Bright, white teeth can have a lasting impression upon yourself and the people you interact with on a daily basis. The psychological effects of a having a beautiful, bright, white smile can mean all the difference in one’s mindset and overall mood. The treatment options that are available for teeth whitening are plentiful and abound. However, only a few of the options are a sure, safe bet.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

The benefits of teeth whitening are far and wide. They range from increased confidence to a general feeling of peace that is encompassed with the ability to openly smile without the worries of having stains and/or discolorations on your teeth. When we see white teeth, we receive signals in our brain that the person is more youthful and healthier. That means the main benefit of teeth whitening is not the teeth itself, but how it can help you connect with others!

The Value of a Bright, White Smile

According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, nearly 100% (99.7%) of adults believe a great smile is an important tool in social communication and success. 96% of adults believe that an attractive smile is crucial in attracting a partner. 74% of adults believe an unattractive smile can harm the success rate of future endeavors. In the same study, participants were asked what they would like to improve most about their smile. Their response was: “Whiter and Brighter Teeth”.

Tooth Discoloration Causes

When we’re first born, our teeth are pristine, white, and healthy. As we age, we subject our teeth to the daily abuse of harsh foods and drinks, poor dental hygiene, aging, and a host of other damaging factors. All of these aspects of the life of your teeth can result in discoloration. The main causes of internal tooth discoloration is exposure to high levels of fluoride, antibiotic use during your youth, developmental disorders, tooth decay, tetracycline, restorations gone wrong, root canal issues, and smoking.

Teeth Whitening Options

Professional teeth whitening is by far the most successful and long-lasting option out there if you’re seeking quality results. Professional teeth whitening offers many advantages over OTC teeth whitening. First, the professional teeth whitening utilizes stronger whitening agents, yet it’s not as damaging as the standard, over-the-counter (OTC) whiteners you’ll find in your local drug store. The second major benefit of professional whitening treatment is that it often only takes one full session to see teeth that are up to 10 shades whiter than before. Professional teeth whitening treatment can last for up to a full year, depending upon your oral care regimen, diet, and a few other factors.

OTC home teeth whitening systems are quite popular due to their entry-level pricing and ease of use. These OTC whitening methods include: strips, paint-on gels, mouth trays, toothpastes, and gums. These methods are somewhat effective, but some yield minimal results and some can cause actual harm to your teeth, gums, and overall oral health. This is just another reason to always consult Dr. Shaghasi before using any OTC products.

Overall, teeth whitening can provide many great avenues in your life to open up. Whether it be a newfound sense of confidence, attracting that person you’ve been interested in, or smiling your way to top of your career; with professional teeth whitening, you’ll be able to achieve all that and so much more!
