If you are looking to whiten your teeth and are considering your options you might be asking yourself, does teeth bleaching work?
The short answer is yes, it does.
According to a study by a team at the University Dental Hospital of Manchester whitening your teeth using a bleaching solution is not only effective but also lasts longer than other whitening solutions.
During the study researchers found that subjects who were given a bleaching treatment for a 2-week period were able to improve the whiteness of their teeth by four shades and that 60% of this improvement lasted over a period of at least 6 months after the treatment stopped.
Teeth bleaching is an effective and proven way to whiten your teeth. One of the benefits of bleaching over other whitening techniques is that bleaching can actually achieve a lighter shade thank the one your original teeth had, even before getting yellower from smoking, drinking coffee or simply eating food. By using a more concentrated formula or by applying a lighter formula for longer periods of time you will be able to achieve exactly the shade of white you are looking for.
Bleaching treatments can be given at the dentist office and might vary from $300 to a $1000 or can be safely given by patients to themselves using an over-the-counter teeth whitening kit containing Carbamide Peroxide which is the chemical agent that all bleaching solutions are based on.
