When we think of our image and how we want to look, we may not initially think of the appearance of our teeth. The fact is, however, that the smile is a key factor in a person’s self-image. It is, as well, directly involved in the kind of first impression we make. When the smile is attractive and the teeth are bright, there is an air of confidence that causes one to be perceived as successful and popular. Teeth that are yellow or discolored do very little in the way of helping confidence. To correct stains that naturally occur with time, all that is needed is professional teeth whitening, from your dentist near Normal, Illinois.
There are several reasons for the discoloration of teeth. Genetics may have a small role in the natural shade of white seen in our smile. The color of teeth also changes as a result of deposits made by common foods and beverages, such as coffee or red wine. While we may not be able to do anything to stop the process of discoloration, there is a lot that can be done to keep your smile looking its best.
There is a wide variety of teeth whitening options from which to choose today. Some are performed in the dentist’s office, giving the impression of greater efficiency. Other whitening solutions may be purchased in a local retail store, giving the illusion of affordability and convenience. In truth, there is much more to teeth whitening and the perceptions that many people have are inaccurate.
At Eastland Dental Center, patients may choose to have their teeth whitened in our comfortable office. The Zoom! whitening system is chosen by Bloomington area patients who do not want to wait for their brightest smile. In-office whitening is safe, effective, and an ideal method for some situations. It is not, however, any more powerful at achieving the desired result than home whitening.
