Bright, White Summer

For some, a quick photo edit can whiten your teeth and give your smile a sparkle. But with teeth whitening, it is not just about looking good – it is about feeling good. With summer comes the long days of being outside with friends and family. Photos will be snapping left, right and centre. With teeth whitening, you will feel confident to flash that grin.

There are a range of factors that cause teeth to lose their whiteness: certain foods and drinks, smoking, poor oral hygiene, and ageing.[i] Sometimes genetics play a role too.[ii] Physical qualities such as tooth colour play a big role in human social interaction.[iii] Teeth discolouration can lead to low self-esteem and unhappiness.[iv] Young people may also find it harder to smile freely due to feeling self-conscious.[v]

The summer period is a great time to consider teeth whitening. It is a popular time for big social occasions: parties, weddings, family reunions and holidays. A pearly white smile can help you look and feel your best. Furthermore, it can help you feel more relaxed and confident in any situation.

Procedure possibility

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular dental procedures worldwide.[vi] It is also now very affordable. Visiting a dentist provides a safer, more effective and longer-lasting solution than at-home options for whitening. This is because at-home options may be sourced from manufacturers or locations outside the UK, where the products are less regulated and therefore could be harmful to the mouth.

Staining on your teeth could be intrinsic (inside your tooth enamel) or extrinsic (on the outside of your tooth).[vii] Dentists offer the best whitening service because they assess the type of discolouration on your teeth and tailor treatment accordingly. Professional teeth whitening can keep your smile bright for many months if you maintain with aftercare.

As a procedure, teeth whitening is the bleaching of the teeth to lighten the darker shades. This can be done in a few ways, including using a plastic whitening tray to regularly apply the bleaching gel.[viii] After receiving your customised tray from the dentist, this is mostly an at-home option.

Smiling releases endorphins and reduces stress. It makes you approachable and it makes you trustworthy. It boosts your immune system and it relieves pain. Sharing your smile can have the same effect on other people. Tooth whitening can give you that confidence to share it.
