Are Your Teeth As White As They Could Be?
Our smile says a lot about us and white, healthy looking teeth are a vital component of a good smile. We are all born with lovely white teeth, and we would all like them to stay that way. Unfortunately though, there are many things in modern life that can cause discolouration and staining of the teeth. Smoking gradually darkens the teeth, and drinks such as tea, coffee and red wine are the main causes of teeth staining for most of us. Foods that have bright colours in them, like curries and pasta sauces, are also a major source of discolouration.
How Can I Keep My Teeth White?
The most important step to keeping your teeth white is to keep them clean. Keeping your teeth clean is essential as the layer of plaque that accumulates every day traps stains and keeps them close to the surface of the teeth. The longer the plaque remains on the teeth the higher the chance of the stain penetrating the enamel of the tooth surface and becoming permanent. The crystalline structure of the tooth enamel allows small molecules to penetrate and absorb into the surface.
This layer of plaque harbours bacteria as well as stains. Some of these bacteria cause tooth decay, which leads to discolouration and disfiguration of the teeth. It is essential not to let these bacteria on your teeth in the first place by limiting the amount of sweet foods and drinks you consume.
Cleaning Your Teeth
It is vital that you clean your teeth thoroughly every day, preferably twice a day. You should use
a toothbrush and dental floss, and your teeth should be cleaned with a systematic approach. You should
use short strokes near the gum to try and dislodge any built up plaque, and longer, vertical strokes
towards the edge of the tooth. Horizontal strokes should be kept to an absolute minimum as this can
cause tooth abrasion which can lead to hypersensitivity.
If you are using an electric or battery powered toothbrush you simply need to hold the brush against the surface of the tooth for about 10 seconds, repeating the process for each surface of each tooth.
Whether you are using a manual or an electric toothbrush you should start in the top corner of your mouth and work your way to the opposite corner, repeating for the bottom of your mouth.
Zero Peroxide is a home teeth whitening kit that uses a completely peroxide free formula. Zero Peroxide is made with sodium bicarbonate which has long been recognised for its whitening properties. It is the same ingredient that is used in whitening toothpastes, although the concentration allowed in these toothpastes is so low it has little or no effect. Zero Peroxide contains a much higher concentration of sodium bicarbonate that is still 100% safe and 100% legal.
Main Benefits of Zero Peroxide
Zero peroxide has many benefits. These include
- Fast, visible results
- No irritation or sensitivity
- 100% safe and guaranteed
- Approved by Dentists
- Affordable - less than £1 per treatment
What is included
When you buy Zero Peroxide teeth whitening kit everything you need for whiter teeth is included. Below is a description of all the components of the kit.
2 x 10ml Non-Peroxide Gels
The gel included in the kit is based on sodium bicarbonate and not peroxide. It is fully compliant with EU teeth whitening regulations, but more importantly it causes no irritation and there are no side effects. Sodium bicarbonate has been proven to whiten teeth in clinical trials and the gel also includes natural ingredients such as pomegranate and chamomile for faster whitening and better all-round oral health.
Luxury Mouth Tray
Most teeth whitening kits come with a warm and form mouth tray. This involves putting the tray in
boiling water and then inserting it into your mouth, so that the melting silicone provides a mould
for your teeth. As you can imagine there are a few problems with this method. It is easy to see that
putting a tray that has been sitting in boiling water into your mouth is going to be quite painful!
If you have sensitive teeth they are very difficult and painful to use.
Zero Peroxide uses a luxury mouth tray which requires no moulding; therefore no boiling water is needed. It is made from super soft silicone so it is more comfortable to use, and the tray also has ledges on the front to rest your lips on, preventing an aching mouth or jaw.
LED Accelerator Light
The LED Accelerator Light helps speed up the oxidising process and contributes to the whitening effect of the gel. It is designed to be used with the luxury mouth tray and dramatically reduces the time it takes to whiten teeth.
Teeth Whitening Touch-Up Pen
This touch-up pen allows you to whiten on the move! If your teeth could do with a whiten after smoking, drinking or eating staining foods such as curry, the touch-up pen will quickly and discreetly keep your teeth sparkling white.
Mouth Tray Holder
Hygiene is an important issue when whitening your teeth, so this mouth tray holder is included as standard to keep your mouth tray clean and germ free between uses.
This unique PVC travel bag is waterproof and is ideal for storing your Zero Peroxide either on your travels or in the bathroom.
Tooth Shade Guide and Instructions
The tooth shade guide lets you keep track of your progress and you can see just how well your teeth are whitening! Full detailed instructions are also included so that you know exactly how to use the kit to its full potential.
