Langley Cosmetic Dentistry: The Benefits of Teeth Whitening

At JVR Dental in Langley, we know that a professional teeth whitening does more than just remove stains and a discoloured appearance. It provides you with a boost of self-confidence. Here are some of the benefits of teeth whitening from a Langley cosmetic dentist.

Professional Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening treatments bought at a drugstore, typically come in one size and strength to fit all teeth; however, when it comes to dental work, no two patients are alike. While the whitening trays and strips found at the store can provide good results for one patient, they may only provide partial whitening for another patient. Drugstore teeth whitening treatments can provide results for patients with light stains on their teeth, but will not do much for those with severe or intrinsic stains. This is because over-the-counter teeth whitening products contain only a small amount of whitening agent, usually only 3% peroxide. Professional teeth whitening from a Langley dentist can help remove severe stains, as their treatments offer up to 35% peroxide, producing up to ten shades brighter in about an hour.

Teeth Whitening Designed Specifically for You

Professional teeth whitening procedures provide even coverage of all teeth, unlike store bought products which do not always fit a smile perfectly. Both in-office and take-home teeth whitening options from a cosmetic dentist will be specifically designed to fit your specific smile. Choosing to have your teeth professionally whitened also provides control over how much whiter your teeth will be. Patients only need to let the dentist know how many shades brighter they would like their teeth to be, so that the dentist can adjust the strength of the whitening agent to provide the desire results.

Smile with Confidence

Patients with yellowed or stained smiles often smile with their mouth closed, which can cause others to find them unfriendly or lacking in self-esteem. Having professional teeth whitening treatment encourages patients to present their best smile to the world and can help increase their confidence. Teeth whitening can also encourage people to smile more, which works to increase a confidence booster into their physical appearance, as well as their psychological well-being.
