Teeth whitening has MANY benefits and a few will surprise you!
Of course, there are the esthetic benefits. A recent American study revealed that teeth are the number one facial feature that people would change. This study showed that 75% of adults think that a nice smile supports career success and 84% think that an attractive smile aids in meeting Mister or Miss Right. The poll explored the importance of smiles in relation to business and careers, dating and marriage, the social arena and the connection between smiles and self-esteem.
In addition to the esthetic benefits of an attractive appearance and increased self confidence, professional teeth whitening gel has also been proven to kill the bacteria that cause gum disease as well as those that cause tooth decay – so patients who take advantage of Dakota Dental’s professional teeth whitening services also have healthier teeth and are less likely to suffer from gum disease.
Some researchers suggest a link between gum disease and health concerns such as cardiovascular problems, stroke, bacterial pneumonia and increased risk during pregnancy.
And, finally, to answer the question …
“Does Professional Teeth Whitening Make You Mentally Brighter?”
A study performed within the UK could suggest that people with gum disease have decreased mental function versus those whose gums are healthy. The researchers had 6,693 adults in their twenties through seventies take cognitive performance tests. The findings reflected that, regardless of age, those with bleeding gums or tooth problems caused by inflamed gums scored worse. This finding could suggest that system-wide inflammation due to gum disease might possibly cause deficits in mental function.
