A bright smile gives the impression of vitality, radiant health and happiness, so it’s hardly surprising that people are looking for ways to have whiter teeth. From high-profile celebrities to office employees, a whiter shade of teeth is considered a cosmetic advantage.
Like hair and complexion, tooth colour also varies from patient to patient. Some teeth are naturally more yellow than others, while other teeth simply yellow over time. They may be due to ageing or eating and drinking certain foods and beverages. Stained teeth are some of the common aesthetic issues many adults are facing today. Fortunately, you don’t have to live with yellow teeth forever.
We’ve come a long way in oral care and cosmetic enhancement, and that includes helping you achieve a brighter, more radiant smile.
What’s the First Step?
Whitening your teeth is as easy as visiting your dentist for a treatment or using one of the at-home options available.
In-office bleaching is the fastest and most efficient way to whiten teeth. In the procedure, the dentist applies the gel directly to your teeth, in combination with heat, laser or a special light. The result may be apparent in only one 30 to 60-minute treatment.
While your teeth will be visibly whiter in one just visit, we may recommend using home whitening kits with custom-fitted trays to achieve long-term results.
Why Consider Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening has quickly gained popularity within a broader audience because of the upfront advantages – from cosmetic to emotional to financial.
Achieve a Healthier Looking Smile – Whiter teeth project youth, health and vitality. It is fascinating how a minor and subtle change in shade may light up the entire face to give you a healthier, more youthful appearance.
Enjoy greater self-confidence – Appearance often influences the way we feel about ourselves. With a brand new set of beautiful, brighter teeth, you will live every day feeling more attractive and confident.
Enhance your sociability – Greater self-confidence means more opportunities to interact with your peers and the opposite sex.
Detect dental problems sooner – There’s no substitute for regular dental check-ups. However, visiting your dentist for a whitening procedure increases the chance of detecting a major dental problem, such as gum disease.
Pay less – Teeth whitening is a relatively affordable dental cosmetic treatment that offers results.
Be generally happier and more successful – Some studies suggest a link between whiter, healthier-looking teeth and improved success in career and job interviews. While further investigation is needed to confirm these results, it’s easy to find support for this hypothesis from the reality we live in.
