Is It Time for Some Anti-Aging? Here’s How your Dentist Can Help!
- Posted on: Jan 15 2018
Aging is not necessarily a problem, but it is a process that can create more than a few concerns. The development of lines and wrinkles is one. For ages, men and women have sought ways to ease the transition into older age. We have several ways to do this now, from cosmetic surgeries to injectable wrinkle reducers. One area that shouldn’t be overlooked if you want to maintain a more youthful and lively image is your mouth.
Your Smile is Talking
A smile says a lot. It demonstrates happiness and humor and love. These are surface level messages of a smile. Just beneath that, though, the human brain observes the characteristics of a smile and forms an impression. It’s fascinating how this works so subconsciously. As an example of what we’re talking about, let’s look at dull, discolored teeth. It is not uncommon for the brain to observe this characteristic of color and form the perception that the person with those dull teeth is older.
Conversely, to the perception of older age that stems from observing discolored teeth, the human brain also analyzes the opposite. People with more radiance in their smile, less yellowing, are assumed to be younger and more energetic. In fact, in one study, participants observed before and after photos of a group of people; before and after teeth whitening. In the after photos, age was perceived to be 10 years younger on average than in before photos. That is pretty impressive data, and it’s data that we can use to our advantage.
Your Glen Dale Dentist has Your Smile Covered
Teeth whitening is a process that has been refined over hundreds of years. In our Glen Dale office, we use the latest technique so our patients can obtain the degree of whitening they want as quickly and safely as possible. The K6R whitening K6R-Seal™ trays that we use fit perfectly around teeth so no external debris, including saliva, can seep in during whitening treatment. That means the only peroxide will touch tooth surfaces. Furthermore, this system utilizes specifically formulated, refrigerated whitening gel that maximizes power while minimizing the amount of time that trays must be worn. In about 30 minutes, hours of the whitening action occurs.
