White teeth

08/11/2019

Teeth are white, however over time can become quite the opposite. Teeth with age can naturally turn brown and yellow, which can be unsightly. Practices such as coffee drinking, and smoking can also affect this further, which is why many people will now opt for teeth whitening. If you are looking for any cosmetic dentistry or improvements to your smile, then do not hesitate to contact us.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening may be a treatment that you are considering if your teeth are stained or somehow not the colour that you want. Teeth whitening is widely available and extremely safe, so you don’t have to worry about risks while undergoing the treatment. Another way to maintain white teeth, is to maintain a good dental hygiene routine, and cut back on drinking coffee and wine, and also to stop smoking. Smoking can also give you bad breath and shrink your gums, both of which you may find harmful to your image and appearance.

Smoking

While smoking has downsides cosmetically, it can also have some serious negatives in terms of your oral and general health. Smoking has been proven to contribute to mouth cancer, which can be extremely serious, claiming thousands of lives every year. If you are looking for a mouth cancer screening in Burnham, then we are the place that you are looking for as we have all the facilities available in order to carry out your screening. Smoking can also numb your senses over time, which can ironically make it harder to detect symptoms that may be the result of cancer.

Smoking is a serious detriment to your health, so we would urge all of our patients to quit, or severely reduce the amount they are smoking in order to maintain a good dental hygiene. It is our mission to provide the best possible service to all of our patients, and to make sure that they are as healthy as they can be, which means that we need cooperation on our patients’ side to maintain that standard of care. If you are a smoker, then we would also advise you to book a mouth cancer screening in Burnham, as by being a smoker you are immediately at risk of mouth cancer.

Other risks

Alcohol, combined with smoking, increases the risk of mouth cancer, so we advise that for a healthy routine, that you limit this as well. It is important to make sure that you are leading a healthy lifestyle too, as poor health choices, combined with smoking, add big risks to the likelihood of mouth cancer developing.

Before an appointment, it is a good idea to make a list, or even a mental note of everything that you do that is unhealthy or that would increase your risk of cancer. This includes any medication you might be taking, and anything else that would be useful before your screening. If you are looking for a mouth cancer screening in Burnham, then do not hesitate to contact us for further information.
