Your teeth don’t change from white to brown overnight. It’s such a gradual process that you might not even realize it has happened at all until the damage becomes embarrassing.
If you can relate to the following habits and behaviors, you’re sending clear signals that your confidence isn’t ruined – it just needs to be be restored through a simple teeth whitening procedure.
You Avoid Face-to-Face Conversations
It’s quite a difficult task to talk and laugh with others without showing your teeth. If you are embarrassed by your teeth because they are dark and stained, you may find yourself avoiding conversations in close quarters or making the conscious decision to smile with closed lips.
This self-conscious behavior has a major impact on your quality of life and prevents you from making connections that enrich your wellbeing. Fortunately, all you need to do is receive professional teeth whitening to once again join in on every laugh, smile, and conversation you can.
You Drink Coffee, Wine, or Soda Every Day
There are certain food and drink items that stain your teeth quicker than others, and coffee, tea, wine, and soda are infamous for their staining abilities. If you can’t start your day without a cup of coffee, or if you enjoy a glass of red white every night with dinner, your teeth are most likely undergoing a gradual staining process whether you can see it or not. You can preempt dealing with unattractive teeth by receiving a professional teeth whitening treatment now.
You Don’t Always Care For Your Teeth
If flossing is only something you think about at your six-month dentist appointment when you have to awkwardly explain your lack of dental hygiene to your dentist, or if brushing twice a day has never been your favorite activity, then whitening your teeth could give you the boost you need to take better care of your teeth. While whitening won’t provide any health benefits itself, it might give you a better appreciation of your teeth so you’re more willing to brush and floss every day.
