The Power of Smiling and the Reasons to Keep Smiling

The daily interaction with my patients has enriched me in both professionally and personally. After 15 years of practicing dentistry I have seen time and again how people that smile are happier, look healthier and live longer. These patients generally take few or no medications and have a “clean” medical history. When I run into one of these “happy and healthy old patients”, I ask them what they do to stay happy and healthy. The common answer is: Smile!

hollywood smile

1. A natural remedy

Studies have shown that smiling releases serotonin and endorphins. We can help our body release these brain chemicals by laughing.

2. Relieves Stress

Smiling helps prevent us from looking tired, worn down, and overwhelmed. When you are stressed, take time to smile. You will feel better.

3. Boosts Your Immune System

Smiling improves immune function, possibly because you are more relaxed. Have you noticed that “Happy People” don’t get sick as often as unhappy people?

4. Lowers Your Blood Pressure

Sit for a few minutes and take a reading. Then smile for a minute and take another reading while still smiling. You will see a difference.

5- Changes Moods

When someone is smiling they brighten up the room, change situations and the moods of others. A smiling person brings happiness to others.

6. Makes You Look Younger and More Attractive

We are naturally attracted to smiles. The muscles used to smile lift the face, making a person appear younger. Avoid surgery: Just smile more. You’ll look younger and feel better!

7. Improves your Self-Esteem

Your smile conveys friendliness; it makes you approachable. People who smile appear more confident, and are more likely to be promoted. Put on a smile at meetings and appointments and see the results!

 8. Helps You Stay Positive

Try this test: Smile. Now try to think of something negative without losing the smile. Hard, isn’t it? Smiling can cure anxiety and depression.

9. IT IS FREE!

ARE YOUR TEETH KEEPING YOU FROM SMILING?

If you are uncomfortable with the appearance of your teeth, the dentist can help you bring back your smile!  A simple cleaning, teeth whitening, crowns or veneers could drastically improve your health and self-esteem.

At Dentcare Clinic, we are fully committed to helping patients achieve a healthy, beautiful smile. For more information about teeth whitening, then please contact the team: dentcarecenter@gmail.com+971-4-4370111.

The 8 Dos and Don’ts of Getting a Hollywood Smile

We Reached Out To a Tooth Tech Expert To See What Tips And Tricks To Be Mindful Of When Taking The Pearly Plunge On a Whiter, Brighter Smile

teeth whitening

A sparkling set of pearly whites are often thought to be the secret behind the ultimate winning smile – not to mention Hollywood-esque good looks.

A recent study carried out by researchers from Leeds and Central Lancashire University revealed that when presented with 150 images of men and women, partakers chose those with the most evenly spaced, white teeth as the most attractive. When delving deeper into the reasons behind why this was, it was concluded that teeth are viewed as the human equivalent of a peacock’s tail – a sign of health and genetic quality designed to help choose a mate. And, having witnessed many a celebrity transformation thanks to a new set of bright white gnashers, we know the dazzling difference they can make.

Aside from the risk of wasting money on products which do not work, it is even more imperative to make the right decision, as many unlicensed treatments or products can put your oral health at risk, causing irreparable damage to your teeth and enamel.

1. Do Visit a Dentist

When considering undergoing teeth whitening, it is crucial that you visit a qualified and registered dentist. The UK General Dental Council has deemed that tooth whitening is the practice of dentistry and therefore it should only be carried out by appropriately trained and registered dental professionals.

It’s fine to use at-home treatments that are supervised by a dentist if the appropriate whitening gel is used as these can be very effective and convenient. However, beware of gels bought on the internet as at best they do nothing to improve the whiteness of your teeth, and at worst can be extremely acidic and harmful to your teeth.

2. Don’t Expect Miracles From Toothpaste

All toothpastes have a detergent-like effect on the surface of the teeth, and when combined with brushing will remove superficial stains, making the teeth feel and look cleaner. Whitening toothpastes are basically for stain removal and use either enzymes or mechanical particles to remove stains. They may be useful if you drink lots of tea, coffee and other stain-producing liquids and foods, but they do not whiten teeth.

3. Do Look At The Ingredientshollywood smile

In 2012, a change in EU regulations made sure that the maximum concentration of Hydrogen Peroxide allowed in whitening gel is 6%. If you are offered anything above this concentration, then it is illegal and you must not use it. Make sure to report any suspected illegal whitening practice to your dentist.

At Dentcare, we use the PrevDent power whitening; the treatment uses the standard 6% hydrogen peroxide to whiten your teeth, but the solution also contains tiny particles of the same mineral found in teeth and bones that give them their hardness and strength. These particles adhere to your tooth enamel and exposed dentin, filling in the lesions, restoring the enamel, reducing tooth sensitivity and creating a smoother tooth surface. PrevDent achieves very good results with a less aggressive ingredient and this results in far less sensitivity for the patient overall.

