Whether for a birthday, graduation, or the holidays, finding the ideal present for a friend or loved one is challenging. While you could give them the newest electronic device or the latest fashion accessory, it will be outdated in just a few months. Why not give them a gift that will keep on giving? Teeth whitening can give the special person in your life a boost of confidence. Here’s why professional teeth whitening is the perfect gift for any occasion.
Benefits of an Attractive Smile
Teeth are important for more than chewing food. They can also affect a person’s self-esteem if they are unattractive. The appearance of teeth also influences first impressions. Aesthetic flaws can take many forms, but tooth discoloration is a common complaint among adults of all ages.
Teeth come in many shades and tones naturally. However, brown and yellow teeth are often viewed as dirty or unhealthy. Insecurities about their color can lead to confidence issues that can affect a person’s quality of life and career potential.
Teeth whitening can surface stains by up to 8 shades, with results that can last for many months or years. A whitening treatment can boost your loved one’s confidence to help them feel their best.
White teeth are also associated with youth, confidence, and success. Your loved one will have a professional image and look more approachable, which may lead to new career opportunities. Teeth whitening can give them priceless benefits because a bright smile will never go out of style.
Options for a Bright Smile
Cosmetic dentistry provides multiple options for treating tooth stains, including:
- In-Office Teeth Whitening: A protective barrier is placed over the lips and gums before a highly concentrated whitening agent is applied to the teeth. A dental light is used for three 15-minute intervals to activate the whitening ingredients to dissolve stains.
- Take-Home Teeth Whitening: In-office results can be achieved at home using a kit available from a cosmetic dentist. The whitening gel and trays are used daily for 2 weeks to whiten teeth gradually.
Don’t waste money on a gift that will sit on a shelf collecting dust in a few months. Invest in the well-being and success of your loved one by giving them a vibrant smile that they will be proud of.
