Let teeth whitening give you a dazzling smile for summer

Summer holidays are a time to feel your best and for many people this means looking their best too so make sure your smile is fit to dazzle with teeth whitening.

The passage of time, lifestyle choices and the food that we eat can result in discolouration and staining of the teeth making you feel less than 100 per cent about your smile.

With coffee, red wine, tea and chocolate among some of the culprits it is difficult to avoid your teeth becoming stained while still enjoying the food and drinks that you love.

How can I whiten my teeth?

The solution to reinvigorating your smile and restoring the gleam to your smile is teeth whitening.

It is always important to seek the advice of a professional when considering teeth whitening treatment. Only a trained dentist or dental nurse should apply the treatment to your teeth to ensure the health and safety of patients.

If you are concerned about staining or discolouration to your teeth make an appointment to see a dentist who will talk you through the procedure and explain what results you can expect to see before booking you in for a course of treatment.

How does teeth whitening work?

To whiten teeth a solution is applied to the teeth that essentially bleaches the surface to remove staining. This is applied using a mould to hold the solution onto teeth.

It is important that this mould is close fitting, so your dentist will take measurements before getting a mould made specifically for you.

The results of teeth whitening treatment can be seen in just a few days making an almost instant impact to your smile.

Unless you make lifestyle changes your teeth may become discoloured over time once more meaning that you may need to repeat the process of having your teeth whitened.

To reduce staining on your teeth consider the following actions:

  • Stopping smoking
  • Cutting back on tea and coffee
  • Avoiding dark coloured food and drink, such as red wine
  • Maintaining a thorough daily dental hygiene routine

Having confidence in your smile is important to your self-esteem, don’t let concerns about the colour of your teeth be a barrier to feeling good about yourself.
