Benefits of Teeth Whitening

by Dr. Laurie T. Hanschu

The healthiest smiles are not always the whitest. There are many reasons that someone with perfectly healthy teeth
and gums would not also have a gleaming white grin. This is why Stefanie Shore, DDS in Carmichael, CA encourages our patients to learn about the many benefits of teeth whitening. After all, teeth whitening is the simplest, most affordable and most conservative of all cosmetic dentistry treatments.

Tooth whitening is just as it sounds – a procedure that removes stains and restores your teeth to their whitest. As your cosmetic dentist, Dr. Shore can provide you with the many benefits of teeth whitening through in-office treatments as well as take-home solutions. We are more than happy to customize the treatment based on your needs.

However, we also encourage everyone to take a few moments to really itemize and consider the wide benefits of teeth whitening, some of which are easy to overlook:

Create a baseline color

Quite often, our patients have treatments such as crowns and veneers done to protect and restore teeth, as well as offer cosmetic improvement. Before we make crowns, though, we may suggest some whitening to allow you the most flawless smile when the crown is placed. Colored to match your existing teeth, you will want your crown to be as white as your smile, and that means whitening is important beforehand.

Boost self-confidence

Whether you realize it or not, you know when your smile is its very brightest. When you have your teeth whitened using professional methods, you head out into the world each day knowing that your smile looks its very best. This automatically boosts your self-confidence and this can easily result in noticeable improvements in your private and professional life.

Turn back time

Yellowed or stained teeth make you look older than you are, and teeth whitening undoes this effect. A white smile simply makes you look much younger, whatever your age.

Correct lifestyle habits

Though we don’t advocate smoking or tobacco use, whitening can erase the discoloration to your teeth that is always a result of this lifestyle habit. Whitening also addresses stains from coffee, tea, red wine, certain medications and some childhood conditions too.

Painless and fast

At-home treatments are easy, causing minimal or no discomfort and no after effects. For most patients, this is the most ideal whitening method because it is the most predictable and affordable. When necessary or per patient preference, in office whitening is also a wonderful way to achieve a whiter smile.

Deep whitening for difficult to whiten teeth

We see wonderful results with the KOR deep whitening system for those who have tetracycline stained, darker or whitening resistant teeth.
