There are many good reasons to explain why teeth whitening has become so popular. Feeling more self-confident is probably the #1 reason. Embarrassment because of stained and darkened teeth makes people hold themselves back in both personal and business situations. Almost everyone believes that a beautiful smile is a valuable asset. It used to be true that only movie stars seemed to be able to have that ‘perfect smile’. Now, teeth whitening procedures let anyone have that smile they always wished for.
As we age, teeth naturally darken. Antibiotics and certain foods and beverages also contribute to stained teeth. Cigarette smokers typically have darker teeth as well. Teeth whitening reverses much of the damage and lightens tooth color. While there are many whitening treatments and toothpastes available in any pharmacy, professional teeth whitening done by an experienced dentist will result in teeth that are several shades lighter and accomplish the desired result much faster.
The in-office whitening procedure is simple. After the gums and lips are isolated, a special gel is applied to the teeth which is then activated by a light. At the conclusion of the treatment, the average patient will have brightened their teeth by six to ten shades. A quick fluoride treatment finishes the treatment. Over the next few days, the teeth may become even whiter. Cosmetic dentists also offer professional at home whitening products for their patients, especially customized trays for home bleaching.
