    Over-the-counter teeth whitening products are all the rave these days due to the fact that dental consultations are not mandatory, and more importantly, the very low prices for these products all because of so many brands and varieties of kits to choose from.

    These teeth whitening solutions come in variety of forms and brands. The most common ones are trays/ strips, whitening toothpastes, dental flosses and mouth rinses. And the most convenient to carry around are gums and breath strips. On the brands, there sure are a lot of competitors, but only a few stand our when it comes to providing the most efficient and cost-effective solutions in whitening teeth. Denmat™, Crest™, Listerine™ , BriteSmile™, NiteWhite™, Opalescence™ and Colgate™ have the highest ranking reviews based on aggregate online store sales.

    But how exactly does teeth whitening products work? By reviewing closely the most common forms of take-home whitening products, all of them use an agent in the form of an abrasive additive that basically polishes stained teeth. The degree of concentration of the additive may be strong enough to carve and wear down the enamel of the tooth and may also damage the gum line. There have been cases wherein frequent use of whitening toothpastes have caused tooth abrasion.

    And tooth abrasion is a serious matter, and perhaps the most serious catalyst for the abrasion of teeth are overly compulsive brushing behaviors that cause friction to the teeth, and when paired with abuse of tooth whitening solutions, may wear out the surface of the tooth and expose the deeper parts of the tooth soon after. That is why it is advised that when using tooth whitening solutions, one should not eat citric fruits, as they may be a stronger catalyst for tooth erosion because of the strong acidic content of citric fruits.

    The most effective ways to prevent tooth erosion are:

    1. Avoid applying excessive amounts of teeth whitening products2. Avoid drinking and chewing acid-rich fluids and food.

    3. Brush and floss your teeth in moderation.

    4. Avoid smoking and drinking (especially red wine), as these two are the root causes of very yellow teeth.

    And, depending on how sensitive and prone to abrasion teeth are, before using at-home dental whitening solutions, it is better to consult a dentist on the current condition of your teeth. It is always better to come prepared.

    When buying over-the-counter tooth whitening products, it is imperative to check the label of the product if it has been sealed for approval by the American Dental Association (ADA). Some cheap products often hit shelves before the FDA has approved them. There have also been some instances of cheap imitations that do not help to whiten the teeth in any way. To make sure that you are buying authentic dental whitening products, buy from a respected drug store or from the dental clinic itself. You may also want to consult the internet for peer-based product reviews on whitening solutions that actually work.
