5 Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

November 30, 2022 8:00 am

Stains and blotches of discoloration can appear on your teeth because of dietary and lifestyle habits. For many patients with discoloration, self-confidence may decrease when it’s time to smile big. Do you wish your smile looked more uniform in color but are on the fence about professional teeth whitening? Here are five benefits of professional teeth whitening:

  1. Confidence Boost
  2. If you’re embarrassed about your smile and often hide your teeth due to staining, professional teeth whitening with a cosmetic dentist can help! With reduced self-consciousness, you’ll be more likely to smile at others and in photos. Smiling can boost serotonin levels, which can benefit your mood and mental health.

  3. Greater Motivation to Improve Oral Hygiene
  4. Though professional teeth whitening eliminates stains to brighten your teeth’s appearance, you have to maintain good oral hygiene to prolong the results. Fortunately, you may actually feel more motivated to improve your oral hygiene after whitening treatment!

  5. Safe & Dramatic Results
  6. If you have strolled down the dental care aisle, it is likely that you have come across whitening strips or pastes. These may work to an extent but often don’t yield the results you desire. In contrast, an in-office professional whitening treatment by Dr. Serrano is long-lasting and effective! It is possible to whiten your teeth up to eight shades with most professional teeth whitening treatments. Our office has two highly effective whitening treatments, Opalescence and KöR, that are designed to lighten teeth evenly and effectively, all while reducing tooth sensitivity and gum irritation.

  7. Fast
  8. While there are whitening products available at the store, they usually deliver only mild to moderate changes in the shade of your teeth. On the other hand, in-office professional teeth whitening results are nearly instant and usually require little effort on your part.
