Benefits of a Brighter Smile

Benefits of a Brighter Smile

White teeth make a big impression on people without you having to say a single word. One smile is all it takes for everyone you meet to know how much you care for yourself and your dental health. It’s a big confidence boost.

Stained and yellow teeth also make a big impression, but not one that you want. It’s hard to remain confident and non-self-conscious during a conversation when you see people break eye contact to look down at your teeth.  

Humans are programmed on an evolutionary level to be attracted to white teeth. Here’s why:

When humans were living in tribes as hunter-gatherers 100,000 years ago, teeth were an important and readily visible indicator of health and vitality. 

Stained, yellow, or rotting teeth meant that a person wasn’t long for this world, and they should be avoided. Things haven’t changed that much in this regard. 

Although we’ve made advances as a species, we’re still the same animals. We still use teeth as a primary indicator of fitness and health. Straight and white teeth send a strong subconscious and conscious signal to people that you’re healthy and awesome in general. 

If you’re living with teeth that aren’t as white as you’d like, you’ve got more options than you think.

 

I Want Whiter Teeth. What are My Options?

In-Office Treatments

In-office bleaching gets immediate results in about 1 hour. It’s high-tech, painless, safe, and easy. The only thing you’ll have to handle is the application of a take-home gel (with instructions) to keep your smile bright.

Trays

Tray whitening is a less expensive and more convenient at-home whitening treatment. The results are more gradual. 

Your dentist will make trays that fit your teeth. You’ll be responsible for following instructions for how to apply the whitening gel in the trays and how often to use it. 

It’s not a “set-it-and-forget-it” solution, but the end result is your teeth are sparkly white. Plus, with this option, you get to consult with your dentist at regular intervals to make sure everything is copasetic.

Over The Counter Whitening Products

While some of these work to whiten your teeth, it’s best to avoid these.  Instead, consult an expert dentist before you use over-the-counter whitening treatments. Some OTC whiteners are ineffective or end up giving you mismatched crowns or fillings. Don’t take shortcuts, or you might pay.

 

How Affordable are Teeth Whitening Products and Services?

Each option for getting whiter teeth comes at a different price point. The more affordable options will take longer to get results, and the more expensive options get instant results. 

What’s best for you depends on your budget and your timeline.

Before you say, “That’s too expensive!” it’s important to consider what you’re getting for the money. White teeth provide the biggest improvements in attractiveness for the least amount of money. You get the most bang for your buck.

For Example: 

A rhinoplasty operation costs $15K and often ends up making your face look strange or out of proportion.

But you can get sparkling white teeth that make you universally more attractive for a small fraction of a nose job. White teeth make you more attractive for less money. 

 

Conclusion

Whiter teeth are worth the investment, but you have to find a dentist that can deliver. Don’t hesitate to reach out and see how we can give you a bright, whiter smile and all the benefits that come with it.
