If you are even considering having teeth whitening treatment, then it’s a sign that you should do it, because that means you are not pleased with your smile. Tooth discoloration is something that happens gradually over time. You are not even aware its happening until you look in the mirror one day, and realize that your teeth are not as bright as they once were.
At this point, your self-esteem and confidence can begin to fade, gradually changing your habits and personality. You may begin hiding your smile behind your hand, evading cameras, and avoiding close contact with other people. When you have teeth whitening treatment, you will be surprised at the changes it can make in your sense of self-worth and your life. Teeth whitening can result in many benefits such as:
- Improved self-esteem – One of the greatest benefits of teeth whitening is psychological. Your self-respect and confidence increase, and psychologists have found that people who value themselves tend to be happier and more successful in their endeavors.
- Great first impressions – Your smile is the first thing people see when meeting you, and typically the last thing they forget. An attractive smile gives the impression of warmth and friendliness, which is a good perception for people to have of you.
- Job success – Studies have shown that people with white teeth are perceived as healthy, outgoing, intelligent, responsible, and reliable, these are the very traits employers want in their employees. A study conducted at Loyola Marymount in 2007 found that people with attractive smiles are more likely to obtain interviews, receive job offers, and receive pay raises.
- Look more youthful – Discolored, stained, yellowed or dull teeth make us look older than we are. Teeth whitening can take several years off of our appearance.
