SIX Reasons to Professionally Whiten Your Teeth
Brightening the color of your smile is a great way to improve its looks or to kickstart your makeover journey. Professional whitening is an excellent option if you simply want to improve the appearance of your teeth or if you prefer a low-investment, modest cosmetic treatment.
Are you thinking about having your teeth whitened but are unsure if it’s right for you? Every year, we whiten hundreds of smiles in our Newport Beach office. And everyone whitens their teeth for a variety of reasons.
If you’re still debating the advantages and disadvantages of professional teeth whitening with Dr. Yazdan, consider the six reasons below before passing up on the opportunity:
- You’re About to Update Dental Work in Your “Smile Zone”
If you’re about to undergo dental implant or crown placement to restore a missing front tooth, you want it to match the teeth around it. But you won’t be able to whiten your smile again unless you plan on replacing the dental work you’ve had completed. Why? Because teeth whitening products are ineffective on dental restorations.
Instead, Dr. Yazdan can match the material to the new brightness of your teeth if you professionally whiten your teeth beforehand. Your teeth will start out whiter, and you can keep them bright over time.
- You Want to Save on Time
Because our whitening products are prescription strength, they can remove deeply embedded stains faster than over-the-counter products. Unfortunately, some people have sensitive teeth as a result of the concentration of many of these at-home whitening gels. Another consideration is that in-office whitening is a one-time treatment. With over-the-counter teeth whitening kits, you’ll have to keep using more product and your smile won’t be as bright.
- You Want Great Results the First Time Around
Although take-home teeth whitening kits and over-the-counter treatments can offer the benefits of whiter teeth, only professional teeth whitening systems can give you instant results. When Dr. Yazdan completes your teeth whitening treatment, you’ll immediately notice the difference. In fact, professional teeth whitening can make your teeth up to 7 or 8 shades whiter in about 1-1.5 hours.
- Whitening is a Perfect, Stand-Alone Smile Makeover
Teeth whitening is an effective cosmetic solution that can also be used as a stand-alone smile makeover. The best perk is that it’s quick, efficient, and reasonably priced. Teeth whitening is a great place to start if you aren’t ready for more advanced procedures such as veneers or porcelain crowns.
Professional whitening is more affordable than more dramatic cosmetic procedures. If a major revamp isn’t on your to-do list at the moment, teeth whitening most likely is.
After the application, your teeth will be several shades whiter. We’ll show you how to maintain your results for months, if not years, after your initial treatment.
- You Love Coffee, Tea, or Red Wine
Extrinsic stain is caused by a variety of external factors that cause coloration to accumulate or deposit on the tooth’s outer enamel. Cola, tea, coffee, and red wine are all well-known contributors to exterior stain deposits on teeth. Tobacco use, including cigarettes and smokeless tobacco, can also result in severe tooth staining. Fortunately, professional teeth whitening can roll back years of stains and give you brighter, whiter teeth.
- You’re Have a Special Event Coming Up
There’s a lot to be said about the appearance of your teeth. Numerous studies have shown that people with whiter and more beautiful teeth tend to do better in interviews for jobs, appear happier, and have more friends. Brighter teeth are truly an investment in your quality of life.
If you’re confused about what to wear to your next business meeting or need a pick-me-up when it comes to re-entering the dating scene, having whiter teeth may be the perfect item to bring along with you.
Investing in whiter teeth is an easy and cost-effective solution to help you look your best when it counts.
Are You a Candidate for Tooth Whitening?
Adults with healthy teeth and gums can safely whiten their teeth, but they must first treat any active cavities or gum disease. Some teenagers may also be able to whiten their teeth but always check with our Newport Beach dentist first.
Will My Teeth Feel Sensitive?
Because of how the tooth reacts to the whitening ingredients, some people will experience sensitivity when they whiten their smile. Sensitivity occurs when the gel comes into contact with the small pores throughout your enamel. For individuals with particularly sensitive teeth, our Newport Beach dentist may recommend using desensitizing toothpaste for a few weeks before and after their treatment. We can also apply fluoride or desensitizing gel to your teeth to alleviate hypersensitivity problems.
Ready to Get Whiter Teeth?
If you’re thinking about a smile makeover but aren’t sure where to begin, we recommend beginning with a whitening treatment. Brighter teeth can increase your self-esteem, make your smile appear younger, and help you find the confidence to make a good first impression.
