How Tooth Whitening Can Help With Dental Hygiene

Friday, February 24th, 2017

shutterstock_171267962Tooth whitening is one of our most popular cosmetic dental treatments. Nowadays, everybody wants bright, beautiful smiles. If you’re considering tooth whitening, there are numerous advantages. Here are some of the reasons why you may want to invest in whitening treatment.

Improved confidence

Our smiles are perhaps our most noticeable features, and it’s very difficult to hide your teeth away all the time if you’re not happy with the look of your smile. If you don’t like your teeth, this can really affect your confidence and make you feel self-conscious, especially when your smile is on show. Whitening treatment is a simple and affordable way of enhancing the aesthetic appeal of your smile. White teeth look beautiful and healthy, and a bright smile will also make you look and feel younger.

Improved dental hygiene

If you’ve got a glowing white smile, the last thing you want is the shine to wear off. It makes sense that if you love your new smile, you’ll make more effort to keep it in tiptop condition. If you look after your teeth, you’re likely to enjoy the rewards of whitening treatment for years to come. We recommend twice-daily brushing and regular trips to the dentist teamed with a healthy diet.

Better chances of career and dating success

Research shows that a crisp white smile is much more attractive to potential employers and dates than stained or discoloured teeth. If you get your teeth whitened, it could hold the key to career and dating success!

If you’d like to have a stunning white smile, why not give us a call and find out more about our incredible whitening options? With home whitening treatment, you can fit your treatment in around your normal schedule and you’ll have a wonderful white smile in just 2 weeks!

Troublesome Thumb-Sucking Can Test Your Toddlers Teeth

Monday, May 12th, 2014

398467_blogMany children suck their thumbs as a comfort when they are tired, upset or ill and while it can be very cute, it can also be problematic for the teeth. Thumb-sucking can contribute to orthodontic issues, which may require treatment in the future.

The implications of thumb-sucking

Sucking your thumb is a very common childhood habit, but ideally, you should try to encourage your child to stop at an early age, as sucking the thumb over a prolonged period of time can affect tooth development and cause the front teeth to be pushed forward, which may change the alignment of your child’s lower and upper arches of the teeth and cause problems with speech and the formation of sounds, as well as the look of the smile.

If there are any issues with your child’s bite, which is the term used to describe the way in which both sets of teeth match-up together, the most common course of action to take is orthodontic treatment. The aim of this treatment is to straighten the teeth to improve oral function and speech and make the smile look more attractive. Children who have large buck teeth or protruding front teeth may get teased and this can have long-lasting implications for confidence and self-esteem.

Ways to encourage your child to stop sucking their thumb

It’s often harder to stop your child from sucking their thumb than using a dummy because obviously the thumb is attached and cannot be take away, like a dummy can. Often, it’s a good idea to introduce alternatives, such as a comforter or a teddy bear or to do a deal with your child so that they get the chance to earn rewards if they agree to stop sucking their thumb.
