Probably every generation in the city of Leeds has seen some amazing jump in technology at some point in their lives, but when it comes to dentistry, especially cosmetic dentistry, this is truly a golden age- just take a look at tooth whitening.
Who would have thought 20 years ago that you would be able to walk into a shop and buy yourself a DIY whitening kit, toothpastes, touch up pens or bleaching strips to do your teeth with at home, and cheaply too- such ways of bleaching your teeth have advanced tremendously.
However, and not to be left out, your dentist has a couple of absolute gems to offer you as well. You can be supplied with a state of the art kit that gives staggering results after a couple of weeks, or aside from this, new laser whitening technology can see your teeth done in an hour either at the dentists or at home! There is a catch to all this though; your teeth need to be in fairly good nick in the first place, so if your teeth are looking a little battle-worn, you will have to consider other options, but which give just as good results. Porcelain veneers and cosmetic bonding, as well as covering up heinous crimes to the teeth, will also restore their colour.
A word of caution though, before going it alone with any of these ideas, you should run them by your dentist first to be on the safe side, otherwise you could do costly damage with these home-made ideas if you suffer from some form of gum disease.
