If you’re dissatisfied with your smile, there are a number of cosmetic dental treatments available to tackle a variety of issues, though teeth whitening is one of the least invasive and yields outstanding results. Here are a few reasons you should consider teeth whitening this year.
Reason #1: Zoom calls and job interviews
With the world in bit of an unconventional state right now, meetings and job interviews are mainly happening on Zoom, though there are some exceptions. Whether you’re meeting a potential employer in person or speaking to a colleague over Zoom, the benefits of a white, healthy-looking smile can go a long way in creating an impression. Did you know? A bright smile has been proven to actually boost career prospects and make you more approachable in the workplace.
Reason #2: Confidence and self-esteem
Your smile is the most important thing you will ever wear, so it’s important to keep it in tip top condition, not least for your wellbeing and confidence. Feeling less than proud of your smile can lead to you avoiding smiling altogether, affecting your serotonin levels and general happiness. Choose teeth whitening to feel better from the inside out.
Reason #3 Non-surgical treatment
Professional teeth whitening is a safe process with no associated pain – it’s an economical procedure that has the potential to transform your smile and your whole facial aesthetic. The process involves having impressions of your smile taken, which are then used to create custom-fitting trays, to which a whitening agent is applied. Remember, never approach anyone but a dentist to have your teeth whitened, as this could lead to irrevocable damage to your teeth and gums.
Reason #4: Motivation to quit smoking and change your diet
If you’re struggling to find your mojo for quitting smoking or making some changes your diet to cut out the sugary snacks and drinks, teeth whitening could help you. A new white smile is an opportunity to start anew and could give you the drive you need to amend your lifestyle and maintain the results of treatment.
