The Many Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular dental treatments for women and men looking to improve the way their smiles look. While scores of over-the-counter whitening products are available, professional whitening offers plenty of important advantages that just can’t be matched by a drugstore bleaching product. 

At Perfect Smiles of Reston, Aramesh Darvishian, DDS, offers both in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments to help every patient enjoy more beautiful smiles using the technique that suits their lifestyle and their goals. Here are eight benefits you can enjoy with a professional whitening treatment at our practice.

1. It’s a lot of bang for your buck

Professional teeth whitening is really popular for one main reason: It works. On top of that, compared with other cosmetic dentistry options, teeth whitening dramatically improves the way your smile looks for one low cost. It’s a budget-friendly solution for completely transforming your smile.

2. The results are long-lasting

Professional whitening uses strong, safe solutions designed to provide results that last a lot longer than over-the-counter products. Depending on how well you care for your teeth, your results could last for a year or more. 

In fact, research shows patients reported improved quality of life for as long as two years after a professional whitening treatment. Plus, professional whitening treatments can be repeated as needed to keep your smile looking its best. 

3. Your results will be more consistent

Compared with over-the-counter whitening products that use a one-size-fits-all approach, professional whitening uses techniques aimed at making sure your teeth are uniformly white — even the crevices between your teeth. 

Over-the-counter products designed for the general public can’t replicate that type of coverage. Plus, professional whitening allows you to customize the amount of whitening you want based on your unique goals.

4. There’s less risk of sensitivity

Custom-fitted trays ensure the whitening agent stays on the tooth surfaces while keeping it off your gums. During in-office treatments, your provider can optimize your treatment to make sure your gums aren’t irritated.

5. You’ll get an instant boost in confidence

With in-office whitening, you’ll see your results after just one hour, so you can have your treatment in the morning and be ready to dazzle your friends in the evening. Professional at-home treatments work a lot faster than over-the-counter bleaching products, thanks to the stronger solutions and custom-fitted trays that keep the whitening agents on your tooth surfaces. 

6. Your smile will look healthier

Yellow, dingy, stained teeth give the appearance of poor oral hygiene, and that can influence the way people view you. Teeth whitening removes stains and yellowing from all sorts of causes, for a dazzling smile that looks healthy and well cared for.

7. You can trim years from your age

Tooth stains and yellowing are a lot more common as we get older, thanks to natural thinning of the tooth’s white enamel layer. Professional teeth whitening restores a youthful, bright smile to rejuvenate your appearance.

8. You can enjoy better oral health

Research shows that when your smile looks great, you want to do all you can to keep it that way. That means you may be more likely to brush and floss routinely and have regular dental cleanings — habits that are good for your smile and for your oral health, too.

Professional teeth whitening improves your smile, and it offers plenty of other benefits, too. To learn more about how you can benefit from whitening treatments at our Reston, Virginia, practice, book an appointment online or over the phone today.
