Improve your oral hygiene
First and foremost, a beautiful smile is worth looking after. Dentists have observed that patients who have had their teeth whitened tend to take care of them better in the long run. After all, you’ve gone to the effort of improving your smile with cosmetic dentistry, it makes sense that you would want to keep them looking that way! Therefore, people tend to take more care when cleaning their teeth, spend time flossing, and are more likely to have regular check-ups and professional cleanings with their dentist.
Raise your self esteem
Having your teeth whitened can significantly improve your self esteem. If you are more confident about your appearance, you naturally feel better in yourself and have more confidence in social situations. Research has shown that white teeth are even associated with intelligence and reliability.
Whiter teeth can knock years off your appearance! Sadly, stained, yellow teeth can make you look older than you are. Staining and yellowing happens gradually over time and can be a result of drinking coffee and tea, smoking, and even eating certain types of food.
