First impressions count and if we’re at the top of our game, it’s more important than ever to look our best when we are smiling or speaking. Especially for those women entrepreneurs who are dealing directly with their clients or customers, leading a team and those who are in the limelight, doing public speaking, training, motivational speaking and the like.
Why do some people look to brighten their smile?
On a day-to-day basis the teeth, mouth and gums go through rigorous processes. Whether it be from the daily consumption of foods or regular teeth-staining beverages such as red wine or from social habits such as smoking, the teeth can become heavily stained which may dim your smile.
With normal life impacting the teeth so heavily it is comforting to know that there are solutions to brighten up the smile again.
How to Brighten a Smile?
To replenish the colour of the teeth there are a variety of options including the home kits which can be bought online or over the counter, to the treatments or procedures carried out within the dental practice.
Either way, the reasoning behind wanting the treatment barely differs and this is why seeking advice from a qualified health practitioner on teeth whitening Macleod is highly recommended.
How Good are the Results?
When working with a professional dental team to whiten the teeth, the treatment or procedure can be great. It may be that you choose to follow the at-home whitening treatment which requires you to wear a specific gel and retainer overnight, or it may be that you choose to take the more intensive approach of having a specialised light shone onto the teeth during a 2-hour appointment. At no point is the aim of the treatment to create an artificial white appearance, but it focuses on lightening the natural tooth colour to the original shade which was previously there.
This in turn helps to restore a healthy and natural-looking smile.
Which Process is Best?
We do not recommend the do-it-yourself kits acquired over the internet due to the uncertain nature of what colouration you are after and what they might contain. When it comes to choosing which tooth whitening option to undergo at the dental practice, it depends entirely on how quickly you want results and whether or not you are confident carrying out the treatment at home.
For some patients, it may be that they combine the treatments and procedures to gain the best results for their individual case. Therefore it is less about which whitening process is the best and more about which process suits your needs best.
Discussing Your Options
As soon as you begin to think about brightening up your smile it is important to ensure that you seek out information on the subject. Whilst the internet provides us with answers in an instant, to gain a more personalised and effective idea on what might suit your own teeth it is important to contact your dental team and arrange an appointment.
During this time, not only can your dentist provide you with the benefits and possible downfalls to the process, but they can also create a specific treatment plan to suit your own personal case.
Learning about and understanding all the possible outcomes to the process and what is required by you, the patient can make all the difference to your smile. So it is important to get advice from a professional and take the time to consider which options work for you.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
