show your teeth some loving care this valentine’s day As we are all getting settled into the New Year, Valentine’s Day is once again around the corner.

Candy, cards, and teddy bears are littering grocery stores and shop windows.

And this Valentine’s Day it’s not just your loved ones that you should be thinking about.

Spend a little time this February showing your teeth some love and it will come back to you. Valentine’s Day is all about kisses and candy, and both kisses and candy are all about your mouth!

And on Valentine’s Day, by improving your dental health and shining smile, you could have a more kissable mouth, with teeth in better condition.

So, we here at My Local Dentists Northmead, are happy to offer you these words of advice as Valentine’s Day arrives!

The Advantages of In-Office Teeth Whitening

Do you look in the mirror and see darker stained teeth when you smile? Well, you’re not alone.

Unfortunately, the passage of time and our love of coffee, tea, and red wine means that as we get older our teeth become less white, less dazzling, and less attractive. But the good news is that this can often be reversed.

Tooth whitening uses bleaching agents usually in the form of hydrogen and carbamide peroxide and is normally offered in two ways. These are in-clinic treatments and at home or DIY treatments.

In-clinic treatments are carried out at your dental office. Your dentist can customise a whitening process based on your individual circumstances.

The whitening process inside a clinic is shorter, safer, and more effective than DIY approaches, which include “whitening” toothpaste, strips, and gels,

A dental check-up will also reveal if you are a good candidate for laser teeth whitening.

If are a good candidate, in-office tooth whitening can have amazing and rapid effects, sometimes brightening teeth up to eight shades in only one visit.

Ask your Northmead dentist if teeth whitening treatments are a good choice for your teeth.

If they are, in almost no time you will be able to face Valentine’s Day, and every day, with a bright, attractive smile.

Take Good Care of Your Teeth All-Year Round

The other “secret” to attractive, clean and bright teeth isn’t a secret at all! It’s old fashioned home-care including:

  • 2×2 brushing (twice a day, at least two minutes) with fluoridated toothpaste
  • Use dental floss daily.
  • Eat well, limit snacks, and avoid foods that stick to teeth.
  • Drink fluoridated water, particularly after eating.
  • Visit your dentist at least twice a year.

If you follow this advice, your teeth have a better chance to stay attractive and healthy.
