When it comes to popular cosmetic dentistry procedures, teeth whitening is certainly at the top of the list.

In fact, according to statisticbrain.com…

  • Thus far, in 2017, the annual teeth whitening industry has made over $11,000,000,000!
  • Consumers spent an average of $1,400,000,000 on teeth whitening procedures and products.
  • 74% of Americans believe that an unattractive smile can hurt your chances for career success.

And as a dentist, I know firsthand that there’s nothing superficial about wanting to have a shiny, pearly white smile.

That’s right! Aside from looking good, there are actually many benefits teeth whitening can provide to people.

Here are 5 common benefits of getting your teeth whitened…

Benefit #1 — Look Younger

Many years ago, living to the ripe old age of 40 was seen as a compliment.

However, in today’s modern world, 40 is the new 20. And thanks to better healthcare and science, many older people feel very youthful as they age into their 50s, 60s, 70s, and beyond.

The one downside–the physical features of our bodies don’t always get the memo that we are young and youthful.

And thanks to natural enamel thinning that occurs when you age, teeth yellowing can make you appear much older than you really are.

Not to worry though! There is a way you can treat yourself to brilliantly white teeth no matter your age! And it’s as simple as visiting your dentist for a teeth whitening treatment!

Teeth whitening is a great way to polish up your teeth and give yourself a radiant, youthful smile.

Use NUYU Teeth Whitening treatment, and your friends will never believe you’re turning 50 for the fifth time this year!

Benefit #2 — Improved Self-Esteem

You know that feeling when you put on your favorite shirt that’s really flattering, you are having a good hair day, and you just feel good in your own skin…

Feels good, doesn’t it?

There’s no shame in saying yes to that question.

Having good self-esteem is important for everybody. Yet, unfortunately, people often lack self-esteem due to a yellowed smile.

I believe that you should never have to hide your beautiful smile due to a little discoloration. Which is why I often recommend that my patients who have low self-esteem due to their teeth have their teeth whitened.

One simple treatment, and you’ll be beaming from ear to ear with a confident, radiant smile.

Benefit #3 — Make a Better First Impression

None of us like to admit it, but the truth is, judging someone by his or her appearance has long been rooted in our DNA.

In fact, according to Gordon Patzer, who has concluded three decades of research on physical attractiveness…

“Human beings are hardwired to respond more favorably to attractive people. Good-looking men and women are generally regarded to be more talented, kind, honest, and intelligent than their less attractive counterparts.”

It all stems from our primal need to find the most healthy, suitable mate.

Superficial. Yes.

Easy to disregard? Not so much.

The good news is this…

A smile is one of the first things that humans notice when meeting a new person. And when you come into an interview, go on a date, or join a new activity, a bright white smile does indeed give you the ability to make a better first impression.

Benefit #4 — Always Have a Camera-Ready Smile

Taking selfies…family portraits…getting your headshot for your church directory…

There are many reasons it’s beneficial to have a camera-ready smile for whenever the need to take a photo arises.

And don’t forget…as we mentioned above, whiter teeth can help make you look years younger.

All it takes is one simple teeth whitening appointment to ensure your friends and relatives don’t accidently mistake you for your mother in photos.

Benefit #5 — Healthier Teeth

If you spend money on whitening your teeth, there’s a good chance you’re going to take good care of them in order to keep them pearly white.

And, conscious care of your teeth leads to a happier, healthier mouth (and overall body)!

Not to mention that, if you’re having your teeth professionally whitened, your dentist will want to do a routine exam to ensure your chompers are healthy

At this appointment, your dentist will be able to detect if there are any issues like cavities or inflamed gums. From there, he or she will be able to give you a professional recommendation on how to fix the problem and keep your teeth healthy going forward.
