The Stigma of Stained Teeth

One of the first things other people will notice about you is your smile. A genuinely warm smile will most likely attract similarly positive vibes from the people around you. On the other hand, if your smile is somehow forced or fake, this will also be felt by other people who may not feel as kindly towards you. Aside from the warmth and sincerity of your smile, its appearance also has a significant effect on your overall countenance.

When you smile, even the slightest teeth imperfection can have a huge impact on your appearance. Dark, stained teeth can make you look instantly unhealthy, because teeth stains are easily associated with poor dental health. Regardless of how fit your body appears to be, your stained teeth can give others a sense that you may not be taking good care of your health. You may also be perceived as careless or lacking in discipline, and people might assume that you do not have the dedication to keep your teeth looking bright and white.

How do you deal with the stigma of stained teeth? Teeth whitening treatments done in the dentist’s clinic can improve the whiteness of your teeth by a few shades in under an hour’s time. Teeth whitening done in-office are safest since they are administered by your dentist, and can give the most effective whitening results. Teeth whitening kits used at home can improve the appearance of stained teeth, but it will take a much longer time for the results to be visible.
