TEETH WHITENING AT VALLEY DENTAL
We all wish we had perfectly white teeth, but over time, our teeth can become stained by coffee, tea, wine, dark-colored sauces and other staining agents. As our teeth fade to yellow, some people change how they smile and the way they talk so they can hide their teeth! This is not necessary!
Teeth whitening can improve your smile and instill you with confidence in your appearance. There’s nothing more rewarding than looking in the mirror and seeing your own beautiful smile, with beautiful white teeth!
Why Get Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening has many benefits:
- Affordable: Teeth whitening is typically an affordable service to help improve your smiles appearance.
- Improved confidence: Many people lose confidence as their teeth become stained. Teeth whitening services can help you feel more confident in the way you look when you smile.
- Improved interpersonal interactions: In some cases, teeth whitening can even lead to improved personal and professional relationships. When you feel comfortable smiling, you may find it easier to cultivate relationships with them, this can help you in your personal and professional life.
- Mental health benefits: When you’re afraid to smile, it’s hard to feel good about yourself, which can have further implications for your mental health and personal happiness. Smiling makes all the difference!
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?
Yes, teeth whitening is safe when you’re working with a qualified dental professional. Our dental team only uses techniques that are safe for your mouth, and will only recommend whitening as often as you need to maintain beautiful, white teeth.
Can You DIY Teeth Whitening?
DIY teeth whitening kits are available at pharmacies, online and in the health and beauty aisle of most stores. DIY teeth whitening is not as effective as in-office professional whitening services, but you may see some change in the appearance of your teeth over time.
Most important of all is to remember that some whitening products can cause tooth sensitivity when used over a long period. Follow all instructions when using at home whitening agents. For best results, get your teeth whitened in the dental office.
Can You Get Your Teeth Whitened If You Have Fillings, Crowns, or Implants?
Restorative dentistry is designed to match the color of your teeth so they look as natural as possible. Therefore, if you are interested in teeth whitening, it is best recommended to whiten prior to receiving any restorative dentistry procedures because fabricated materials will NOT whiten like your natural tooth structure does. In other words, if you get your teeth whitened, your natural teeth may become a lighter shade than the color of your fillings, crowns, or implants, which will make them stand out in a negative way.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
A good candidate for teeth whitening is someone who has good oral hygiene habits and good oral health. People who smoke, who don’t brush their teeth regularly and who don’t see the dentist as often as recommended may struggle to see good results from whitening.
