Zoom! Whitening

The color of your teeth can affect the confidence you have about your smile. Although it is not permanent, tooth whitening (bleaching) is a simple dental treatment used to change the color of your teeth.

Some needs for tooth whitening may include:

    • Fluorosis
    • Normal ware of outer-tooth layer
    • Stained teeth

Thanks to advances in modern technology, we can perform fast and effective whitening treatment right here in our office. Within one visit, your teeth can be shades whiter and you can have a brilliant and brighter smile.

Touch-ups may be needed every several years when receiving whitening treatment. They may be needed more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea or wine. Whitening is non-evasive and ideal when enhancing the beauty of your smile.
How do I know I need an X-ray?

The frequency and need for X-rays are based on medical and dental history, a dental exam, signs and symptoms, your age, and risk of disease. Although a full X-ray of your top and bottom teeth are taken once or twice a year, new X-rays may be needed if any dental problems arise. If you are experiencing any difficulties or pain, we highly recommend that you arrange an appointment with your dentist promptly.

Dental X-rays may reveal:

    • Abscesses or cysts
    • Bone loss
    • Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors
    • Decay between the teeth
    • Developmental abnormalities
    • Poor tooth and root positions
    • Problems inside a tooth or below the gum line

The above conditions can prove to be extremely detrimental to your comfort and overall health. By following your doctor’s recommendations, you can prevent these unnecessary discomforts as well as avoid the cost of repairing progressive dental problems.
