One of the first things people notice is your smile. In fact, a survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry found that 48% of adults said that a smile was the most memorable feature after first meeting someone. It had a bigger impact than what a person says!
Part of having a confident smile is beautiful, white teeth. There are a lot of products on the market that claim to be the best in teeth whitening, so it can be hard to know what does and doesn’t work. We’re here to share three common myths about teeth whitening that you shouldn’t believe, and why:
- Myth: If I have fillings, I can’t get teeth whitening. This myth is not true! Teeth that have had fillings can be whitened just as well—just the fillings themselves can’t be whitened. You can updated your fillings to color match your teeth enamel if needed.
- Myth: Teeth whitening will damage my teeth enamel. Also false! In the hands of a dental professional, whitening is safe for your teeth and will not cause damage.
- Myth: The final result will not look natural. Whitening will not cause your teeth to look unusually bright; it is a progressive process that depends on the starting shade of your teeth. Only a certain level of whitening will be achievable, which your dentist will be able to explain to you.
If you are looking to boost your confidence through a brighter smile, teeth whitening is a great way to achieve it. After the first treatment, you should notice results that will continue to improve with additional use. Reach out to our office to learn more about our teeth whitening solutions.
