Little things can make a big difference in the way you look. Coloring your hair, updating your hairstyle or even whitening your teeth can turn back the clock and help you look years younger. Kunio Chan, DMD, MAGD, your Billerica, MA, dentist at One Dental Care, is here to share a few benefits of professional teeth whitening.
Teeth whitening helps erase the signs of aging
You've probably enjoyed your share of coffee, tea, cola, wine, berries or soy sauce over the years. Unfortunately, these foods and beverages tend to stain teeth. Aging can also make your teeth look dull or yellow. The effects of aging combined with the staining caused by bright or dark foods and beverages can cause your teeth to lose their luster. Fortunately, professional teeth whitening offers an easy solution to these problems.
Professional teeth whitening offers benefits that drugstore products can't
There's nothing more convenient than picking up a teeth whitening kit at the drugstore on the way home from work. Although those kits can lighten your teeth, the results may not be as impressive or long-lasting as the professional teeth whitening treatments your dentist offers. Kits, depending on the type, may only lighten your teeth for a few weeks or months while your smile will be whiter for as long as five years after professional teeth whitening. Professional whitening also saves you time. In just one one-hour visit, your teeth will be as much as three to eight shades whiter.
Professional whitening is the safer option
Over-the-counter whitening trays usually come in only one size, which obviously won't fit everyone the same way. Unfortunately, if the whitening trays don't provide a good fit, the whitening agent can leak into your teeth roots or gums, causing considerable pain and sensitivity. When you choose professional teeth whitening treatment, your dentist places a barrier in your mouth to protect your gums and teeth roots from the whitening agent. You'll receive excellent results without the pain that over-the-counter products can cause.
