Have you ever wondered how celebrities look so young and healthy? Do you wonder how you too could have smile full of big white teeth like your favorite stars?
But what once was just for movie-stars and the wealth is now easily obtainable for everyone. White teeth boost self-confidence and help make a good impression. Teeth naturally discolor for various reasons including age. In addition, over time, enamel in teeth wears and becomes translucent, making teeth appear more yellowish in color. Teeth can also be stained by foods and drinks as well as by habits such as smoking and chewing tobacco.
What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a dental cosmetic procedure that removes stains and discoloration of teeth. Teeth whitening can be done with over-the-counter toothpastes, in office whitening treatments, and at home whitening, depending on the level or whitening desired.
Teeth whitening is not the best options for everyone, and it’s important to know you can have perfectly healthy teeth that are not movie-star white. While many seek the boost in confidence that having white teeth can give, the most important thing that you can do for your teeth is to keep them brushed, flossed, and free of plaque build-up. Regular dental check-ups and care to protect teeth are all more important than the white-ness of the teeth compared to someone else!
