Is your smile noticeably dulled? Perhaps your teeth are stained and no matter how well you brush them, their appearance bothers you. Having a dull, yellowed, or stained smile can affect your quality of life. While most tooth discoloration is cosmetic, it can affect your self-esteem and overall happiness. People associate white and vibrant smiles with youth and health. When our smiles our affected by aging and bad habits such as smoking, we can feel much older than we should. Fortunately, professional teeth whitening treatments can make a world of difference in our outlook and our appearance. A professional teeth whitening treatment is both effective and safe. After treatment, you will feel empowered to smile with confidence.
How Professional Whitening Works
Professional teeth whitening works by utilizing bleaching solutions that contain potent yet safe ingredients. These solutions are applied to the outer surfaces of teeth and left on for a predetermined amount of time. Containing prescription strength ingredients, these solutions will lift permanent stains caused by drinking dark beverages, eating dark colored foods, and smoking. Professional teeth whitening can lead to a person’s smile appearing eight to ten shades brighter after treatment.
Why Over the Counter Products Disappoint
Many people become turned off by teeth whitening because they have tried over the counter products and have been disappointed by their ineffectiveness. Over the counter products are not powerful enough to address anything other than surface stains. They typically contain ineffective levels of bleaching ingredients and unstable formulas that render active ingredients useless. Moreover, over the counter products can be unsafe for teeth if they contain harsh abrasives. Harsh abrasives can damage tooth enamel.
