As a dentist’s wife, you have some funny conversations with people. Teeth whitening is almost always part of them.
Hardly dinner party material, I find these conversations head into dental details that might best be kept for the next visit to my husband.
This is because it’s common for people, when they find out you’re the wife of a dentist, to become immediately very self-conscious about their teeth. Usually the conversation will involve hands over mouths, mumblings about imperfections and lamentations about what they should have done.
I understand this. Totally.
As a child and teenager, before I enjoyed the benefit of dental care from my husband, I was guilty of exactly the same thing occasionaly. You know, having a personal self-conscious teeth moment or two. So I can relate when someone doesn’t feel good about what they see and wants to do something about it.
Which leads me to the question…
Why does ‘the conversation’ always start with teeth whitening?
The conversation around ‘doing something about it’ (i.e. the way your teeth look and how you feel about how they look) almost always starts with teeth whitening.
Because rarely does anyone who wants dental work done decide they’ll start with the hardest thing first. Which makes teeth whitening the perfect first cab off the rank. And the No. 1 dental tip for loving your smile.
If this is you, relax. Teeth whitening is an option if you’re not a celebrity and don’t want to take out a second mortgage.
The truth is, teeth whitening has come a long way. There are many solutions and we, like most dentists, offer a selection that help our patients achieve their teeth whitening objectives.
Teeth whitening results: whiter and a bit brighter
No longer the domain of a celebrity few, teeth whitening now is easy, affordable and accessible for anyone who wants it.
If you’re the kind of person who needs instant gratification, you may find in-chair teeth whitening works best for you. Requiring between an hour and 90 minutes of your time in a single sitting at your dentist, patients can enjoy the benefits of brighter, whiter teeth and someone else doing the work.
Others may prefer the take home whitening packs, which require more time (daily applications usually over two weeks), but yield equally positive results: a whiter smile you love.
We offer a range of teeth whitening solutions at Dental as Anything and have done for over 20 years. What’s great about that? We know what works.
Why whiten your teeth?
There are many reasons patients come to Dental as Anything for teeth whitening, but my answer to this question is simple. Whitening your teeth is one of the most cost effective and enduring ways a patient can improve the appearance of their teeth. It does not involve surgery, serious discomfort or time out from life.
Yes, it’s an aesthetic exercise, undertaken by many with the end goal a big white smile in snapshots of big life events (weddings, formals, significant birthdays). But more than, teeth whitening is a fabulous and relatively inexpensive way to value you.
Actually, what we find is that for many patients, whitening teeth becomes the start of ‘something’. With newly white teeth checked off, these patients look at caring for themselves ‘dentally’ in a new light. And we love that. With dental health one of the best indicators of overall health, taking good dental care is one of the kindest self-care moves a person can make.
