There are many benefits to getting your teeth whitened. Here are four of our top reasons to whiten your smile today!

-Confidence: Perhaps the number one benefit of a whiter smile is greater confidence in your appearance. Having a smile that you are proud of can create a lasting impact on your life, and a bright white smile is a great place to start.

-Anti-Aging: We subconsciously associate a whiter smile with a younger appearance. As we age, our teeth are exposed more and more to food, drink, and other substances that will stain them. Among these are coffee, red wine, dark juices, and tobacco products. Anything that will stain a white t-shirt can stain teeth. Avoid these foods and drinks while whitening teeth, and abstain from using tobacco products.

-A conservative method for a whiter smile: Unlike crowns or veneers, no tooth structure loss is necessary when whitening teeth. While other cosmetic procedures can give you a bright white smile, teeth whitening brightens your smile without any necessary etching or other preparations.

-Improves Oral Health: Anecdotally, we can say that people who undergo teeth-whitening treatment have more motivation to take care of their smile. Brushing for 2 minutes twice a day and flossing for 2-3 minutes is a small price to pay to keep those pearly whites, pearly-white!
