Can You Benefit from Teeth Whitening?
Patients of Corey Mazer, DDS at Old Milton Dental in Alpharetta, GA can come to our office for many different cosmetic dentistry treatments. Though we begin any customized cosmetic dentistry plans on a foundation of optimal oral health, we are often asked if certain cosmetic options bring actual benefits. For instance, as we near the end of a patient’s cosmetic treatment, we may recommend tooth whitening. Often, a patient wants to know if you can actually benefit from teeth whitening, and it may surprise you to learn that you can!
Naturally, as your dentist in Alpharetta, we want you to show off your healthy teeth and gums with big and broad smiles. Unfortunately, many people with healthy teeth may hide their smile because it is discolored or they have a single tooth that has an off color. Naturally, this is the sort of person who can benefit from teeth whitening, and it is important to consider how this benefits them in more ways than one. Certainly, the tooth whitening will improve the looks of their smile, but it also gives them the comfort and confidence to smile more often. It is well known that many people who hide their smile out of concerns over their appearance will make not smiling a habit. Over time, this has a negative impact on them socially.
Why Else Can You Benefit From Teeth Whitening?
So, teeth whitening can improve confidence and make you a bit happier in your social life. How else might you benefit from teeth whitening? It is also a process that turns back the clock. After all, many of us see our teeth yellow or darken as the years pass, even as we practice great oral hygiene. The yellowing of our teeth can make us look older than we are, and a simple and fast cosmetic treatment such as whitening can undo this artificial aging process.
Of course one of the best ways to benefit from teeth whitening is to simply ask about it. When you inquire about teeth whitening in our office, we begin with an exam, cleaning and evaluation of your oral health. If you have a few issues, we will address those before the whitening. So, just asking about whitening will lead you to better oral health as well!
