A Brighter Smile for the New Year

What are your goals for 2020? A new job? New car? New friends? Life entails all sorts of changes, but no matter what milestones you’re attempting to conquer in the new year, a bright and confident smile can help! In this blog, we’ll discuss the benefits of a confident smile along with how Arnold Dentistry will guide you through the teeth whitening process.

First Impression

When you interact with someone, how long does it take you to form an opinion about their appearance? As it turns out, 96% of people believe a person’s smile is critical for overall appearance and 40% of people will notice an individual’s smile before anything else. This means when you’re interviewing for that dream job, statistics say two out of five interviewers will observe your smile before what you wear, what you say or what hair style you have.

As unfair as this may seem, studies have shown people are more receptive to other individuals when they have a bright and confident smile. Confidence is critical when meeting someone for the first time… and white, bright and beautiful teeth can help instill that inside of you!

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a routine, non-invasive dental treatment that restores the natural white color of your tooth enamel and complements the overall beauty of your smile immensely, often in just two appointments.

During the initial visit, Dr. Arnold and his team will evaluate any old restorations that are showing signs of wear and tear. Following any necessary dental work, precise impressions of your teeth will be taken and sent to a dental lab to aid in the production of a set of custom, clear plastic whitening trays. Once your trays are back from the lab, the second appointment can be scheduled.

The second visit will primarily entail making sure the teeth whitening tray fits properly and how to take care of it, ensuring it whitens your teeth to your liking.

A touch-up might be necessary every couple of years, so it’s very important that you schedule dental cleanings every six months to maintain a healthy mouth and to check the whitening process.
