A Whiter Smile for National Smile Month
Give yourself something to Smile about - National Smile Month - 14th May to 13th June
Treat yourself to an A-list celebrity smile from the comfort of your own home
Tooth whitening has become the most commonly requested and performed cosmetic dental procedure on both sides of the Atlantic, with A-list celebrities such as Catherine Zeta Jones, Teri Hatcher and Halle Barry crediting their mega-watt smiles to whitening treatments.
But while most of us covet whiter, brighter teeth in order to look and feel more attractive, one in four people admit to being afraid of going to the dentist, according to a recent British Dental Health Foundation survey sponsored by Listerine for National Smile Week. The major reasons given for not going were a previous bad experience (42%), fear of pain (38%) and fear of needles and injections (19%).
However, a survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry has found that a killer smile can do wonders for your love life and career prospects.
96% of adults questioned believed that a brilliant smile makes a person more sexually attractive, while 74% felt that an unattractive smile could damage your chances of career success. * Research also suggests that over 30% of us are held back from achieving a full smile makeover by cost implications.*
So if you're unhappy with your discoloured teeth but can't afford the £500-600 typically charged by dentist for a basic whitening treatment, Whiter than White's safe, effective and reliable new 2 Step professional whitening system – priced at just £99 – could be the answer.
Inspired by Leading Dental Surgeons
Mirroring the popular whitening system used by cosmetic dentists, Whiter than White provides a custom-made gum shield which is filled with bleaching gel and worn over consecutive days until teeth reach the desired shade.
Whiter than White's professional whitening gel system is easy to use and will leave teeth up to eight shades lighter.
By doing this treatment at home and wearing your customised gum shield as often or as little as you want you can reach your desired shade without going too white. Furthermore, as you have all the items you need at home you can top up whenever you need to.
The two-step system differs from in-house treatments in that you take your own impression of your teeth using the putty provided and send this back to the dental lab in a freepost envelope where customised dental trays are made to fit snugly over your teeth and gums. While traditional home whitening kits provide users with a “one-size-fits-all” plastic tray, Whiter than White's customised upper and lower jaw trays fit the teeth and gums perfectly, ensuring maximum efficacy and comfort.
Dentist approved whitening gel is then applied to the trays twice a day for up to 14 days, resulting in your teeth becoming up to 8 shades whiter at a fraction of the usual cost.
So for just £99 you can transform your teeth and give yourself something to really smile about!
The Whiter than White's 2 Step Kit includes:
* CD-Rom and full written instructions
* 2 tubs of special impression putty and free-post envelope for returning your impressions
You will then be sent your customised trays along with part 2 of the kit:
* Mouth tray container
* 4 x 3cc syringes of whitening gel (20 applications)
* 4 applicator tips to ensure correct distribution of the gel within the trays
* Shade guide to measure your whiter smile
Whiter than White's Two Step Whitening System is available in two strengths – strong gel or sensitive for those with sensitive teeth and gums – both cost £99.
