Tooth Whitening Makes Your Smile Sparkle! Statistics reveal that Americans place a high value on their smile. According to an American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry® national survey:
92% of Americans believe an attractive smile is an important social asset. 85% of Americans believe an unattractive smile makes a person less appealing to the opposite sex. 74% of Americans believe an unattractive smile can hurt a person's chances for career success. 50% of Americans are not satisfied with the appearance of their own smile. If you are not happy with your smile, tooth whitening may provide the solution. Tooth Whitening procedures can help lighten coffee-stained teeth, remove cigarette and tobacco discolorations and correct yellowing in teeth due to aging. In general, bleaching works for most people. Tooth bleaching is most effective if your teeth are darkened from age, coffee, tea or smoking. Teeth darkened with the color of yellow, brown or orange respond better to lightening. Other types of gray stains caused by fluorosis, smoking or tetracycline can be lightened, but with less-than-satisfactory results.
There are different types of teeth whitening proceduces are available. As in any dental procedure, it is recommended that you consult with your dentist to find out which tooth whitening procedure is best for you
