Manchester residents can be forgiven for feeling their teeth should be dazzlingly, brighter-than-bright white; after all, this is the image they are fed by the media every day. Cosmetic dentists in Manchester can create a dazzling, but totally natural smile with gentle, non-invasive tooth whitening procedures.
Some American celebrities have gone to such great lengths in their quest for the perfect smile. Simon Cowell is one British celebrity who has endorsed this trend but others, such as Ricky Gervais, have been equally successful by staying true to their roots. In dental matters such as tooth whitening, Americans see uniformity and aesthetic enhancement as being most important, while the British have a more natural approach. Cosmetic dentistry can transform a person’s looks, but it should not transform their character.
Natural tooth whitening shouldn’t be frightening
Human teeth vary in colour, but tend to be more cream than pure white. With tooth bleaching, or any other kind of cosmetic dentistry, Manchester dentists will always consider the natural colour of the patients’ teeth. However, modern techniques can take the tooth beyond its original colour – how much is up to the patient.
Tooth bleaching involves special dental trays customised for the patient’s mouth, into which a solution of hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide is placed, and the tray attached to the patient’s teeth. It may take several sessions to get the teeth the desired shade.
Very strong solutions can burn the mouth and cause tooth sensitivity, so reputable cosmetic dentists in Manchester use a milder solution over a longer period of time. The end result is the same – perfect, gleaming teeth.
