“A smile is a facelift that is on everybody’s price range.” – Tom Wilson.
A smile is the best expression that a face can have! Therefore it is important that we make sure our smile is as flashy and bright as possible. The brilliance of our smile depends greatly on the condition of our teeth. Bright, clean and white teeth are capable of beautiful smiles, while discoloured teeth can be pretty unpleasant! Apart from aesthetic appeal, clean and white teeth go a long way in preserving dental hygiene.
Teeth whitening can be attained either with professional help or whitening products that are available over the counter. Usage of whitening products that are readily available may or may not yield the desired results simply because one size may not fit all. Over the counter products contain standard amounts of peroxide or peroxide generating compounds for whitening. The duration for visible effect would hinge on a lot on the dental condition of the person and may require many applications of the product to achieve desired results. Hence, it is always better to seek professional help for cleaning and whitening of teeth at regular intervals.
Natural teeth are a yellowish white colour that discolours further with age and consumption of products like tobacco, caffeine, etc. Plaque, tartar, cavities are some of the reasons that affect the whiteness of it. Apart from regular dental care like brushing and flossing that we do at home, our teeth require professional care periodically. Whitening of teeth involves removal of tartar at places that can be accessed with the help of special equipment and instruments. Dental hygienists recommend professional cleaning of teeth every six months as the effect of a cleaning or whitening session lasts for four to six months.
Whitening of teeth is a cosmetic procedure and is different from cleaning it. Whitening involves application of HP (Hydrogen Peroxide) gel on the surface of the enamel and then focussing of LED light on the teeth to enhance the effect of the gel. Peroxide penetrates the porous enamel, acts upon the deposits and works as a bleaching agent for the teeth making them appear whiter. The colour of teeth transform from two to eight shades lighter with professional dental grade whitening and can go up to twelve shades if topped with costume options that are optional.
Dental cleaning and whitening services are conducted with care and caution by competent professionals in hygienic conditions. You can seek prior appointment with a dental clinic to clear your doubts if any. The first appointment usually includes a free consultation and brief treatment so that the specialists ascertain the level of treatment and can educate you about the same. Detailed history of previous dental treatments and current dental condition are also kept in mind before commencement any treatment. The services are customised depending upon the dental anatomy of every person. Many clinics also have products to maintain the whiteness in the months following a whitening session. Teeth’s whitening is a painless process and leaves you with stronger enamels and great oral hygiene.
Head home with that confident step and winning smile!
