If you’re considering treatments there are a some important things you should know to be sure your experience will be safe and effective. They won’t guarantee you’ll see great results, but following these ten will certainly help give your treatments a boost.

1. Get in Habit of Cleaning Teeth Regularly

Some may think this goes without saying, but you’d be surprised how many people don’t take care of their teeth and gums on a regular basis. It should come as no surprise, then, how important this step is in making sure your treatments are as effective as possible.

2. Research and Choose Method Carefully

This is a very important step because there are a lot of gimmicks and bad information out there. In order to be sure you get the , and safest, results, thorough research is critical. Your first decision should be whether to apply treatments at home or have it done professionally. From there follow up with either your dentist or the product manufacturer.

3. Apply Treatments at Same Time Each Day

Getting in a treatment routine is key for a number of reasons. If you are being treated by a dentist you may have less control over when your appointments are, but if you are doing it yourself, scheduled treatments will make it less likely you’ll miss a day. Humans are creatures of habit, so getting used to doing something is easier if you make it a routine.

4. Monitor Your Progress

Just like dieting, it’s easy to become discouraged when whitening your teeth. Monitoring your progress will help you see the changes as they happen, however small they may be. Take a picture of your teeth before you start and compare it to how they look after a week of whitening, then two weeks, and so on. You might be surprised how much success you’re having without even realizing it.

5. Don’t Get Discouraged

Watching how your treatments progress is a good way to keep from being discouraged, but it may also make you impatient. Remember that you spent years eating and drinking things that created the stains and discoloration you’re trying to remove and that it will take time to correct. Don’t expect the treatments to work faster than the package or dentist states it will and be prepared to continue use beyond a single treatment as not all people respond to all treatments. Above all, be patient.

6. Limit Use of Things That Stain Teeth

Drinking liters of cola daily for many years will cause significant discoloration to your teeth. If you don’t want this to happen to you, be sure to limit the amounts of that and other staining agents. The greater the challenge when you start, the longer it will take to reach your goal.

7. Follow Directions of Kit or Dentist Carefully

Instructions are on the box for a reason. Dentists give you warnings for the same reason. They know the safest, most successful way to use the treatments through experience and science. Ignoring them may cause serious side effects and will reduce the effectiveness of your whitening treatments, making your efforts a painful, expensive waste of time.

8. Discontinue if You Experience Pain or Discomfort

Although most treatments are widely considered safe to use, some people experience sensitivity to the active ingredients, especially after prolonged use. If you find yourself feeling pain or discomfort on your teeth or gums reduce or discontinue treatments until you can discuss your situation with your dentist.

9. Use Only One Treatment at a Time

Mixing and matching your whitening treatments is usually counterproductive for a couple reasons. First, if you have success you won’t know which is mostly responsible for it, and second, they usually don’t work any better coupled with another treatment. In other words, you’re better off testing them one at a time and comparing the results. The type you respond better to is the one you should use in future treatments.

10. Use Water and Sugarless Gum to Keep Mouth Clean

It’s important to keep your teeth clean regularly rather than trying to remove old plaque all at once. By chewing sugarless gum (whitening gum is a good choice) and rinsing your mouth regularly with water you’ll reduce the amount of buildup on your teeth, making your task of whitening a whole lot easier. Just like anything else, before you clean it thoroughly you want the loose, surface grime removed first.

So there you have it, the 10 Best Teeth Whitening TIps . These tips aren’t the absolute cure-all for teeth whitening but incorporating them into your treatment plans will give you a great head start and boost in your efforts. You will notice a difference by following them, I guarantee it. Start using them today!
