Whether you have optimal oral health and hygiene or you are considering ways to improve the situation, you may also determine that you would like some cosmetic dentistry, as well. At Sana Dental in Edmonton, AB, we offer many forms of cosmetic dentistry, including teeth whitening. Though it may be seen purely as an esthetic issue, there are actually some infrequently noted benefits of teeth whitening that we would like to share.
The Unique Benefits of Teeth Whitening
Professional tooth whitening in the hands of a skilled cosmetic dentist will be different than OTC (over the counter) products. This is because there will be different formulations applied to the teeth, specialized equipment used, and of course the knowledge and skill of the dentist. As your trusted dentist in Edmonton, we will know precisely the products to use for your teeth, and can ensure that your gums are protected from any accidental exposure to teeth whitening compounds.
With most treatments taking an hour or less in the office, you can often see your teeth several shades whiter in that single visit. While fast and effective treatment can rank as one of the benefits of teeth whitening by a cosmetic dentist, there are other things to consider:
It can increase your self-confidence and self-esteem
Many people are embarrassed by discolored teeth, and may even hide their smile or refrain from socializing. Whitening alleviates that worry and enables them to begin speaking, laughing and enjoying company more.
It erases some lifestyle stains
Coffee, tea and red wine drinkers can see deep staining, as can smokers and those who are forced to take certain medications. One of the biggest benefits to tooth whitening is that it can effectively overcome such issues.
It improves appearance
A white smile can make your whole appearance healthier and more youthful.
