If you go to superstores or departmental stores and look up home teeth whitening kits, chances are that you will find a myriad of products that promise to deliver stunning results in a couple of weeks, some even a few days. Along with that promise will come price tags that promise to empty out your pockets. The problem is that home teeth whitening kits are a dime a dozen and are of many different types. It really can be difficult trying to figure out what you should try and what you should try first in the case it isn't successful. You'll be surprised to know that home teeth whitening kits may simply be as simple as a toothpaste that needs to be applied every day, a cream to be spread over the teeth for an hour every day, gels or even very special lamps that are often called bleaching lamps.
Another option is a teeth whitening pen which is a very popular choice these days. What you opt for will obviously be dependent on your budget and the ease with which your product can be applied, but one of the most important things that needs to be given especial consideration when buying a home teeth whitening kit is the guarantee that the usage of that particular product does not erode your teeth's enamel. The tooth enamel is a covering on your teeth (the outer layer basically) that helps to protect the teeth against the daily challenges that they face such as chewing and biting. This tooth enamel is also what helps to protect our teeth against extreme temperatures.
Suffice to say, the tooth enamel is vitally important and needs to be preserved. Some home teeth whitening kits contain some extremely powerful chemicals that may contribute towards the gradual erosion of the enamel. Obviously any product that contains such chemicals need to be avoided at all costs. Most dentists recommended that if you are looking to buy a home teeth whitening kit, one of the first things you need to check for is whether the kit has any peroxide content. Peroxide is a major contributor to getting rid of the ever precious tooth enamel and any teeth whitening kit containing it is a complete and total no-no. it should also be kept into mind that false teeth and veneers will remain unaffected by such kits so if you have those, you might end up with different shades of teeth at any one point.
