If you have a wedding coming up or a family holiday, you probably want to look your best in the photographs that will be taken. You can make sure your clothes are immaculate and get your hair done but what if your teeth are dull or stained? Don’t despair, there is no need to feel embarrassed about smiling in the photographs. Instead you should talk to your dentist about the variety of teeth whitening procedures on offer.
Teeth become dull or stained for a number of reasons but the older you get, no matter how well you take care of your teeth, it is more likely that your teeth will lose some of the bright shine that they had when you were younger.
Teeth whitening usually involves the application of special gel to your teeth to remove any stains and restore brightness. Your dentist can administer the gel by placing it in special trays that have been constructed by taking moulds of your teeth. Your teeth might then be buffed and polished by your dentist to give a good finish to the process.
Teeth whitening kits are also available over the counter so you can carry out the treatment at home. They can be purchased from super markets and pharmacies and are often cheaper than having treatment in the surgery. They are convenient too, because you won’t have to take time out of your day to visit the dentist. You will apply the gel yourself to the whitening trays and probably wear them over night for a set period of time.
Don’t be ashamed of your smile anymore, talk to your Molesley dentist about the different options available for teeth whitening procedures and which one is best for you.
