How many of us would like to get that perfect sheen back to our teeth that we had when we were younger? There’s something so special about the sparkle of a child’s teeth and yet as we grow older many of lose it. It doesn’t matter how well you take care of your teeth and even if you avoid things like smoking, red wine and coffee which stain teeth, it is highly likely that your teeth will become more dull in colour with the passing years.
What can you do about it? There are a number of options which your Swindon dentist will be able to advise you about. Any trip to a super market or pharmacy, let alone a quick search on the internet, will reveal how prevalent home teeth whitening kits are. They are often affordable and convenient too, with some startling results available. They usually comprise a set of trays which are to be filled with whitening gel and then worn on your teeth at night for a set period of time.
Some people prefer to have their teeth whitening overseen by the dentist in the surgery. Often this is a more expensive option and perhaps not as convenient if you have a very busy schedule, but the peace of mind offered makes it worth it for some. The concept is similar to that of the home whitening kits as it usually involves some sort of formulated gel which is applied to the teeth. The advantage that in-surgery teeth whitening has is that dentists can also utilise special curing lights. By shining these onto the teeth it can give them a truly exceptional finish.
