A healthy-looking smile can go a long way in terms of confidence, self esteem and success. In the image-conscious society we live in, first impressions are more important than ever and a smile can make all the difference, whether it be with family, friends or in the workplace.
How bad teeth have an impact on confidence
In many instances, a person who is unhappy with their teeth will often try to hide their smile from others to prevent their teeth being exposed; ultimately and inevitably this will have an effect on their self esteem. The increase in use of social media has had a profound impact on body confidence, including the aesthetic of a smile and it can be incredibly easy for individuals to compare themselves to those they see when they scroll through Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Here at Cliftonville Dental, we believe that the most prized benefit of having your teeth whitened is the changes you feel on the inside rather than that which are aesthetic – a person’s self esteem is invaluable.
Teeth whitening for a great smile this summer
Do you have a special occasion coming up this summer such as a wedding, anniversary dinner or birthday party? As the effects of teeth whitening are fast-acting, manifesting in a matter of days, you can be sure to look your best around your friends and family and feel great inside. Here at Cliftonville Dental we offer Zoom! Tooth whitening, which yields results that can last between 1-3 years depending on your lifestyle and diet.
Getting your teeth whitened with a medical professional
In December of 2018, the BBC published an article on the dangers of illegal teeth whitening and how it is increasingly being performed all around the UK, though many of the patients do not realise they are putting themselves at risk. Teeth whitening should only ever be performed by a medical professional such as a dentist or doctor – all of our dentists here at Cliftonville Dental have the high level of credentials to carry out this treatment safely and effectively.
