Benefits of Teeth Whitening
Is there something that radiates health more than a bright, white smile? We don’t think so, and at Boss Dental Care in Corpus Christi, TX, we always encourage our patients to consider the many benefits of teeth whitening.
Good Health Is Key
Though a form of cosmetic dentistry, tooth whitening begins on a foundation of optimal oral health and wellness. This means that one of the initial benefits of teeth whitening is that you enjoy the healthiest teeth and gums long before you have the tooth whitening treatment.
Understanding Tooth Whitening
As your dentist in Corpus Christi, we will offer tooth whitening as a solution to a range of issues. For example, if you are someone who has smoked in the past, or who currently smokes, your teeth will stain, and our teeth whitening treatments can eliminate the stains (though we will also encourage you to stop smoking as it harms the health of the teeth and gums). If you have lifestyle habits, such as drinking coffee or tea each day, we can work as your cosmetic dentist to whiten the teeth.
There are certain forms of tooth staining, though, that may not respond to whitening. For instance, some patients use medications that stain the teeth. In these instances, we can attempt whitening, but if that does not work, we may suggest veneers or crowns to permanently erase the discoloration.
The treatments that we use are simple, effective, fast, and safe. We can do the treatment in our office, which will require a single treatment, or we can give you pre-loaded dental trays to use at home. This approach will require more treatments to get the same effects.
Seeing the Benefits of Teeth Whitening
As soon as you have done the whitening, you will start to recognize the benefits of teeth whitening. You will feel more confident about your smile, and this will show in your willingness to speak, laugh, socialize and smile broadly. You may look younger and healthier because of the whitening, and you will certainly present the best possible image – looking healthy, fit, professional and confident.
