Do you feel that the benefits of teeth whitening go beyond the cosmetic? We do, and at Atrium Family Dental in New Lenox, IL we are more than happy to go over the many benefits of teeth whitening with patients eager to have the most appealing smiles possible.

Let’s consider the key benefits of teeth whitening to demonstrate just why anyone will want to consider some tooth whitening today:

It forces you to get your teeth and gums into their best health – Though we are dedicated to cosmetic dentistry for our patients’ needs, we don’t do any cosmetic work unless all of their dental issues have been addressed. If you have decay or damage, we want to ensure it goes no farther before we whiten the teeth. So, one of the most immediate benefits of teeth whitening is that you will have it done only when your mouth is optimally healthy!

We understand that red wine can be excellent for your overall wellness– we’ve all heard it before. The thing is, it can be bad for your oral wellness.

Research launched by Dentistry Today mentions that the level of acidity in red wine discolors your teeth, which can escalate into major oral health issues. We understand liquor has a lot of sugars in it, but because of the high acidity in red wine, it can be even worse than other liquors, eating away at your tooth enamel.

Take a look at the complete post right here and keep in mind to brush well after drinking red wine!

The Truth About Tooth Whitening Methods

May 30, 2013

What is the color of your teeth? Natural teeth are rarely bright white in color. In fact, your teeth are more often than not light gray or light yellow in shade, and over the years, you can expect your teeth to change in color due to the food, beverages and even bad habits you might have such as smoking and drinking. You could also expect a build-up of surface stains which will only hinder you from really smiling.

The perception of others whenever they look at your teeth matters but you yourself should be aware of the changing color of your teeth, especially because it is an indication of a growing tooth problem. While you can claim that you can never have bright white teeth or really want to use tooth whitening, the truth is that first impressions matter, and a white smile can make you look more approachable, employable and successful.
