The Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Teeth WhiteningIs your smile as white and beautiful as it could be? If you are disappointed in your smile because of yellowing or staining, it’s time to discover the benefits of teeth whitening. Dr. Joel E. Johnson in Columbia, SC, offers a complete line-up of dental services including professional teeth whitening to enhance your smile!

Causes of dull teeth

There are many reasons why you may have a darker smile. Tobacco use, coffee and tea consumption, and eating darkly pigmented foods like blueberries are just a few of the reasons why your smile may have lost its brightness.

One of the main causes of a yellowing smile is normal aging. As you age, your tooth enamel becomes thinner, allowing you to see the layer of dentin that lies underneath. This dentin layer is yellow, so its exposure will give your smile a dull look as you age.

More about teeth whitening

These are just a few of the benefits you will enjoy with professional teeth whitening:

  • A brighter, whiter smile, because you can whiten your smile up to 8 shades whiter
  • Long-lasting results, because the effects of professional teeth whitening can last up to 5 years
  • Safe treatment, because professional teeth whitening products have been rigorously tested and approved by the American Dental Association

In addition to these benefits, in-office professional teeth whitening treatment is also quick—only taking about an hour! The in-office treatment is the perfect choice if you want a whiter smile in a hurry, or if you have a special event coming up.

There is also a take-home whitening kit that contains everything you need to whiten your smile safely and effectively at your own convenience.
