There are lots of advantages in getting your teeth whitened. When you smile, people take notice, and a brilliant white smile can give you new found confidence that people will instantly notice. It gives your appearance an instantaneous lift. Whiter teeth are associated with a healthier, happier lifestyle. Also a whiter smile tends to minimise the appearance of facial wrinkles, and helps to give way to a more youthful appearance.
There are some short- term side affects which will fade and disappear, or can be avoided all together.
Some people are overly sensitive to the whitening gel used. If you find that you experience tingling or slight pain, then it is recommended that you use less whitening gel in the tray as this will reduce the contact between the gel and the gums. If used properly, there will be little or no pain, and this pain will disappear when the tray and gel is removed.
