Happy Australia Day!
This is a bit belated, but I am having a bit of a relaxing day after spending the weekend with friends and family and also some work around the place. Like everyone else, it is great to socialise, but there is also the mundane to attend to.
Anyhow, today I find myself with a little bit of idle time and am catching up on some business emails (more mundane work?) and I see that my daughter, Ashleigh, sent me this link to add some fun to my day. So, for anyone that is tired of the same-old, same-old on the news, and if you have also found yourself with some rare idle time to take a break, you might likewise enjoy watching this.
I note recently an article in the news about teeth whitening kits purchased over the counter or online that use powders and oils, gels, toothpastes and LED lights - see the link here: Home teeth whitening kits can cause ‘permanent damage’
Damage to enamel can be permanent and there is also the potential for burned gums and blisters in the mouth and around the lips.
Here at Simply Beautiful Smiles, most of the issues we see here with over the counter teeth whitening kits relate to ineffective use due to poor concentrations of the active ingredients. This is then both a waste of time and money and usually leaves the purchaser reluctant to try again.
We use specially formulated products, that can only be used and prescribed by dentists. The actual process of treatment undertaken within the dental office is supervised to ensure that there is no permanent damage to tooth enamel and to immediately stop treatment should there be side effects, instead of unwittingly continuing treatment as would happen without supervision. Added to that, the dentist will not undertake any treatment if they believe that it is unsuitable or unsafe to do so.
Our products have higher efficacy than products purchased over the internet or shop counter, so we get great results with tooth whitening, and few if any side effects, especially because of the supervision during treatment for unforeseen side effects, which can happen.
Also, with our take-home top-up kits, you are only a telephone call away for advice if you should require it.
Yours in good health
This lovely lady, in her middle years, had severe wear and attrition of the upper 2 front teeth. Her main concern was the "chipping" of the teeth and poor aesthetics. An examination revealed severely worn 2 upper front teeth and a traumatic bite from over erupted bottom teeth. The upper smile line appears as a reverse of the normal smile line, bending upwards making the front teeth appear short.
Many options were available, including treating the 6 upper front teeth to change the shape and overall colour of the smile.
This likeable patient in his thirties, had a lot of old dentistry done many years ago in the Middle East.
Over time, the old dentistry and missing teeth took their toll and a smile rehabilitation was indicated. Part of the brief for the smile was to improve the shape of the teeth, close the spaces, improve the bite and replace the old, failing bridgework. The bite position had collapsed, the teeth were worn and discoloured and there was a large discrepancy between teeth size/jaw size, which resulted in many gaps between teeth.
