Teeth Whitening: More Than Just Cosmetic

In recent years, the popularity of teeth whitening services has soared. Both easy and effective, teeth whitening has become a rather routine part of many dental care practices. But for many, this dental procedure is seen as an unnecessary luxury, causing hesitation when deciding whether or not to commit to the investment. Quick fixes like over-the-counter teeth whitening kits are commonly subbed for professional services as an alternative to getting that “bright white” smile of patients’ dreams. But when left with tooth sensitivity and lackluster results, users long for more.

So why opt for professional teeth whitening services provided by a dentist? Read on as we unpack how teeth whitening can impact more than just the appearance of your teeth.

Trust the Professionals

A beautiful smile can light up a room and completely change the way you feel about yourself. At Park Avenue Dental, we want you to make informed decisions regarding the care of your teeth. Below are some of the benefits of professional teeth whitening that you may not have thought of before.

A Boost in Self-Confidence

Whiter teeth can make you feel more self-assured. Whether you’re on a date, giving a presentation, or simply chatting with friends, a bright white smile is hard to miss! People who like their smile will naturally smile more, leading to a positive effect on self-esteem. No more hiding in photos or editing selfies — a professional whitening will keep your teeth shining long past the store brands.

Combat Aging

As Americans, we spend a great deal of time and money on expensive procedures to help “turn back time.” Our teeth naturally get darker as we age, so whitening your teeth can make you appear like you’ve taken years off your appearance! But before going through costly and sometimes painful procedures, try teeth whitening! Professional teeth whitening is one of the most affordable and accessible anti-aging treatments on the market.

Quicker, Better Results

Unlike home whitening treatments, professional teeth whitening can change your entire smile in one short sitting. You don’t have to wait weeks to see a change in your teeth’s appearance. Although store-bought products are less expensive, the whitening solution is either too weak and cannot bleach the teeth for sufficient time or too strong and dangerous to ingest. Professional teeth whiteners are safe and effective, supervised by dental professionals, and give longer-lasting results.

Healthier Mouth (and Body!)

Investing in professional teeth whitening often leads to improvements in patients’ overall oral health. Paying more attention to their smiles, patients tend to keep up with the daily brushing and flossing that help fend off gum disease and tooth decay. Improving oral health can trickle down to other areas, too. By maintaining proper oral hygiene, you can help prevent health issues such as cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
