White, beautiful smiles are desirable to most people. Who wouldn’t want a nice smile? A discolored smile comes with age, and if your teeth are looking dingy, you can look older than you are. White teeth are a sign of overall health, and a white smile shows your health to everyone you encounter.
Drinking dark liquids such as tea, red wine, dark sodas or coffee can leave your teeth stained. Eating foods like dark berries, beets or balsamic vinegar or soy sauce can also be detrimental to your smile’s brightness. Smoking is one of the worst things you can do to your teeth and to your mouth and body. Ask your dentist or doctor for help stopping smoking.
If you feel good about your smile, you are more relaxed around others. You aren’t afraid to speak in public or to eat and laugh. Your smile projects to everyone that you are healthy and attractive and confident in your person. Whether you’re looking for personal or professional enhancement, you can get closer to your goals with an appealing smile.
Look ahead a month or more. What’s on your schedule? A family reunion? Holidays? Class pictures? A wedding? These events, as well as job interviews or first dates, are all reasons to get your teeth whitened.
Many times, your family, friends and coworkers won’t be able to tell what you’ve had done. They’ll simply think you look like yourself, only better somehow. Maybe they’ll ask if you lost weight or had a cosmetic treatment, when the only change is just how you’re reacting to possessing a brighter, whiter smile.
