Summer is a wonderful time to enjoy the outdoors or travel since school is out for a while. Being around people more often means you may be more self-conscious about your smile, especially if your teeth have lost their luster, shine or pearly white color. There are quite a few things that can stain teeth, and here are some of the most common reasons to consider a tooth whitening treatment to boost your smile!
-Tooth Stains: your teeth can lose their pearly white appearance if you haven’t had them professionally cleaned for a while. Plaque and tartar are notorious for discoloring teeth.
-Special Event: If you have a special occasion to look your best for, whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, graduation or wedding, a teeth whitening treatment can make your smile dazzle again!
-Job Hunting: Applying for a new job means you want to look your absolute best. Your smile can either hinder or help you on your job search. Make sure it helps you present your best self, making you look and feel more confident, energized and enthusiastic, all traits that prospective employers look for!
-Aging Effects: Time has a way of dulling your teeth with age. Revitalizing your smile with a teeth whitening treatment can make you look (and feel) beautiful again!
-Lifestyle Choices: Your daily habits can either support your smile or dull it. Tobacco especially, in any form, can increase plaque and tartar buildup (the kiss of death for your pearly whites) by staining teeth.
-Dietary Habits: Regularly drinking coffee, tea, or wine will eventually stain or discolor tooth enamel. A teeth whitening treatment can set your smile straight again!
-Boost Self-Esteem: Changes to your appearance, especially your smile, can give your self-esteem a much-needed boost. The more attractive your smile, the more you will want to show it off!
Certain illnesses and medications can also impact your smile. So what’s a tooth to do? While you can certainly try to whiten your teeth at home using over-the-counter products, they are not always effective on all stains. They might affect you in the following ways:
- Trouble getting rid of unsightly brownish or grayish stains
- Trouble whitening pitted or badly discolored teeth
- Unable to lighten restorations like crowns, bridges, bonding and tooth-colored fillings
