Perhaps the most common question we hear at JL dental care is “how can I improve my smile?” and this is often because teeth have taken on a dull or yellow shade.
As your smile is one of the first things people notice, teeth whitening can arguably be the easiest way to improve your appearance. Whiter teeth can boost your confidence and self-esteem.
Drinking coffee, tea, cola or red wine, and smoking eventually takes a toll on teeth. The results, as mentioned above, are dull or discoloured teeth. Antibiotics can also cause darker grey-coloured stains.
Most teeth will benefit from whitening, which is a proven, safe and effective way to brighten stained or discoloured teeth. There are a variety of additional methods for restoring a bright white smile including porcelain veneers, composite bonding and dental implants that may be needed in addition to teeth whitening, or bleaching.
However, of all the advances made in dentistry to enhance the appearance of the teeth, whitening is the easiest and least invasive and is effective in most cases. The procedure is safe, simple, and more affordable than ever. For these reasons and more, whitening has become very popular.
In most instances, people ask about teeth whitening when there is a wedding, holiday or event on the horizon and it really is quite amazing to see the effect on people’s smiles when they are lightened even just a few shades. The entire smile becomes larger and brighter. Jonathan, Leigh-Ann or Farrell can show the methods available and use an accurate shade guide prior to the treatment so you will know exactly how many shades your teeth have been brightened.
