2014 is in full swing, but if your year has started with a whimper, rather than a bang, you may be looking for a boost. Tooth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments and it could help you to enjoy a beautiful, bright, white smile: the perfect way to kick-start the New Year.
Over time, the teeth can start to lose their natural whiteness and this can impact on the overall look of the smile; surface stains and discolouration caused by general wear and tear, smoking, neglecting oral hygiene and drinking coffee, tea or red and white wine, can impact on the colour of the teeth and make them appear yellow or brown.
White teeth are synonymous with good health and there is nothing more attractive than a bright white smile.
Whitening treatment is a safe and effective means of brightening the smile and making you look more attractive. Home whitening is very convenient, as it enables you to enjoy an amazing, radiant smile without even having to leave the house. Home whitening involves using a custom-made whitening tray to gradually lighten the shade of the teeth; the tray is similar to a mouth guard worn to protect the teeth when playing sport and it is worn at night. Usually, home treatment takes between 10 and 14 days.
Tooth whitening is not painless and it does not harm the structure of the tooth in any way; it is common to experience mild sensitivity after treatment, but this should subside very quickly.
