This time of year brings patients in by the droves because everyone wants to look their best for season.

Dentists agree that teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment that simply enhances the appearance of patient’s smile. While teeth whitening may not carry its weight in the science of tooth quality, some argue that the treatment can help to improve a patient’s overall well-being.
During the holidays, Dr. Cheung, a Powell, Ohio dentist, sees an influx of patients coming in to his family dental practice in Powell specifically for teeth whitening treatments. While Dr. Cheung’s primary focus is to treat oral health issues and encourage preventative treatments, the dentist recognizes that drawing patients in for the teeth whitening quickly gets them more involved with their dental health for the long term. The dentist sees the holiday season as a prime opportunity to help guide patients into the new year with a brand new resolution to pay close attention to their oral health.
Dr. Cheung comments, “This time of year brings patients in by the droves because everyone wants to look their best for season. We all want a brighter smile because we do so much of it when we’re surrounded by family and friends! If I am able to get them interested in a teeth whitening program, I get work with them to help identify any possible hidden issues in their oral health. At the very least, our teeth whitening program helps patients feel better about themselves and take more vested interest in their dental routine.”
Dr. Cheung offers the following reasons a trip to the dentist for teeth whitening can help set a patient on the right track for better overall health and well-being.
1. If a patient comes in to participate in our teeth whitening treatment program, the individual will receive an examination. This examination can help turn up any problem areas and get the patient on track to an overall healthy, beautiful smile. Maintaining a white smile lays the groundwork for better oral health as well as the rest of the body.
2. Smiling does the body good. Patients find themselves smiling more when their teeth have been whitened. Research shows that smiling relieves stress, stimulates the immune system as a response to stress relief, lowers blood pressure, and releases endorphins and serotonin.
3. A whiter smile can help improve self-esteem. A whiter smile can actually help a patient feel better about himself and invite fanfare. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry reports that virtually all adults (99.7%) believe a smile is an important social asset.
