Damage limitation!

 

Did you know that the thin outer layer of your teeth, the enamel, is the hardest substance in the human body? But enamel is still susceptible to damage and loss. Once it’s gone, enamel can’t re-form, so we need to protect our enamel for the life of our teeth.

Whitening can help by producing a younger looking effect. If we’re not embarrassed by or conscious of our teeth, we smile naturally and confidently. Smiling has been shown to improve mood by triggering the production of endorphins. (more…)
