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.
If you are living with inflammatory back pain (IBP), making some changes in your lifestyle can actually ease some of your daily discomfort. These small adjustments can help alleviate some of the frustrations you feel. Although some advice may relate to short- or long-term mechanical back pain, this section is primarily designed to help people with back pain of inflammatory origin.
Many people experience such severe back pain that they experience difficulties in doing simple activities that are part of the routine, such as driving, shopping, exercising or even work. But in some people, low back pain can even disrupt one of the noblest hours, which is quiet sleep. The human body needs between seven and eight hours of sleep per night to have a great function.
