Though formulation and effectiveness of toothpastes have improved over the years, the way to use it remains the same. Other option is teeth whitening gel or bleaching gel. These contain peroxide which removes stain by penetrating the teeth enamel. Another product is laser teeth whitening gel which is activated using laser light, preferably in a cosmetic dentist's chamber. The heat of the laser device penetrates the enamel and removes the stain from the teeth.
The first step toward teeth whitening procedure through cosmetic dentistry is to go for some professional teeth whitening advice. Just being aware of the products is not enough. Before you try something on your own teeth whitening advice should be followed, otherwise, the product may harm you.

These are some other teeth whitening advice which you may like to consider while going in for cosmetic dentistry:
â¢ To bleach the teeth the dentist will use hydrogen peroxide which will be spread on the teeth for laser treatment. This substance is harmful if it penetrates the gum. So, immediately after the treatment you should rinse off your mouth. â¢ If you have some kind of white filling already in your teeth, remove it, because it will remain less white after the process of teeth whitening. â¢ After using cosmetic dentistry another general yet effective teeth whitening advice will be regarding the aftercare. You should brush your teeth immediately after eating or drinking or at least rinse it. Using a whitening toothpaste will also help. It is essential that you should maintain the whitening as long as possible.
