7 Secret Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Woman's beautiful smile with bright white teeth.

There’s no doubt that a bright white smile is incredibly attractive. And since your smile is the first thing many people notice about you, your teeth are a worthwhile investment.

In fact, you may have already tried some over-the-counter tooth whitening products, such as toothpaste and whitening strips. While these products might have a slight brightening effect, their results cannot compare to what professional tooth whitening treatment can do.

Modern cosmetic dentistry offers teeth whitening options that make getting a brighter smile attainable and affordable. But if you are still unsure about whether professional tooth whitening is right for you, read on to find out some of the surprising benefits of whiter teeth.

Whiter Teeth Make You Look Younger

Forget plastic surgery; tooth whitening is a fast and easy way to look years younger. A dull or yellowed smile can be making you look much older without you even realizing it. In fact, several studies have shown that whiter teeth can make you appear 5 to 10 years younger. This makes sense since our teeth tend to stain and become discolored with age, and bright white teeth are associated with youth. While many of us focus on our skin and wrinkles as we age, we may be better off concentrating on whitening our teeth to look instantly younger.

Confidence Boost

It is no surprise that looking younger and more attractive boosts confidence. So, of course, having a brighter, whiter smile will contribute to better self-esteem. Worrying about the look of your teeth can make you self-conscious and can affect how you interact with others. Whether it is in your professional or personal life, you will be sure to get a big boost of confidence knowing your smile is looking its best.

You Can Touch Up at Home

Our office offers two types of professional whitening. Our in-office treatment whitens teeth brilliantly in one short visit. But if you would rather whiten at home, that is an option as well. We provide customized whitening trays and oversee your at-home whitening regimen. If comfort and convenience are important to you, professional teeth whitening is still within reach.

Treatment is Customizable

You can whiten more or less dramatically depending on your preference. You may prefer a brilliant white smile or a more subtle improvement. Treatment with a professional that is experienced in cosmetic dentistry will ensure you get the specific results you are hoping for, nothing more and nothing less.

Teeth Whitening is an Affordable Smile Makeover

Professional whitening treatments can be surprisingly affordable. This is especially true when you compare tooth whitening to other cosmetic dentistry procedures. For example, porcelain veneers can cost thousands of dollars, and the procedure can be extensive. Whitening can be done in about an hour in-office or in the convenience of your own home, and a dramatic result is possible.

Whiter Teeth Can Help Mask Other Aesthetic Concerns

White teeth look amazing. And amazing-looking bright teeth hide other imperfections. Cracks, chips, or imperfect alignment are camouflaged when you have a beautiful white smile.

Boost in Work Performance

A whiter smile can actually make you better at your job. The boost in self-confidence you get from a bright white smile will certainly give you an advantage in every aspect of your life, including your career. In addition, people with whiter teeth are perceived to be more likable and more successful.
