Now that summer has arrived you’ve probably already planned your holiday destination and stocked up on the season’s must-haves - a new wardrobe, beach essentials and lots of sunscreen. But if you’re planning on getting summer-ready from head to toe, why not give your smile a summer makeover? Keeping your teeth looking healthy and bright will help you look your best and leave you smiling confidently for your holiday!
It’s important not to let your oral health care slip when you’re in holiday mode by making sure that you’re properly brushing and flossing the teeth, and maintaining a healthy, teeth-friendly diet. Avoid sugary drinks and swap things like red wine for white, and tea and coffee for herbal infusions.
Booking a comprehensive check-up should also be part of your summer oral healthcare, and a professional polish and clean will give you a glowing and healthier smile. But you can also transform your look and get a perfect summer-ready smile with these effective cosmetic treatments:
At Riverside Dental Spa we offer state of the art Enlighten tooth whitening as well as convenient take-home whitening kits for a bright summer smile. Our in-practice Enlighten system is the only tooth whitening treatment to guarantee VITA Shade B1 - the whitest shade on a regular dentist shade guide. Enlighten works in just 2-4 weeks to achieve the exact results you want, whatever your age, lifestyle, or the starting colour of the teeth. Our take-home whitening kits work just as quickly to deliver results and offer safer and much more reliable results than over the counter kits. Whatever your preference, we’d be happy to get you started - contact our practice to find out more.
Veneers are a simple and natural looking way to dramatically boost the appearance of your smile this summer. Dental veneers are very fine porcelain shells which are made to fit over the visible surface of your tooth. They are extremely versatile and can treat a range of flaws such as chipped, cracked or misshapen teeth, as well as discolouration. Used widely, veneers are long-lasting and create beautiful smiles.
Composite bonding, known as white fillings, helps cosmetic dentists fix a variety of dental flaws from gaps, to chips and cracks, uneven teeth or tooth decay. The colour of the filling is matched to the colour of your surrounding teeth, allowing you to change the shape and appearance of the tooth in a natural-looking way. Composite bonding is a quick and affordable option to improve your smile for your summer occasions. For pricing and other information, please speak to our dental team by arranging an appointment on 020 7091 0677.
If you’ve always wanted a straighter smile don’t let summer stop you! We offer three types of invisible braces that achieve results in just weeks to months instead of years. These treatments are designed to be much less noticeable than traditional metal braces, and come with a personalised dental plan to suit your budget and lifestyle.
There are plenty of options to get that straighter, healthier and better-looking smile you’re dreaming of this summer and many of these can be carried out in no time at all. If you’d like any more advice on taking care of your smile or on any of our makeover treatments, please contact us and we’d be happy to help you.
