‘People should quit smoking’ before London teeth whitening


Quit smoking before London teeth whiteningThose booked in for teeth whitening in London should stop smoking before the procedure, an expert has advised.

Dr Michael Apa is a dentist in the US and suggested quitting the cigs can make a difference to one’s smile.

A smoker on one pack a day can experience teeth discolouration and lose a couple of gnashers over ten years, he warned, citing Academy of General Dentistry claims.

Therefore, before a teeth whitening procedure, patients should consider what lifestyle changes they can make to improve their grin.

"The external causes of an aging smile are determined by health and lifestyle decisions you make everyday," Dr Apa added.

Another tip given was to avoid food and drinks that can cause discolouration. These generally cover dark products such as red wine, coffee, ketchup and chocolate.

In addition, use a good quality toothbrush that is less than three months old. Those with gum disease should change theirs every four to six weeks, he recommended.

Celebrities recently reported to have undergone cosmetic dentistry include Louis Walsh and Danielle Bux.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19394941-ADNFCR

People turning to Zoom teeth whitening ‘for brighter smiles’


People turning to Zoom teeth whitening 'for brighter smiles'Dentists across the globe are recommending teeth whitening bleach as a way to achieve shiny white teeth.

These procedures are not just for personal confidence either, with some medical professionals suggesting that they may help to boost your career prospects, with employers likely to look for clean-cut people to fill any vacancies.

A few years of drinking tea, coffee, cola and red wine – plus smoking – can cause teeth to become stained, but luckily teeth whitening treatments can completely remove all traces of your beverage intake.

It is widely accepted that white teeth are a sign of accountability due to the difficulty of ensuring their whiteness over a long period of time.

Sometimes brushing your teeth just isn’t enough to combat years of tea drinking, particularly if the person involved is a smoker, with cigarettes known for causing teeth to yellow.

‘Confidence-boosting’ Invisalign range launched


The Invisalign range expands on products already availableAlign Technology has launched a new range of Invisalign features – and they give more confidence to doctors using them in clinical settings.

This is according to the manufacturer, which said the features will provide better results in procedures such as teeth rotation, root movements and interproximal reduction.

Optimised attachments will now be custom-designed to be patient-specific and therefore increase predictability.

Power Ridges, which used to only be available with Invisalign Teen, will be an alternative option for attachments where additional force is needed.

Also among the new features is Velocity Optimisation, to give more control to the entire tooth and root.

Vice president, marketing and chief marketing officer of Align Technology Sheila Tan said the developments were based on results of extensive customer research.

"We believe that these improvements will give doctors greater confidence in what they can achieve with Invisalign and help deliver the outcomes doctors expect in more clinical applications," she added.

One person reported to have used Invisalign braces is Danielle Bux, who married Gary Lineker in recent weeks.
