Dental Procedures: From Teeth Whitening to Root Canal Surgery

June 29th, 2010

The NHS does not provide cosmetic surgery, such as teeth whitening. This can mean that the cost of having a teeth whitening procedure performed by a private dentist is just too expensive for a lot of people. There is also no fixed cost and the price of teeth whitening can vary significantly from surgery to surgery. It is advisable to always carry out extensive research if you are thinking of having teeth whitening treatment by a private dentist.

Alternatively, teeth whitening kits are a simple and safe option that you can use yourself, in the comfort of your own home.

Not only does the NHS not offer teeth whitening and most other cosmetic dentistry, but in some areas it is nearly impossible to find an available NHS dentist to register with. Instead, you will be placed on a waiting list which you could be on for years. Patients should also be aware that if you do not have an appointment for a year or so then you could be in danger of being struck off the register at your NHS dental surgery.

As a patient on the NHS, you still have to pay towards treatment. Many patients have found that when comparing prices for treatments with different practices, such as root canal surgery, there can be large discrepancies. One dentist may charge £100 for a procedure whereas another could quote £1000. Dentists are allocated £2 billion of the NHS budget but this does not guarantee a decent service. It is not uncommon for people to be misdiagnosed and be charged for more expensive, yet unnecessary surgery.

Taking Care of Teeth

June 7th, 2010

Teeth whitening is a quick and easy way to have great looking teeth. However, you need to take steps to keep your teeth healthy as well. Brushing is the most obvious way to take care of your teeth. This should be done at least twice a day to remove the build up of plaque.

There are awkward places in your mouth that a toothbrush cannot reach; this is where dental floss comes in. Dental floss removes food and plaque from all those hard to reach areas to give your teeth a more thorough clean. The best way to do this is by flossing between each tooth and then behind your back teeth.

Finally, mouth wash gives your teeth an overall clean, getting rid of any any bacteria that can cause plaque  and also helping to prevent gum disease.

You can help avoid your teeth becoming discoloured by avoiding foods and drinks that stain teeth, such as coffee and fruit juices. Smoking is another common cause of yellow teeth.

Teeth will inevitably become stained over the years so  teeth whitening kits are a simple way of hiding discolouration. Along with taking care of your teeth, teeth whitening can enhance the healthy condition of your teeth.

American Vs British Teeth Whitening

May 11th, 2010

Americans are renowned for being obsessed with their teeth. You just have to take a look at a red carpet event in Hollywood to see sets of dazzling white teeth. The British appear to prefer the more natural look although teeth whitening does seem to have been establishing itself here over the past few years. Non-NHS cosmetic dentistry now amounts to a third of a dentist?s income, on average.

It has been documented that an American interviewer asked Ricky Gervais about his use of ugly fake teeth for comedic purposes, before being told that they were, in fact, his real teeth. Teeth can be a distinguishing feature of a person and therefore change may not be a good thing. Kate Moss has been quoted as saying that she loves her crooked teeth. However, if someone?s teeth are making their life miserable surely it can only be beneficial for them to have their teeth whitened and escape a life of avoiding opening their mouth or covering it with their hand whenever they laugh.

There needs to be a definitive line between restoring stained teeth to their former glory and creating unnaturally white teeth that can be quite grotesque. It is like anything, as long as it is done in moderation, teeth whitening can really make a positive difference to a person?s appearance.

A Brief History of the Quest for Whiter Teeth

May 7th, 2010

The wish to have whiter teeth is not a fad that has developed overnight; it has been around for centuries. According to research, hydrogen peroxide was used as early as 1884 to attain whiter teeth. Carbamide peroxide is now a much more popular choice as there is no risk of the gums and soft tissue being burned.

Cosmetic tooth whitening is the only way to ensure that you continue to have whiter teeth. Dentin, which is the material under enamel on teeth, is actually yellow and because enamel is transparent, the dentin can give teeth a yellow tone. Brushing teeth with whitening toothpaste is therefore not wholly effective. Teeth are also made darker by perished materials in the root canal then discolouring the dentin. In addition to this, age and daily stains from food and drink affect the colour.  

In the past, a cotton pellet was soaked in bleach and then placed inside the tooth with a root canal. This would be removed after a few days and a filling would be introduced. The result? Whiter teeth!

The technique that we use is somewhat less severe than this. Our teeth whitening kits work by having the whitening gel in contact with the teeth for as long as is needed, without causing any damage. Having whiter teeth has been proven to lead to health and happiness through inner confidence. So if you want whiter teeth with minimum effort try our simple to use teeth whitening kits.

Want Confidence? Get Your Teeth Whitened

So, you?ve done it, you?ve got yourself a hot date. You?ve had your hair done, bought that new dress you have been eyeing up for weeks with no expense spared. You look stunning? until you open your mouth. 

People spend so much money on clothes, shoes, make-up etc and yet seem to neglect their teeth which are on display for such a large amount of time during daily life. Some people try to combat this by avoiding laughing or smiling as much as possible, but their teeth can still be seen when they are talking. Try and imagine how it must be for the other person, on a date with someone who does not laugh or smile. You could be giving the wrong impression just because you lack confidence.

Confidence is drawn from your own impression of yourself; it is not from how other people view you, so if you feel confident you?ll be confident. You could change your opinion of yourself by having your teeth whitened.
