With their images adorning the glamour magazines and billboards detailing their upcoming films, the A-Listers of Hollywood always sport a pearly white smile. Their wonderful lives look fantastic and seem like a different world to anyone else who looks at these images. Although many aspects of their lives are ones which we could not lead, there is one way in which this can be done – teeth whitening.
What is teeth whitening?
Just like its title says, having teeth whitening carried out on yourself will better the colour of your teeth substantially. Whether or not the years of drinking cups of coffee or smoking tobacco products is the reason behind the natural colour of your teeth going more yellow than white, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Teeth whitening treatment is carried out via a number of ways. Essentially, teeth whitening involves the teeth to be bleached using oxidizing agents such as hydrogen peroxide and/or carbamide peroxide so that this then lightens the shade of the tooth. Doing this will enable the layers of non-white colouring to be broken down. Once the teeth have been whitened, the effects of this can be seen for several months but the overall impact can be cut if you start to drink caffeine products or smoke tobacco. This teeth whitening treatment can be carried out at the Devonshire Square Dental Studio but there is one other form of teeth whitening procedure which can be done in the comfort of your own home.
Known as “at-home whitening”, this treatment means that custom-made trays are created which holds a low concentration of the oxidizing agent which can then be placed next to the teeth for up to six hours over a number of days. This is ideal for those who do not want instant results but over the course of a longer period of time.
