appreciate the value of a smile. Smiles not only make you feel good,
they make others around you feel good too. Studies have shown that
people with pretty smiles who display them have greater likability and
hence are more successful. We can help you get a nicer, brighter and
more attractive smile.
Everyone can have whiter teeth.
What you have to find out is how to accomplish it. If you're
interested, we offer a complimentary smile analysis...just call and ask.
You can go on line or into pharmacy or supermarket and find things that
say they can whiten your teeth. Some can and some can't.
Whitening toothpastes do not work and may be bad for you. Most
whitening is done by a "peroxide" like substance. These are "oxidizing"
agents and with long-term use can expose sensitive tissues of the mouth
to unnecessary risk. Many of us take "anti-oxidants" to ward off
inflammation and diseases such as cancers. We take omega 3 oils,
vitamins and other supplements. Why would you purposely use an
oxidizing toothpaste in your mouth? I wouldn't.
the counter whiteners such as Crest Whitestrips can work. Prior to
using them, you should ask if there could be any problem with doing
this. If you have fillings, crowns, caps or veneers....or even recessed
gums and exposed roots, you could have a problem with such products.
You may not get the results you expect and you could have some unwanted,
negative effects. We want to help you avoid this.
you're a candidate for over the counter whitening, we'll tell you. You
can save a lot of money though you'll only get a slight improvement.
If you want really whiter teeth, you have other options.
In our office we offer 3 whitening systems. Each has advantages.
- Professional strength, home whitening. This, take home system is
much more effective than the over the counter systems. Our Venus system
is available for $100. It makes a great Gift.
- Laser Whitening. We use a diode laser to help speed up and activate a
whitening gel. This is done in the office and takes 60-90 minutes.
The cost is $950. With this system we also make trays that can be used
- Custom Home Whitening. We make specially
fitted soft trays from molds of your teeth. Depending on factors such
as lifestyle and sleep habits, we'll prescribe one of several whitening
gels for you to use with the custom trays. The cost of this very
effective system is only $550 and the trays can last for years if
properly cared for.
Your smile is the most important
feature of your face. Keeping it white, pleasant and young-looking is
one of the ways we help you help yourself look your best.
