Basic wear and tear as well as again can make anyone’s teeth yellow, but that doesn’t mean you have to accept it! Teeth whitening is a relatively inexpensive way to enhance a faded smile.
The strongest and fastest whitening solutions are only available from your dentist using a process called “power bleaching”. This process can lighten your teeth 3-8 shades in as little as an hour – and last up to 2 years.
Whitening that is purchased in a drugstore typically comes in one size and strength that fits all types of teeth, yet everyone’s mouth is different. This can result in uneven whitening, some teeth appearing perfectly white, and other will still show stains. Professional whitening treatments ensure that each tooth is whitened evenly so that your entire smile retains the same level of brightness.
Patients with yellowed or stained smiles tend to smile with their mouth closed, leading others to perceive them as unfriendly or lacking in self-esteem. Having your teeth professionally whitened will encourage you to present your best smile to the world, resulting in increased confidence.
Patients find this increase in confidence helps them become more outgoing, and they generally perform better in job interviews and have better dates after having their teeth whitened.
Teeth whitening is the most popular and cost-effective way to dramatically enhance your smile – and studies have found teeth whitening to be completely safe when used as directed.
