Treat Yourself To A Valentine Smile At Lighthouse Dental In Ipswich

Make Valentines Even More Memorable For Your Partner With A Brand New Smile!

It can’t have escaped your notice that, where the Christmas cards were a few weeks ago, there are now row upon rows of Valentine’s cards taking their place? This has become an increasingly popular occasion in the UK, with couples constantly seeking ways to improve the experience of Valentine’s day.

Although we don’t wish to play the role of Cupid, why not let our Ipswich dental practice improve the occasion by helping you to have a whiter smile? Modern teeth whitening treatment is safe and very effective and will last for many months before starting to wear off.

Why not toothpaste?

Given the increasing number of advertisements on TV for teeth whitening toothpaste, it is not unreasonable to ask why you shouldn’t just take this route. The reality is that these will have a very limited, if any, effect on your teeth. Whilst they may contain ingredients that aim to lighten the inner part of your teeth which become darker with age, these are in such small quantities, due to safety regulations, that unfortunately, you will probably see very little difference.

Those that aim to whiten the teeth by removing surface staining may do so by adding extra abrasive elements to the toothpaste. Whilst this may work to some extent, if used excessively, it can damage the protective enamel on your teeth, leaving them more prone to tooth decay.

Leave it to the professionals

Although they might appear to us as a solid structure, teeth are actually complex living things that contain nerves and tiny blood vessels at their centre. It is important, whilst whitening your teeth, to ensure that the tooth stays healthy. The best way to do this is to see the cosmetic dentist at The Lighthouse Dental Practice.

Our whitening treatment is tried, tested and safe and you will see a significant improvement in the whiteness of your teeth afterwards. You can also be sure that we will take good care of your teeth and gums, avoiding any potential burning caused by the whitening bleach coming into contact with the soft tissues of your mouth.

Our customised treatment means that you will be able to have a whiter smile for the big day if you book now. Alternatively, why not consider treating your partner to a teeth whitening treatment at our Ipswich practice? A great-looking smile goes a long way!
