Why Do We Care About White Teeth?
Lately, I have been wondering why people care about having white teeth. Once I did a little research, I discovered much of what we find attractive in others has to do with biology (creating a better species) and cultural norms and trends.
Biologically speaking, whiter teeth appear to be much stronger and healthier to others, acting as a sign of youth an vitality. Today, especially in the United States, we are very appearance centered and youth/beauty rule over all. If you do decide to whiten you teeth, please remember to stay away from peroxide based products; It isn't worth the risk just to have whiter teeth.
