The Benefits of Teeth Whitening

A common issue many people have is stained or discolored teeth. There’s nothing unusual about having less than white teeth. You can’t help that some foods and drinks stain your smile. Giving up coffee or wine can be difficult, even though you might know the discoloration they can do to your teeth. Even abstaining from these foods or drinks doesn’t stave off the eventual yellowing that occurs with age. 

Studies show that Americans spent over $1.4 billion on over-the-counter teeth whitening products last year alone, meaning that a desire for a bright smile is on many people’s minds. 

Your dental specialists in Middletown, NJ recommend professional teeth whitening services and are happy to assist. Here are great benefits you can look forward to after your dental treatment:

1. Teeth Whitening Can Change the Way You Look

It might sound like an exaggeration, but sometimes you don’t realize how stains have accumulated over time on your teeth. It’s not until you compare your new shades of white to pre-whitening that you see the difference in your appearance. The first time you see your new ultra-white smile, you’ll feel the difference.

2. Teeth Whitening Can Change the Way You Feel

The first thing you notice, of course, is how you look. You’ll keep flashing your smile at every reflective surface; you will take so many pictures and study your new smile. The cumulative effects of smiling all the time? It changes the way you walk, the way you carry yourself, and how you smile at complete strangers. The act of smiling so often will boost your confidence. 

3. Teeth Whitening Might Turn Back Time

One study, conducted by Oral B, suggests that white teeth can make you look over five years younger. White teeth typically signal youth, it’s an automatic perception when we see someone. When people make a visual assessment of you, they consider your smile as a huge variable. Compared to many ways people try to look younger, teeth whitening is a wonderful, painless, and cost-effective option.
