I was lucky enough to have been blessed with pretty nice teeth. I didn’t need braces or treatment as a teenager and yet they are remarkably straight, so much so that I’m often asked if they are veneers. My big downfall was that I never looked after them well enough as a kid which coupled with too much sugar has left me with one too many fillings. Fillings don’t bother me too much though as from you can’t really see them.
The thing that does bother me is the colour of my teeth. Even though they have been always been pretty white (people often compliment them) they never looked quite bright enough for me. I don’t smoke, and don’t drink or eat much in the way of heavily coloured foods so they don’t pick up too much staining. I’d never say no to a little boost though so was delighted recently when Philips Zoom got in touch and asked me to try out their professional whitening treatment.
I went along to the in Glasgow for the treatment (you can find your nearest clinic on the Philips Zoom website) where I met Dr Ambigai Jeyabalan and her fantastic team. Before the whitening treatment begins they need to take some before images and then some impressions of your teeth. This is not the most pleasant experience but it only lasts a couple of minutes and is worth it as they use these to make up some moulds for you to take home with you and try the home whitening kit.
