We’re all living super fast, super busy lifestyles. It’s hard enough to find time to get all the housework done or all the prep for the next big meeting, where on earth are we meant to find the time to pop to the dentist to get our smiles in tip top condition? Yup, agreed – you can’t. But not to worry, because with our fast world comes more and more amazing evolutions of treatments and now we’re able to get the cosmetics procedures we want from the comfort of our own home.
At Home Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is probably the most common practice when it comes to cosmetic dentistry, everyone wants a whiter smile and luckily the professional products are quickly becoming far more accessible and easily available. There are now at home whitening kits that work in conjunction with your dentist.
The kits work by trays being made to fit your teeth exactly and then you take these home to use with a bleaching solution. You’ll insert the solution onto the inside surface of the tray and then leave them in your mouth overnight. Over a usually two week period you’ll see your teeth begin to whiten and brighten.
What’s amazing about this is that it involves just a few quick trips to the dentist. One – to get the impressions made, two – to pick the trays and bleach up and three – to check your final progress! There are even some brands that will have you make the moulds yourself at home and send you out your trays – even better!
Maintaining A White Smile
After you’ve started your whitening journey you’re going to want to do all you can to keep that smile nice and bright. There’s certain foods and drinks that are naturally more staining so if you’re a big tea or coffee drinker now could be the perfect time to cut down. Other staining foods include: red wine, curry, berries, fruit juice, tomatoes ketchup and mustard. You don’t need to cut these out of your diet but maybe reevaluate how much you’re consuming.

The practice will likely be linked to an app which will be able to track and monitor your teeths progress and then send them all the information they need.
