What Is Teeth Whitening?

Tooth whitening is the procedure to lighten the color of the teeth by removing the stain patch of the enamel and discoloration. The outer layer of the tooth is called enamel and inner part is called dentin. The combination between this enamel and dentin reflects the actual color of the teeth. Teeth whitening is one process in which the actual shades are brightened by tooth cleaning by a dentist or by bleaching which is a 3-4 weeks continuous procedure.

There could be both scientific and home based remedies to whiten teeth effectively:

§  Scientific Remedies:

Professional bleaching:

In this procedure, the dentist would first put a gel or rubber shield on your gum for protective purpose. Then the whitening product which is usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide is applied on the teeth. This product when breaks down mixes with oxygen leading to the enamel thus whitening the teeth.

§  Home Based Remedies:
Oil Pulling: A traditional way to prevent teeth by swishing coconut oil around in the mouth to protect teeth. Coconut oil is used because it has pleasant taste and many other health benefits.

§  Regular Brushing After Eating Twice A Day:

This habit is not only good for having white teeth but also better for over all oral health. This lead to getting rid of the plaque which leaves stains on the teeth leading to bad breathe and pale yellow teeth.

§  Apply Apple Cider Vinegar:

Apple cider vinegar is a natural antibiotic and gum cleanser, it also helps to remove stubborn stains on the teeth. ACV is especially helpful for removing stains due to common consumption of hard liquids like tea, coffee and wine and consumption of nicotine (smoking) products.
