Teeth Whitening Strips Are an Effective Yet Affordable Alternative

If you don’t know exactly what these are and how the strips work, its systems is actually easily understandable. The teeth whitening strips themselves are essentially invisible, very thin, and flexible made of plastic (ordinarily polyethylene) that had be thinly layered on one part with a peroxide-based whitening gel. Such gel is the element that does the action.

The strips come ordinarily in kits that have several matched up kits. Each pair is composed of one strip for the upper teeth and another one for the lower teeth. A couple times a day, you will have to apply a pair of strips on your teeth and leave them there for approximately 30 minutes. This two times daily procedure is supposed to be followed consecutively for 14 days. You will perhaps notice your teeth starting to whiten in a few days following your initial application of the strips. The end whitening results of the strips will typically last for about 4 to 6 months.

The strips are practically invisible, which is one of their big advantages. Even if somebody pops in at a time you are wearing them, you have nothing to be embarrassed about. Also, they are flexible so applying these strips on to your teeth is very easy, even to the curved surfaces. All you have to do is place the strips above your teeth, press them tenderly, and ensure that they are correctly positioned. As soon as the 30-minutes is over, you simply peel them off your teeth, and then throw them straight into the garbage. While they can be quite less effective against whitening systems that contain bleaching liquids, you might find that this slight disadvantage is balanced by how simple they are to apply.

If you have not used teeth whitening strips yet, you should understand that while they are flexible, they are also flat. There will be some sections of your teeth, for instance the bent parts at the sides, that the strips are unable to cover. In effect, your front teeth may become whiter except the ones adjacent to the sides of the mouth which might retain their usual color.

Of course, these whitening strips are much more affordable as well in comparison to some other whitening techniques that are used at home. For only a small percentage of the price of in-office whitening, strips provide yet another reasonable and effective method for whitening your teeth by yourself. A 14-day supply of these strips can be expected to cost around $15 to $30. That indeed is a truly cost-effective method for achieving a whiter, brighter, and more beautiful teeth.
