Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic service in the world – and it’s easy to understand why.
Just as we all have different hair and skin color, we also all have different “tooth genetics.” Some people will be more affected by yellowing and discoloration of the teeth than others, for example.
Lifestyle also plays a significant role in how healthy your teeth look. The frequency in which you smoke tobacco, drink coffee, brush and floss your teeth, and practice good oral hygiene has a big impact on both the health and appearance of your teeth.
What sucks about teeth whitening? Well, first it can be expensive and time-consuming. A professional teeth whitening can cost up to $650 US. Second, most of us despise going to the dentist. Some polls report up to 80 percent of people have a fear of visiting a dental office. Hey, there are some fears we just don’t get over!
So, can we just bypass the dentist’s chair and take care of this whole teeth whitening thing ourselves?
Yes. In fact, we’re going to discuss not one, but five ways that you can whiten your own teeth! Better yet, all of these methods are inexpensive, requiring little more than common pantry goods and some patience!
