Exploring Dental Tool Improvements

Hi, it's Mia Armonde here to talk to you about family dentistry. As my small family grew into a large one, I found myself at the dental office on a regular basis. Every six months, the kids would go into the dentist for a cleaning or repairs to their teeth. During that time, I took an interest in the various ways the dental tools were evolving. Tools used in the dental industry have grown in leaps and bounds in the last few decades. For example, my kids went from hearing the dental drill to wearing headphones that completely canceled out the sound. Each time we go back into the dentist, I take a close look at the improvements that have arisen since the last visit. The results are astounding. I will cover my findings on this site, so you can also enjoy the improvements to dental tools and techniques.

3 Benefits Of Teeth Whitening Kits

Dentist Blog

Teeth whitening is an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure for a variety of reasons. Some people who undergo whitening may be former smokers whose teeth feature heavy stains because of it. Others may simply want to reverse the effects of insufficient brushing and flossing. Whatever their motivation, many dental patients now have easy access to teeth whitening kits through their dentist. Take a look below for just three of the biggest benefits of using one.


Teeth whitening kits are so commonly used now that it's hardly a hassle to get a hold of one. In fact, you may not even have to plan an additional trip to your dentist's office. After consulting with your dentist, simply have as many kits as you need mailed to you. Then, rather than having to schedule a set time to visit your dentist and have your teeth whitened at the office, you can apply the whitening strips at your leisure. Most dentists recommend performing the whitening procedure sometime before bed for maximum effect.

Ease of Use

While it may be convenient to obtain teeth whitening kits, many people still wonder how easy they are to use. Fortunately, whitening kits make the procedure easy for everyone, even those who have never used a kit before. Simply remove the top and bottom whitening strips from their respective packaging and put them firmly in place, making sure that the gel side of each strip makes contact with your teeth. Many dentists advise against brushing your teeth before doing this so as not to remove too much enamel. Also, if the instructions on the kit itself are unclear, it is important to consult with your dentist about how long the strips should remain in place. Some kits may only require five minutes of application while others stipulate one hour of continuous use. 

Improved Self-Esteem

In addition to being convenient to purchase and easy to use, teeth whitening kits can have a remarkable effect on your self-esteem. People with whiter, brighter smiles naturally tend to smile more, which gives those around them the impression of confidence and friendliness. While having whiter teeth might not seem like a huge deal at first, many people who undergo teeth whitening often report an improved sense of self-worth, as well as less anxiety when interacting with others.

If you are self-conscious about stained or discolored teeth, consider asking your dentist about whether a teeth whitening kit is an appropriate solution.
