Turn Back Time

White teeth are more than just some Hollywood ideal; in fact, in the animal world (which includes us humans), white teeth are a sign of health, vitality, and ample nutrition. Interestingly, just as animals choose a mate based on the color of their coats or the brightness of their feathers, humans have a few markers that indicate worthiness, strength, and youth. And teeth play a central role.

As you age, your teeth are some of the first areas on your body to reveal the passing of the years. As your enamel wears down, the brown dentin underneath begins to show through, resulting in dull, yellowing teeth. While you may be able to cover up hair loss or tackle wrinkling skin, your yellow teeth give you away the moment you open your mouth.

So, the next time you review your anti-aging efforts, remember that teeth whitening is a key step toward a more youthful appearance.

Strength and Confidence

Imagine for a moment that Dwayne Johnson comes on screen, his muscles rippling, and smiles, only to reveal discolored teeth. It wouldn’t be a stretch to say that the strength and confidence he exudes would tumble a few notches.

A study conducted about 10 years ago found that there are some powerful benefits to a whiter smile. For example, 65% of participants were deemed more “professional” after their teeth were whitened and 61% were viewed as more successful.

So, while we can’t provide you with Mr. Johnson’s abs, we can help you get you a bright, confident smile with our professional teeth whitening.

A Healthy Outlook

When you met someone back before the internet and social media, you had to judge the person based solely upon their appearance. Dating back thousands of years, humans have looked each other up and down, sizing up each other’s health with nothing but a glance.

The role of white teeth was enormously important in showing the world that you were healthy both inside and out, eating a proper diet full of nutrients.

While we have much more to go on these days, we still instinctively make snap assessments about a person’s health and wellness based on nothing more than a quick glance. With whiter teeth, you can ensure that your first impression is one that speaks volumes about your vitality.

A Picture is Forever(ish)

Speaking of the internet and social media, a bright white smile jumps out from the screen for years to come. If you want to make sure that you’re looking your best and brightest in all of your photos, a quick whitening session with us ensures that your smile is one that stands the test of social media time.

It’s Quick and Easy

Our last point is a simple one: Our teeth whitening process is quick and easy. Once we clean up your teeth, removing any debris and plaque, we apply a whitening gel, which is activated by a special light. This process takes only 15 minutes, and your results are immediate. As cosmetic procedures go, teeth whitening arguably delivers the most bang for your buck.

If you want to whiten your teeth in just one visit to get ready for a summer full of smiling photos, please give us a call or use the online scheduling tool to book an appointment.
