Leo Tolstoy wrote, “It seems to me that what we call beauty in a face lies in the smile.” All smiles are beautiful. Smiles with crooked teeth are beautiful. Smiles with missing teeth are beautiful. Shy smiles are beautiful. Bold smiles are beautiful. Smiles are more than appearance, they reveal emotion and intention. Some people who have the most beautiful smiles are insecure about their smile’s appearance and try to hide it. While it’s important to remember that ALL smiles are perfect in their imperfections, there are ways to find confidence.
I recently paid Becky Chrestman of Sunlimited Tanning and Day Spa a visit for my own smile. For those of you that don’t know, Sunlimited offers a teeth whitening service.
“We use the BleachBright Teeth Whitening system which guarantees clients will be 2 to 8 shades whiter in just 15-20 minutes with little to no sensitivity,” Becky says. “We start by color matching each client’s teeth to a Professional Tooth Whitening Shade Guide and take before pics so that we can show and compare the final results. We use pre-filled gel trays that the client places in their mouth and then our special blue LED light activates the carbamide peroxide to penetrate the dentin and bleach stains.”
Teeth whitening has come a long way since the beginning. Gone are the days when teeth whiteners stripped away your enamel and made your teeth brittle.
“A lot of people are worried that it will make their teeth sensitive. We specifically chose the BleachBright system because it includes a desensitizing agent/nerve blocker, potassium nitrate, in all their gel products to help alleviate any sensitivity,” Becky explains. “We also include the BluMinerals sealant treatment immediately following each teeth whitening session. This helps soothe any sensitivity and protects your teeth whitening investment by sealing the enamel. It also includes sodium fluoride to help strengthen the enamel.”
This session only takes around 45 minutes, and Sunlimited’s price of $129 is significantly lower than the national average price of $650 for teeth whitening at a dentist’s office.
“Almost anyone can enjoy the benefits of BleachBright! if you are an adult with healthy teeth and gums wanting a brighter and whiter smile, you can benefit from using the BleachBright products. However, it will not work on any false teeth or veneers,” Becky says.
I am so happy with my smile and proud to show it off. If you feel like you could be more confident in your smile, call Becky Chrestman at the Sunlimited’s West Little Rock location (501) 502-2974 or at the Riverdale location (501) 381-5598, or find more information on the Sumlimited website.
