Can you say "cheese” with ease?
Would you like the smile of a movie star?
|A fantastic smile is one of the first things we notice about each other. How you feel about your teeth affects the way you smile! Other people may judge your personality, health and sexuality by your pearly whites and the way you smile.
How comfortable are you to smile and be proud of nice white shiny teeth, or would you rather smile with your lips or even your hand covering your mouth?
Why your pearly whites are not so pearly and white anymore? Lifestyle factors and not so good hygiene: We all are exposed to staining substances on a daily basis, things like red wine, caffeine and tobacco can further increase staining that naturally occurs with living.
Do you sometimes run your tongue over "furry” feeling teeth – this is plaque build up on your teeth, full of bacteria, toxins and food particles.Regular visits to your dentist and a good hygiene regime at home, could certainly help keeps these nasty’s at bay.
Sometimes however the staining can be inside the tooth itself and this becomes more complicated to treat.Even though enamel is the hardest substance in our bodies, it is porous. Certain foods like coke, red wine, curry, wine and smoking could cause discoloration.Other things that cause internal discoloration are certain medications and even genetics.How to reclaim your pearly whites!
Dentists will claim their system lasts for years, but what they fail to mention is that after they make a mould of your teeth you need to maintain the whiteness with a fortnightly to monthly gel applied inside the mould.
More affordable options
Becoming increasingly popular are home treatment kits, toothpastes and mouth rinses. These are only effective to a certain extent as they have lower concentrations of bleaching agents, and take longer to get the desired results. Most people therefore find that the novelty wears off relatively quickly, even before real results are visible. (Prices vary from $50-$500)
The best news is that you can now have the best of both worlds! You can now have white shining teeth, without the pain, sensitivity, hassle, mess, time and save yourself a lot of money. You can now get your teeth professionally whitened for a third of the cost of that of a dentist, but with similar results.
