Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Before exploring all the reasons why having whiter, brighter teeth is going to make you a happy camper, Green Apple Dental should first mention a few things that everyone should know before they decide it’s time to make those pearly whites live up to their name.

Home remedies are bad for your teeth

This is the first thing to remember. Yes, brushing your teeth with strawberries, lemon juice or bicarb will make them look a little bit whiter – at the cost of your tooth enamel. That’s too high a price to pay. Your tooth enamel protects your teeth from decay, so dissolving it is what’s called a “bad idea” in just about any sensible person’s books.

If that’s not enough to convince you, maybe this will: a proper teeth whitening process produces much better results instantly!

Store bought remedies aren’t as good as a dentist’s

You can get safe tooth whitening products from a pharmacy. These include strips, toothpastes and so on, but because dentists are able to use special equipment and products that require special skill to apply, no store bought tooth whitener will match the results you’ll get from a professional teeth whitening.

Now for those benefits

Teeth Whitening Benefits

  1. A no-brainer – you get white teeth!

Some people feel a bit embarrassed about wanting whiter teeth, but there’s no need to feel that way. So you’re not a Hollywood star, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a desire to look your very best. That’s what motivates most people who come to our offices asking about teeth whitening, and we know that being able to smile without worrying that the stains on your teeth look bad is important.

  1. One visit is enough

Your dentist can supply you with all the stuff you need to whiten your teeth effectively at home, but in-office whitening remains the top choice. That’s because you can come in with stained teeth, and walk out the door with your teeth as white as they can get in one quick visit. Usually, your teeth will be looking at their whitest in less than an hour.

Although there are those who frown on the concept of ‘instant gratification’, that’s just what most of us want!

Home teeth whitening means we’ll supply you with special forms that fit over your teeth as well as the special gel you need to do the actual whitening. This system is way better than anything you’d be able to get in a store, but it will take several applications to get the same result. However, those who choose it do so because it’s convenient and they’re more comfortable whitening their teeth at home.

  1. Make an impression

Most people don’t even realize how much they judge people by their appearance. So although you’ll feel better about having white teeth, other people will feel better about you too. When you’re facing an important event like the interview for your dream job, making a good impression is important, and your smile will cause people to subconsciously form an impression. If your teeth are stained, they may not feel comfortable with your look – it’s not in line with the image they want to project as a company. On the other hand, a sparkly set of pearly whites will help to create a positive overall impression.
