The first thing that someone notices about you every time you meet (unless you’re in a particularly foul mood!) is your smile! Having nice shiny white teeth is a sign of a healthy, happy face and will always be noticed. As a dental nurse I have always whitened my teeth with bleaching trays and I am often complimented on my smile. What always surprises me is that although most of my friends would love their own teeth whiter not everyone knows how to go about it. The most important thing about whitening your teeth is that you visit your dentist first. They will give you a check-up and clean as there is no point whitening if you have plaque or cavities. They will also be doing a very important oral heath check on your soft tissues and gum health and a mouth cancer screen.
The next step is to have a shade taken and discuss the kind of results possible. Teeth that are yellow have the best results with whitening. If you want a white smile fast then in chair zoom hitening is the best option, we book a 2 hour appointment and you follow up at home with whitening trays and gels. This is really popular with brides and celebs. For a more affordable option at home whitening trays and gels take around 2 weeks for a great result. We make the trays in the surgery so only one visit is needed to set you up, and you can keep the trays and top up with new gel when you want to freshen up your smile. Once your teeth are pearly white you are bound to have a more confident smile and you can show them off even more with a bright lipstick.
