Professional teeth whitening is worth its weight in gold. It may seem like a small thing, but studies show that a great smile can lead to better opportunities. Not only does dental whitening make you feel more confident, but whiter teeth project a healthier and more attractive visage. At Casler Dental Group, we can help you get the smile you want.
Whitening Your Teeth Can Land You a Better Job
It may be hard to believe, but according to an Invisalign study, people with straight, white teeth are perceived as smarter and more successful. According to the same survey, if two people with the same qualifications apply for the same job, the person with better teeth is 45% more likely to land it.
Whitening: Tooth Stain Removal
Even if you brushed your teeth seven times a day and rinsed eight times a day, your teeth would still stain. Nobody is immune. The good news is that experienced dentists, like Dr. Casler, can get rid of teeth stains.
Sure, these days, thousands of over-the-counter teeth whitening options are available — but none compare to what a dentist can do. In short, a gel strip is no competition for high-tech professional gear. Plus, over-the-counter options can take over a month to work, but a dentist can make your teeth dazzle in just one visit.
Types of Teeth Stains
Extrinsic stains affect the outer tooth layer, aka the enamel. Tobacco, coffee, tea, red wine, tomato juice, and soda are the main culprits, and long-term use of any can render OTC teeth whitening kits virtually useless.
Stains that develop in a tooth’s dentin — or inner structure — are called intrinsic. They usually affect one to three teeth and typically present as yellow or black splotches. Several things lead to extrinsic stains, including:
- Too much fluoride as a child
- Tooth trauma
OTC treatments are topical and don’t work on intrinsic tooth stains. In the past, the only solutions were porcelain veneers and dental crowns, which covered the problem. Thankfully, dental technology has advanced. Today, we have the tools and equipment to remove intrinsic stains without the need for complicated dental cosmetic measures.
The Casler Dental Group handles all manners of teeth whitening — from the simple to the complex. We’ve seen it all and have the tools and skills to make your teeth glow. Get in touch with us today with any questions or to book an appointment.
