Why Teeth Whitening Is So Popular

Cosmetic dentistry is in the spotlight these days. More people are concerned with how their teeth look and their overall oral health, with teeth whitening becoming all the rage. In fact, it’s fair to say that teeth whitening is the most popular dental treatment on the market. But why is this procedure so popular?

Here at Oasis Smiles, we love helping our patients brighten their smiles. You may be on the fence about having your teeth whitened or wondering what it’s all about and whether or not it’s the right choice for you. To help you out, we’ve put together a list of reasons why more people are getting their teeth whitened than ever before.

6 benefits of teeth whitening


1. An improved appearance

You might already have the straightest smile and a beautiful mouth full of healthy teeth, but everyone faces damage at some point. Whether it’s soda stains, tea and coffee stains, or you’re a smoker, teeth change color over time.

Sure, you can whiten your teeth in your selfies with the right filter on your smartphone. But, why go to all that post-editing effort when you can have the real deal 24/7? Just imagine how you’ll feel the first time you see your new, sparkling smile in a photo – or when you receive all the compliments bound to come your way!

2. An unbeatable self-confidence boost

When you notice an improved appearance in the mirror or in those selfies, your confidence will soar. Whether you’re standing up for a big presentation, heading out on a date, or just browsing around the mall, you’re sure to want to show off your pearly whites.

3. A healthier mouth

Oral health is an important part of any dental procedure, and it’s important to your overall health, too. Poor oral health can result in a myriad of problems later on in life, such as cancer, organ failure, and even heart conditions.

When you have your teeth whitened, it removes stains immediately, allowing your teeth to strengthen and become even healthier.

4. Less focus on wrinkles

Teeth whitening won’t get rid of wrinkles, but it does minimize their appearance. That’s because a white smile shifts the focus on your face to your mouth.

5. An affordable price

Teeth whitening can alter your appearance rather significantly, but it’s not like resorting to going under the knife. You can update your look significantly without breaking the bank.

6. Use of safe, custom-fitted trays

If you’ve been considering an over-the-counter teeth whitening treatment, you may want to reconsider. Many treatments are known to cause significant damage to your gums and even the tooth enamel.

With our customized whitening trays that fit your teeth perfectly, you can expect your at-home teeth whitening process to be completely safe and comfortable. You’ll also receive professional advice on how to properly look after your new, pearly-white smile.
