Brighter Isn’t Always Better!

Let’s admit it. We’ve all done it! Before sharing those cellphone selfies with friends, we tap that little icon to retouch our digital smiles, to make them look younger, fresher, and brighter. Appearance is important, but rather than artificially whiten, why not have it professionally done by your dentist?

We highly recommend teeth whitening to turn back the years on your smile and remove the stains that are commonly caused by food choices, beverages, tobacco and even some medications. It can restore confidence and make you smile more – just to show off your pearly whites. Just a word of caution, though: You can have too much of a good thing.

Extreme Measures

In an effort to reach Hollywood perfection, we often don’t take into account that most Stars owe their glowing smiles to luminous, dental veneers. Extreme teeth whitening doesn’t always achieve celebrity looks. Instead, over whitening looks unnatural and distracting. It can even make your teeth translucent, rather than pristinely white. If that’s not the look you want, our Florida dentists can best advise you about what your smile needs to look fresher, without looking glow-in-the-dark bright.

Whitening Can Be Such A Pain

Over-whitening your teeth doesn’t just look bad, it can also hurt! Overuse can make your teeth and gums sensitive. For some people, it’s just a mild ache, but for others it can be quite painful. Excessive whitening can also negatively affect the enamel on your teeth. Rather than increase your risk of tooth decay, follow your dentist’s expert recommendations. Professionals have options available for teeth whitening, without making them sensitive – and that’s something you won’t get out of a DIY whitening kit bought at the store.
