Colgate teeth whitening gel is one type of teeth bleaching solution that is on the market today which is much less expensive than going to a dentist’s office to have a bleaching treatment done with custom mouth pieces.
Getting the bleaching process done in a dentist’s office usually costs several hundred dollars compared to the forty to fifty dollars required to buy Colgate teeth whitening gel. In addition, this gel is more effective and affordable that teeth whitening strips, which often cost twenty dollars for one treatment set and do not cover the teeth as well as the Colgate teeth whitening gel.
One benefit to using Colgate teeth whitening gel compared to other gels on the market is that it does not require the use of a mouth piece for the solution to be applied to the teeth. Colgate teeth whitening gel is painted on the teeth after the teeth are brushed and rinsed and then is left on for thirty minutes while the individual is free to do anything except eat, drink or smoke during that time. Once the time is up, then the individual brushes his or her teeth again to remove the Colgate teeth whitening gel solution from the teeth.
Although this is one method that the gel can be applied, there are also Colgate teeth whitening gel kits that provide a mouth piece that can be custom fitted to the mouth, similar to the Rembrandt teeth whitening gel, which is actually now sold under another name as the Rembrandt brand has been sold.
Once the mold has been made of the teeth, then the Colgate teeth whitening gel is applied inside of the mouth guards and the guards are placed in the mouth over the teeth. Many customers prefer this method since it is cleaner and less likely that the unpleasant taste of the gel will remain in their mouths while waiting for the product to work. In addition, less of the product is swallowed, which also makes customers more comfortable with it.
The Colgate teeth whitening gel solutions do not have as many clear options for different concentrations of bleach solution like Opalescence gels do, offering a thirty-five percent concentration down to a ten percent concentration, which lowers the price too. However, Colgate teeth whitening gel solutions do offer a minty flavor which helps to make the entire experience more enjoyable while waiting for a dazzling smile.
