Avon Whitening Essentials Toothpaste Original Cool Mint

How do you feel about your teeth?  Are you self conscious?  Well believe it or not when your teeth are bright and white you look younger.  Just daily wear and tear of eating and drinking can leave stubborn stains on your tooth surface.  To achieve the most dramatic results in tooth whiting you will need to visit your dentist for a professional cleaning.  A con to this professional treatment is the cost anywhere from $200-$1500.  

If you are like me that amount of money is not in your budget, good news!  Over counter tooth, whiteners have come a long way.  The results you can get with an over the counter product now rivals what your doctor can provide.  There are some things to consider when whitening at home.  

What's the best way to whiten your teeth at home?

There are 3 options on types of whiteners.  You have the options of toothpaste, strips, or light devices.  Toothpaste offers minimal results,  strips, and light devices are more effective because they come in direct contact with the tooth surface for longer periods of time.  

Whitening Toothpaste

Most of these toothpaste contains a mild abrasive like calcium carbonate, hydrated silica, and sodium bicarbonate.  These mild abrasives polish and remove stains.   It is recommended that you use use a paste with peroxide, to achieve the best results.  Using twice a day for about 5 days or more you should notice visible results.

Whitening strips and trays

This is where a plastic strip, tray, or mold is used to apply the bleaching agent hydrogen directly to the teeth.  A session lasts anywhere from  30 mins to two hours.  This needs to be done for about three weeks to see results.  If you want fast results this is the way to go.

Whitening light devices

A whiting agent is directly applied to your teeth.  Then a blue LED light is held over them.  This increases penetration and accelerates results.  This is effective again because of the amount of time the agent is in direct contact with the teeth for a longer time.

Emotional stress triggers an increased release of the stress hormone cortisol.   "When cortisol levels rise, they disrupt levels of hormones that regulate sebum balance and result in clogged pores and development of acne.   More oil production means more clogged pores, and more clogged pores mean more breakouts.   “If stress acne seems to happen often, then try switching your skincare routine.
