Brighten Your Smile With Professional Teeth Whitening
Halloween is over. Thanksgiving is in sight, and you know Christmas and New Year’s aren’t far behind.
Your social calendar is going to get busier with invitations from family, friends, and co-workers to close 2017. That means lots of pictures getting posted to social media and shared with hundreds of people at a time.
When someone asks you to pose for a “selfie”, we want you to show off your smile. If this makes you a little worried, it may be because your teeth aren’t as bright as you would like them to be.
You can change that with some help from our team at Hellertown Dental Group. Our professional teeth whitening could give you back your confident smile in time for the holiday season.
Teeth Whitening Can Brighten Your Holidays
Imagine two people arriving at a party. Both come bearing small gifts for the hosts, but only one is smiling when they arrive.
One person laughs easily, smiles freely, and seems to be having a great time, enjoying the food and the company. The second person seems to be going out of the way to avoid smiling. The second person almost seems like he or she doesn’t want to be there.
What the rest of the party-goers may not realize is that the second person is embarrassed by the stains on his or her smile. For this reason, that person is trying to not let anyone see his or her teeth.
Which person would you rather be, the one enjoying time with family and friends or the one too self-conscious to have a good time?
We can’t promise that teeth whitening will turn you into the life of the party, but it might help you feel more relaxed. When you aren’t worried that people will be judging the stains on your teeth, it’s easier to be yourself.
Professional Teeth Whitening Can Help
We are sure that you have seen shelves of whitening products in the toothpaste aisle. We understand that it’s tempting to try them. They are easy to find and use.
The problem is they don’t always work as well as patients would like. How do we know? So many patients come to us after they have tried the over-the-counter whitening products. When they are disappointed with the results, they turn to us for visibly whiter and brighter smiles.
To put it simply, professional teeth whitening is similar to using a pressure washer to remove stains from your driveway. Commercial whitening products are like using your garden hose. It’s possible that either could remove stains, but one of those products is going to work much faster and remove a lot more of those stains that have taken years to develop.
For the fastest results, you should try our in-office whitening with Zoom. After making custom-fitted molds of your teeth, we will apply the whitening gel and expose your teeth to a special light.
By the time you leave, you should see a noticeable difference in your smile. Plus, you can take the trays home with you to use with our at-home whitening treatments to touch-up your smile as needed.
Will Teeth Whitening Work For Everyone?
As much as we wish that it did, teeth whitening won’t be as effective for everyone.
The health of your teeth is a factor, as are the reasons for the stains on your teeth (e.g. tobacco use). It’s also important to realize that stains are not the only reasons your teeth can be discolored.
This is why it’s important to talk to a dental professional before you attempt any teeth whitening. If your teeth are discolored as a result of the side effects of medication, an illness, or an injury, then teeth whitening probably won’t give you the smile that you want to see in the mirror.
Fortunately, there is another option. Dental veneers are another cosmetic service that can transform your smile so you have the bright, white teeth that you want.
