How teeth whitening got me out there again!
Leigh, Blaxton South Yorks
Thought you might like to hear why I had teeth whitening done and what I think of the whole business. For a start I didn’t really consider having my teeth whitened it was something suggested to me by a much younger person and it sort of took me by surprise.
I had been in a relationship with my girlfriend for two and a half years when out of the blue she wants to be single again and wants to live in London. I didn’t see it coming, on my life I didn’t see it coming. We had bought a place together a year previous and now she wants to up sticks and off to the big city. So we went through all the breaking up things of deciding who has what, including a dog. We had a German Shepherd as a pup nine months earlier and we couldn’t divide him up. We sold the flat which was a brand new build and was actually my dream home. I couldn’t afford to keep it on my own and didn’t fancy living there anymore anyway. Listen to me droning on about my break up!! Well it’s kind of relevant as I don’t think I would have made the changes I have made to myself without having gone through the break up. The apartment and all the things we had bought together were one thing but I was feeling pretty gutted as well. I carried on going into work everyday but to say I had the glums was an understatement. I’m an estate agent and am probably regarded as flamboyant and outgoing, but beneath all that I was feeling pretty low.
After a few weeks I had enough of feeling sorry for myself and so did my mates. So I started getting out and about again and settled down in my new place sharing with one of my mates. To say I was enjoying it was an understatement. I am thirty two and to be honest looking back no way was I ready to settle down and neither was Nadine obviously.
What I did learn was that I quite liked the point in my life I was at. However my niece who is seventeen gave me something to think about. I was at my sister’s place and chatting with my niece Rea. During some sort of conversation she announced I was “old fashioned with grey teeth and why didn’t I get them whitened”? Good question why didn’t I get them whitened?
I wasn’t too bothered about being called old fashioned by a seventeen year old, but grey teeth? What’s that all about? Anyway I started to look around to see if I could notice anyone who had teeth whitening. Went out on a Friday night and practically everyone I looked at seemed to have amazing teeth. Plenty of guys looked as if they had great teeth. Maybe they were naturally white. I decided to ask a group of girls what their thoughts were and two of the five girls had their teeth whitened. They had a good look at my teeth and in a very kind, girlie way, suggested I should have it done. One of the girls recommended Superstar-smiles. I had a look at their website and was very impressed.
I contacted a Doncaster teeth whitening technician called Shelly from the Superstar-smiles website, just out of curiosity really. She sounded very nice and it seems most people have this done now. They are fully mobile and come to your place to do the teeth whitening, and bring all the equipment with them. I decided to have it done along with my flatmate. It cost us £50 each with the two of us having it done.
I suppose we thought it was just a bit of a laugh really, but she turned up at our place with all the gear and we went along with it. It was all done properly. We filled in a form with our medical history and signed a consent form. I didn’t know much about it so Shelly explained exactly what would happen. My mate James went first as I am a self confessed coward as far as anything dental or medical is concerned. He just laid on the treatment table she brought along and she had also got our her laser equipment which she assured us is state of the art. James’s mouth was held open, the only time he has been lost for words. Then she started running a laser pen across his teeth, which were already pretty amazing I have to say. She put some gel on his teeth now and then and the treatment lasted about 40 minutes. Then she showed him his teeth in the mirror and we both burst out laughing as they were so white, and I mean really white. They probably glowed in the dark!! No, seriously they looked pretty cool. My turn next. Same treatment for me, and I couldn’t wait to look at the results. That’s the great thing about teeth whitening, you get immediate results. Well I looked in the mirror and it was great. White teeth. They looked pretty cool even though I do say so myself. I am a smoker so my results won’t last as long as James’s. But I don’t eat curry or drink red wine every evening like James, so it might kind of balance itself out.
So my dear niece had to eat her words when she saw my new teeth. it’s good. It makes me feel good. I would recommend it to anyone. Check out Superstar Smiles and give it a go. I’m still single and loving every minute of it. I dazzle everyone with my smile now. We had a stairlift put in recently for my grandad, great stairlift, we went for a secondhand stairlift to keep costs down.
The teeth whitening also looks good if you get a bit of a tan as well. James looks good with his teeth whitened. We have other mates who are thinking of having it done. Once you have it done there is no going back. You like the look and you just want to keep it. I won’t hesitate to have them done again. I think the results last from about 12 months to 14 months depending on whether you smoke or eat foods that stain your teeth.
She got to keep the German Shepherd. I miss him!
