How to Achieve a Love Island Smile

Love Island Smile

Love Island is back on our screens and alongside the drama and romance, many viewers are noticing the dazzling smiles of the islanders. Their perfect teeth are inspiring countless fans to consider how they can achieve a similar look.

If you’re thinking about getting work done to achieve that perfect smile this summer, we’re here to reveal the best procedures available. We’ll also discuss why you might want to think twice before heading abroad for your treatments.

Straightening and whitening

One of the most effective ways to achieve a Love Island-worthy smile is through straightening and whitening treatments. Straightening your teeth can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile, making it more uniform and aesthetically pleasing.

Invisalign is a modern and discrete approach to teeth straightening and a popular choice because it uses invisible, comfortable and removable teeth aligners that fit into your lifestyle. Our dentists have undergone specialised training and are accredited providers of Invisalign.

Whitening, on the other hand, can brighten your smile by several shades, removing stains and discoloration caused by food, drinks, and lifestyle habits. Professional whitening treatments provided by a dentist are far more effective and longer lasting than over-the-counter products. These treatments use stronger whitening agents and ensure that your teeth are whitened evenly and safely.

We offer Enlighten whitening, one of the most effective whitening systems that can help you achieve a Vita B1 shade. This combined treatment involves a custom tray moulded precisely to your teeth and mouth shape, that is worn nightly for two weeks before a follow up with the dentist. We also offer Pola Light whitening, which involves us giving you a takeaway LED mouthpiece and whitening formula for even faster results.

Veneers and bonding

If you’re looking for a fast solution to achieve a flawless smile, veneers or composite bonding might be the perfect options for you. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin that are custom-made to fit over the front surface of your teeth. They can correct a variety of dental imperfections, including gaps, chips, and discoloration. Veneers are highly durable and can last for many years with proper care.

Composite bonding is a less invasive alternative to veneers. This procedure involves applying a tooth-coloured resin to the surface of the teeth, which is then shaped and polished to improve their appearance. Bonding can be used to repair chips, close gaps, and even change the shape of your teeth. While not as long-lasting as veneers, bonding is a more affordable option and can still provide excellent results.

The dangers of going abroad for cosmetic dental work

In recent years, many people have chosen to travel abroad for dental treatments, especially to countries like Turkey. One of the primary concerns with getting dental treatments abroad is the lack of regulation and standards.

The qualifications of dentists and the quality of materials used may not meet the stringent standards set by regulatory bodies in the UK. This can lead to subpar results, infections, and other complications that may require corrective treatments once you return home.

Another significant issue is the lack of continuity of care. Follow-up appointments and aftercare are crucial for the success of any dental procedure. When you get your treatment abroad, it can become costly and inconvenient to arrange follow-up appointments if complications arise.
