The path from suspicion to spreading the word

A patient testimonial about her professional teeth whitening treatment.

I am naturally a suspicious person. I don’t really believe in miracle products and, by extension, anything that claims to give someone an amazing look in a short period of time. I used to believe that the before and after pictures of all sorts of topics I that saw on Instagram either didn’t tell the whole story or were using Photoshop (at least a tiny bit). When something seems too good to be true, it usually is. I am very much into creams, beauty treatments, healthy food and (I am trying on this one) exercise. I don’t follow trends; I would say I am more into having a natural look.

I had braces when I was a teenager and everybody around me has always said that I have a very nice smile. With that in mind, I never thought there was anything I could do to improve it. That changed when I met my former boss. She had the most amazing, sparkling white smile that I had ever seen. For months, I kept looking at her smile wondering if her teeth were naturally so white or if she had had some treatment. One day, when I believed we were close enough that she would feel comfortable answering, I dared to ask her: why are your teeth so white? (Such a subtle way of asking, I know…!)

“I whitened my teeth some time ago”, she replied. I was like: Oh ok, how does it work? Is it expensive? And a thousand questions more. She patiently replied and that was the end of the story for a year or so. I never researched the company online or felt any interest to check if what she was saying was true. I trusted her and above all, I could see the results. Seeing is believing.

From that moment, I started to realise what a difference white teeth make to ones appearance. I have very pale skin. I find my skin colour dull, and I used to think white teeth weren’t going to significantly change my appearance. In my mind there wasn’t too much contrast between light skin with white teeth and light skin with not so white teeth. Oh boy, was I wrong! It became obvious to me when I saw a singer and actress that I like on TV after they had their teeth whitened.

The idea of having it done at some point in my life started to hit me. I had an event coming up and eventually I decided to go for it. I talked to my boss, who talked to her husband, who talked me through the process. It all happened in a very short space of time. I had my trays done and started the treatment. I am one of those people who does things thoughtfully, so I didn’t miss a session and had the trays on for at least 8 hours each night. I started to notice the difference after a week, and I still had another week to go. When I finished the treatment, I was happy but not overly impressed. I thought my results were good, but I was expecting to be wowed – I didn’t see it. Either way, I could see the improvement and I was grateful for that.

It has become the norm for me, but people constantly talk to me about how beautiful my smile is

A few weeks later I saw my mum for the first time in a while. The first thing she said when she saw me was: “Your teeth are so white, you look amazing, what a big difference! You have a perfect smile”. I looked at her and answered: really? I can see they are white but not as much as I wanted them to be. The same thing was repeated many times with friends and family that hadn’t seen me for a while. I started to wonder if I was blind. In fact, I was!

The event took place and a photographer took some photos of me. When I saw the photos, the first thing that my eyes spotted were my teeth. They were incredibly white and stood out like a shining star over my pale skin. I was so pleased! Then I had a look at some old photos and could see the difference even further.

It has been a few years now and with a couple of top ups a year, my teeth continue to look amazing. It has become the norm for me, but people constantly talk to me about how beautiful my smile is. Many of my friends and family members have whitened their teeth after seeing the positive affects the treatments have had on me.

The process was easy, and although I experienced some sensitivity, it was something I managed quite well. The Tooth Serum I used helped a lot. When I finished the treatment I started using EvoWhite, which I love. I always hated the flavour of toothpastes, I found them unpleasant, until I started using EvoWhite. My enamel is quite thin and I recently had an issue with one of my teeth. It had a crack and every time I brushed my teeth I experienced a painful feeling of sensitivity. I started using the Tooth Serum and it has now gone away for good!

I have met many people that have only whitened their teeth after seeing mine

I have met many people that have only whitened their teeth after seeing mine, probably because they felt the same way I did. So all I want to say is: teeth whitening makes a difference. If you want to give it a go, put yourself in professional hands and try it. There are no other ways to find out what it can do for you. Think about this: a dentist wouldn’t put their reputation at risk for a product that doesn’t work. It sounds simple, but it’s true!
