Tooth Whitening

.

Nothing says “Health” better than a vibrant smile.

If you´re lucky enough to have one, it is a real asset you definitely want to protect.

And if yours is a bit less than perfect, you may want to consider taking advantage of cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of your teeth.

.

.

Actually, it’s often more than just appearance:

The state of your mouth affects your overall health.

One of the things you might be tempted to improve your smile is buying a tooth whitening kit and applying it on several occasions during the next week. The improvement will probably be instant – and gratifying – but you might be disappointed when the discolouration returns soon afterwards.

.

.

When you then start to look at tooth cleaning kits, like 1.2 million other people do  EVERY MONTH,  you will probably surprised by the incredibly harsh chemicals used.

.

And indeed you can find better  and more reliable methods.

Whatever claims the product you are thinking of using makes, the facts are simple: your teeth can only be whitened successfully if they are clean and free of decay. Ignore this information and you may produce a very ‘uneven’ smile.  Hence my recommendation as a first step is having your teeth cleaned by a hygienist.

.

You can attain great improvement in whitening your teeth by using oil pulling for about 6-8 weeks and finish off with your home made toothpaste (Chapter SIX) after every pulling session.

There are several precautions you want to consider such as pregnancy, breastfeeding or smoking.

A good idea might be to check first with your dentist.

Your Checklist for the Dentist

.
If you haven´t been to the dentist for a while, make sure you get a comprehensive dental check up.

In our easy to read book you´ll find two self-explaining lists one for checking your teeth at home and one to put you in the know what your dentist is likely to examine.

Your dentist will probably take a series of x-rays to check if any decay is hidden in between the teeth, below fillings or crowns, if the roots of your teeth are healthy and the jaw bone is well.

Your dentist will  scan your mouth for any signs of cancer, check your chewing habits, chewing related muscles and the joints you use to chew ( TMJ).

If you have experienced any discomfort or pain, now is the time to support your dentist and tell according to the list we provided.

Whatever treatment appears to be necessary and is recommended make sure you fully understand the procedures with its pros and cons as well as the alternatives.
