Benefits of Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is often seen as a purely cosmetic procedure. Although it is true that teeth whitening primarily focuses on aesthetics, the effects of the procedure go past the look of your teeth. Some of the other benefits of teeth whitening include:
- Look up to 10 years younger
- Improve your self-esteem
- Remove awkwardness in social situations
- Motivation to adopt better oral care and hygiene
- Reason to smile more often
- and much more
OTC Whitening v. Professional Whitening
There are many over-the-counter teeth whitening products out there, making them easily accessible to many people. However, OTC whitening products are not recommended since they may end up doing more harm than good. Improper application may lead to even more stains. Some products are too strong for your teeth, which may lead to permanent damage if you decide to use them.
Professional teeth whitening is the safer and more effective solution. Aside from the fact that the results of professional teeth whitening last longer, your dentist will also choose a special formula that is best suited to the actual conditioning of your teeth. All of these factors gives you the peace of mind of knowing that the shade of white exhibited by your teeth is uniform, as well as knowing your teeth remain healthy throughout the procedure.
What to Expect
Teeth whitening is a fairly simple process. In many cases, you will only need to set one appointment, especially if you get teeth whitening services from your regular dentist since your dentist is already familiar with the condition of your teeth. The entire procedure usually only lasts for an hour.
After the procedure, you should instantly see the results you’ve been looking for. However, you will be asked to avoid food (black berries, tomato sauces, etc.) and beverages (coffee, tea, wine, etc.) that are known to cause stains. This is to help maintain your results.
