Teeth Whitening – The Perfect Cosmetic Dental Treatment For Autumn
It’s officially winter time and it won’t be long until the home straight to Christmas begins. If you’re keen to look your best for all those parties and events during December time, planning your teeth whitening treatment in advance is key.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments out there. If you wish to look your best for all those Christmas party pics that will undoubtedly be taken at your work do, family get togethers and dinners out with friends, it’s a sure-fire way of making sure your smile looks great.
A little bit about teeth whitening and its history….
Teeth whitening treatment began during the time of the ancient Egyptians 4000 years ago. They used a whitening paste consisting of wine vinegar and ground pumice stone, whilst the ancient Romans used urine – yes, you did read that right…!
Today (thank goodness), today’s treatment methods are A LOT more civilised! Here at Smile Up Dental, your dentist will create custom whitening trays from moulds of your teeth and a whitening agent will be applied to your teeth using these trays. Here at Smile Up we use the Philips Zoom! System, a market leader in teeth whitening treatment and capable of rendering your teeth 6 shades lighter in as little as 60 minutes. Alternatively, we can also offer an at home system that takes up to 2 weeks for results to fully yield. So if you want to look your best for all those pre-Christmas events, you might want to think about starting mid-November.
Feel great about your smile
One of the important pieces of feedback we get from so many patients is the change to their confidence – after all, happiness and wellbeing starts from the inside. Unsurprisingly, so many people become reluctant to smile when their teeth become unsightly. A survey by Bupa found that of the 33% people who admitted they weren’t happy with their smile, 27% said they covered their mouths for photographs because of low confidence. With this in mind, you might find that the biggest change post-treatment is the difference in your day-to-day confidence.
