Discreet And Convenient Orthodontic Treatment For A Happier & Healthier Smile

In this digital age it’s hard not to be aware of the constant click of smartphones and streams of feeds with smiling loved ones, flashing their beautiful perfect sets of pearly whites. Photos are as common to our lives as cooking our dinner now and brushing our teeth. When there is always an amateur photographer present, it’s no wonder more and more of us are becoming more conscious of our smiles. Luckily thanks to new technologies and better finance options cosmetic dentistry in Bromley is becoming more and more accessible for all and what’s top of the pile is teeth whitening.

What is teeth whitening?

I’m sure you’ve either known of friends or family or maybe seen a favourite influencer flash their newly whitened smile and wondered – how? Teeth whitening used to get a hard time for being damaging and causing sensitivity, but the methods have come a long way and are now really common. The products used are safe, when used in conjunction with a dental practice. There are for the most part two types of whitening on the market.

In-house whitening

These tooth whitening methods use, for the most part, laser bleaching methods. The dentist will remove any plaque from the teeth and then place a shield on your gums and lips. They apply a whitening solution then the laser working in conjunction with the product can whiten your teeth in just one treatment at the practice.

At-home whitening

At-home whitening has quickly become the most popular form of whitening, not only because it delivers fantastic long-term results, but also because it’s very affordable. With at-home whitening, trays are designed specially for the patients at the dentist and then once they have been made will be given to the patients to take home and use with a whitening solution over the course of a two-week period. What’s amazing about this is you are able to buy top-up bleach to apply once a month or so, to keep them white and bright.

Keeping teeth white

After you’ve opted for teeth whitening, in order to keep them unblemished, over the long term the ball is very much in your court. Patients need to look at where they can adapt their diets to keep staining foods and drinks such as red wine, tea, coffee and fruit to a minimum, as this avoidance will maintain the whiter colour desired.

Other cosmetic dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is there to help people feel more confident about their smiles and it’s been shown by multiple reports that feeling unhappy with the colour or shape of your teeth can lead to other medical issues including anxiety, depression and poor body image. Everyone has the right to feel happy in their skin and opting for cosmetic dentistry could really help improve how you feel about your smile. There are cosmetic procedures for a whole host of problems, including porcelain veneers to fix stained, chipped or uneven teeth, invisible braces as a long-term solution to a multitude of dental alignment issues and white fillings to avoid the more noticeable metal options.
