Every year on the
first Friday of October, we celebrate World Smile Day; a day devoted
to smiles and acts of kindness all over the world. This year marks 20 years
since this day was first celebrated.
A smile truly is a
gift we give to others; it instantly lifts our spirits and those around us. But
unfortunately, many people are not happy about the appearance of their teeth
and avoid smiling due to lack of self-confidence.
We love to help our
clients create more beautiful smiles, so each year as this day approaches,
Illume wishes to remind clients and the wider community how the practice can
help to make you feel fabulous by ensuring you have bright and shiny teeth.

“It’s amazing to see

about the appearance of their teeth. Smiling is one of the most admirable,
contagious acts, so get in touch so that we can help you become confident with
