Overview about teeth whitening
Teeth whitening (also known as teeth bleaching) is a method that is applied to improve enamel color effectively and safely. However, to preserve the teeth white for as long as possible, you should perform oral hygiene regularly and have a proper diet.
Limit the use of drinks and foods that easily cause stained teeth such as coffee, tea, wine, ketchup, soy sauce, tobacco… You also need to brush your teeth at least 2 times a day with a soft bristle brush and suitable toothpaste.
Nowadays, there are 2 teeth whitening methods: at-home teeth whitening and teeth whitening at dental centers that last from 45 to 60 minutes. The time of teeth whitening depends on which method each person chooses.
How long is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening at home
Lots of people choose to have teeth whitening at home because this method does not take much time or cost too much, therefore, you can do it at home.
However, before having teeth whitening at home, you need to meet a dentist to have tartar removal (scaling), this is a prerequisite for your teeth to be as white as desired. Having tartar removal (scaling) will help the teeth whitening procedure to give the best result.
Not to mention, you need to go to the dentist to buy teeth whitening (bleaching) products as well as to take a tray made based on your teeth marks. Experts advise that you should not buy teeth whitening products from the Internet because you do not know the effects of these drugs as well as their origin. Using fake products might be harmful to your teeth and gums.
If you buy teeth whitening trays from other sources, their sizes might not be suitable for your teeth. You should buy whitening trays and whitening products at the dentist’s office and perform teeth whitening according to the dentist’s instructions.
Performing teeth whitening at home is very simple, you can do it in your spare time. First, you should apply teeth whitening products to the tray, then wear the tray on the jaw. Thanks to the teeth marks taken by the dentist, the size of the whitening tray is suitable for your tooth structure.
Hold for 1-2 hours for the whitening products to work, then rinse your mouth to clean your teeth. Apply this method 1-2 times/week. After 1-2 weeks, you will see a great improvement in the color of your teeth.
Although teeth whitening methods with whitening strips or pens at home can give long-lasting results, you have to wait for 2-4 weeks to see a noticeable difference in the color of your teeth. The reason is these methods are only applied to mildly stained teeth, in more severe cases, it is difficult to remove the stains on the teeth.
Besides, if you perform the method improperly or abuse these whitening methods, the gums and lips may also be damaged. Furthermore, if you apply teeth whitening methods with natural ingredients such as banana peels, strawberries, lemons, baking soda, etc., it is still effective but cannot be compared with the treatment at the dental clinic.
Performing teeth whitening at home can take a very long time to see results. However, if you use a teeth whitening tray persistently after 7 days, you will see big changes in the color of your teeth.
