6 reasons you should consider teeth whitening

6 reasons you should consider teeth whitening

Wish your smile was just that bit brighter? You’re not the only one. Teeth whitening is currently the most popular cosmetic dental treatment. 100,000 British people chose to lighten their teeth in the last year alone. But why?

White teeth used to be associated with Hollywood, with many A-list celebrities sporting a dazzling smile that seemed to come with a high price tag. However, with whitening now becoming more affordable, more people are opting to try out the treatment.

With different options available depending on your preferences, now is the best time to consider enhancing your smile. To help you decide if the procedure is right for you, here are six top reasons why you should consider teeth whitening this summer…


Teeth whitening is a non-invasive form of dentistry. This means that you can relax knowing that the procedure is safe and pain-free. To ensure that your dental health isn’t compromised, use a dental practitioner such as High Street Dental Practice to carry out the treatment.


In comparison to most dental treatments, teeth whitening is low cost. Results can be seen almost immediately, with teeth becoming several shades whiter in just a few short weeks.

Long Lasting

If carried out by a dentist, teeth whitening results can last anywhere between six months to three years. This is significantly longer than the results from home whitening kits. By making sure you look after your oral hygiene, this will certainly help to keep teeth brighter for longer.

Maintain better habits

It is proven that maintaining your teeth correctly will ensure long lasting results. By improving your diet and dental care routine and giving up smoking, you will benefit from whiter teeth that may last for years.

Boost Confidence & Self-Esteem

Subconsciously, we associate whiter teeth with good oral hygiene – 48% of people notice a smile before they take in anything else about a person. Teeth whitening can make your smile your best feature, complementing your facial features and giving the appearance of clearer skin. When your smile is as good as it can be, you will feel as if you can take on anything. You may even find that this leads to improvements in your social and professional life, thanks to this new-found confidence boost.

Younger Appearance

Because whiter teeth are associated with youth, teeth whitening can actually give you a younger appearance. In this way, you can reverse years of everyday staining and yellowing, with brighter, healthier-looking teeth.
