Taking a Closer Look at Teeth Whitening and Its Benefits

Teeth whitening

Everyone would love a white and natural-looking smile. But with drinks like coffee, soda, tea and red wine in our everyday diets, it’s impossible to keep your teeth a brilliant white without help. Like sponges, teeth absorb anything with color through pores, which makes foods like dark berries, wine, and coffee active sources of discolored teeth. Tooth stains never go away unless they’re actively removed. And they cannot be removed without properly formulated teeth whitening gel or other prescribed treatments.

Contrary to popular belief, teeth whitening doesn’t damage your teeth. If used as instructed, professional teeth whitening is safe. The treatments temporarily open up the pores in your teeth and lift stains using active ingredients. After a whitening session, the teeth naturally regenerate themselves.

What are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening?

It Enhances your Appearance

Your smile communicates a lot about you, and it’s one of the first features people notice. Having white teeth is an attractive characteristic, as it indicates good oral hygiene and that you care about looking presentable. A bright smile makes you come off as a confident, healthy, and happy person. Those around you will respond well!

Whitening Increases Confidence

Although confidence isn’t built entirely around your appearance, it’s influenced by it. The way you feel about yourself influences how you approach your surroundings, and a confidence boost is always beneficial. Knowing you have a bright, encouraging smile, you’re more likely to feel more capable and confident in your work and social circle.

Whitening is Easy to Maintain

Take-home maintenance kits include custom-made trays, whitening gel, or pens you can use to easily conserve newly whitened teeth. In order to keep your teeth white, use the kits as prescribed by your dental expert and avoid the following for the best results:

  • Staining foods like dark berries
  • Staining drinks like coffee or soda
  • Tobacco products

During the whitening procedure, a protective layer on the tooth called the acquired pellicle is removed to eliminate the stains residing on it. It takes up to 24 hours for the barrier to regenerate itself. During this time, it’s important to avoid substances that will stain the newly whitened surface.

Oral Health Care Improvements

Coincidentally, patients who have their teeth whitened show an improvement in their oral health care routine. Experiencing the advantages of whitened teeth leads to new habits of brushing, flossing, and visiting a dentist regularly. With a newfound respect and dedication to oral health, symptoms of gum disease and plaque buildup are less likely to occur.

Getting a perfect, white smile doesn’t require photo filters or better lighting. It’s about picking the best option so you can have a stunning smile 24/7.
