There are many methods available, each one better than the last since the latest technology is applied with every new product. The results with the chemical bleaches are fast and dazzling. Nonetheless, today the global market is shifting towards natural (read, without chemicals) products.

This is why there is a great emphasis on developing and promoting natural teeth whitening products vis-à-vis the standard bleaching agents that are used, i.e. hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide.


The trend for natural teeth whitening is growing and in response to the growing demand there is a lot of improvement in these natural products. The most common of all are the toothpaste with herbal ingredients that help removing plaque, and stains from the enamel over a period of time. Some of these ingredients are bamboo powder, silica, calcium carbonate, sodium chloride and so on. These are great products which do work very well. However, they are slow in showing results and need to be used regularly.

1. Safe – the first and foremost on the list is that these natural teeth whitening products are very safe as compared to their chemical counterparts.
