Smile like a winner this summer

21-Jul-2018

There’s a lot to smile about this summer, not least the incredible heatwave we have been lucky enough to enjoy. Fingers crossed the warm, sunny weather will continue once school’s out. But for many people, it is the sport that is truly putting smiles on faces. Of course, Wimbledon and the Tour de France are proving hugely enjoyable as always. But the highlight this summer has to be the Football World Cup, with England through to their first semi final since 1990.

Whatever the final outcome, the new look England team and their performance so far in this tournament of tournaments will leave many fans smiling for months and even years to come. Unless of course you are unhappy with the colour of your teeth and find yourself avoiding selfies and smile at all costs. But did you know that it is easy to get a perfect, winning smile this summer – and it won’t even cost you the earth! Read on to learn more.

Why do I need to whiten my teeth?

When you think about it, our teeth take on a huge challenge every day. They are essential to eating and speaking and are exposed to every item of food and drink that we consume. Day in, day out, they are putting in as much effort as a world class footballer on the pitch. With this constant exposure to different substances, it is natural that they will fade over time. The problem can be worse depending on your habits, especially if you smoke or consume coffee or red wine frequently. Even brushing carefully every day cannot completely prevent staining from occurring. Because some stains develop beneath the surface, they can’t be tackled with a toothbrush and whitening toothpaste alone.

Whilst some people may be content to leave their teeth alone, many people find themselves increasingly self-confident about the colour of their teeth and this can have an impact on confidence which may affect both your personal and professional life. If you don’t like the appearance of your teeth, giving a presentation or posing for a family photo can quickly turn into torture. You may even find yourself vanishing completely from your social media profiles. If this sounds like you, then it is definitely worth investing in having your teeth whitened.

Can I whiten my teeth myself?

There are many low cost teeth whitening toothpastes and DIY kits available, both from reputable supermarkets and pharmacies as well as much less trustworthy online outlets and auction listings. In the first case, while the products are likely to be completely safe as far as your health is concerned, they will only have a very limited level of effectiveness. This is for two main reasons.

Firstly, for the safety of consumers the law only allows them to contain the active ingredients at a fraction of the strength that a dentist is able to offer. This means that their ability to remove stains is very limited. Secondly, a whitening toothpaste will only address superficial staining and not address the deeper staining in and beneath the enamel, which is the bigger cause of visible problems. As a result, you may well find that you are spending significant amounts of money without ever seeing the effects you desire, leaving you frustrated and out of pocket.

Teeth whitening preparations and kits ordered online offer little or no guarantee that the ingredients meet basic standards of safety and may be unfit for use. There is a high risk when using such products – it is far safer to invest in having a dentist perform your teeth whitening.

What are the advantages of professional teeth whitening?

It’s safe

Most importantly, professional teeth whitening carried out by or under the supervision of a qualified and registered dentist offers a guarantee of safety. You can be sure that the process, equipment and any chemicals all meet strict healthcare criteria. Your dentist will always conduct a thorough examination beforehand to make sure that you are suitable for the treatment, and will take measures to avoid unnecessary exposure to sensitive areas such as your gums.

It’s effective

Because dentists have access to chemicals in much stronger concentrations, you can be sure that your teeth whitening treatment will be effective. Your dentist will discuss your desired outcome prior to the treatment so that you know what you can expect and the process will be personalised to get the best possible results.

It’s inexpensive

Whilst it may seem that paying for your dentist to whiten your teeth is an expensive option, when you consider the fact that it is extremely safe and highly effective, the price is worth paying. You won’t be putting your health at risk and will get guaranteed, lasting results that leave you with a confident smile you want to share everyday.