4. Don’t Forget Your Fillings

It is important to remember that when undertaking tooth whitening, only the natural tooth structure will change shade. Any pre-existing tooth coloured restorations, such as fillings, will likely no longer match the surrounding tooth and will need replacing. Ideally, you should whiten the teeth to your desired colour and then change the fillings to match. Before undergoing teeth whitening you should also choose a shade that will suit your face and not give you that unnatural Hollywood look. It is best to pick the shade that relates to your skin tone – using the shade of your sclera (white of your eyes) is a good guide.

5. Don’t Substitute Regular Visits To The Dentist With Oil Pulling

Oil pulling to whiten teeth and improve overall oral health has become increasingly popular with many celebrities endorsing the craze; however, there has been no evidence to date that this method works. Essentially, this technique involves swishing a tablespoon of oil around the mouth for 15-20 minutes; this then supposedly draws out toxins in your body and your mouth, improving your oral health and in turn, whitening teeth as stains are drawn out and removed.

If you are going to try this technique make sure you do not substitute it with your regular visits to the dentist as it will not reverse tooth decay or help extensively to whiten teeth. Some stains may be removed, but regular visits to the dentist are still essential and it is advised that whitening treatments must always be carried out by your dentist.

6. Do Be Aware Of Over-The-Counter Uv Kits

Although DIY kits bought over-the-counter claim to be safe, they can easily be used incorrectly and research has shown that they can lead to stomach problems, mouth infections, toothache, gum- shrinking and even nerve damage. Ideally It is best not to use these kits as you can also result in having spotted or patchy teeth due to an uneven spread of bleach.

Professional home whitening systems provided by your dentist are highly effective – however, products available on the high street do not contain enough active ingredient of Hydrogen Peroxide or Carbamide Peroxide to have any real effect on the tooth colour.

7. Don’t Use Whitening Strips More Than Once A Year

Teeth whitening strips are reasonably priced and easy to order, and if you have used them before you will notice a brighter and whiter smile. However, when used excessively these strips can cause damage and painful sensitivity to your teeth. You may also find that white spots occur on your gums which is not ideal; the strips themselves do not actually get into the crevices between teeth so you may also see uneven colour. If you are going to use whitening strips though then it is best to stick to the recommended usage of no more than one course a year.

8. Do Steer Clear Of Staining Foods After Whitening

There is no hard evidence that you need to avoid consuming coloured foods when teeth are whitened, however it is best to steer clear of foods that would stain a white ceramic bowl when left to sit in it for a few hours. Generally the biggest culprits for staining teeth that you should avoid straight after whitening are tobacco, black tea or coffee and red wine.

How white will my teeth get?

After whitening with the Dentcare Clinic Teeth Whitening System, teeth shades brighten an average of five to 14 shades on the Teeth Shade Card. Even though individual results will vary based on how discolored the teeth were originally, the end result will be brighter, shiny teeth. Remember, everyone’s teeth are different and your teeth will only go as white as your teeth will go. Everyone’s teeth have a stopping point.

How long will the whitening last?

This varies from person to person and depends on your diet and lifestyle, but the effects usually last for one to three years with proper maintenance. Periodic touch-up treatments are recommended for customers who frequently consume products such as coffee, dark soda, tea, red wine, tomatoes sauce or other staining products such as tobacco.

Is Dentcare Clinic Teeth Whitening safe?

Yes, our products are made in Da vinici USA laboratories and are FDA compliant. Scientific research has shown that the active ingredients in the Dentcare Clinic Teeth Whitening Gels are safe and effective for cosmetic teeth whitening. The DaVinci Teeth Whitening Gel does not change or damage the structure of the teeth; it merely lifts and removes the stains, making your teeth brighter.

How long does a whitening session take?

One whitening session takes 20 minutes to complete. Depending on the level of discoloration of your teeth you may choose a 2nd and 3rd 20 minute session. Start to finish your whitening session will take 20 – 60 minutes. It takes no longer than the time it would for you to have a haircut or a facial – it is that simple!

What is the difference between Dentcare Clinic Teeth Whitening and other professional teeth whitening performed in dental offices?

The Dentcare Clinic Teeth Whitening System uses the same technology; however, our process has been simplified using our cosmetic whitening gel specially developed for the use with the LED light.

Does it hurt?

Most clients experience no sensitivity during or after the session. A very small percentage of clients may feel some sensitivity on the teeth or soft tissues, especially if they consume very cold or hot foods or drinks within two hours after the treatment.

