How To Avoid A Whitening Obsession

Do you ever look at your smile in the mirror after you’ve just watched a movie and wondered why your teeth look so dim compared to the smiles of the movie stars you’ve just seen on screen? Perhaps you pore over the pages of magazines, you see celebrities’ glowing grins online all the time, and you wish your teeth looked so beautiful! Unfortunately, when you decide you want very, very white teeth, it can lead to a teeth whitening obsession if you’re not careful. If you are careful, however, it can lead to a beautiful, healthy smile. Consider our suggestions.

Only Choose Professional Care

If you don’t want to accidentally get carried away with a teeth whitening obsession, don’t start purchasing whitening kits from the store. Instead, only brighten your smile with professional care at our practice. That way, we can guide you and make sure you’re making wonderful choices for your smile.

Stop Comparing Yourself To Images

About those movies, magazine pages, and more: They don’t represent reality. They’re often touched up, digitally enhanced, and more. We can help you achieve a beautiful white smile but remember, natural teeth aren’t an extremely vivid white.

Remember The Consequences

Don’t forget that when you become obsessed with teeth whitening and you whiten on your own over and over, you run the risk of damaging your entire smile. Teeth may even stop becoming whiter and instead, may begin looking somewhat transparent and unnatural.

Don’t Get Stuck On Teeth Whitening

Don’t forget that if you’re dealing with stubborn staining, you’re not stuck with teeth whitening. Instead of assuming it’s going to take a lot of treatments to succeed, remember that bonding or the use of veneers may be your answer instead.
