When toothpastes are no longer capable of giving people that shiny and bright smile, teeth whitening is the only alternative left.
Having the perfect white teeth have long been advertised by toothpaste and other tooth products. Due to the aggressive marketing that they use, it is no wonder why a lot of people are finding ways to whiten their teeth more.
One of the options that they have is teeth whitening. The perfect candidates for teeth whitening are those that have teeth that are discolored because of age, due to possible smoking and many other factors.
Once teeth whitening was found out to work effectively, more and more people are enticed to try them out for themselves. And due to this need, there are now a growing number of ways in which people can have their teeth whitened.
Some of these are:
1. Teeth whitening systems.
This is the process of teeth whitening that you can do yourself and at home. Teeth whitening systems usually consist of whitening gels that needs to be placed in your mouthpiece for specific number of times. In order to maintain its effectiveness, you have to make sure that you comply with the required amount and time that is dictated in the whitening system.
If you want to have your own whitening system, you need to have a minimum of $500 set aside as a budget. You can also opt for those that cost less than $100 but they do not work as well as its expensive counterpart.
Before you buy the whitening system, it is advised that you check out their labels first. Most of them are already approved by the American Dental Association so you need to look for their seal of approval.
Another thing that you need to keep in mind is to follow instructions to the letter. Do not go beyond what is required. You can always consult a dentist if you have queries regarding the whitening system that you are using.
2. Teeth whitening done by professionals.
This is by far the most effective means of teeth whitening. The procedure is assisted by a dentist so you can be assured that everything will be done properly.
There are steps that are needed to be taken before the actual teeth whitening. You first have to be examined by a dentist so they will decide if you need teeth whitening or not. Then he or she will suggest what type of teeth whitening will work effectively for you.
The dentist will then tell you what you can expect from the procedure. Every whitening session varies from case to case. There are those that tend to be more successful than the rest. This will all depend on the condition that the teeth and how effective the procedure will be.
Before an individual is treated for teeth whitening, the dentist will first have to clean the teeth to prepare them for the cleaning process. Then cavities are filled in. The teeth whitening process will begin once your dentist has checked that your gums are as healthy as can be.
The two types of teeth whitening is not an assurance that your teeth will remain permanently white. Take note that the process is only temporary. Teeth whitening needs to be done repeatedly so that you can maintain that shiny white for longer times.]]>
People often tend to beautify and, at times, exaggerate the alluring portions of their body. A worthy example of this is breast plastic surgery, which contemporary women opt for in order to enhance their appearance. Breast plastic surgery has several forms, namely breast implant or enhancement, breast lift, and breast reduction. Each type has its own significance and is employed under different circumstances. While breast implant (also known as breast augmentation) is used to enlarge the size of a woman’s breast, breast reduction is often necessary when abnormally huge breasts result in orthopedic pain.
Breast implant has two primary types, namely saline implants and silicone gel implants. However, advanced research is bound to make other filler types available. A staggering fact is that breast augmentation is the third most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the United States. Unequivocally, this is an absolute evidence of women’s obsession with their looks, and also a substantial proof as to the safety and efficacy of the procedure.
Breast lift is a surgical procedure designed to reshape sagging breasts, in order to give them a more appealing look. Primarily used to improve breast drooping, breast lift procedure can be combined with breast augmentation to improve volume as well. The procedure typically involves incisions around the base of the breast and, therefore, results in scarring.
Breast reduction is another surgical procedure which entails the reduction of the size of breasts by removing fat, glandular tissue, and skin. Breast reduction is primarily used for women with huge, sagging breasts, as the weight of their breasts may cause orthopedic, circulation, and breathing problems. Though relatively rare, obese men with women-like breasts may also opt for breast reduction surgery.
Whatever be the type of breast plastic surgery, people are increasingly opting for it. Since aesthetics play a major role in the choice of people we hang out with, women see no harm in enhancing the alluring portions of their body if it were at the cost of minimal scarring.]]>
The functional advantages of contact lenses over glasses can be felt in areas like sports, working in humid conditions and also in occupations where glasses can be very inconvenient and may not be compatible when using equipment like special headgears. Contact lenses also offer aesthetic advantages as they do not alter the image of the person wearing it.
When contact lenses are worn correctly on the cornea of the eye, the vision is very similar to the natural vision. The objects are seen in the right size and position without any kind of distortion of the image. When glasses are worn, the distance between the glasses and the eye vary making the objects appear smaller or larger than the actual size, position etc.
Contact lenses are not altered by bodily movements, as in the case of sports or similar kind of activities. They remain stable providing stable and clear vision to the wearer. When glasses are worn, the vision is unstable while moving or running, in turn affecting the performance of the wearer.
Contact lenses provide a better and wider peripheral vision than the glasses. Contact lenses move with the movement of the eyes and the wearer always looks through the clearest part of the lens called the optic zone. When glasses are worn, it blocks the peripheral vision. When the eyes move to the sides, the sight is far from the optic center leading to distorted and blurred vision.
