Teeth come in a variety of shades and tones naturally; however, the benefits of a bright smile are priceless. If you’re embarrassed by stains or discoloration, you’ve probably tried a few OTC products, but none provided the improvement you want. Stop throwing money down the drain. Here are 5 reasons summer is an excellent time to invest in professional teeth whitening.
1. Give Your Confidence a Boost
If you are unhappy with the way your teeth look, you might refrain from smiling or laughing. You can conquer your social anxieties and be more outgoing. Revitalizing your smile will boost your confidence to make the most of the sunshine and warmer weather.
2. Look Your Best for Summer Events
Summer is a great time for vacations, weddings, family reunions, and other big events. You won’t have to hide your teeth when smiling for pictures, chatting with friends, or eating at a family barbeque.
3. Better Career Opportunities
People associate an attractive smile with youth, confidence, and success. Discolored teeth can give the wrong impression in the professional world. Your summer investment can revamp your image to ensure your smile is saying the right things about you. It can even lead to new career opportunities.
4. Quick Results
No one wants to spend their summer sitting in a dental chair, but teeth whitening is a quick process. You’ll require an initial consultation to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy. Your cosmetic dentist will create a personalized treatment plan, which can include:
- In-Office Treatment
In-office whitening systems can get your teeth up to 8 shades whiter in about an hour. A whitening agent is applied to your teeth, which is activated using a special dental light. You will notice a significant improvement in the color of your teeth by the end of your session.
- At-Home Whitening Kit
As an alternative to an in-office system, many patients prefer a take-home kit. Your dentist will give you everything you need to achieve in-office results from the comfort of home. You’ll use the kit daily for about 2 weeks. Your teeth will become several shades whiter as each day passes.
Either option can provide the results you desire. Don’t worry, your cosmetic dentist will help you make the best decision for your smile.
5. Long-Lasting Results
Your new smile can stay bright and beautiful long past summer. On average, results last anywhere from a few months to several years. You can preserve your stunning smile by committing to your oral hygiene at home and visiting your dentist regularly for a cleaning and checkup. It’s best to avoid anything that can lead to new stains, like coffee or smoking. If your results begin to fade, your dentist can give you a touch-up kit for a vibrant smile that will last all year.
