How Popular Is Teeth Whitening?

It is pretty widely accepted that the most affordable, safest, and quickest way to change a smile is by whitening your teeth. Americans alone spend over a billion dollars a year on products to whiten their teeth. This is largely because our teeth become discolored for a variety of reasons. Some of the major causes of discoloration are smoking, drinking tea and drinking coffee. Smoking is at the top of the staining list. Tea and coffee tie for second place and the least common reasons include some medications which can cause discoloration. Additionally, even the process of aging can cause staining.

Confidence Boosting

Though you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, the fact is first impressions last. For many people, whiter teeth give you a more professional impression and also one of honesty. In a survey, some people responded by saying that a person’s teeth are the first thing they notice about a person. So, it goes without saying that if your teeth are discolored you might not be as self-confident if you think someone’s impression of you might be tarnished because your teeth aren’t white enough. It stands to reason that when people look good, they feel good and vice versa.

When you smile and you have a set of beautiful white, stain-free teeth, you will feel more confident when you interact with others. For the most part, when people look good, they feel good and if your teeth are white and have no visible stains, you will feel confident when you smile and talk. A smile is an extremely important feature. Whiter teeth also make you look youthful and healthy. Your whole face is brighter with whiter teeth. White teeth are also often an indicator that you eat a healthier diet and take care of yourself physically.

You can whiten your teeth in several different ways with commercial products such as gums, trays, gels, and strips with bleach. The popularity of all these products only means that teeth whitening has become very simple and quite affordable for the average person. The ADA does approve some whiteners from the big box or local stores and says they can be effective, but those products very often require repeated use and can cause pain to your gum tissue as it becomes more sensitive.

Maintaining Your Smile

For the best and most long-term results, we recommend that you come into our dental office and have one of our professionals proceed with a dental office scheduled procedure. Teeth whitening performed by a dentist typically works more efficiently, lasts longer and takes less time. There is no need for you to have discolored teeth that make you look older than you are. One of the best things you can do for yourself to improve the way you look is to whiten your teeth.
