The Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Are your teeth a little dull or yellow? Your Naperville, IL, dentists at Dental Pointe, Dr. Rani Seeth, Dr. Fariha Querishi and Dr. Poornima Gangaji, can help you brighten your smile with teeth whitening.

Teeth whitening benefits

Whitening is an excellent, inexpensive solution if your teeth have become dull due to aging, using tobacco products, or eating or drinking foods and beverages that contain dark pigments. Your dentist uses a hydrogen peroxide gel that whitens your smile by bleaching your tooth enamel. The entire whitening process takes just 60 to 90 minutes in our Naperville, IL, dental office.

Whitening results usually last two to three years at a minimum, although you can extend your results by avoiding tobacco products and limiting the amount of darkly pigmented foods and beverages you consume.

Professional teeth whitening offers these advantages:

  • Enhanced Self-Esteem: It's not unusual to feel a little self-conscious due to a dull or stained smile. Teeth whitening boosts your self-esteem and may help you feel more confident in social situations.
  • Improved Career Prospects: Like it or not, people judge us on our smiles. In fact, almost 50 percent of people surveyed by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry said that a smile was the feature they remembered the most after meeting someone new. When you want to make a good impression, a bright, white smile is a must. Whitening your teeth just may help you land an exciting new job or promotion.
  • A Younger Appearance: Duller teeth are often associated with the aging process. Unfortunately, your teeth can become dull and stained even if you're still fairly young, particularly if you enjoy coffee, tea, red wine, or cola. Whitening your teeth is a simple way to look younger and more refreshed.
  • Noticeable Results: If you've ever been disappointed with an over-the-counter teeth whitening kit, you may wonder if professional whitening can really help your smile. Although both drugstore and professional whitening products contain hydrogen peroxide, your dentist uses a stronger form that's more effective in quickly removing stains. Most people notice a three- to eight-shade improvement in their teeth after professional whitening.