Contact lenses do not steam up due to body heat or perspiration. They also neither fog when exposed to cold weather nor get splattered in the rain. Glasses on the other hand fog up and the wearer cannot see completely during rain pour.
Contact lenses do not leave marks on the nose and are very comfortable to wear. No pressure is felt on the ears, temple, or nose unlike the glasses. Also glasses slide down from the nose during perspiration.
As told before, contact lenses do not alter the appearance of the person. They are boon for children who are often picked up at school for wearing glasses. Contact lenses provide both physical and psychological comfort to the wearer.
Also, after cataract operations, contact lenses provide the necessary protection more than the glasses. Contact lenses offer adequate correction when the visual acuity of the eyes are more than 2.5 diopters, which is not possible with the glasses.]]>

Wintertime leaves a lot of us feeling blah and washed out. Our skin gets dry and pale, our eyes can seem dull and lifeless – and let’s not even get started with the foods we eat. Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas parties and New Year’s Eve – all came with plenty of rich, decadent dishes and calorie-laden cocktails. It’s no wonder that by the time spring arrives, we could really use a pick-me-up.
And those are just a few of the things a quick cleanse can remedy. Have you been plagued by chronic constipation, allergies, sinusitis, or any other chronic aches and pains? If you’re tired of relying on over-the-counter medications to make it through day to day life, there might just be an unexpected culprit – blockage(s) in your body’s elimination system.
Basically, what this means is that you might be suffering from mucus and other wastes building up in your body’s major routes of elimination:
• Your lungs
• Your pores
• Your kidneys, and
• Your bowels.
Getting rid of this waste build-up will better allow your body to get the most out of your regular diet – a bit like the performance difference you see between low- and high-octane fuel.
Important Things to Consider Before You Begin…
Of course, the three day cleansing diet isn’t for everyone. Some people may be too weak or may suffer from conditions that make the cleansing diet too dangerous to undertake. For this reason, it’s important to stress how vital it is to first consult with your doctor before you begin a new dietary regiment.
Also, I can’t stress enough that this is a diet to help you cleanse your system out, not too help you lose weight. Misuse could be extremely hazardous to your health!
Now that we’ve covered the basics, let’s delve on into the specifics of the cleansing diet.
The Diet in a Nutshell…
While you may come across several different variations of the 3 day cleansing diet, here are some of the things they’ll all have in common:
• You’ll have to drink at least 8-10 glasses of water each day
• When it comes to foods, be ready to restrict your diet to 5-6 servings of fruits and vegetables each day, preferably raw or steamed.
• In case you didn’t get the hint, that means NO meat.
• If you do opt for breads or cereals (and you probably shouldn’t), it’s important that you only chose whole grains
• During this 72 hour period, it’s important to avoid sugars, coffees, and sodas. If you’re afraid you’ll suffer from headaches from caffeine withdrawals, you might want to begin slowly reducing your coffee intake prior to the “fast.”
The Cleansing Diet in Action…
While there are many different variations of the cleansing diet being touted by various different experts, most of them follow a pattern that looks something like this:
Day 1 – A complete food fast, water only
Day 2 – 5 or 6 servings of fruit and fruit juice only (water is still a must)
Day 3 – 5 or 6 servings of vegetables and veggie juice only (water is still a must)
Day 4 – Go back to your regular diet
Of course, variations do exist, and with a little research, you should have no trouble finding one suitable for your own unique needs. Three days later, a whole new, detoxified woman will be looking back at you in the mirror!]]>
Teeth whitening kits can cause a variety of problems. Problems can occur in accidentally swallowing the bleaching product, faster decay and damaging gums.
The peroxide used in teeth whitening can cause damage to the nerves and the fleshy tissue in your gums. When the nerves are damaged, you will have an increased sensitivity to hot and cold sensations. Laser teeth whitening is not much better; the peroxide is still applied to the teeth, only this time the laser causes it to penetrate more deeply into the tooth. Laser teeth whitening can cause even more damage than just applying a tooth-whitening product to the surface. These problems, if left untreated can lead to tooth decay and in rare cases sometimes loss of the tooth altogether.
The mouth is a very sensitive area of the body. The harsh chemicals involved in teeth whitening should be a last resort after you have tried over the counter treatments such as toothpastes. However, there are a few precautions you can follow to ensure that the whitening process goes smoothly. First, if you have any current problems with your teeth, wait until they are taken care of by a dental professional before whitening your teeth. Never start the process with open wounds in your mouth, such as stitches or ulcers. This can lead to worse problems than you started with, and the chemicals can eat away at the tissue and cause a great deal of pain.
An alternative to chemical teeth whitening is having veneers put on your teeth. Many patients have opted to go this route, despite its cost, and have been very pleased with the results they have achieved. In addition, many celebrities achieve their seemingly perfect smile through veneers rather than chemical teeth whitening. These will remain white and are not porous like your regular teeth. They come in a variety of materials and while they do tend to cost more than teeth whitening treatments, the upside is they last a great deal longer than the results you achieve from a chemical tooth whitening process.]]>
