People really notice each other’s smiles. Clocking each other’s smiles is hard-wired into us from millions of years ago when our ancestors had to be able to tell at a distance whether that hominid they came across was friendly or not, and the showing of the teeth and the crinkling of the eyes became the global non-verbal signal of peace.
Even today, although we have many other ways of communicating, what your smile looks like has a profound effect on the people you meet. At Kingston Dental Clinic, your cosmetic dentist in Kingston, we can help you make sure that your first impression is a positive one.
Getting the colour right
The colour of your teeth says a lot about you. If you have yellower teeth, no matter how healthy they may be, people are going to assume you are older than you are. White teeth are associated with youth because as we age, the enamel on our teeth wears thin and the yellower dentin below starts to show through. The cosmetic dentist in Kingston can help you whiten your teeth with the Enlighten whitening system, the only whitening system in the world that guarantees a B1 shade, the whitest shade in the UK.
We make you a set of whitening trays that fit your teeth precisely. You can then take the kit home and whiten your teeth at your convenience. You can also combine home whitening with a power whitening session with the cosmetic dentist in Kingston.
Although teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment, you can combine it with other treatments to create what we in the dental profession call a smile makeover.
We can cover over chips, cracks and minor misalignments, as well as any stains that won’t respond to teeth whitening, which only works on surface stains.
We can also deal with gaps between teeth, straighten wonky teeth and create a more harmonious ratio between gums and teeth.
