How much your teeth can be lightened depends on many factors, some that can be controlled (such as the choice by a whitening method or not, or the percentage of active principle in the product) and others not (such as the natural color of your teeth or their response to whitening).

  • A light activated whitening session, sometimes called assisted whitening (office whitening), can cost $ 500 or more and result in much whiter teeth instantly.
    - A custom tray created by your dentist for home whitening costs around $ 300 and typically, you should use it for many hours during the day or at night for two weeks.
    - Bleaching products available from pharmacies or retail stores may contain lower concentrations of the active ingredient compared
    - Whitening tooth creams also help in removing blemishes and keep teeth always white at affordable cost.

Most whitening is not permanent.

Non-smokers who do not drink coffee or tea, often do not notice the change in tooth coloration after the clearing, up to five years. Your results will depend on your eating habits and foods. If, as with many people, you find it difficult to eliminate coffee, tea, soft drinks with cola, red wine, or other staining items from your diet you may need to touch up regularly.

Scientists may have found two new forms of HIV prevention

Scientists may have found two new forms of HIV prevention

German and American scientists have released two studies in which they report the discovery of new approaches to combat the AIDS epidemic in the world. Although they differ from each other, both forms aim to destroy the potential for infection of semen, the main vector of STIs. Sperm contain specific proteins that form the so-called amyloid fibers, which increase the chances of virus transmission during unprotected sex by up to 10,000 times.
