Smart dead people once had a theory that a smile can solve conflict. However, when put to the test in school yard brawls and Afro-American gang street wars, smiles got crushed along with many noses and skulls. But several days ago researchers stumbled upon the answer: Teeth-whitening. Smile your way out of any tight situation with today’s Groupon – an Opalescence home-whitening treatment kit, dental examination and digital xrays from Melrose Medical and Dental Centre for R1400.
Melrose Medical and Dental Centre, in association with Opalescence, is brightening and whitening smiles all around Joburg with the Opalescence home-whitening kit. This handy kit is perfectly safe and with an examination session or two thrown into the deal, ‘home’ does not imply that you’re in this alone.
The first step in the process involves a dental examination where a mould of the teeth is made. Thereafter the patient is required to sleep with the mould in their mouth like a sleepwalking rugby player for best results or, if impossible to do, a couple of hours a day. If kept up for two weeks, professionals promise results that’ll make even the Mona Lisa show some teeth. The procedure also includes between one and six x-rays – dependant on the awesomeness of the teeth involved – documenting the whitening process.
Opalescence is a teeth-whitening procedure that’s been introduced in over 80 countries around the world, spreading white smiles since 1999. To ensure results, only accredited dentists are approved to administer any of the Opalescence treatments. If they keep this up, the world might soon see the ever-promised World Peace.
Toothsome fact: The first calculator was made in 1805 using donated human teeth. However they could produce no more than 32 since only one person, Sir Theo AKA ‘Big Plus’, had teeth big enough for the plus button. Sir Theo donated all his teeth in return for gift vouchers at the local butchery.
