Are you embarrassed by the deep staining on your teeth, to the point that you no longer open your mouth when taking pictures? Do you even try to hide your smile when talking to friends, or giving presentations at work, because you are so insecure due to the discoloration of your teeth? Many people struggle with staining, particularly as they age, due to the porous nature of the teeth’s enamel. Fortunately, professional teeth bleaching makes it possible to rejuvenate the smile, by reversing the staining and revealing a brighter smile in its place. So, if you are ready to finally stop hiding and start enjoying your smile, at last, it’s time to consider the many benefits of choosing professional whitening treatment!
1. You Have Deeply Set, Dark Teeth Stains.
If your teeth are discolored by more than a few shades, you may want to speak with a cosmetic dentist about the benefits of choosing professional teeth whitening. Unlike over-the-counter products, which often lighten teeth by only a few shades, or over an extended period of time, professional whitening uses prescription-grade ingredients that can help to break up surface stains, often lightening teeth up to eight shades through a single course of treatment.
2. Over-the-Counter Products Have Left You Disappointed, in the Past.
In particular, for patients who have already tried several OTC products in the past, and not been satisfied with the results, it is wise to speak with a cosmetic dentist about what professional treatment could accomplish. Added benefits of seeking a professional’s opinion include determination if an alternative treatment would actually be more effective (such as cosmetic bonding or porcelain veneers), indication if a cleaning is first necessary to create the desired improvements, special care to prevent sensitivity or discomfort during treatment, and finally tips about how to prolong the results.
3. You Are Looking for Dramatic Results, Fast.
Finally, if you are hoping to achieve a whiter smile by a certain date, for instance by a graduation, a holiday party, or a wedding, it is often best to go with professional treatment, which is designed to work safely but also efficiently, allowing for noticeable results, quickly.
