Your smile can say a lot about you to others people. Are your teeth saying the right things about you? If they are dingy and yellow, your teeth might not be giving people the right impression.
If you are like most Americans, you have possibly considered having your teeth whitened. Patients who have never tried this procedure before are going to have many questions. Here is what you need to know about dental teeth whitening.
There are plenty of reasons for teeth yellowing, and it is possible to have less-than-white teeth even if you brush and floss regularly. Tobacco smoking is notorious for staining your teeth, but even healthier choices such as tea, coffee, and red wine can stain your teeth too. Regular aging can also cause your teeth to turn yellow.
The American Dental Association recommends visiting a licensed dentist prior to whitening your teeth. Your dentist is, by far, the best source of information on your oral health.
According to Statista, over 39 million Americans used teeth whiteners in 2017 alone.
In 2007 a study proved that people with whiter teeth were perceived by others as successful, outgoing, and confident.
