My mind is still waaaaaay over on xmas yet already easter eggs are in the shops and everywhere we are being bombarded with the commandment to love…has to involve buying presents or cards of course!
So in the same spirit I turn my attention to Valentine’s Day and our most popular treatment during this time? Teeth Whitening
You have dark-stained teeth, you avoid looking directly in the mirror as you can’t face seeing your teeth
Their colour reminds you more of daffodils than lilies and you finally decide it’s time to whiten them…good idea? Definitely! This is actually one of my favourite treatments, noone minds coming to see me for treatment that day.
Whiter teeth have been shown to make you look younger, more attractive, more intelligent and above all boost confidence; what’s not to like!
However, before you get it done, make sure the right person is doing it for you. It is a totally safe procedure, as long as it is carried out by dental professionals; in fact it is illegal if anyone else does it for you!
So stay safe and make sure you ask the following questions before handing over your money:
My Top Questions To Ask
Are you registered with the GDC (General Dental Council)? – If the answer is no, then bolt! Only registered professionals are allowed to do teeth whitening
Which dental school did you train in? – Another subtle way to check they are fully qualified
Will you carry out a comprehensive exam before we go ahead with treatment? – You want to be sure any problems are dealt with first, can include anything from cavities to gum disease
What if I have problems during the treatment? – Check that there is a contingency plan, as it’s when problems occur that experience matters
How much experience have you had doing this treatment?
There is no problem in asking questions, any good dentist will welcome them, at Londonsmiling we truly love talking teeth!
So please send me any questions you might have!
