Smiling is something we generally do every day. We smile to communicate with others in a friendly manner, to indicate that we are happy, or to show that we are in a good mood. If you are embarrassed by your discolored teeth, it can sometimes prevent you from smiling as much, which can have a negative effect on your mental health. Smiling is good for the soul and can really help with positive mental health. If you find that you are embarrassed or self-conscious about your smile because your teeth are discolored, you should look into teeth whitening.
It might be tempting to try over-the-counter remedies for teeth whitening, but they rarely give you great results, if you notice any change at all. The best way to get good results is to see a dentist for teeth whitening. A dentist has many different tools that can use for you to make your smile bright and white. A dentist can fit you with custom bleach trays that you can fill with bleach and wear at home to whiten your teeth. This way, you get trays that are molded to your teeth and give you a perfect fit. If the trays do not fit properly, they can make sores in your mouth or cause your teeth to shift. A dentist will make sure the fit is good and give you bleach that is safe for your teeth.
Another option is laser whitening, which is done right in the dental office. This will give you immediate results and your teeth will get whiter with each visit. Your dentist can help you decide what method is best for you and will work with you to get the best results so that you can feel confident and happy every time you smile.
