Tooth whitening has taken the world of cosmetic dentistry by storm. Now considered a necessary part of the grooming process, it has people young and old, male and female, flocking to their dentists for a smile “tune-up.”
The benefits of a bright, vibrant and healthy smile are numerous, and it affects us more than we realize. Often the first impression we make is with our smile as we reach out and attempt to connect with others. Having a healthy and attractive smile draws others in, makes us more approachable, and improves relationships with others as we flash our pearly whites.
Let’s take a look at how tooth whitening can benefit you. If you are sitting on the fence as to whether whitening is worth it, consider these benefits:
Tooth whitening enhances your overall appearance. Your teeth may be straight and your gums and teeth healthy, but you are not immune to the damage that can be done to teeth just by daily living and food choices. Items like coffee, tea, red wine, and blackberries can stain teeth, making them less vibrant than before. While whitening toothpaste and bleaches are somewhat effective at removing the outer layers of staining on teeth, professional tooth whitening safely and gently removes layer after layer of staining deep into the surface of the tooth, leaving you with a gleaming smile that enhances your whole appearance. People will be drawn to you as they behold your beautiful smile.
Tooth whitening will boost your self-confidence. As a result of all the extra attention you’ll be getting, your self-esteem will take a boost as well. Sales deals at work will close, friends and family will keep telling you how marvelous you look, and you’ll behold someone who looks younger and more vibrant than ever in the mirror at home. You’ll be looking and feeling younger and more confident than you have in years.
Tooth whitening takes attention off fine lines and wrinkles. Having a whiter and brighter smile will shift the focus on your face. People will be less likely to notice fine lines and wrinkles that have cropped up in recent years as they behold a youthful and vibrant smile that draws them in.
Tooth whitening is surprisingly inexpensive. Unlike plastic surgery, tooth whitening procedures are affordable for most people. Whitening is a huge update to your appearance while saving you both time and money. There is no recovery time from whitening procedures, and you leave your dentist’s office with renewed confidence in your appearance.
Tooth whitening makes you more attractive. Whiter teeth will make you feel more attractive, and this will affect how you interact with the world around you. Having whiter teeth is an indicator to others that you take care of yourself, making you more attractive to potential partners. You’ll have people knocking on your door for all sorts of social and professional engagements.
Tooth whitening helps you to shine in professional situations. Having confidence in your smile will help you to excel in your professional life. Smiling gives you a competitive edge on others around you; with your engaging demeanor and bright countenance, you’ll be offered promotions and opportunities that otherwise might pass you by. Take advantage of these opportunities and excel as you brighten everyone’s day.
Tooth whitening does not damage your teeth!
One big misconception about tooth whitening is that it damages tooth enamel. This is simply not true; whitening removes layers of stains left there by pigmented foods; these foods have not done damage to your teeth, and removing those surface layers of staining will not strip enamel from your teeth either. Whitening will leave you with a cleaner, healthier smile.
