What Is The Best Way To Whiten Your Teeth
What IS the best way to whiten your teeth?
The science behind over the counter teeth whitening products, toothpastes, and teeth bleaching methods.
The American Chemical Society created a video explaining why teeth stain and the best way to whiten your teeth. It also shows the science behind teeth whitening products which will clearly point out why some teeth whitening methods work and some don’t.
The video explains the way enamel which is the hardest substance in your entire body made up of calcium and phosphate ions formed in crystals. Most of us believe that the enamel is stained, but scientifically the staining from these substances work their way in the tiny pores and stain the layer just under enamel.
Teeth Whitening Toothpastes
This explains why brushing your teeth even with a special whitening toothpaste isn’t the best way to whiten your teeth. The toothpaste is literally abrasive to the surface of your teeth used over time, but isn’t able to really penetrate the crystal rods or tiny pores to get to the real staining problem. In fact most may contain abrasive elements such as silica. Your teeth actually look whiter by a staining of a bit of blue to balance the yellowish color!
Teeth Whitening Strips
The first thing people tend to turn to is are teeth whitening strips as the best way to whiten your teeth. Teeth whitening strips work but for a short time and here is why. The carbamide peroxide oxidizes molecules staining the teeth. The strips are literally removing electrons, the part of the molecule that makes up color or stain. Whitening strips disrupt chromophore similar to how bleach products remove stains fro clothing. It is also why this method can leave your teeth sensitive and why the process is short lived.
Best Teeth Whitening Method
The American Chemical Society video says the best method to whiten teeth is peroxide. This method is administered by a dentist or by a teeth whitening specialist. The solution will penetrate the micropores of enamel, truly lightening teeth without abrasion, taking 6 weeks or more to get results or using a blue tint to make yellowed teeth appear brighter.
