Teeth Whitening and Its Advantages

Teeth whitening is a great way to improve the appearance of your smile. When patients consider cosmetic procedures, teeth whitening is often at the top of their list. It is a relatively simple process that removes stains and discolorations from the surfaces of your teeth. The treatment may involve a whitening gel or whitening solution, specialized mouth trays, or whitening strips. Your dentist can help you determine the cause of your teeth discoloration and advise you on which teeth whitening treatment is best for your smile.

There are many benefits of teeth whitening. Patients who whiten their teeth typically experience the following:

Confidence Boost

There are many reasons why people choose to get their teeth whitened. A whiter smile can dramatically change your appearance and help boost your confidence. 

Improve Oral Health

Teeth whitening can improve your oral health in many ways. For example, it can reverse the effects of teeth staining. Stained teeth can ruin your appearance and make you feel self-conscious. If you have stained or discolored teeth, teeth whitening can help to dramatically improve their appearance. After teeth whitening, you can expect your teeth to look whiter and healthier.

Fast and Painless Procedures

If you have sensitive teeth, your dentist may offer a treatment, such as desensitizing gel that can minimize pain during the procedure. Most teeth whitening procedures take no longer than an hour, although some treatments may take up to two hours.

Your dentist will apply the whitening gel to your teeth, and a laser or light will be shined in to enhance the effects of the whitening treatment. Many people report little to no pain or discomfort after the procedure.

Affordable Pricing

Many patients find teeth whitening to be an affordable option. Professional whitening treatment is one of the most effective ways to lift stains caused by tobacco, coffee, wine, and aging.

The professional teeth whitening treatment uses a stronger whitening agent to lift deep stains and can make your teeth several shades whiter in just one appointment.

Lasting Results

If your goal is to achieve lasting results, then teeth whitening is the right choice for you. Compared with other cosmetic procedures, teeth whitening results typically last longer.

Teeth whitening can help patients feel more confident when smiling, talking, and laughing. This increased confidence can translate into a greater willingness to be social, which can help people develop stronger friendships, build professional or romantic relationships, and improve their personal and professional lives.

Many Convenient Options

Teeth whitening can brighten your smile in as little as one hour, or you can whiten your smile in the comfort of your own home. There are many whitening options available, and your dentist will help you determine the best method for you.

At-home teeth whitening kits are convenient, but they can also require more applications. Your dentist can supervise professional teeth whitening treatments to ensure safe and effective whitening. Your dentist may also apply a desensitizing agent to your teeth prior to whitening to make the procedure more comfortable.
