How to be a bobby dental dazzler!
Whether you want to have a glamorous A-lister smile or you just want to have lighter, brighter teeth, your dental practitioner will be able to give you advice. Many clinics offer two kinds of whitening treatments, the first is to have your teeth made lighter at your dental practice. The whole process takes around 60 minutes and involves a lamp being placed over your teeth to activate the bleach. The alternative way is home whitening, where a plastic mould is made specifically to fit the shape of your mouth and teeth, then the whitening gel is used in this overnight at your home. You will start to see the whitening process work gradually after around two weeks, but many patients start to see a difference in a few days.
What if you have crooked and yellowing teeth?
Treatments such as veneers offer a super solution for those who have the double problem of discoloured, plus crooked teeth. Veneers can be made of either porcelain or the same composite materials used for white fillings. Porcelain veneers are more natural to look at and longer lasting. With this treatment, teeth can be made to look whiter and at the same time, straighter, as a new replacement tooth surface is fitted over the old tooth.
