It’s no secret that a beautiful smile can have a positive impact on your confidence, mood, personal life and more. That’s one of the major benefits of teeth whitening – brightening your smile can completely change the way you feel about yourself.
When you don’t feel confident about your teeth or smile, it can wreak havoc on your self esteem. But thankfully, professional teeth whitening is an option that is available to help us get the pearly whites we dream of.
What Are Other Benefits of Teeth Whitening?
Picking up an at-home whitening kit seems like an easy solution to discoloration problems, but there are many benefits to professional teeth whitening that cannot be achieved at home. To get started, here are some of the key benefits of teeth whitening:
1. Guaranteed Results
At-home teeth whitening products have come a long way, both in technology and advertising. However, despite having a wide-range of different application methods, no at-home whitening products can guarantee the same results that your dentist can. Many only provide partial whitening of the teeth, which is less than ideal for most people.
Professional teeth whitening guarantees effective results for your entire smile. After a single session with Dr. Winsome Henry-Ward, you can be certain that you will walk away with a bright, white smile that you love.
2. Better Oral Health
Dentists are better able to remove dental staining efficiently and effectively. In fact, when a dentist removes staining from your teeth, they are practicing a cleaning process that also prevents disease and decay, which lessens the likelihood of cavities and gum disease. One of the major benefits of teeth whitening at your dentist’s office is that the process strengthens your teeth while removing discoloration.
3. Long-Lasting Results
Although over-the-counter whitening products can produce good results, they require regular application and it often takes weeks before you can see noticeable whitening. Whitening agents that are available to dentists contain stronger bleaching agents than at-home products – so you know that the results will be instant and long-lasting with professional teeth whitening.
4. Safer Treatment
Store-bought teeth whitening kits can be irritating or increase sensitivity on your teeth and gums. Additionally, without prior testing or dental knowledge, consumers could run into issues including allergic reactions when using at-home products. Fortunately, the professional teeth whitening process is closely monitored by professionals who can carefully adjust levels of whitening agents to suit your needs.
5. Personalized Treatment
At-home whitening products are made to be one-size-fits-all. Unfortunately, they hardly work the same for every person who uses them. Teeth come in different shapes and sizes, and therefore each individual needs different levels of care when it comes to brightening your smile.
We can help you achieve the exact level of brightness that you want, especially in the areas that suffer the most discoloration. Personalized treatment is a benefit of teeth whitening in the dentist office that just cannot be replicated at home.
