Look Younger Through Whiter Teeth

Posted on 4/10/2017 by Boeckel
A patient before, and after a teeth whitening treatment.
As we age, our smiles tend to yellow and become dingy. If you want to give yourself the ability to look younger, doing something as simple as whitening your teeth could do the trick. It can allow you to appear years younger, and help you feel more confident.

Having a bright smile that you show off to the world gives you confidence, which can also give people the impression you are younger than your Driver's license may show.

Whitening Options for Your Teeth

There are quite a few options when it comes to getting a whiter smile. There are home remedies, such as lemon juice and baking soda, but some of them can be dangerous. Using something acidic on your teeth may improve the appearance of surface stains, but it can cause erosion and damage to your teeth, and should be avoided.

Drug stores offer lots of over-the-counter whitening products, but many of them are not very strong. Some of them are just not safe for your teeth, too. If your dentist tells you it is safe, you can try some of them, but don't expect too much. Most of them will only give you about a one shade difference if they work at all.

The best option when it comes to whitening your teeth is to go in and see your dentist. They likely have more than one whitening option. Many offices have in-office and at-home options that can give you a much brighter smile than anything you could buy at a drug store.

To find out what whitening options would be best to help your smile appear years younger, contact our office. They can give you safe options that aren't going to leave you with damage or unfulfilled hopes by not doing enough to whiten your teeth.
