Can smiling more really be good for your health and lead to you looking younger as a consequence? It has long been known that the act of smiling boosts the immune system, but a study at Ohio State University recently discovered if you’re not smiling at people, because you’re not socially connected enough, you’re more likely to suffer from inflammation. Inflammation has been linked to a number of health problems including arthritis, diabetes and even cancer. If the whiteness of your teeth is troubling you, you may want to consider teeth whitening…
The healthier you are, the younger you’ll naturally look, but what if there’s something preventing you from smiling as freely as you’d like? If you’re conscious of the fact you suppress your smile, because you feel embarrassed about how your teeth look, we can offer a relatively cheap and efficient way to greatly improve the appearance of your smile, giving you more confidence.
Our teeth whitening treatment will make your teeth several shades brighter, remove the discolouration that naturally occurs as you age, as well as any stubborn stains, leaving you looking younger, more glamorous, not to mention healthier!
Our teeth whitening system will benefit your smile
Teeth whitening treatment prescribed by your dentist is a reliable way to achieve a predictable and natural-looking brightening of the teeth. Here at Arnold Dental, we use the Opalescence system which puts you in control of when you apply it. It also allows you to do it in the comfort of your own home.
In the first instance you’ll visit us to have impressions of your teeth taken. This process allows us to create ultra thin, custom-made trays into which the whitening gel will be placed. The gel, which is made from potassium nitrate and fluoride, is safe to apply yourself, once you’ve had guidance from us. As we make the trays to fit your mouths exactly, they’ll be comfortable to wear.
You’ll then be given instructions on how to use them. You’ll wear them overnight for 2 to 4 weeks, gaining a brighter shade each week. The hygiene polish that we’ll provide beforehand will ensure that stubborn stains are tackled and that your teeth are in the best condition to receive the treatment.
You’ll visit us for a review once your treatment is complete and you’ll have significantly whiter teeth, with both surface and beneath-the-enamel stains having been tackled. You can expect to look younger and have more confidence in your smile.
Prolonging the effects of your teeth whitening treatment
Your teeth should sustain their new brighter shade for up to 2 years, but this period of time can be extended with a top up treatment. You can also help prevent your teeth from discolouring again quickly by avoiding foods and drinks that are known to cause staining when consumed excessively, such as curries, tea and coffee.
