If you are searching for a way to erase all the stains and discoloring on your teeth, teeth whitening kits may be your best option. Because of the growing popularity in teeth whitening, there are kits on nearly every shelf of every drug store in America. Infact, it can be overwhelming deciding which one to choose. The best thing to do is to research different brands online. You can even read user reviews to help you decide which one you may want to purchase.

Just go online and type “teeth whitening kits” into the browser. You may be overwhelemed at how many different sites come up. You will have a wealth of information right in front of you. So search through some of the sites and read about each brand.

Don’t stress to much on which brand you purchase. Most kits all include the same ingredient. Carbamide Peroxide. This little ingredient is what goes to work whitening your teeth. The main difference you will find between brands is the concentration percentage of the solution. Some products may only contain 10% of the solution which means it is not that strong. With this type of product, you may have to leave it on your teeth a lot longer than one that contains 20%. However, if your first purchase is a kit containing 20% of the peroxide solution, you may experience some discomfort when it comes to drinking hot or cold beverages. That is because the solution is stronger and will leave your teeth very sensitive. It may be a good idea to start out with something containing 15% solution. Your teeth will get white and you won’t have as much sensitivity as you would with a stronger peroxide solution. Teeth whitening kits were not meant to be used for long periods of time. Each kit may recommend using the solution once a day for a week, but any longer and you will not be making your teeth whiter, you will only be making them more sensitive. Carefully read the instructions on your teeth whitening kit to determine how long you can safely use the product for.

Each teeth whitening kit comes with a mouth piece or tray. The peroxide solution goes into the tray and then into your mouth. The tray covers your teeth and acts as a barrier where saliva can’t get through and wash away the solution.

No matter what brand of teeth whitening kits you use, you are sure to be pleased with the results. The peroxide solution found in most kits is very effective at giving you a whiter, brighter smile.
