Am I a candidate for teeth whitening?
posted: Nov. 18, 2015.
A casual flip through the pages of US Weekly, People, or some clicks through TMZ will most likely have more than a few things in common. Amid the tales of celebrity scandals, heartbreaks, and walking-down-the-street-while-clutching-coffee-cup, there is always a common denominator: impossibly white, gleaming teeth. Are celebrities just born that way, the lucky winners of some genetic shiny enamel lottery? Or are they all in on a little dental secret that has somehow managed to elude the rest of us mere mortals?
Professional Teeth Whitening
In fact, it’s a poorly kept secret that celebrities and many people in the public eye have come by their bright, beautiful smiles with the help of the professional teeth whitening services of a cosmetic dentist. But fortunately for the rest of us, getting a whiter, brighter smile is not a luxury service that only celebrities and the one percent can enjoy.
While over the counter teeth bleaching products have become incredibly common and accessible to anyone, the best method for long term teeth whitening is through a cosmetic dentist. If you have teeth, you are most likely a good candidate for professional teeth whitening. Cosmetic teeth whitening is usually the best option for people with natural teeth and porcelain veneers. If you have bonded teeth or crowns, consult with a cosmetic dentist for the best whitening options available.
Why Consider Professional Teeth Whitening?
Even with the most diligent brushing and flossing routines, the teeth can begin to lose their natural color and brightness over time. Normal activities like the food and drinks we consume on a regular basis, like tea, coffee, red wine, berries, and other staining food products like soy sauce can dull the enamel and stain the teeth. Smoking can also significantly stain the teeth over time, along with posing other risks to general and oral health.
As one of the first things a person sees when they look at you, the appearance of a smile can impact everything from professional relationships to social interactions and overall self-esteem. A bright, stain-free smile can help to boost confidence and contribute to a healthy, positive self-image and quality of life.
