Hello and welcome to the final July edition of the Legacy Smiles blog!
We hope that you have been enjoying all that summer has to offer in the great state of Montana. Before the back-to-school routines take over your life, we’d love to see your smiling face in one of our dental chairs!
We are here to help you keep your smile looking great throughout your life. One effective strategy is to combine professional teeth whitening with your regular preventive maintenance.
As you know, dental cleanings and examinations should be an ongoing part of your oral hygiene routine. This will build on your good work at home (with a toothbrush, dental floss, mouthwash, etc.).
When you are here, we will examine you for any signs of trouble (like cavities, periodontal disease, cancer, and so forth).
Plus, we will be able to eradicate any lingering plaque or tartar buildup that you might have missed through our professional cleaning techniques.
Visiting us every 3-6 months is the key to keeping your mouth healthy and clean.
But we can take it further, if you want to get ahead of the game in terms of appearance.
You see, it’s normal for our teeth to become darker the older that we get. Beyond that, there are certain foods and beverages that are more likely to leave their marks. Red wine, coffee, tea, soda pop, and chocolate are just a few of the indulgences that can wear on our enamel. Smoking or using smokeless tobacco can also cause your teeth to become badly stained.
But, like we said, we can help turn things around with one of our professional whitening treatments. They are easy and effective. What’s more, they really work!
With Opalescence Boost, we have a powerful, professional whitening product that can remove layers of stains in a single visit to our office. In addition to its stain-removing ability, Opalescence Boost contains fluoride and potassium nitrate. These ingredients can strengthen your enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity, which can be a problem with other whitening products.
If you would rather do your teeth whitening at home, we also offer take-home trays that are custom molded to fit your teeth. You will need more time to see the results that you would see with our in-office treatment, but many patients prefer the convenience of doing their whitening on their time.
You Deserve It!
Like it or not, appearance matters. Having a great smile can help you succeed in both your career and personal life. Dr. Stuart loves helping patients just like YOU feel better about themselves by seeing the difference a beautiful smile can make.
Let us help you get the smile you desire with one or more of our comprehensive smile solutions. Between regular care, and a cosmetic touch-up now and again, you will be able to maintain the smile of your dreams.
