[dropcap size=small]F[/dropcap]irst impressions are based on facial features – and a beautiful, spontaneous smile is one of the first steps in winning friends and influencing people. Not everyone is blessed with pearly whites that help them to smile with confidence, however.

But it’s now possible to correct gaps or teeth that are crooked, protruding, asymmetrical or misaligned without resorting to unsightly braces associated with adolescence. Correcting miscoloured teeth is also more fuss-free and expedient than ever before.

01: Form Factor

At aesthetic dental clinic Smile Inc, The Straight White Teeth procedure aims to produce straight, white teeth in a single procedure that takes one to three sessions. Each lasts no more than two hours. The technique involves the selective contouring and application of materials such as porcelain and resin to teeth, with the shape specially tailored to suit the individual’s smile profile and facial symmetry.

No surgery or extraction, or any use of braces, retainers or aligners is required, which means individuals are also free of hygiene problems associated with these methods. Best of all, since the teeth are not moved at all, there is no chance of them relapsing to their original positions. If the issue is discoloured teeth rather than misalignment, there are two types of teeth whitening treatments to freshen your smile.

02: A Clean Slate

The procedure that holds the gold standard in redefining your smile – having held the title of the most effective whitening method for the past 20 years – is Laser Teeth Whitening. After a single treatment, your teeth may be up to 15 shades whiter, without additional maintenance at home.

03: 5-minute Wonder

Another treatment that’s in fact a recent breakthrough is the 5 in 5 Teeth Whitening. It is so named because a five-minute application results in teeth that are up to five shades whiter. This is great for that quick fix before an important meeting or speech.

Having an attractive smile doesn’t get much easier. Indeed, it is a gift to yourself that keeps on giving.
