A bright, white smile is a sure sign of confidence in a person. If your teeth are not at their whitest it could be that you have experienced some staining or yellowing due to overindulging in coffees, teas or colas.
Sometimes, age or medications can also discolor a healthy white smile. If you have been living with a less-than-sparkling white smile, it might have already made you feel somewhat uncomfortable.
The good news is that you can do something about it. Visit your dentist (or check out Mission Viejo dentist Edward Moon, DDS) for a complete checkup and ask about the affordable whitening options that are available to you.
You can get some treatments done in under one hour. There is no pain or discomfort and you will be pleased with the results which last for months. You can get in-chair zoom or gel whitening treatments or you can opt for a specialty tray whitening option from your dentist.
When your teeth are brighter you improve your smile. You also improve your confidence. You can get out in the world and get that job or relationship you have been after with a lot more success with your new beautiful white smile.
