The cosmetic surgery industry is undoubtedly experiencing a boom and yet it is non-surgical procedures, such as teeth whitening, which are beginning to grow in number with reality TV stars such as Louise Thompson showcasing the subtle yet exceptional results.
For readers who have often heard the phrase ‘teeth whitening’ but don’t actually know what the procedure consists of, it’s actually a bleaching process which makes your teeth lighter in their appearance. While the results aren’t often a pure, brilliant white, it does help to remove a considerable amount of staining caused by eating and drinking, smoking, and various other factors.
Each provider of the treatment will normally have a slightly different variation to their procedure; MYA Smile, a bespoke but respected branch of the MYA organisation, offers quick and immediate results by using whitening gel and LED lamps. The service is separated into three ten minute treatments, and is only carried out by a qualified dentist to ensure minimal risk is involved. Once all three sections of the teeth whitening is complete, the gel will be removed, the mouth rinsed, and then all the necessary advice and help is given in regards to the aftercare of your newly white teeth.
Although this is a procedure that many people will want to try for themselves, there are exceptions to who can and can’t undergo the non-surgical whitening: if you’re pregnant, breast feeding, or under 18 years of age you won’t be able to have the treatment. Furthermore, any tooth decay, broken fillings, and any other dental issues could affect whether you can receive the treatment or not. Alongside the suitability of the treatment for you, it’s important to take into account that the procedure can affect people with sensitive teeth. Normally the process is pain free, however, patients with sensitive teeth could experience discomfort up to 48 hours after treatment.
Nevertheless, while there is a slight possibility of discomfort dependent on your teeth sensitivity, there is no denying that the results will provide you with a lovely white smile that could rival that of some Hollywood stars.
