It will take something in our lives to trigger something that inspires to make these improvements but sometimes we need the kick to help to keep sight on our personal wellbeing and health in check.
Unlike some of the above (and we have not even discussed cosmetic treatments or surgery!) then teeth whitening must rank pretty high on the list for being the most affordable combined with long lasting.
A typical gym membership is not cheap, nor is going to the hair dressers every few weeks so at least with whitening it falls in to a cheaper category altogether.
The choice will primarily depend on available budget and also if you need the teeth to look white for a particular occasion like a wedding as an example.
If you have a tight budget then you will have to accept you will need to put more work in and also results are not instant as the DIY kits are weaker in strength and therefore take longer to remove the staining to reveal whiter teeth.
If you the type that cannot
be bothered with using a home kit in the mouth regularly for around ten to fourteen days for about an hour at a time then go for the more expensive light based system as these will take less effort and time.
The DIY kits are very useful for keeping teeth white and once the staining has been lifted the home kit will ensure the staining stays away and keeps the teeth bright and healthy looking.
The light based systems are not perfect but do offer an instant solution and because the whitening gel is the highest strength available will whiten the teeth as best as possible in around 90 minutes including the consultation visit.
This will get deeper in the teeth to lift the staining we achieve as we mature so this another reason these systems has a higher success rate than the DIY kits.
Whatever you select when it comes to teeth whitening just keep your overall objectives clear and do let some the marketing hype you read on the net put you off and always see your dentist first.
