Feeling comfortable in our bodies is the first step toward looking good. No matter how we drape ourselves in fashion, hairstyles and makeup, we won’t look our best if we don’t genuinely feel good about ourselves. And that self-confidence is important for more than just our good looks – it contributes to our successes with work, relationships, and our sense of self-worth on a daily basis.

A simple way to feel better is to smile more. It’s like a perpetual motion machine for our mood. The more we smile, the better we feel; the better we feel, the more likely we are to smile. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry published the results of their survey on smiling. Nearly all of us believe that a smile is an important social asset, and almost three-quarters of us feel that an unattractive smile can actually hurt our chances for success. . When asked what single fix respondents would like to make to their smiles, the most common response was to make it whiter and brighter.

Tooth discoloration to some extent is very nearly a fact of life for all of us. As we age, our teeth are more and more likely to stain, and for some of us, genetics and medications will also play a role. Smoking is a big contributor, but so are the tannins found in coffee, tea, and red wine. Fortunately, getting a whiter, brighter smile can be a simple procedure, and we’re happy to offer this new service here at the Golla Center for Plastic Surgery & Spa. In just about an hour, your teeth can become up to ten shades brighter, and with proper follow up care, they can remain that way for a year or more.
