Healthy white teeth absolutely add to person’s overall beauty and self-confidence. Going to the dentist for regular check-ups is the best way to keep that beautiful smile, but for many people, regular trips to the dentist are impossible because of time and many constraints. There is also he fact that many people simply are afraid of the dentist, traumatized by childhood visits and going under the drill.
“Someone , too busy to take care of the teeth is like a mechanic who is too busy to take care of the tools”. Despite these words of wisdom, many people still do not make regular visits to the dentist.
Most people develop dentophobia because of traumatic childhood experiences associated with visits to the dentist, simply from hearing the dentist “horror” stories of family and friends. For many people it has become a firmly ingrained belief that a visit to the dentist means a painful, horrible dental procedure.
But dental spas are challenging these notions by providing the ultimate comfortable dental experience.
Massage is an important part of the dental spa movement, because it can reduce anxiety and stress, and slow the heart rate. When the heart rate is slowed, that means the patient is relaxed. massage also relieves muscle soreness associated with long dental procedures. Dentist say that relaxed patients will make the anaesthesia work better and the procedure move more quickly. In addition, aromatherapy can enhance the immune response and can ever alter brainwaves to induce relaxation.
Dental spas go beyond traditional dentistry, and can include cosmetic dentistry to create a more beautiful and natural-looking smile. Teeth whitening and attaching porcelain veneers are the most common aesthetic dental procedures. if you have yellowish stains on your teeth due to excessive intake of coffee or tobacco, then you should apply teeth whitening methods, and one of the methods is ‘office bleaching’. This method uses gel and will be accelerated with a lasers. Within 45 minutes, your teeth will become whiter. The patients can also try “home bleaching”, which involves wearing a fitted mouthpiece overnight that is filled with the bleaching agent.
Another popular cosmetic treatment is the attachment of porcelain veneers. You may have heard the term “veneer” in conjunction with wood working, and the two share the same technique. The process for cosmetic dental applications is much the same. For each individual tooth, very thin covers are specially handcrafted in a laboratory to fit your teeth. Porcelain veneers may be a bit on the expensive side, but your bright smile will last from 10 to 15 years. And as they say ; Smile, and the world smiles with you….
