If your smile has become dull or yellow, there is a high likelihood that you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your teeth. Millions of people agree that discolored teeth lend to an aged appearance. Research even indicates that a less-than-dazzling smile can have a negative impact on personal and professional success.
Yellow teeth not only affect how others perceive you (unhealthy, unfriendly), but also how you feel about yourself. You may have begun to place a hand over your mouth when you speak or smile. You may smile with your lips closed, or smile less frequently than you naturally would. There is no need to feel self-conscious about your smile or dissatisfied with it. At Peters Dental Associates, teeth whitening treatment offers you a number of benefits:
- Make an outstanding first impression. Your smile is your most influential feature because it is what others notice about you first. Healthy, bright teeth naturally elicit positive responses from others, creating the perception of friendliness, sincerity, and success.
- Improved self-esteem. Teeth whitening not only improves the aesthetic value of your smile; it positively affects your entire mindset. When you like what you see in the mirror, you tend to have more confidence. In turn, every aspect of your life seems brighter.
- Professional success. According to numerous polls, including one by Loyola Marymount, an attractive smile can lead to higher pay, more success at obtaining a job, and a greater chance at promotion. Employers surveyed reported perceptions such as reliability, responsibility, and intelligence with attractive smiles.
- More youthful appearance. For ages, tooth discoloration has been an indicator of age, even if this is not wholly true. However, patients who brighten their smiles with professional treatment report feeling as though they have taken years off of their face!
Professional teeth whitening is a fast, cost-effective way to improve the aesthetic value of your smile. There is no need for expensive in-office treatments with lasers or lights. Research has shown that good old-fashioned whitening performed at home produces outstanding results. Just be sure to obtain care from your dentist, not from a box. Professional treatment includes the proper concentration of whitening gel to give you the dazzling smile you want.
Why wait? Make your smile as bright as the spring sunshine with treatment from Peters Dental Associates.
