Did you know that between 6 and 8% of US adults 18 and over are diagnosed with major depressive disorder annually? That’s more than 14 million people each year, but recent research indicates that smiling more often may actually be enough to rewire brains to see the world more positively. A 2005 study at Penn State University revealed that smiling not only reduced stress and improved outlook, but that it also improved the perception of others who viewed smiling people as friendly, competent, and likeable. What’s more, the ability to re-wire our brains to think positive isn’t reliant on the authenticity of smiles. That means, when it comes to smiling your way to a happier life, you really can fake it ‘til you make it. Many people who smile less frequently, report their reason for the lack of smiles is that they dislike something about their teeth, and don’t want to draw attention to them. For many, discolored, stained, or yellowed teeth keep them from smiling, and thus, hold them back from improving their outlook, mood, and the way others perceive them. At Tyngtown Dental, our Wilton dentist and team offers patients both in-office and at-home teeth whitening that gives patients more reasons to smile every day.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening at our Wilton dental practice takes about an hour, and can brighten patients’ smiles up to ten shades. We offer patients professional-grade deep bleaching gel, experienced application and treatment, and predictable results every time. For those who want dramatic results quickly, in-office teeth whitening is a great option. For those with sensitive teeth, in-office whitening allows dentists to adjust dosage, and treatment time immediately.
Professional At-Home Whitening
Unlike over the counter teeth whitening strips, trays, and rinses, the professional at-home whitening kits available from your Wilton dentist are proven much more effective. Patients receive custom-made application trays that seal gel onto the enamel avoiding damage to soft tissue, and seal saliva out of the gel which allows the formula to work longer. Additionally, professional whitening gels have much higher concentrations of active ingredients compared with whitening treatments available from your local pharmacy.
