The Value of Using a Teeth Whitening Product Have you noticed the latest and greatest craze in “hot” looks these days? The craze to which I am referring is the dazzling white smiles that you see all over the television tube and the magazine pages. The celebrities are all sporting brilliant toothy smiles…I agree … that is not so unusual. But what about all of the regular people that you run into on a daily basis? I don’t know about you but I have noticed a huge difference in the brightness of the teeth of almost everyone I see. It is simply amazing! What a difference! What a difference a teeth whitening product can make in the brilliance of someone’s smile! I have even noticed a change in the demeanor of some of those same people. Those same friends, family and co-workers who are sporting those dazzling smiles are also sporting an improved level of self-esteem and it shows in almost everything they do. They walk with a bit more bounce in their step; they stand a bit straighter and appear considerably more confident as compared to when their teeth looked “normal”. Please understand that I’m not saying that using these whitening products will cure inferiority complexes…absolutely not! What I am saying is that these beautiful, shining white teeth improve their looks and they feel better about themselves. This “feeling better about me” attitude exudes everywhere and permeates into everything they do. They smile wider and more often, which causes others to do the same. It becomes infectious to all with whom they come into contact. What is a teeth whitening product? These are products that contain a whitening agent, usually carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide, that can be used daily to lighten your teeth. The peroxide works to remove surface and deeper staining that is caused by eating and drinking and smoking. Some of the foods that can cause the staining to occur are coffee, tea, red wine, some fruits and veggies and tobacco use. Over the years of our lives as we eat to live, the foods and drinks we consume form a film over the hard exterior surface of our teeth. Brushing with toothpaste that contains a mild abrasive can remove some of those surface stains. Because the enamel surface of our teeth is porous, the staining can go deeper and even the whitening toothpastes don’t stay on the teeth longer enough to effectively remove the deeper staining. The use of a teeth whitening product can go deeper to get those stains. Do you think your self-esteem could use a boost from the use of a teeth whitening product?
