Teeth Whitening – The Most Common Cosmetic Teeth Procedure

Teeth Whitening

Feeling comfortable in your own skin is as important as anything else in life, but for some, it can be the most challenging part of their day. Unfortunately, as societal rankings for what looks desirable grow out of proportion, more and more people become ashamed of their appearances and obsess over how they can change certain aspects of themselves to fit the mould that society has deemed acceptable. However, unless you possess magical powers to airbrush yourself every morning before leaving the house, you will most likely not be able to achieve those results. 

The truth is everyone is beautiful in their own way, and the attributes that differentiate you from everyone else should be celebrated instead of hidden. But that doesn’t mean you can’t seek some help to boost your self-confidence. For example, getting your hair done, exercising and practicing daily self-care are excellent ways to improve your appearance, and we can take it a step further by giving you a bright and beautiful smile with our cosmetic teeth services.

The Power of Teeth Whitening

When we hear the term ‘cosmetic dentistry,’ the first thing that is likely to come to mind is teeth whitening. Of course, whitening is a standard procedure, and many live by it to keep their smiles as bright as possible, but for those who have yet to try it, you may be wondering if it will be an effective solution. 

Many things account for the colour of your teeth, including genetics, certain foods and beverages, and the frequency and aggressiveness of your dental hygiene. So, even if you have an extensive morning and evening oral hygiene routine, you may still not be entirely happy with the colour of your teeth. 

Unfortunately, not much can be done for genetic contributions, but teeth whitening has proven to lift the shade of teeth considerably and give patients a more desirable, healthy-looking smile. 

Should You Use At-Home Teeth Whitening Kits?

If you are particularly focused on the shimmer and shine of your teeth, you may feel compelled to buy every at-home teeth whitening kit you can find, but will it actually make a difference? 

The truth is, it may cause more harm than good. Excessive use of teeth whitening products, such as bleaching agents, can lead to tooth erosion, thinning of the enamel and increased tooth sensitivity. Always consult your dentist before trying at-home teeth whitening products.
