Your smile plays a big role in the first impressions you make. Teeth are naturally white and radiant, however there are many common factors that cause them to turn yellow over time.
The natural ageing process can play a part in this, but so can habits such as smoking or consuming too many acidic foods and drinks (e.g. alcohol).
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments to achieve a bright and beautiful smile. The question is, what type of teeth whitening is best for you – should you take a chance on a generic store-bought kit or go straight to your dentist?
Dentists recommend professional teeth whitening for a number of reasons. Here are the top four benefits:
1. It’s safe
One of the main concerns about store-bought home whitening kits is that you can actually damage your teeth if you don’t follow the instructions and use the product properly.
Another concern is that one size does not fit all. Some generic treatments may irritate your teeth, depending on the condition of your oral health.
Fortunately, you won’t have these problems with professional teeth whitening as the treatment is clinically proven. Your initial consultation will give your dentist the opportunity to examine your mouth before the procedure. Professional teeth whitening treatment also takes into account those with sensitive teeth and is much gentler and safer on the teeth and gums.
2. It produces instant results
In-chair teeth whitening can achieve a smile up to 8 shades whiter. The procedure is so quick and effective that it can be done during your lunch break. The treatment enhances your smile and boosts your confidence the second you walk out of the dental practice.
3. It’s long-lasting
The treatment can last a couple of months, as long as you keep up a good oral hygiene routine. This involves brushing twice daily for a full two minutes, flossing and using mouthwash.
4. It provides better value for money
Although you may see store-bought kits endorsed on social media, results aren’t always guaranteed. It often depends on the condition of your teeth and oral health. Some store-bought kits may also lose effectiveness over time.
Professional teeth whitening proves to be beneficial in the long run. With guaranteed results, you’ll save yourself the money, time and hassle of trying other treatments.
