Learn About Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is the most popular dental procedure in the United States. Having a beautiful bright smile can leave a memorable lasting impression. Teeth whitening procedures have increased in the United States by over 300% in the last 5 years. There is a large variety of different whitening products that can be bought from over the counter products to teeth whitening kits.

The difference between whitening products and bleaching is that bleaching can cause teeth to be whiter than their natural color with products that contain bleach. People are sometimes skeptical about teeth bleaching so it is common for products that contain bleach to use the word whitening instead.

Teeth bleaching can help remove stains that are deeper in the tooth. Teeth bleaching can make teeth up to 10 shades whiter and is generally performed in office by a professional. Teeth whitening helps remove surface stains that are caused by dark foods or drinks. Teeth whitening products sometimes contain peroxide which can cause teeth sensitivity if it goes through the enamel, which is what truly sets InstaDazzle apart.

Types of Teeth Stains

When it comes to whitening teeth there are extrinsic, intrinsic and age-related stains. These stains can affect different parts of the tooth and knowing the type of stain that your teeth have can help you know the best way to remove them.

Extrinsic Stains

Extrinsic stains are stains on the surface of the teeth also known as the enamel. These stains are generally made by regularly consuming foods and drinks such as coffee, wine, black tea, soda, acidic drinks or food, poor oral hygiene, chewing tobacco and smoking. Teeth whitening can help remove these stains by removing the surface stain. Teeth whitening is the safest way to whiten teeth especially for those with sensitive teeth. Whitening products usually contain hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide. Oftentimes products that contain peroxide can break through the enamel and get to the soft layer of dentin in the tooth, causing teeth to become sensitive. Regular use of peroxide from teeth whitening agents can be harmful to not only teeth but also to gums.

Intrinsic Stains

Intrinsic tooth stains occur when there is a stain on the dentin which is the layer before the enamel. Intrinsic stains can occur when there is excessive use of fluoride, especially in children. Tetracycline and minocycline antibiotics used in children under 8 and during the second half of the pregnancy (when teeth formation is occurring) have been linked to intrinsic tooth stains. Trauma and infection are also other causes of intrinsic tooth stains. When the tooth becomes injured, immune cells are sent to the tooth and this can increase blood pressure causing a dark pigment to show up on the tooth. Intrinsic stains can be removed by using products that contain bleach.

Age Related Stains

Age related stains can be both intrinsic and extrinsic. The dentin layer of teeth naturally become more yellow and dark as one gets older. It is also common for enamel to wear down and become thin, as one ages, revealing layers underneath that are darker. Whitening and bleaching can both help remove stains that naturally appear with age.

Types of Teeth Whitening Products

There are different types of teeth whitening products and teeth whitening kits that can be used to help get rid of stains. There are over the counter products, in office whitening and bleaching and at home teeth whitening kits

Over the counter DIY teeth whitening products are typically tooth pastes, rinses, gels, trays and whitening strips. These types of products help remove extrinsic stains that are on the surface of the teeth. Over the counter products are generally the cheapest and least harmful on teeth. Over the counter products cost $20 to $100.

In office professional teeth whitening is the fastest and safest way to remove intrinsic and extrinsic teeth stain. In office bleaching is achieved by using a higher percentage of peroxide in a bleaching agent that helps target and remove stains resulting in a more dramatic teeth whitening effect. In office whitening can cost, on average, between $450 to $650.

Teeth whitening kits are provided by dentists with a low percentage of peroxide agents that help fight surface and deep enamel stains. Teeth whitening kits usually contain whitening gel and a mouth tray. There are also whitening kits that provide a whitening light that helps speed up the teeth whitening process. Teeth whitening kits vary in price from $250 to $400.

There are many options to choose from when it comes to whitening your teeth. If you are looking for a product to remove surface stains on the enamel, then our best recommendation would be going the safe route and trying teeth whitening toothpaste.

In office whitening can be very pricey and if you want to keep up with a super bright white shade you have to go back every few months and redo the bleaching process. Our two step process is the perfect solution for stains that are caused by regularly consuming coffee, wine, dark foods or smoking and it’s as easy as brushing your teeth everyday! We want to help you achieve a beautiful bright smile to leave a great lasting impression.

My boyfriend actually noticed!

On the advice of my dentist I was told to stay away from teeth whiteners that were peroxide based. When I found Instadazzle and read the ingredients I realized it was safe for my teeth so I figured it was worth a try. I’m SO glad I found this!! They said it would take up to 4 weeks but I saw a difference in the first couple days. My boyfriend, who never notices ANYTHING, even asked if I was using some sort of new toothpaste. Thanks Instadazzle!

WOW, It really works!

Thank you guys at InstaDazzle. I have been using this for only a few days and already I am getting compliments. This is so much better than the toxic stuff I have used in the past, which hurt my gums and made my teeth feel like they were on fire everytime I drank a glass of cold water. Plus I don’t have to use those stupid tray and gel systems anymore… do those lights even work? Again, thanks a bunch, love it.
