Whether you want to boost your smile in time for Christmas or are planning further ahead, we can help.
The New Year tends to bring out the optimist in many of us and the idea that we will suddenly become fit enough to run a marathon or lose enough weight to fit into the slimmest of clothes, seems eminently possible at this time of the year.
As those of us of a certain age know though, many of these aims are left unfulfilled due to lack of time or determination. There are other resolutions though, that can be achieved and these are often best done with the aid of a professional to help us along the way. One case in point is the desire to have a more attractive smile.
Your pre Christmas boost
Although it is cutting it a little fine, it is still possible to give your smile a real boost before the Christmas festivities begin. The most effective way to make this change in such a short time is to have your teeth whitened. Because this does involve the production of trays which fit over the teeth, you will need to act quickly. With a quick appointment, the production of the trays and a treatment time of around two weeks, your treatment may just be complete in time for Christmas day. Even if it is not, as long as you act quickly, you will be well on your way and should still see a significant improvement in the colour of your teeth by the 25th.
For those who do leave it too late to have this procedure, all is not lost. Although less effective than a whitening procedure, a scale and polish, performed by the hygienist at our Bedford practice, may also brighten your teeth a little, removing some surface staining. It will also help in making sure that your overall oral health is in a good condition before festivities begin.
Longer term improvements
In the event that you simply don’t have time to organise teeth whitening procedure before Christmas, you might wish instead, to look to the longer term, taking your time to get the results just right. The best way to do this is to arrange to have an initial consultation with one of our cosmetic dental team at The Dental Centre Bedford. During this consultation we will discuss with you, your hopes and aims, as well as practicalities such as budget and payment plans. We will also need to ensure that your mouth is healthy before any work starts. There is little point in having beautiful looking teeth if they will soon need to be filled or extracted because of tooth decay!
Your personalised smile makeover may consist of a single treatment, or, where required, a combination. This will vary from person to person.
