Teeth fixing the perfect route to romance for women in their late 40s and 50s

London, Nov 18(ANI): A recent research has revealed that women in their late 40s and early 50s have been spending huge amounts of money on fixing their teeth in a bid to find new love.
The research, carried out by Mintel for the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, shows that Cosmetic dentistry is becoming popular among the women in late 40s and early 50s as they may see a perfect smile as the route to romance.
The study found that 27 per cent of people in the 45 to 54 age bracket have had cosmetic dentistry against just 20 per cent of 18 to 24-year-olds, reports the Daily Mail.
It also revealed that Britons seeking a new smile would prefer the more natural look of celebrities such as Kylie Minogue and George Clooney to the dazzling white "Hollywood" grins of the likes of Simon Cowell.
The academy's Dr James Goolnick said "People want a nice healthy smile that looks natural. They don't want people to say, 'Where did you get that done?'"
The survey of more than 2,000 Britons also found that almost a fifth are so concerned about the state of their teeth that they refuse to smile when photographed. (ANI)

5 Tips for Looking you Best at Any Age

1. Eat healthy foods. Smart eating choices and the right eating habits are an effective way to help make you feel and look your very best at any age. Choose foods that are rich in nutrients and vitamins.

2. Keep stress under control. It can creep up on you if you don't take daily measures to alleviate it, from yoga and meditation to something as simple as petting your dog or listening to music instead of the news.

3. Avoid smoking. Smoking can dehydrate your skin and can yellow your teeth.

4. Floss at least once a day. Flossing is important to the health of your teeth. If you don't floss, you put yourself at risk for tooth loss and gum disease.

5. Get some kind of exercise everyday - at least 30 minutes worth. The trick is to be creative. Try something different every time you exercise; power walk, jog, try Pilates. And remember, gyms are not only for treadmill running or weightlifting. They offer a huge array of different fitness classes - from boxing and yoga to dancer's stretch - taught by enthusiastic, serious experts. Consult your doctor before starting an exercise routine.

Crest Whitestrips Renewal Questions & Answers:

How does Crest Whitestrips Renewal work?
Crest Whitestrips Renewal are thin, flexible strips that are coated with a tooth whitening gel containing peroxide and are designed to conform to the shape of your teeth. It works by keeping the whitening gel on your teeth for 30 minutes at a time, long enough to get at stain build-up below tooth enamel to visibly whiten your teeth (visit whitestrips.com for more about the science of Crest Whitestrips Renewal)

Is Crest Whitestrips Renewal safe for my tooth enamel?
Yes, Crest Whitestrips Renewal contains peroxide, the same enamel-safe ingredient dentists use for tooth whitening. Extensive testing has shown the product to be safe when used as directed.

Will Crest Whitestrips Renewal affect my dental work?
Crest Whitestrips Renewal will only whiten natural teeth. It will not whiten caps, crowns, veneers, fillings or dentures. Whitestrips Renewal should not harm most dental work. Do not use with dental braces. If you have dental work or staining from medication, ask your dentist to determine if whitening is appropriate.

What about tooth sensitivity and gum discomfort?
Some people may experience tooth sensitivity or gum irritation when using whitening products - this is temporary and not harmful. If significant tooth sensitivity or gum discomfort develops, try using Crest Whitestrips Renewal only once per day rather than two times per day or stop for 2-3 days then resume once per day usage. If problem persists, discontinue using Crest Whitestrips Renewal.

Sometimes I see white spots on my teeth immediately after I remove a strip. Will they go away?
Yes, the white spots are temporary. These spots are not harmful and will go away in a few hours.


3 Easy Steps to a Beautiful, Younger-Looking Smile

1. Peel
2. Apply
3. Reveal your whiter smile

Use Crest Whitestrips Renewal on your upper and lower teeth twice a day for 30 minutes. It will take just 10 days to complete your kit.

* It is best if you do not brush your teeth immediately before applying strips
* Open foil pouch & remove product
* Peel Crest Whitestrips Renewal from backing liner as shown in diagram.
* Using a mirror, apply gel side of strip on front of teeth.
* Align with gumline & press gently for good contact.
* Fold the rest of strip behind teeth to keep in place.
* Wear strips 30 minutes, twice a day, remove & discard.
* After 10 days you will reveal your beautiful, younger-looking smile.

Discard backing liner and protective border material. It is normal for border material to be left behind on the backing liner after peeling off strip. The border material protects the strip until you are ready to use it.

Important Tips for Whiter Teeth

* You may find it easier to start with your upper teeth.
* Some people may find it easier to wear the upper and lower strips separately.
* You can also wear two strips back to back. Wear strip for 30 minutes then remove; rinse or wipe then apply a second strip.
