Peter Spennato, DDS has been practicing in California for more than two decades now. One of his services is the ever-popular tooth whitening procedure. Over time our teeth may become discolored by certain foods that we eat, drinking coffee or red wine, smoking, and how well we brush and floss. Whitening can help by producing a younger looking effect. If we’re not embarrassed by or conscious of our teeth, we smile naturally and confidently. Teeth whitening is the number one cosmetic dental procedure worldwide and often offers the maximum benefits when used as part of a smile makeover treatment plan. Although a simple procedure, tooth whitening should only ever be carried out by a professional dental team. The effects of tooth whitening usually last for about one to two years, although the results will be dependent on your diet and lifestyle. These are some of the reasons on why you should get your teeth whitened:
Great first impressions.We all make instant decisions based on first impressions, and having the confidence to smile naturally can really help to boost a person’s likeability factor. Having whiter teeth can give an individual the confidence to feel comfortably greeting new people with a smile. When you know your teeth look healthier and brighter, you may talk more, smile wider, and become more engaged in conversations. You may be less likely to mumble or hide behind your hands when you talk. This could have a lasting social, business, and even financial impact.
Improves oral health. Bright, shiny, white teeth project good oral health and a youthful appearance indicating that the person behind the smile is likely in good overall health. When a person greets you with “white and shiny” teeth, it is clearly indicative of the way in which they care for themselves overall. This means you are free of periodontal disease and take pride in caring for your teeth on a daily basis. Dental professionals have noticed that patients who’ve had their teeth whitened tend to show an improvement in their oral health care routine.
Affordable procedure.Teeth whitening is an affordable procedure which can produce almost immediate results. If a person is unhappy with the way their teeth look, teeth whitening is perhaps the first option they will try. Unlike with some other cosmetic dentistry procedures which can prove to be costly, teeth whitening has an immediate visible effect that may keep you focused on maintaining your beautiful smile.
