Zoom in for Whiter Teeth for the Holidays

Natural tooth color can be altered by any number of things. Teeth can be stained by tobacco, foods and beverages such as tea and berries, and by deposits of calculus or tartar. Teeth can also be discolored internally through the effects of aging, injury and certain illnesses. The result can be a yellowish, dingy-looking smile. Severe staining can even occur as a result of taking tetracycline during childhood.

A generation ago, only people in the public eye had “movie star” smiles, but all that has changed. Today, the procedure is quite easy, inexpensive and within the budget of most working people.

The most commonly used procedure is called bleaching. This can be done either in the dentist’s office (chair side bleaching like Zoom), or after an initial office visit, at home by the patient (night bleaching). For most patients a combination of both procedures is recommended for optimal results.

In either approach, a bleaching agent is carefully applied to the teeth (at home, the patient uses a custom fitted mouth guard) until the teeth achieve the desired amount of whiteness. Teeth whitening doesn’t remove any of the tooth’s structure and even teeth that have had root canals can be easily whitened.

I’ve researched various options and of course, as a dentist, many companies try to engage me in offering their products. But the one I feel is not only the safest, but the most effective and beneficial to my patients is the Zoom!™ Teeth Whitening System. The process is painless and occurs in one visit, generally in less than 90 minutes. Teeth appear six to ten shades whiter (and sometimes more), and patients notice the results instantly. Even if you have highly sensitive teeth, ask me about products that are formulated to minimize sensitivity so you, too, can enjoy the benefits of a whiter brighter smile.

A bright, gleaming smile can go a long way to improve your appearance. The results can be dazzling! As always, happiness is spread with a smile, make yours one you are proud to share! Patients who have Zoom! are so astounded by their instant and noticeable results that they can’t resist admiring their smile in their car’s rear view mirror after they leave the office.

6 Month Smiles – The New Clear Way To Straighten Your Teeth

If Six Month Smiles may be your solution for crooked teeth. Schedule your free evaluation appointment now to see if you are a candidate.

If your smile is lacking the sparkle and wow that you desire you should consider looking into having a treatment of 6 month smiles. 6 month smiles is a treatment where your teeth can be corrected quickly and effectively. The main advantage of 6 month smiles is that the whole process can be undertaken in less than a year.

“6 Month Smiles” is as a new form of braces treatment. The braces are made of clear aligners that are placed over the top of your teeth to cap them. A small amount of nickel titanium wires are also placed into the aligners to straighten the teeth. A small amount of pressure is placed upon your teeth to allow them to be straightened. The pressure is not too much, thus causing you minimal discomfort.

Another advantage of 6 month smiles is that they can be worn without being seen, this is a major plus as there is no embarrassment when wearing them. The braces can be clear or made to look the natural colour of your teeth. As a result of them being barely visible when you speak or show off your teeth when smiling your peers will not be able to recognise that you are wearing braces, unlike conventional braces of the past where the wires and brackets often looked very unsightly.

6 month smiles also work a lot faster than other methods such as traditional braces and Invisalign. This is because unlike other types of braces, 6 Month Smiles works with the cosmetic appearance of your teeth in mind. This is a main advantage for people who do have a correct bite that doesn’t need to be corrected but the fact of crowded and crooked teeth need to be.

The braces system will correct your teeth within a period of 6 months, but after this has been completed you will be advised to wear some form of retainer just to keep the teeth in place and avoid further movement. This is important so that your teeth will keep from moving backwards.

6 Month Smiles is the best and most effective braces treatment out there aimed at straightening your teeth. These braces work with less pressure to effectively move your teeth so that they can be an optimum position so that you can be proud of your smile.