Therefore it is recommended that clients avoid consuming extremely hot or cold food or beverages for the first two hours following the treatment. Any sensitivity is usually gone within 24 hours or for immediate relief to use our re-mineralizing and de-sensitizing gel.

Will Dentcare Clinic Teeth Whitening work on crowns, fillings, veneers, and bridges (composite materials)?

Dentcare Clinic’s teeth whitening will remove staining from composite materials but will not whiten the composite materials beyond the original color of the material used. It works well if your natural teeth are darker than the composite materials original color. Teeth whitening is a good option if you plan to replace the crown or filling after your whitening treatment. It will not damage or hurt the composite material.

Teeth Whitening in Dubai

teeth whiteningWhat is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a simple cosmetic dentistry procedure routinely used to lighten the color of your teeth.

Is teeth whitening necessary?

The porcelain like enamel on the surface of your teeth is a mix of microscopic crystalline rods. Enamel is the hardest substance in the body and it safeguards your teeth from the effects of gnashing, chewing, acid attack caused by sugar etc. However acids from food and drink and continuous movement of teeth causes damage to enamel due to wear and tear. Another visible effect is yellowing of teeth and appearance of millions of micro cracks in the enamel. If left untreated these micro cracks gradually enlarge resulting more and more spaces between the individual crystalline enamel rods. Over time stains and debris fill these gaps leading to lackluster look.

Tooth Discoloration and types of stains

There are two types of tooth discoloration:
1 – Extrinsic Staining
2 – Intrinsic Staining

Extrinsic stains, as the name suggests, appear on the outer side of the teeth. Common causes are usage of dark colored beverages, tobacco and regular wear and tear. By brushing daily and prophylactic dental cleaning, extrinsic stains can be removed. In case of stubborn stains, additional efforts like teeth bleaching needs to be done. If not treated, persistent extrinsic stains can penetrate into dentin and become ingrained.

Intrinsic stains are the stains that appear in the interior of teeth. Intrinsic stains are caused due to aging, trauma, exposure to minerals like tetracycline during the tooth formation and/or excessive ingestion of fluoride. Intrinsic stains were thought to be very hard to be removed through bleaching. However, at Dentcare Clinic, we use advanced technologies in the cosmetic industry to make the process easy and effective.

Causes of tooth staining

There are number of reasons for tooth staining. Some of the common ones are given below:

Age: There is direct relation between color of teeth and age. Over the years, teeth start discoloring as a result of wear and tear and accumulation of stains. These days, most of the teenagers are facing immediate discoloration which left untreated might be harder to cleanse in the later stages.

Translucency and thinness: Every tooth shows some translucency due to the age. Every tooth shows some translucency. Those that are opaque and thick have an advantage: they appear lighter in color, show brighter and are responsive to bleaching. The front teeth which are thinner and thicker have less of the pigment that is necessary for bleaching. According to cosmetic dentists, transparency is the only condition that cannot be corrected by any form of teeth whitening.

Eating habits: Continuous consumption of red wine, coffee, tea, oranges, carrots and food & beverages which are rich in color can cause staining of the teeth. Acidic foods such as citrus fruits can also contribute to enamel erosion.

Smoking habits: Smoking is not only dangerous for your body, but also to your dental health. Nicotine leaves brownish substance in the tooth surface which leads to intrinsic staining.

Drugs / chemicals: Tooth damages are also caused by many drugs (prescribed & illegal). Usage of tetracycline during tooth formation causes brown/dark grey ribbon stains which are hard to remove.

Grinding & Trauma: Teeth grinding causes a lot of stress on the teeth leading to micro cracks with in the teeth. Cracks are also caused by any serious injuries which eventually lead to accumulation of stains and junks.

How does Teeth Whitening Work?

Our teeth whitening processes completely removes the stains and debris from the affected part. A number of the cracks quickly re-mineralized by saliva and whereas other area stuffed up once more with organic junk.

At our clinic, we use the best gels that contain food grade hydrogen peroxide which is highly rated in cosmetic industry. It penetrates into the enamel to get to the discolored molecules down to the dentin layer – the layer under the enamel. The whitening works through the breakdown of the food grade hydrogen peroxide with the assistance of our cool blue LED light into a water and a free radical oxygen molecule.

This highly reactive oxygen molecule reacts with the discolored molecules in the teeth, breaking the bonds that hold them together and breaking the discolored molecule into pieces and washes it out without hurting any part of the tooth. This process is called oxidization. The oxygen molecules spread, whitening the entire tooth. As a result, the client is left with a brighter, whiter smile.
