With a name like Smile Studio, you can be sure that this won’t be your average dreaded dentist appointment. The deal starts off with a mandatory consult with one of the practice’s friendly dentists with a sparkling smile. During this session, the dentist checks on the teeth, asking them about their well-being and just finding out general stuff like how things are at home. As a bonus, teeth are cleaned and the dentist analyses whether the patient is a suitable candidate for whitening, or rather whether the patient’s teeth are appropriate candidates. Though the specialists at Cape Town Smile Studio specialise in a lot of things, body whitening is certainly not one of them.
Should the dental expert give you the ay-okay, you can return for a second meeting where the actual whitening takes place. The specialists at Cape Town Smile Studio pride themselves on the fact that they don’t use bleach for whitening, but rather the highest quality porcelain. Dentists recommend that teeth be handled with care for the first couple of days and not be exposed to hard foods, acidic beverages or passers-by as they can be blinded by the mirror effect of the sparkling new teeth. Sometimes teeth require a second coating. This is entirely up to the dentist’s discretion, so while you might enjoy the taste of porcelain or the idle dentist chatter, if the dentist says no, you’ll have to find another reason to come back.
Smile fact: In an office in Berlin, 10 past 4 in the afternoon is smile time. For twenty minutes, employees have to practice smiling. Through the use of role play and video clips, employees are taught how to smile in different scenarios. These include theyou-are-wrong-but-I-won’t-say-it smile, the smile-like-I-care smile and the you-are-dead-to-me smile (only to be used on the tax man).
