Benefits of Teeth Whitening
We should brush our teeth multiple times a day to keep them healthy and looking their best. Over time, even with proper care, teeth become stained, making us looked aged. Teeth whitening systems have come a long way in the last few years and no longer need to be equated with sensitivity or enamel damage. Here are a few good reasons to consider using a teeth whitening system; food stains, confidence and smiles.
We are all likely familiar with many foods and beverages that stain our teeth. Almost everything we eat and drink on a daily basis has the potential to stain our pearly whites. There are some culprits that are well known like red wine and coffee. But there are others that you might not know about or would be surprised with their teeth staining capabilities. Did you know that tea can potentially cause more staining than coffee? There are also many foods that stain our teeth that are not necessarily unhealthy. For example, many berries and tomato-based sauces are top stain offenders but also contain high levels of antioxidants. (1) Those healthy green smoothies? Yup, teeth staining culprits! Bottom line is that no matter how healthy your diet, your teeth are exposed to all the pigments that can lead them to become dull or yellow overtime.
Did you know that 1 out of 4 adults avoid smiling because of the condition of their teeth? (2) When we don’t have confidence in our smile, we tend to hide our teeth. Having a white smile boosts confidence. Confidence plays a significant role in our personal and professional lives. And confidence is contagious. Others want to be around those that ooze confidence.
Bright smiles have many benefits, physical and chemical. Studies show that a smile can reduce stress and reduce your blood pressure, two amazing health benefits. Smiles are also perceived as attractive, with studies having found that men find women who smile more attractive than women who wear a lot of make-up. A whiter smile can also make us look up to 13 years younger.
"Science has shown that the mere act of smiling can lift your mood, lower stress, boost your immune system and possibly even prolong your life. Smiles spur a chemical reaction in the brain, releasing certain hormones including dopamine and serotonin. Dopamine increases our feelings of happiness." (3)
A beautiful smile can represent comfort and understanding in times of trouble and help slowly heal the wound that needs comforting. Most would agree that a little comfort will go a long way right now during these uncertain and stressful times.
How to choose a teeth whitening system that is right for you
Not all teeth whitening systems are created equal. Some use strips. Some use trays. And some cause pain and irritation. Here are some things to consider when choosing which system is right for you.
Whitening vs. Bleaching
Whitening products remove stains from tooth enamel. Bleaching products use forms of peroxide (hydrogen or carbamide) to whiten enamel. Everything we eat and drink on a daily basis stains our teeth over time. Why bleach your teeth without first removing stains from your enamel?
Many teeth whitening systems are time consuming. Treatment time will vary from product to product. Some require minutes of your time while others will take hours from your day.
There are people who are only wanting to whiten for a certain occasion: Weddings, anniversaries, family gatherings or preparing for a first date. The idea of using strips and trays for 30 days just seems so inconvenient and time consuming, not to mention messy. Yuck! And a lot of time, all you end up with is sensitivity and irritation of your teeth and gums. There are revolutionary teeth whitening systems that are much more efficient with your time, and just as, if not more, effective!
Depending on the method, results may be seen in days, weeks or possibly months. In addition to first seeing results, know how long they will last. Effects will ultimately differ from person to person, especially for those who indulge in smoking and or eating and drinking foods that easily stain teeth.
Why do people want a white smile and most people don’t have it? It may be because we don’t have the time. Between working, caring for our loved ones, and the daily activities, getting your teeth whiter is probably on the bottom of the priority list. So, let’s review. Do you want to be perceived as unhappy? Or, do you want to smile more and gain some health benefits along the way?
