Dreaming of a whiter smile? You’re not alone. In fact, when the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry asked people what they wanted to improve about their grin, the most popular answer was “whiter teeth.” Furthermore, a recent survey found that a whopping 80% of Americans between the ages of 18 and 49 want a brighter smile. There is some good news: summer is the perfect time to schedule your teeth whitening treatment. Here’s why!

#1. You Need a Camera-Ready Smile

Summer is a season filled with special occasions, from milestone graduations and relaxing vacations to beautiful weddings. So, you want to make sure your smile is camera-ready! Whether you are taking a selfie with your family or are having your picture taken with the happy couple, the last thing you want is to be worrying about stained or discolored teeth.

#2. You Can Capitalize on a More Flexible Schedule

Due to three-day weekends, PTO, and no school, summertime often comes with a more flexible schedule. While this is a perfect time to go on vacation, spend time with loved ones, and catch up on some much-needed R&R, it’s also the perfect time to schedule your teeth whitening treatment(s). Plus, your dentist’s schedule may be a bit more flexible as well, so it’s a win-win all around!

#3. You Can Enhance Your Smile and Relax Simultaneously

Want the reliability of in-office whitening treatments with the convenience of over-the-counter products? Then professional take-home solutions from your dentist may be the solution you’ve been looking for. Not only are they incredibly effective, but they also can be used at your convenience. Whether you want to whiten your teeth by the pool or while binge-watching the latest show on Netflix, you can achieve your dream smile and enjoy your summer simultaneously.

Summer is most known for days by the pool, BBQs with friends, and relaxing vacations, but now you know a few of the many benefits of getting your teeth whitened this season as well!
