We all want clean, healthy teeth but for many of us, a bright white smile is a wish list item that never really gets crossed off. Because even the best of brushers eventually have off-colored teeth. It’s just the daily wear and tear our teeth go through. Our diets and lifestyle choices can hinder our teeth being their whitest. You can brush & floss every day is great and very necessary, but your teeth won’t always keep its natural sheen. That doesn’t mean there’s no hope. There are plenty of ways to improve the color of your smile. Here are some of the more common options:
Kitchen items. You can always make your own toothpaste with a little hydrogen peroxide and baking soda at home. But did you know that strawberries and bananas can produce similar results? It’s true. So crush a couple of strawberries in a bit of baking soda or rub the peel over your teeth like a toothbrush and let those natural chemicals do the rest.
Whitening products.Over-the-counter options work by using the oxidizing agents to remove pigment on the surface of the enamel. The products are effective at removing surface stains but should be used in moderation to avoid overbleaching and wearing down tooth enamel.
In-office visits. We are proud to offer our patient ZOOM! whitening, a treatment that can either be applied by us, or customized so you can do it in the privacy of your home.
So, as you can see, there is no need to worry about dingy teeth. There is hope. Just ask your dental professional which whitening options will work best for you. And prepare for those smile compliments to roll in.

As a professional adult, we know that our outer appearances mean a lot to our day-to-day lives. It affects our careers, our personal lives and our overall self-esteem. But what if your smile is your personal issue? After all, a smile is the first thing a stranger sees when meeting you, so most adults feel that their smile is a very necessary focus when addressing their first impressions towards others. Our Wine N’ Smile event will give you the boost needed on the path to a perfect smile.
Thankfully, there are ways around fixing your crooked smile without anyone knowing. Invisalign is a discreet way to straighten your teeth without having to use traditional braces. With Invisalign, you will receive a series of treatments where clear plastic aligners are custom created for an individual patient. Each aligner is worm for a specific period of time, slowly and slightly correcting the patient’s bite. As the patient completes the specified time with each aligner, the teeth slowly shift into their proper position.
The aligners should be worn as often as possible – generally 20-22 hours each day. They can be removed while you eat, and when you brush your teeth, but are generally worn while awake and asleep. Because the aligners are removed while you eat, you’re free to eat virtually anything you’d normally eat – there are no concerns about getting food stuck in the wires of traditional braces. Nearly all bite issues can be corrected with Invisalign.
We know it’s important to be proud of the smile you have, and we would like to help you show it off. So, we have put together an event in order to introduce you to the program and answer any questions you may have while casually sipping a glass of wine. Make your reservations for our Wine N’ Smile event today!
