The gel that is used during the procedure does not damage the tooth enamel, does not change the strength of the teeth, but only displaces the color pigment. The ECO whitening procedure will help not only lovers of coffee and tobacco, but also people who naturally have a yellowish enamel shade. The procedure for such bleaching lasts for about 2 hours and gives an instant result!


How to care for bleached teeth?

After the bleaching procedure, care should be taken carefully for hygiene of the oral cavity: use a floss (dental floss), a high-quality toothbrush and toothpaste, and use an irrigator.
