Ancient Teeth Whitening Methods Our ancestors were also concerned about whiter teeth. They used different methods to achieve a shining smile. The ancient Egyptians around 4000 years ago started the process of teeth whitening. They were very much concerned with appearing beautiful and wealthy. Thus they mixed wine vinegar with ground pumice stone in order to create a white paste which they applied to their teeth. The ancient Romans used urine as bleach to whiten their teeth. It was the ammonia in the urine that contributed to a bright smile. The Greeks of old times applied strange mixtures and chemicals to their teeth which they extracted from leaves. During the 17th century people used to go to their barber to whiten their teeth. The barber filed the teeth and rubbed nitric acid to them. Unfortunately this practice left people with a few or no teeth at all because they decayed. The Europeans of the Renaissance applied bleach to their teeth. They had whiter teeth for a limited period but as time passed their enamel started to wear away resulting in tooth decay. In the early 19th century fluoride was discovered in order to maintain healthy teeth. On the other hand an excessive use of fluoride caused teeth staining. Applying Bleaching Gel To Brighten Teeth One of the teeth whitening methods that many people try at home is using a bleaching gel. Bleaching gel is pretty inexpensive and easy to find. Bleaching gels are made from a peroxide solution that can be applied in several different ways. The gel can be applied in a bleaching tray that fits over the teeth or with a small brush or a toothbrush. It also can be put into a bleaching pen and applied with the pen. Advantages of Using Bleaching Gel One of the advantages of using bleaching gel to brighten teeth is the ease of use. Because you can use the gel in a tray in a pen or painted directly onto the teeth with a brush it makes it easy for people to apply the gel in whatever method works for them. Bleaching gel works in as little as 10 minutes which makes it perfect for people who want to brighten their teeth before going out or going to work. Bleaching gel also is not as messy as some other types of tooth whitening products because it is a thick gel. But despite the advantages using bleaching gel is not always the best choice for tooth whitening. Disadvantages of Using Bleaching Gel Bleaching gel like many other peroxide based tooth whiteners doesnt dramatically whiten teeth. If your teeth have some minor staining or are just looking dull then a bleaching gel will make your teeth look whiter. But if your teeth are discolored or seriously stained the peroxide gel wont have enough power to dramatically whiten your teeth. Another disadvantage is that the gel has to stay on your teeth in order to work which means you cant eat drink or do anything that might loosen the gel from the teeth the entire time that youre wearing the gel.

Using the gel everyday can weaken the enamel on your teeth and over time it can cause sensitivity or make any existing sensitivity worse. Chewing Sugar Free Gums For Whiter Teeth Brushing your teeth after meals is the best way to prevent the food that you eat from staining your teeth. But its not always possible to brush right after eating a meal drinking coffee or having some wine with friends. If you eat out often and are concerned about your teeth getting stained by what you eat and drink there is an alternative to brushing. Chewing sugar free gum after eating or drinking has been proven to help prevent stains and keep your mouth healthy. How Sugar Free Gum Helps Your Mouth There are a couple of ways that sugar free gum can help prevent stained teeth. The first is that when you chew gum the gum acts like an abrasive on the teeth gently scrubbing away any stains as well as food particles and plaque that get stuck to your teeth. As the gum scrubs away the stains and the debris your teeth will look whiter and no new stains will be able to set on the surface of the teeth. Chewing sugar free gum also stimulates the production of saliva in your mouth. That saliva will help rinse debris and plaque from your teeth. When your mouth has been rinsed by saliva your breath will be fresher and your teeth will be whiter. Dont Stop Brushing Just because chewing sugar free gum will make your teeth whiter doesnt mean that you can stop brushing though. You still need to brush your teeth with toothpaste at least twice a day. But if you are out with friends eating or you are working late and dont get the chance to brush right after your meal dont worry. Chewing sugar free gums will prevent stains and plaque and keep your teeth white. Just be sure that the gum is sugarless. Sugary gums can end up damaging your teeth and causing decay.

Non-natural Teeth Bleaching Methods Cause Gum Irritation Gum irritation is a byproduct of teeth whitening that is done incorrectly. This can happen when you use an at home bleaching kit or even when you visit a dentist for a cosmetic bleaching if the dentist isnt paying close enough attention. Gum irritation is quite common after teeth bleaching but most of the time the damage isnt permanent. It is painful and ugly however and it can take anywhere from a week to a month to heal depending on the severity of the irritation. Why it Happens Gum irritation burns and blisters are all due to the bleaching gel used to whiten teeth coming in contact with the gums. When you use a DIY teeth bleaching kit the trays that the kit comes with are not made specifically for your mouth. Because they are not custom made they wont fit tightly enough to prevent the whitening gel from coming in contact with your gums. When you leave the gel on for a long period of time to whiten your teeth that gel is also irritating and burning your gums at the same time. When a dentist does a bleaching procedure they usually take the time to fit the bleaching tray to your mouth to prevent gum irritation. But sometimes the tray still isnt tight enough or the dentist gets some of the gel on the gums as well as on the teeth before a laser bleaching. The gel can turn the gums white and can cause blisters and burns that can make talking eating or drinking very painful. What to do About It If you want to avoid the possibility of bleaching your teeth causing gum irritation dont use at home bleaching kits that use chemical bleaching gels. Applying Vitamin E to irritated or burned gums will help them heal faster. And when you want to whiten your teeth choose a natural teeth whitening product that wont hurt your gums and will still give you bright white teeth. Over Bleaching Harms Your Teeth And Gums Many people who find themselves bleaching their teeth often with DIY kits or getting bleaching treatments from the dentist dont realize the damage that they are doing to their teeth. In some cases the damage is permanent. A lot of people who bleach their teeth using home kits made from gel trays and whitening strips dont realize that those products arent meant to be used multiple times in a short time frame. Just because bleaching kits are sold over the counter in drugstore that doesnt mean they are safe to on a regular basis. They can cause very serious damage to your teeth. Whiter Teeth But Damaged Teeth Using teeth whitening kits over and over will slowly strip the enamel off of your teeth. Once the enamel is gone the teeth will become stained very often because there will be no protective enamel left to cover the tooth. As the enamel wears away the caustic chemicals in the kit can even damage the pulp of the tooth. Damaged pulp will cause pain and it can weaken the tooth and eventually cause tooth loss. A better way to whiten your teeth is to use natural cleansers that wont wear away the enamel of your teeth.

Gum Damage Over bleaching your teeth can also cause serious gum damage. When the gums are exposed to the whitening gels in either at home bleaching kits or dentist given whitening treatments they can become irritated or red and raw. If the bleaching gels sit on gums for just a few minutes they can be burned by the whitening gel. Burned gums can blister and become very painful making it hard to eat and drink. Your mouth will look terrible and hurt badly. Your gums could even become infected. Over bleaching is a problem that happens to many people who arent careful about what products they use to whiten their teeth.
