Five Ways to Protect Your Smile This Summer

The sun is shining, the days are long, and many of us are looking forward to enjoying some well-earned time off. This summer, you want to make sure you make the most of your downtime, rather than worrying about dental woes. Nobody wants to spend the holidays nursing an injury or dealing with troublesome toothache. It’s not always possible to prevent accidents and injuries, but here are 5 ways you can protect your smile this summer:

  1. Book a dental check: whether you’re heading off on holiday or you’re planning a relaxing staycation, it’s a good idea to see your dentist. If you haven’t had a check-up in the last nine months, call and make an appointment before you jet off or take time off. Dental checks enable your dentist to have a look for any problems or signs that you may not be aware of yet, and this can help to prevent decay, gum disease and oral infections.
  1. Wear a mouth guard if you’re playing sport: if you’re playing sport this summer, don’t forget to protect your teeth. If there’s a risk of dental injury, using a gum shield can help to prevent injuries and keep your smile in check.
  1. Brush twice a day, every day: brushing is the best way to keep dental disease at bay. Start and finish your day by brushing your teeth for at least 2 minutes using fluoride toothpaste. Set a timer and make sure you cover every individual tooth.
  1. Steer clear of fizzy drinks: many of us tend to consume more fizzy drinks in the summer, especially on holiday. Fizzy drinks are often packed with sugar, but they’re also acidic, which spells trouble for the enamel. Try and stick to water and if you must have fizzy pop, opt for diet versions and drink them with a meal.
  1. Wear your seat belt: this may sound very obvious, but it’s amazing how many people go on holiday and adopt a much more relaxed approach to health and safety. If you’re hiring a car or taking a taxi, don’t forget to buckle up. Seatbelts reduce the risk of serious injuries, including dental and facial injuries.

About tooth whitening

Tooth whitening is one of the most effective and affordable ways of giving your smile that extra bit of sparkle. If you thought radiant white smiles for just or Hollywood stars, think again!

There are various different types of tooth whitening treatment, including at-home therapies and in-chair treatments. At-home whitening is a great option for those who have hectic timetables and packed diaries. This type of treatment fits around your daily schedule, so you can enjoy a stunning smile with minimal disruption. Once you’ve been for an informal consultation, and we’ve created some impressions of your teeth, all you have to do is wait for your customised whitening moulds, and then you can start your treatment. These trays are worn for around 6 hours per day for 10-14 days. They should fit perfectly, and you can wear them at any time of day or night. After just a few days, you’ll notice a difference and by the time you finish treatment, you’ll have a glimmering, gleaming set of pearly whites.

We also offer express in-chair treatments, which can lighten the shade of your teeth in just a couple of hours. Whitening agent is applied to the teeth, and then activated using a light. You can simply lie back and relax while the treatment works its magic. We will be happy to put some music or a film on for you.

Is whitening safe?

If you’re interested in health news, you may have read some articles about the safety of tooth whitening. This is one of the safest cosmetic treatments on the market when it is offered by trained dentists. Whitening is a dental treatment, and should therefore be provided only by registered dentists. When you see an experienced dentist, you can enjoy optimum results, as well as peace of mind that you’re in the safest hands possible.
