Restore Your Confidence with a Whiter Smile

July 6, 2016

Are you reluctant to smile? Do you cover your mouth when you laugh? Unfortunately, these behaviors aren’t uncommon when people have dark, stained teeth. However, it is possible to restore your confidence with a whiter, brighter smile!

What Are the Benefits of a Whiter Smile?

Have you ever heard the phrase, “When you look good, you feel good”? It’s true. A whiter smile increases self-confidence, making you more attractive to potential dating partners, employers, and new friends. This isn’t just hearsay, it’s confirmed by research!

For instance, a study on the effects of whiter teeth showed that people who whitened their teeth were:

  • More likely to be hired
  • Received higher salary offers
  • Viewed as more confident, professional, and outgoing
  • More likely to attract interest from potential dating partners

How Can We Help You Achieve Whiter Teeth?

There are 2 primary ways in which we help our patients achieve whiter smiles. The first option is Zoom Whitening treatment which uses a bleaching agent to whiten your teeth.

Another option is veneers or Lumineers (a specific brand of veneers). These are custom-created, thin coverings for your teeth that can quickly improve the look of your smile.

What Are the Benefits of a Zoom Whitening Treatment?

With Zoom Whitening, you can leave our office with dramatically whiter teeth in about an hour. Zoom Whitening treatment brightens your teeth up to 8 shades in less time than it would take to watch a movie! Plus, you’ll receive custom-made bleaching trays so you can easily maintain the results with touch-ups every 6 months after your routine cleanings.

What Are the Benefits of Veneers?

Veneers offer a more permanent solution, routinely lasting between 15 and 20 years. Additionally, veneers are:

  • Made from stain-resistant porcelain, meaning your teeth will remain whiter for as long as your veneers last
  • Easy to maintain because they don’t require any special upkeep
  • Great for fixing more than just stained teeth—they also can be used to correct the appearance of gaps between teeth, irregular gum lines, and worn, chipped, or misshapen teeth

Choosing Between Zoom Whitening and Veneers

Because not everyone is a good candidate for both of these whitening options, we encourage you to visit us for a free consultation. We’ll review your medical history and examine your mouth thoroughly to make a personal recommendation.

We also make it easy for you to schedule a consultation! You can request an appointment online or you can call our office at 330.578.1778.
