Win! Teeth Whitening from Vitality Dental

Arvin and the Vitality team

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]How many of you reading this can truly claim not to mind a trip to the dentist? I can bet my bottom dollar that it won’t be many. Over the last two decades or so, dentists have worked hard to reassure anxious patients who have had a bad experience at a school dentist in the 1960s or perhaps even a heavy-handed colleague filling every tooth with metal in the 1980s.

Every dental practice you visit will now advertise gentle, pain-free dentistry. And thank goodness they do. From where I sit, on the front line, I see the problem is still immense. Patients continue to stay away in their droves, and each week at Vitality we must see at least one new patient who has not been to the dentist Vitalityfor a decade or more. These patients have often experienced pain, or a deterioration in the appearance of their teeth, but have still been reluctant to take that first step. They come terrified, sometimes unable to tolerate even an examination, and it is so unfair that they have been dealt this blow by a member of my profession often decades ago.

Over the years, a lot of effort has gone into the education of the public and dental professionals now go out of their way to comprehensively inform patients of all their options as opposed to telling patients what they need. We find that a lot of patients take an interest in the appearance of their teeth, and also increasingly the health and quality of facial skin. Many patients now understand the benefits of non-invasive treatments such as teeth whitening, while others are getting increasingly savvy with occasional use of preventive anti-wrinkle treatments. Gone are the days of discoloured teeth being drilled down and covered with crowns or veneers; nowadays we treat most cases with whitening and bonding, where teeth are lightened gently at home and then minimally treated with adhesive fillings to achieve symmetry.
