Sparkle for the Holidays: 5 Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

We all want to look and feel our best. There are many teeth whitening solutions available over-the-counter, but they lack the thoroughness and safety provided by a dentist. The benefits of a professional teeth whitening treatment are plentiful. Here are five reasons you should gift yourself a professional service this holiday season.

Healthier mouth, healthier you

Teeth yellow as we age. As tooth enamel thins, it allows more visibility of the internal structure, the dentin, which is naturally more yellow. Staining can also happen over time when dark-coloured foods and drinks like coffee, red wine, and berries are consumed. Tobacco use is also a culprit for causing stains.

Your dental team can remove deep discolouration that whitening toothpastes and other over-the-counter solutions can’t alter. Dr. Bains will fully inspect your mouth and gums before a customized whitening is done, allowing for any oral issues you may have to be identified and treated if necessary. By examining your teeth and removing stains, they can help you achieve a healthier smile.

Opportunities knock

When it comes to your teeth, individuals with attractive smiles are often regarded as being more successful and intelligent, leading to greater opportunities in employment and social settings.

A bright smile can reduce self-consciousness and leave you feeling confident and satisfied with your overall appearance. The cumulative effect may have a positive impact on your mental health and sense of well-being.

Use ’em or lose ’em

Have you checked your benefits lately? The 2021 insurance plan year ends for many on December 31. If you have a dental plan and/or health spending account, take advantage of your benefits before the year ends.

Call your insurance provider to find out what your plan covers and how long you have before your benefits expire. Although whitening is not generally covered by traditional plans, some health spending plans may provide coverage. If you have questions about the cost of teeth whitening, call Lewis Estates Dental Centre.

Reliability and safety first

Trust your oral health to a professional. Buying a whitening solution that isn’t customized to your specific needs can increase tooth sensitivity. A dentist will be there to carefully monitor the whitening process and make sure you have proper follow up once treatment is completed.  

Quick and effective

Having your teeth whitened by a dentist allows for treatment that is tailored to your mouth and specific oral needs, versus the one-size-fits-all approach of over-the-counter kits. Whether you’re looking for a quick in-office or home treatment, Dr. Bains and the team at Lewis Estates Dental has you covered with solutions that can achieve dramatic results safely and quickly.
