My teeth whitening journey from ‘no, I can’t’ to no looking back
Having decided to say ‘I do’ to teeth whitening in readiness for my winter wedding, it was time to attend my initial consultation at The Dental Studio in Waterlooville to determine whether I was suitable for home whitening
When I arrived, the warm welcome I received from Neresh and Hayley set the scene for what was to follow; the most thorough and informative dental examination I’ve ever experienced.
Neresh spent time finding out about me and what I wanted, and then briefly explained the purpose of the consultation and what it would entail.
Firstly, my teeth were photographed and X-rayed from various angles. Within seconds the images – which were both slightly unnerving and utterly fascinating – were displayed on the large wall-mounted screen in front of me.
Neresh pointed out which teeth were strong, where enamel was thinning and which fillings were getting old. I was also photographed holding a chart, which depicts the various shades of tooth discolouration, next to my teeth. This meant the colour of my teeth could be compared pre- and post-whitening.
Throughout the consultation Neresh checked everything made sense, that I understood and was happy. It was a ‘yes’ hat-trick from me!
As my mouth MOT came to a close, Neresh delivered the good news; I was suitable for teeth whitening. A mould of my teeth was then taken so the custom-fit trays which hold the whitening gel could be created; this was quick, easy and straightforward.
I had just a week to wait before my bespoke trays were ready for collection and after my incredibly informative and enlightening consultation, I was starting to see my teeth in a whole new light – and looking forward to them becoming white.
