Why teeth whitening is important for your smile in Newport Beach, CA
Teeth whitening is the most popular type of cosmetic dentistry treatment used in the United States, but you may be wondering why teeth whitening is important for your smile. A survey from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry showed that a whopping 99.7 percent of adults believe that your smile is an important social asset, and 74 percent believe that your smile can greatly impact your chance for success. One of the easiest and most affordable ways to transform a smile is to make it whiter and brighter. At Newport Beach Dentist in Newport Beach, CA, Dr. John Ravera offers multiple options for tooth whitening to help you achieve dramatic results and a smile worth flashing.
Feel more confident in yourself
One of the most important reasons we encourage tooth whitening is the big confidence boost that it gives you. Think of the times you have looked in the mirror and truly felt great about your appearance – you walk with more pep in your step and approach the rest of the day with a more positive attitude. When you are proud of your smile and confident in your appearance, it translates into a variety of wonderful benefits at home, in social situations, and at work. If you are getting ready for a special occasion, such as a wedding, a reunion, or a big event, tooth whitening can help you look your best so you can walk into the event feeling confident and projecting radiance.
Look younger and healthier
Studies have shown that people tend to perceive happy, smiling faces as younger than people who have more neutral or angry facial expressions. When you smile readily because you are confident in your bright and healthy grin, it can seemingly take years off your appearance! Tooth whitening serves a double anti-aging role by eliminating the yellowed appearance that older teeth tend to have. As we age, our teeth naturally become less bright and white due to a thinning of the enamel, and certain illnesses and medications can also cause tooth discoloration. Additionally, habits such as smoking or chewing tobacco can cause buildup and discoloration on your teeth that detract from your appearance and can even make you look unhealthy. With beautiful, white teeth, you will exude an air of health and youthfulness, and others will take notice.
Advance your career
When your smile is radiant, you tend to smile more and send the signal that you are competent and full of energy. Everyone loves to work with someone who smiles and puts them at ease, and whether we like it or not, people make judgements about personal appearance. When you have a healthy, confident smile, prospective and current employers will instinctively put greater trust in you.
Experience the other benefits that tooth whitening offers
In addition to the above, tooth whitening confers many other benefits to our patients. One of the big reasons we advocate for tooth whitening at Newport Beach Dentist is that we have seen that it leads to better oral health care at home. When you have spent the time, energy, and money to whiten your teeth, you are more inclined to maintain their beautiful appearance and take better care of them at home with regular brushing and flossing. This translates into healthier teeth and gums, and fewer trips to the dentist.
Additionally, patients love tooth whitening because it:
- Is the easiest and most affordable way to change the appearance of your smile
- Does not require modification of your tooth structure, like veneers or crowns do
- Is easy to maintain – you can boost your whitening effect with at-home maintenance treatments any time your teeth are starting to look dull
- There are very few side effects – the most common issue patients experience is sensitivity, and we can take steps to help you manage it
