If you’ve thought about teeth whitening, you may consider it to be something that’s just for yourself, or doesn’t really play into the well being of your overall smile. You might think of it as an extra “plus” that you can do on the side, when you’re troubled with stained or discolored teeth.
Whitening your teeth is actually something that can dramatically improve your lifestyle, self-esteem, and social life!
Studies show that people with whiter smiles are more confident, outgoing, and give an impression as being more friendly. That’s because they’re happy about the way their teeth look, and don’t have to worry about hiding them when they’re in social settings. They smile in pictures, around other people, and don’t feel self conscious about the way people are looking at them when they talk. Instead, they’re ready to show their teeth off and smile more frequently.
Similar research has shown that people who have whiter, more beautiful teeth are more likely to be considered for job openings and promotions. Choosing to invest in teeth whitening could possibly help you get that new job, raise, or promotion that you’ve been wanting. Study participants that were offered the same job were offered a higher salary when they had better smiles.
It turns out that your smile really does make that first impression count. Teeth whitening is a fairly affordable procedure that can dramatically changes the way your entire mouth looks. From same-day whitening to custom whitening trays, your dentist has an effective, affordable option that can remove years of staining and discoloration, giving you a fresher, younger looking smile.
