Statistics show that most people believe a beautiful bright smile leads to a happier more successful life and studies show we're willing to pay a lot for that smile. The tooth whitening industry rakes in over $11 billion annually, 1$ billion of that deriving from home products like tooth whitening strips and paint on whiteners. Furthermore, studies show that nearly 90% of all orthodontists have been asked by their patients for some kind of teeth whitening recommendation. Most importantly, this shows what percent of people actually saw a noticeable difference from their teeth whitening procedure.
