When you have a bright smile, you look more vibrant, you look more radiant and you look happy. Your attractive smile is perceived as being healthy. Conversely, when you have a stained smile, people get an immediate negative opinion of you. When a person has stained teeth, they give off the impression that they don’t care about how they look. They give off the impression that personal hygiene is not important to them. All of this can negatively affect you when it comes to your personal life, in the business world and in your interactions with others. If you are concerned about the appearance of your smile, why not learn more about teeth whitening?
Professional teeth whitening is by far one of the most economical ways to improve your smile and improve the way that others see and treat you. You cannot overstate the importance of having a good smile. Multiple surveys have been done over the past few years that prove this fact. For example, 99.7 percent of adults believe that having a good smile is a key in social settings. More than 75 percent of adults feel that if a person has a less than perfect smile, it can impact their chance for career success. And what’s interesting is that when people are polled, the vast majority of them say that if they could change one thing about their smile, they would make their smile whiter.
There are a lot of reasons why your teeth become discolored. As you get older, your teeth become darker and yellower. This is one of the reasons why people associate healthier and younger people with whiter teeth.
There are as many ways for you to stain your teeth as there are for you to whiten your teeth. The primary reason why people’s teeth become dark as they get older has to do with genetics. Some people take antibiotics that change the color of their teeth. Certain foods like coffee, berries and tea can stain your teeth as you get older as well. Also, using things like tobacco and the overuse of alcohol can have a negative effect on the appearance of your teeth.
While there are do-it-yourself teeth whitening kits available, the results that these products provide are negligible when compared to the results you will receive when you opt for professional teeth whitening at Stamford Dental Group.
