The teeth are a big part of facial appearance, and for people who have issues with discoloration or other color-related problems, teeth whitening treatments can be a great option. At Caring Smiles Dental Clinic, we offer a safe and simple teeth whitening procedure to help brighten your smile.
Some of the benefits of these orthodontic treatments are fairly obvious, but there are others you may not have considered as well. Let’s take a look.
These are the primary reasons why many people look to teeth whitening services from a dentist. A beautiful smile can mean a lot to people for reasons varying from personal to work-related, and it can go a long way to boosting self-confidence – an area that relates to physical health issues more than you might think.
Both directly and indirectly, whiter teeth are associated with a healthier lifestyle. As we just noted, self-confidence and its effect on stress can have a major impact on physical health – people who are confident in their own skin will have lower stress levels and may even see a stronger immune system as a result, among other benefits.
In addition, basic lifestyle trickle-down is often present. A willingness to care for oneself in this way often leads to that same willingness in other beneficial personal areas.
One specific appearance area that’s important for many people: Wrinkles. A whiter smile tends to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, as the face isn’t contorting as often to smile in a way that hides discolored teeth.
There are no harmful side effects whatsoever to basic teeth whitening, and whether or not the treatment is required based on personal preference or a physical issue like decay or trauma, there are no risks involved. These treatments are simply about removing stains or discolorations and replacing them with pearly white color to match the rest of your teeth.
In addition, teeth whitening is very affordable. It can be done regularly, or on a one-time basis. We offer whitening services both in the home or in our dental office, and the procedure can be completed in under an hour.
