The secret to a beautiful smile.
One of the best things in life are free, and you can include a beautiful smile which uplifts someone else’s day. A smile is one of the perfect gesture that provides positivity even in the most difficult times. According to psychology, smiling in a challenging moment or weird event makes a person feel better and makes every situation lighter. Moreover, in the world of dating, smiling plays a big part to know if the person is interested or not. So, the real question is, how to keep a brighter smile?
Enhancing your smile is something to do with the oral hygiene, and how a person takes care of his teeth. The human teeth are naturally clean and close to pearly white teeth, but because of individual lifestyles like smoking and consuming some food and beverages, our teeth may discolor. According to dentists, there is no standard system to identify the shade of the teeth. Instead, they use a universal shade guidelines which classified into four categories. Categories are as follows:
• Reddish brown
• Reddish yellow
• Reddish gray.
Traditionally, when a patient walks into the dentist office and asks for teeth whitening procedure, the approach used will be dependent on the above categories. Every patient’s teeth are unique. Therefore the process varies as well. On the other hand, because of the high-end technology and series of experiments towards a whitening solution, DaVinci Teeth Whitening system do not require a meticulous technique because it can work for all categories. Moreover, it has been proven that In-office teeth whitening approaches are the most efficient amongst teeth whitening products available in the market. How? The method provides the fastest result of them all because it can lighten the teeth up to 8 shades in just one session, not to mention the efficacy, safety, and comfort during the procedure.
How does DaVinci Teeth Whitening differ from the other whitening products or system?
There is a study published about bleaching solutions used in teeth whitening, and how does the chemical works when applied to the teeth repeatedly. All products that are available for the public are cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and American Dental Association (ADA). Thus, it is safe for everyone to use. However, individuals tend to use it regularly without the guidance of professionals, and this is where the problem comes in. Based on the published articles, investigators found out that there are an adverse reaction to various whitening products but rarely reported by the consumers. In addition to this, FDA and ADA always emphasized that before purchasing any whitening products, consulting to your dentist is vital.
With the typical teeth bleaching agents, one of the active ingredients is hydrogen peroxide. In the United Kingdom, the concentration of hydrogen peroxide to any teeth whitening products is less than 0.1%, but in the US, it can get high as 3.5%. The 0.1% hydrogen peroxide concentration is the safest level without the common side effects such as tooth sensitivity, and oral soft tissues or palate irritations. The oral hygienist also emphasizes that when it comes to whitening products, it does not help the teeth to whiten because it only remove the stain, and these products are recommended by the dentist after the procedure is done. Technically, teeth whitening products will not give you the same result as with the in-office teeth whitening system. Why not? When you see your dentist, the in-depth assessment will be conducted which allow them to identify the type of approach they will use. An in-office teeth whitening method uses a teeth whitening gel which consists of 25% to 30% hydrogen peroxide concentration. The hydrogen peroxide concentration is the required level to achieve the necessary shade of the teeth in the safest way. Talking about DaVinci Teeth Whitening, it has a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide, but other ingredients are organic which makes it harmless to use. Furthermore, the dentist will be using a blue LED light to activate the bleaching agent to speed up the process. Depending on the teeth stain origin (tobacco, trauma, aging, beverage and medication), it could take 15 to 60 minutes to complete a teeth whitening session.

How hydrogen peroxide and other bleaching agents whiten the teeth?
The Carbamide peroxide serves as the primary ingredient in any bleaching agents available which break down into hydrogen peroxide and urea in a water-based solution. These chemicals were used primarily for teeth whitening, but some studies suggest that it can aid in relieving minor inflammation in the oral mucosa. The study shows that when a person uses a whitening product that contains 3% of hydrogen peroxide concentration repeatedly for over a month, the tooth enamel hardness will be compromised. It has been observed that when a bleaching agent applied to teeth, it cracks down the stain efficiently, and when it is frequently used, it can destroy the tooth protective coating layer which eventually impair the tooth.
Most of the teeth whitening products such as toothpaste consist a lower concentration of bleaching agents compared to the whitening products used by the dentists, but if it is regularly applied, it can cause gum irritation and tooth sensitivity. Home use products effect may not be noticeable because it can cause mild erosion only on the tooth, but a consumer may observe the adverse effect after a month or two added by researchers.
