Getting your teeth whitened has many benefits. It is a great way to improve your smile, boost your self-confidence, as well as making your teeth healthier.
Why Would You Want to Whiten Your Teeth?
Your teeth can become stained or discolored over time for several reasons. Often times just brushing alone is not enough to remove stains or make your teeth appear whiter.
Some things that can cause your teeth to become discolored are:
- Smoking and Tobacco Use
- Certain Prescription Medications
- Beverages such as coffee and red wine
When it comes to teeth whitening, you generally have two choices. The first is the have your teeth professionally whitened in a dental office. Your other option is to use at-home, do it yourself whitening products. Both options have their benefits: at-home whitening agents tend to be less expensive and easy to use, while in office dental whitening is performed under the supervision of a dental professional but can be costly. Let’s take a look at the top 3 reasons that you would want to whiten your teeth.
Improves Your Smile
Whitening your teeth is a simple and effective way to improve the appearance of your smile. The whitening gel and strips contain varying levels of peroxide which work to safely lift stains from the surface of your teeth.
Boost Your Self Confidence
Enhancing your smile is a great confidence booster. In a relatively short amount of time, sometimes even days, whitening treatments will have you sporting a brand new look. Your whiter brighter teeth will make you want to show off those pearly whites.
Makes Your Teeth Healthier
One surprising benefit of teeth whitening is that the process actually makes your teeth healthier. Whether you use peroxide gels, strips, UV light, or some combination of the three, the process helps kill harmful bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease. As an added bonus, with less bad bacteria in your mouth, your breath will be fresher too!
