The Benefits of Post-Orthodontic Treatment Teeth Whitening
June 19, 2019
As you embark on your post-orthodontic journey, whether it was done through traditional braces, lingual braces or clear aligners, one way to best showcase your perfectly-aligned, healthy smile is to have them professionally whitened (bleached).
As you can probably guess, the most straightforward reason to whiten after treatment is so that your teeth look even better! You likely just spent years wearing braces or aligners to correct the misalignment of your teeth or bite. After that investment of both time and money, you don’t want stained teeth to detract from your new appearance.
Confidence and Self-Esteem
A smile is one of the first things people notice. Professional teeth whitening removes persistent stains and brightens your smile, leaving you with more self-confidence. We want our patients to show their smile with confidence and have a smile that they’re proud to show off.
Whiter teeth make you look and feel younger, partly because we associate white teeth with youth and beauty, and partly because we naturally look younger when we smile, and we smile more when we like our smile. A whiter smile tends to minimize the appearance of facial wrinkles, giving way to a more youthful and energetic appearance. Whiter teeth also are associated with a healthier lifestyle.
Teeth-whitening procedures come with minimal risks. The most common side effect is increased sensitivity—either of the teeth, gums or both—which is usually temporary. Overuse of whitening products can erode your teeth, but a professional will tell you exactly how to avoid this.Plus, having your teeth whitening performed by a professional at our smile dental clinic is not only safe, but more effective than using an over-the-counter whitening product.
Inexpensive Appearance Boost
Finally, the benefits of teeth whitening are high, and the cost is relatively low. A professional whitening treatment averages about $500, which is reasonable considering its quality and longevity. At Orthodontic Studio, we charge current patients only $299 ($475 for non-patients).
At Orthodontic Studio, we look forward to providing you with the best-possible experience both during and after your treatment with us.
