1 Tooth Whitening
Tooth whitening is the process of removing stains and coloration from teeth and lightening the color of teeth to make them appear whiter. It is the top cosmetic procedure to be done by the dentists as it can improve the way your teeth look. Also it is not a onetime procedure and needs to be repeated after regular intervals in order to maintain the white color.
The outer layer of teeth is known as enamel and the color of our teeth depends on the color reflected by this enamel, combined with the color of dentin underneath the enamel. Teeth get stained over time with habits such as smoking or chewing tobacco, drinking too much coffee, tea or wine and ignoring dental care.
Most of tooth whitening procedures have to be repeated and if done by professionals, they tend to be expensive. We have for you a homemade procedure that can be done easily with very few ingredients.

Before we go onto the easy homemade tooth whitening trick, let’s take a look at the more sophisticated methods first. Most of the methods are pretty safe and though they require some repetitions to maintain the whiteness, they are effective.
You can use teeth whitening toothpaste, which cleans the surface of the teeth, using a gentle scrub on the teeth. You should look for ADA sealed teeth whitening toothpastes as these are very safe and have the special active ingredients and chemicals that help in keeping the teeth white.
Next comes in-office bleaching in which you will have to visit a dentist, who will apply a protective gel on your teeth or a mouth guard to protect the gums. Then bleach will be applied to the teeth and laser or special light will be used to enhance and activate the whitening agent in the bleach.
