Dentists who perform cosmetic procedures can take a special feeling of accomplishment from being able to restore a patient’s dignity. Going through life with missing or disfigured teeth can alter an entire personality and rob a person of the self-confidence that is necessary to succeed in today’s business world.
First impressions can influence the outcome of a social encounter as well as a job interview. A healthy smile is one of the first things another person notices about us. It can signify happiness, well-being and evidence of an importance of self health, all good qualities to look for in a friend or a partner.
There are many ways to improve the look of your smile. Teeth whitening is probably the most basic and has become a very popular option. It can be done right in the office or your dentist can provide a whitening kit for use at home.
There are over the counter products as well such as whitening toothpastes, gels and “strips” that can be found in the pharmacy section of your local general store. The effectiveness of any whitening treatment will depend on the severity of the staining and the lifestyle habits of the patient. All results are temporary however, and the treatment will need to be repeated as necessary. The better choice for most people who want to see immediate improvement in the whiteness of their teeth is to have a professional treatment. Your dentist can offer the benefit of custom fit trays that will insure that the whitening agent will cover evenly and the potency of the concentrate that he uses will be on a higher level.
There are some factors associated with the whitening process that patients should be aware of beforehand. Your dentist will consult with you and discuss any potential issues so that you will know what outcome you can expect even before treatment begins.
