Teeth Whitening Procedures Teeth whitening can be achieved by using several procedures without using any artificial means. Depending on the discoloration of you teeth, a qualified dentist might decide on certain procedure that might suit your teeth and bring out the best whitening result. A dentist might choose any one of the following treatments on you for achieving sparkling white teeth: • A laser teeth whitening might be used to heat and whiten your teeth in a short time after using a very high peroxide gel concentration gel and after applying it to the teeth. Note: This is not a common procedure and is expensive. • The least expensive method that a dentist might choose is using the plastic trays that are custom made using models of your teeth. Subsequently, a home bleaching treatment is followed. Home bleaching takes about two weeks. Results vary depending on initial level of staining and type of staining of your teeth. • The dentist might also recommend The Zoom3! Professional Teeth Whitening treatment. This consists of a gentle hydrogen-peroxide whitening gel activated by a special, patented light operating in the gentle blue spectrum. It cost around $ 1500. To remove the discoloration in the surface layer of the enamel micro-abrasion is used. To remove the outer surface of the tooth enamel a paste made of acid and an abrasive is used.
I looked at this girl sitting on the other side of the conference table and marveled at how well she had handled the interview. She responded quickly and positively to every question or comment thrown at her. At times she countered with the skill of a humourist to some of the statements.
“Are you very nervous, or is this your normal personality?” I asked after another clever interjection by her.
“I try to be happy all the time,” Mouse answered and I thought that it would be refreshing to have that attitude in the office.
At the end of the interview she said to me, “I am Anorexic.”
“So what,” I thought. Little did I know what I was letting myself in for when I confirmed her appointment three days later.
Never had I experienced such a diligent and tireless worker as was Mouse in the office. Within a month she had taken over the complete administration of our office, including my diary and Petty Cash. It was just after her birthday, she was 25, when she confided in me that her accommodation was not ideal and could she rent a room from me in the house. Naturally I agreed and she moved in, with the understanding that we would not get in each other’s way and would live separate lives after hours.
The arrangement worked well for about two weeks then I noticed that she was not eating. Although there was ample food in the house she would not prepare anything for herself. When I casually remarked on it, she told me that she did not know how to cook; hence she only ate apples and drank tea. Alarm Bells; I started researching Anorexia on the internet. Imagine my shock and concern when I realized that anorexia is not just a fad or weight loss programme. I asked her about her support from her family and I was told that they did not support her at all and her illness was an embarrassment to them. Okay, now the choice was mine – send her back to the toilet and shower that she was living in before or try to help and support her. It would be no hardship to feed her as I was in any case preparing food for myself. After discussing her preference for food I became pretty much a vegetarian, which I did not mind in the least and I set about providing for both of us.
All went well, although she ate a miniscule amount of food, hence the name of “Mouse”, for about a month and then she started finding excuses not to eat. This deepened my research as I could see that when I broached the subject of her lack of nourishment she became very distressed. That was when I realized that I had embarked on a mammoth task.
First off I had to learn a whole new way of speaking and NEVER use certain words or phrases for fear of sending Mouse on a raging path of self-destruction. I was now beginning to understand the reason for her diligence in the office. A trait of an anorexic is the ability to develop high standards, values and ideals. The slightest deviation from that self-determined level of perfection would totally unbalance Mouse and needed care and patience to bring her back to an acceptable level of functionality. One of the first lessons I learned from my research was to listen carefully and absorb everything she told me about her mental and physical experience of anorexia.
When Mouse was 16 or 17 she already had Anorexia, but only went to hospital when she was about to die. Apparently the doctors at the hospital only expected her to live for a few days when she was admitted. Her treatment was, from what I am told, a little archaic. She was put on drips and fed copious amounts of food for three weeks and released. The early days of her Anorexia are a bit vague and I will not delve into them, as nobody talks about it. I will also not express my opinion on the reason for her illness as all I know is hearsay.
