Written By: contrac - Feb• 16•14

There was a time when it was very expensive and time consuming to whiten your teeth. Just a short decade ago, the only people who could have their teeth whitened were the ones who went to the dentist to have it done. You are still able to have professional whitening done in your dentists office. For a fee you can have the smile you want in as little as five minutes, but it can still be pretty expensive to go that route. There are many effective tooth whiteners on the market that you can get without a prescription, most at your local pharmacy or online. The best place to go online for teeth whitening products is or Teeth Whitening Reviews.

Whitening strips are adhesives that are placed over the teeth that work just as well as the treatment that you get at the dentist’s office. They normally take as little as three to five days depending on the brand. Some can take up to ten to fourteen days, so make sure to read the package before you invest. They have a tendency to taste pretty bad and they can sometimes be messy to deal with or slide from your teeth. They are a very inexpensive and effective way to whiten the teeth if you have the patience and are willing to put up with the other disadvantages.

There is a whole new line of toothpastes and washes that whiten the teeth gradually. Having an active ingredient built in, there is no need to do anything additional but brush your teeth. They don’t work as quickly, but when you do have the stains cleared, they have the additional advantage of protecting your teeth from any stains in the future. They are also less likely to produce the tooth sensitivity that has been reported with other types of bleaching agents.

If you are looking for the best way to whiten your teeth it is really a personal preference. All the different whiteners all achieve the same results, it really depends on who much time you want to wait and how much money you are willing to spend. Each method has its own set of disadvantages and advantages, none being perfect. What you can be guaranteed, however, is that if you follow the instructions of whatever form you choose you will have the perfect white smile that you set out wanting. The quickest fix to your appearance is right at your fingertips.
