The bright white Hollywood smile is something that many people strive to achieve, and because of this, there are a number of treatments and trends available – both at home and in a London dental practice to help you get exactly that. Here we are going to look at the top 5 teeth whitening trends in 2019.

Whitening Strips

One of the most popular whitening trends to make its way to the UK in 2019 is whitening strips. These handy inventions can fit in your bag or a suitcase and can be used on the go to keep your teeth appearing healthy throughout the course of the day. These can be bought in your local health and beauty retailer and can be stored for as long as the instructions read. These can also be stored in a bathroom cupboard for the whole family to use, making this a worthwhile investment.

Charcoal Toothpaste

Another trend that has been around for a while is the charcoal toothpaste. This can be found either in a tube on its own, or infused within the bristles on the toothbrush to help get into the teeth and whiten them. Depending on the brand that you buy, this can either be washed off immediately or left for two to three minutes to get the best possible results for whitening. This helps to remove the stains from the surface of the tooth whilst maintaining the strength of the enamel as a result.

Coconut Oil

Yet another trend that has become highly popular in 2019 is the use of coconut oil for removing stains from the teeth. This oil pulling method can be done with coconut oil and involves swishing the oil around our mouth for up to five minutes. The oil then pulls the stains from the teeth and removes all the harmful bacteria in the mouth that can lead to a number of  problems, such as Streptococci. This will also help to prevent illnesses such as gum disease and tooth decay if used frequently, as this will help to keep bacteria at bay. Despite this being used on your teeth, there are also several other health benefits of coconut oil when used in cooking that can also benefit the teeth in the long term.

Chewing Gum

While this is not a substitute for brushing our teeth, there has been a sudden increase in the use of whitening chewing gum to keep your teeth clean throughout the course of the day. These can also be bought in your local health and beauty store and can be used after every meal to dislodge food from in the teeth to help keep the mouth fresh. This is convenient as it can be carried in a handbag and can be transported easily allowing you to keep your mouth clean at any point.

Hydrogen Peroxide

The final trend to keep your teeth clean is using hydrogen peroxide. Despite this chemical being used in multiple kinds of toothpaste, it can also be used to whiten teeth in the long term. By swishing this around our mouth, you can remove plaque that has built up and leave the surface of the tooth as clean as possible. This can be put in mouthwash also to give the teeth a deep clean without too many harsh chemicals.

Regardless of how you decide to brighten your teeth, it is important to ensure that you have enough research into every trend to ensure that they will work effectively. If you feel as though the surface of your teeth may be too brittle for such a procedure, then get in touch with your dentist to find out more.
