A white wedding – Part 4

My teeth whitening journey from ‘no, I can’t’ to no looking back

Some decisions we make and never regret. For me, it was saying ‘yes’ when my now-husband proposed.

Deciding to have my teeth whitened was another. Admittedly it wasn’t an immediate ‘yes’, unlike my instant and resolute response to my true love’s request. It was a decision which took a while to make but once I’d decided, I never looked back.

Our wedding day was drawing near and for almost three weeks, I’d been wearing my bespoke trays with whitening gel every night. I knew an amazing transformation was taking place and when I saw Neresh and Hayley for a check up towards the end of the process, this was confirmed.

I was asked to hold up a chart, which shows the varying shades of tooth discolouration, next to my teeth – just as I did during my initial consultation. It was wonderful when Neresh confirmed that my teeth had lightened by 12 shades – a remarkable result!

The beauty of ‘at home whitening’ is that you can control how white your teeth become. The fear that my teeth wouldn’t look natural was unrealised as I received compliments on ‘looking well’ rather than being asked ‘have you had your teeth whitened?’ My aim had been achieved.

As well as making my teeth look brighter, whiter and cleaner, the process seemed to give my entire face a boost; my lips appeared to have more colour, my skin tone looked healthier and the whites of my eyes seemed brighter. Just what you want before you walk down the aisle!

And so the big day arrived. I awoke to dazzling winter sunshine and the knowledge that today I’d become a ‘Mrs’. All eyes were on me; I felt a million dollars and I didn’t stop smiling a confident smile which came from the inside out. It was a day I’ll never forget and a white wedding in more ways than one.

A beautiful smile using the latest, and least invasive, approach…

For years, patients have been visiting Dental Studio looking for that smile that will bring back confidence lost. Patients complain of missing their smile, hiding their teeth, being embarrassed of the colour, shape or alignment, but also being nervous about the treatment involved in putting things right.

We are proud to be offering a new type of treatment that could solve all of these problems without the need for drilling away tooth surface – a beautiful smile using a minimally invasive process – ABB or Align, Bleach, Bond.

The process is as follows:

It all starts with Alignment, or tooth straightening! Using one of the invisible straightening systems that we have in place – 6 Month Smile, Invisalign, Lingual Braces or Simpli 5 – we straighten the teeth to the perfect position to enhance your new smile.

The second process is the Bleaching – the whitening of the teeth, improving the colour of the teeth by up to 12 shades.

The final stage of the smile makeover is the Bonding section, or the placement of tooth coloured fillings on the front of the teeth. This is less invasive than the placement of veneers, which involves the drilling away of tooth material. These fillings are placed over your original teeth, allowing us to get the perfect shape and shade, without damaging the underlying structure.

No need for veneers, no drilling away of precious tooth, just amazing results.

We are offering this treatment as a package to our patients – please speak to reception for more information on 02392 254234 or 01243 532992.
