Importance Of Teeth Whitening

If you are looking to improve the way your smile looks and already benefit from a healthy smile, then teeth whitening from your dentist can be your better choice. Learn more about all the ways that teeth whitening can improve your smile by reaching out to Dr. P Steven Wainess.

Healthy and Bright

Good dental hygiene habits at home, with daily brushing and flossing, along with in-office dental cleanings can make sure your smile remains clean and healthy. But unfortunately, it's the stains brought on by very common and popular foods and drinks can stain your teeth in ways that that good hygiene alone may not be able to remove. Teeth whitening can help remove these stains and make your teeth look much whiter and as healthy as you know they are.


The importance of a smile you are proud to show off cannot be discounted. Your smile is usually your first impression with others, and it's the sight that greets you every morning in the mirror, so in matters of self-esteem and confidence a smile free of troublesome stains can certainly help.

Whitening Options

You have access to a number of whitening options, including whitening toothpaste and other off-the-shelf treatments. If you are looking only for minor improvements over time, you can incorporate whitening toothpaste into your hygiene routine.

Over-the-counter products can be more effective and somewhat faster than toothpaste, but you need to be diligent about following manufacturer instructions and with research regarding the many products to find those that are reliable. Be wary of anything that promises drastic overnight results and that isn't ADA approved. Even then you could risk damaging your gums and teeth.

But if you still prefer the convenience of at-home whitening, your dentist also offers custom take-home trays so you can whiten your teeth on your own, but with the guidance of a professional.
