Teeth whitening services are the perfect way to increase confidence and first impressions
Teeth whitening continues to be a very popular new spa service that is easy, fast and affordable. In just 15 minutes, you can get a whiter, brighter smile that instantly conveys confidence, beauty and health. Today, teeth whitening can be performed simply and quickly in any spa setting. A whitening agent gel is applied to the teeth, then an LED lamp emitting cold blue light is placed directly in front of the teeth to accelerate the whitening process. The whitening process takes from 15 to 20 minutes with visible results in just one treatment, depending upon the severity of staining. With just one whitening session you will see immediate results. You can expect to have teeth 2 to 3 shades whiter, with additional sessions to get the best and longest lasting results.
Enhanced Self Image: An attractive smile is a vital part of a healthy self-image and will instantly boost confidence, leaving a lasting impression. Studies show that 84% of adults perceive having an attractive smile as being important. A great smile enhances the ability to get a job, receive a promotion and to find love! When meeting new people, 85% consider a person's smile to be very important and is one of the first qualities noticed. Almost 9 out 10 Americans report that people with good teeth are more attractive. A vital part of a good smile is having whiter, brighter teeth and the confidence to flash a wide grin!
Teeth Sensitivity: All teeth whitening is not the same, so do your homework and find salons and spas that offer teeth whitening that is safe, effective and will not cause teeth or gum sensitivity. Ronnie Weir is President of Laser Wellness PMA and offers Whiter Brighter Smiles teeth whitening services. He says, “Look for services using whitening gels that contain carbamide peroxide instead of hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide breaks down faster and causes more sensitivity to teeth and gums. As the Carbamide breaks down, it creates oxidation on the surface of the teeth, which then results in the teeth becoming whiter. Oxidation works to lift stains, yet does not make teeth more porous or cause sensitivity.”
Contraindications: Most of us are good candidates for whitening services, yet there are a few medical contraindications. You should be sixteen or older, as whitening could irritate nerve endings on immature teeth. Pregnant or nursing women should not get teeth whitening, or those who may be allergic to peroxide or have very sensitive teeth or gums. You should have good general dental heath with no periodontal disease. Teeth whitening will not work on dental restorations, crowns and veneers. Some individuals’ teeth may also be too stained for whitening or have discoloration due to medications.
Avoid Staining: Once you have achieved your ideal shade of whitening, you can expect the effect to last 6 to 12 months. To keep teeth at their whitest for longer, avoid food and beverages that cause stains including acidic food. Acidity promotes staining by eroding the dental enamel. Carbonated beverages and sports drinks are big culprits and smoking also causes staining with nicotine. Foods like tomato sauce, soy sauce, curry and berries also contribute to stains and erosion. Can’t live without your coffee, tea, red wine or cola? Sip them through a straw and drink water frequently to rinse off teeth.
Get A Series: The best results will come from a series of teeth whitening treatments. Weir shares that his South Dakota walk-in clinic offers a single whitening session of 20 minutes for $150. A package of three whitening treatments are priced at $300, offering a savings of $150. Additionally, Weir offers a home whitening kit for $150 that includes a LED unit, mouthpiece and 3cc syringe of whitening agent. A daily maintenance whitening pen is also available for $29.95. Weir often offers a deep discount for clients booking a series, such as 50% off the second service booked.
