Importance of Teeth Whitening

You’ve been brushing your teeth with whitening toothpaste, but your teeth still have a dull yellow look to them. Maybe you’ve tried the whitening strips, and they seem to work a little. You try all sorts of home remedies but your teeth seem to never look any different. Before we get to the HOW, let’s talk about WHY you need whiter teeth.

In a 2017 survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, 71% of women and 58% of men agreed that teeth are the first thing they notice in a potential partner! Other research shows that people with whiter and straighter teeth are perceived to be happier, more successful, healthier, and smarter. While these may seem like vain reasons, it actually goes much deeper than that. People have more self-confidence with whiter teeth. They have better working relationships with coworkers because they are taken more seriously, and their words carry more weight because others perceive them to be more trustworthy. You will not only smile more, you will also feel happier.

Then how can you achieve whiter teeth? The best way is to get them professionally whitened by your dentist. Dr. Jang can provide you with in-office chair-side teeth whitening that will yield several shades lighter color than the home remedies. You may not be able to get your teeth super white (and getting them insanely white might not be a good idea), but with the in-office professional whitening, your teeth will look much more improved.
