Teeth whitening sounds like something only celebrities can get. It sounds like a luxury treatment. However now you can get tooth whitening in Essex so you can enjoy the full benefit of a brighter smile!
The first thing to say is that if your teeth are not perfectly white this does not mean you have unhealthy teeth. The appearance is not necessarily a reflection of oral health. Likewise someone with naturally white teeth should still make sure they are properly looked after.
However if your teeth are discoloured it can have an impact. We associate smiling with being positive and if you are worried about the look of your teeth you may be less inclined too. This can make it harder to talk to people and can have a very real impact on your self confidence.
With whiter teeth people tend to feel more relaxed and more willing to smile. It can make a massive difference!
Choose a professional
It may be tempting to read this and think “but you can get tooth whitening kits on the high street.” While this is true and some are effective you do need to be careful while using them.
You can get more effective results using the services of a professional. Furthermore some whitening kits can only be used by professional cosmetic dentists due to restrictions on the ingredients used in them that need to be handled carefully.
One potential concern people can have is an overly slick looking set of pearly whites, the oral equivalent of a neon orange fake tan! In practise this does not happen because a cosmetic dentist can gradually improve the shades of your teeth to create a brighter but also a more natural and healthy look to your teeth.
The effectiveness of your teeth whitening will depend on your oral health. Therefore before whitening you may want to consider stopping smoking and cutting down on coffee, red wine and other things that can stain teeth (as well as other additional health benefits!)
This can all be discussed during a free consultation with the cosmetic dentist. Everyone is different and a good practitioner will look at your personal situation and decide what treatment is appropriate. It is also a good time to talk to them about the procedure and any questions and concerns you may have.
