Over the Counter Teeth Whitening Products: Effective and Convenient in Central London

Over time in central London, our teeth can become very stained and yellowish and worse still if you’re a smoker. So it’s no surprise then that over-the-counter (OTC) teeth whitening kits have become very popular over the past 10 years, as have their prices. They are very easy to use, you decide when you want to touch up your teeth and you can get great results although there is an element of trial and error before you find the right one. Many of the ‘brand’ companies have jumped on the whitening bandwagon too and offer superb kits. The cheapest option are whitening toothpastes, these can be found almost anywhere. They contain all the ingredients required in a toothpaste, only with added peroxide. The most common kit contains bleaching trays into which, a gel is added and then placed over the teeth for around 30 minutes. Another quick and simple method is a whitening pen- you simple write the gel over the teeth which is more effective when used on small areas. But the most popular to date are self dissolving strips. Once they have been applied to the teeth, they simply bleach the teeth and then dissolve in about 10 minutes, leaving no mess; and the price of these little beauties? Like anything that floods a market, prices have dropped dramatically and you can get a good, comprehensive kit for under £50. Try one. It can give you back a lot of self confidence when you smile.
