In a recent article reported In Preventative Dentistry, Britons are more interested in the colour of their teeth than real health issues such as cavities and receding gums.
A study by Mintel found that more than four in 10 Britons are concerned about the colour of their teeth, while only a quarter are interested in actual health.
Sunita Verma, Principal from Sparkle Dental Boutique Acton says `It’s a worry to read that people are more concerned about the colour of their teeth than real health issues such as cavities and gum disease and that as many people are associating a tan with good health, as they are associating white teeth with good oral hygiene, which is not the case.”
“When patients come to visit me, I carry out a thorough examination and make sure patients are aware of any dental health concerns. You only have one set of teeth as adults and its is so important to look after them.”
