One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures available today, teeth whitening has been seen as a growing ver the last few years. Many people use teeth whitening to achieve a whiter smile or a younger looking smile as white teeth are often associated with youth. An added factor to whiter teeth is also the confidence boost it can bring.

Smiling is also infectious and a really good way of making a great and lasting first impression on someone you meet. A smile could go a long way in ensuring that you make a positive and memorable impression on that cute someone you just stumbled into, either on your way to work or at the weekend party!

Teeth whitening is usually performed by using a mild solution of carbamide or hydrogen peroxide on your teeth. Laser teeth whitening is a more sophisticated approach, whereby a gel is applied to the teeth and then activated through the use of a light and heat generating laser. It is important to have healthy teeth and gums before you decide to undertake tooth whitening on your teeth.

You may spend money on buying clothes and accessories to enhance your style and image but the impression you create can be ruined if your overall image isn’t considered. And if your teeth are discoloured, ugly or unhealthy that may be the first and last impression you leave behind!

Whiter and healthier teeth can lead to a more confident smile and this could truly help leave a memorable and positive lasting impression on the people you meet.
