The Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Do you remember the days when your smile was white, bright and beautiful? If you are like most adults, your lovely smile has gradually darkened after years of exposure to dark-hued foods and drinks. Fret not, Pleasant Hill Dental is here to return your smile to glory. If you are dissatisfied with the look of your smile, our teeth whitening solutions will lighten its hue to the perfect shade. Once your teeth are whitened, you will look younger and feel that much more confident in your personal aesthetic.

A Quick Explanation of Teeth Whitening

Teeth stain as a result of exposure to certain foods and beverages. Such exposure does not cause permanent damage to the teeth. Rather, these stains can be eliminated with professional teeth whitening1. Visit our office for teeth whitening and we will reverse the stains with surface-level treatment that dramatically enhances the look of your smile. As explained below, there are countless benefits to professional teeth whitening.

Teeth Whitening is Safe and Effective

There is a common misconception that teeth whitening compromises tooth enamel. Others errantly believe teeth whitening results in heightened sensitivity to cold and hot foods. The truth is teeth whitening causes no harm at all. This is a painless beautification procedure that produces fantastic results in surprisingly little time. Ask anyone who has had their teeth whitened at our office about the treatment and you will find it is highly effective, harmless and can be completed in less than an hour.

Teeth Whitening Makes You Look Younger Without the use of Needles

Too many people turn to Botox, plastic surgery and other extreme measures in the quest to look young. Opt for teeth whitening and you will not be exposed to any needles, knives or other potentially painful surgical instruments. Teeth whitening is a highly effective anti-aging procedure that is non-invasive yet produces real results. Once your teeth are whitened, you really will look several years, if not several decades younger.

Teeth Whitening Works Faster Than Over-the-counter Products

Over-the-counter teeth whitening products supposedly brighten the teeth to the same level as professional teeth whitening performed in the dentist’s office. However, in reality, teeth whitening products purchased at the store are nowhere near as effective as the teeth whitening performed in the dentist’s office. Spend your money on over-the-counter teeth whitening strips, gels and toothpastes and you might not notice results for upwards of several weeks or several months. Alternatively, professional teeth whitening performed in the dentist’s office will whiten the teeth upwards of 10 shades in a single appointment.

Professional Teeth Whitening is Maintained With Ease

Visit our office for teeth whitening and you will not have to do anything to maintain the lovely white shade aside from brushing, flossing and avoiding foods/drinks with dark hues across the next 24 hours. The same cannot be said of alternative teeth whitening methods. Those who have tried supposed teeth whitening solutions available at local stores learn their lesson the hard way. There is no sense reapplying over-the-counter teeth whitening products every couple days or weeks when a quick visit to our office can accomplish superior results with minimal effort.

Professional Teeth Whitening Attacks Intrinsic Stains

Perhaps the most important difference between professional teeth whitening and DIY teeth whitening attempted with over-the-counter products is the fact that the professional approach attacks those deeply-set intrinsic stains as well as extrinsic stains. Over-the-counter teeth whitening products merely address superficial extrinsic stains along the enamel of the teeth. If you take the DIY route, it is only a matter of time until the superficial stains you address eventually return and compromise the aesthetic of your teeth.

Teeth Whitening at the Dentist’s Office Does not Cause Sensitivity

If you were to poll those who have tried professional teeth whitening at the dentist’s office and over-the-counter teeth whitening products, you would find those who took the DIY route ended up with much more sensitive teeth. Those who use over-the-counter teeth whitening products commonly complain of pain and sensitivity. Professional treatments rarely, if ever, spur such complaints.

Professional Teeth Whitening Boosts Your Confidence

Teeth whitening performed at the dentist’s office will do much more than improve your appearance; this approach to smile beautification will also enhance your confidence to boot. Once your teeth are whitened to the perfect shade of white for your unique skin tone, you will no longer feel as though you have to hide your teeth when talking or laughing. You will smile widely, putting all of your teeth on display for the world to see.
