Dentist in Silver Spring MD
One of the first things you see when you look in the mirror and smile is your teeth and many of my patients are concerned about the how “white” their teeth look. The easiest and fastest way to improve your smile is by whitening your teeth.
Over time, the foods and drinks we consume such as sodas, coffee, tea, red wine gradually stain our teeth. Smoking will also stain your teeth. A dental cleaning will remove some of the lighter stains, however most stains require professional teeth whitening.
It’s obvious that how we perceive ourselves tells a lot about our overall health. Having low self-esteem can be the result of a poor self-image which leads even feelings of depression and ultimately a decline in your overall health.
Whiter Teeth also affects how other people think of us when we first meet according to a study performed by Proctor and Gamble:
“According to the three-part study, which included simulated job interviews, simulated first dates and a quantitative online survey; more than half of the study participants were more likely to be hired (58%) and received larger salary offers (53%) after their teeth had been whitened. The study also found that evaluators expressed a greater interest in continuing their interaction or “date” with more than half of the study participants (54%) after their teeth had been whitened.” (See more at: http://news.pg.com/press-release/pg-corporate-announcements/new-study-shows-whiter-teeth-can-lead- greater-success-work-#sthash.GVXymPA3.dpuf)
