In this blog, Lakeview dentist Brittany Dickinson shares her thoughts on teeth whitening. This is something we do at Sugar Fix Dental Loft all the time. So much, in fact, that we’re opening a tooth whitening bar right inside our existing location. Look for more news about the launch of White Haute Teeth Whitening Bar in the coming months!

If you’re like most people, you’ve probably wondered whether your teeth can actually get truly white. Maybe you’ve seen certain models or celebrities with whiter than white smiles and thought, “I could never achieve anything close to that.” However, teeth whitening has come a long way and it absolutely is possible to have the sparkling white smile you’ve been dreaming about!

Teeth Whitening is a Great Option!

A recent survey showed 80% of Americans aged 18 to 49 want whiter teeth. In fact, 6 out 10 of us believe a whiter, brighter smile would boost our self-confidence. I am not at all surprised by this! When I see people walk out of our door with a whiter, brighter smile, I also notice they walk a little taller and generally feel much better about themselves than when they walked in.

It’s Never Been More Popular

Did you know that teeth whitening is the number one requested cosmetic dentistry service today? It’s true, and that popularity is continuing to soar more and more every year. It’s because people are understanding how affordable and effective in-office whitening treatments like the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ system or the GLO Whitening Treatment can be!

It Addresses the Most Common Causes

Discolored teeth can be a result of a number of different cosmetic issues or lifestyle choices. Smoking, eating, or drinking foods that can easily stain teeth, certain medications, aging, and genetics are all common causes.

Smoking is probably the most drastic cause of tooth discoloration since it’s often a steady, lifetime habit. However, even nicotine staining can be effectively reversed with in-office tooth whitening treatments. It typically takes 1-3 months to see the desired results, and if you can abstain from smoking during your treatments, even better!
