It’s Here! Teeth Whitening In Only 20 Minutes!

Now you can have the bright smile you’ve always wanted in our office – in only 20 minutes!

We would like to introduce you to our new teeth whitening technology. Sinsational Smile uses a patented pre-filled silicone tray filled with an exclusively formulated whitening gel in conjunction with LED light technology to give you a smile that is so bright it’s sinful!

Most people are good candidates for teeth whitening and do see substantial improvements in the color of their teeth. The procedure is safe, effective, comfortable and affordable. Having your teeth whitened immediately following a professional dental cleaning produces the most dramatic results. We are offering this procedure for only $99.00 per treatment. You will enjoy the most dramatic results when done in conjunction with your cleaning. You will also receive a take-home maintenance kit with a touch up pen to further extend your new brighter smile.

The number of treatments necessary to reach your desired result will vary by the patient. Though most people will notice a big difference after only 1 treatment, additional treatments may be necessary to achieve the result you desire. Patients who regularly use tobacco, drink coffee, tea and red wine and take certain medications may require more treatments. To find out if you are a good candidate, ask Dr. Glass or Cindie at your next visit, or call our office today!

Braces Aren’t Just For Kids!

You’re never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment. Today, adults make up about one in every 5 orthodontic patients.  Orthodontic treatment is not just for looking good. While it can help correct crooked teeth or spaces you’ve been self-conscious about for years; leaving misaligned teeth untreated can lead to other dental problems including abnormal wearing of tooth surfaces and a misaligned bite can cause problems with your TMJ.

Most adults are candidates for orthodontic treatment. Healthy teeth can be moved at any age, and many times adults have a need for only limited orthodontics, making their total treatment time much shorter.

I recently approached Dr. Glass about correcting the alignment of my two front teeth. While they weren’t horribly crooked, they were noticeable to me, particularly in pictures and it made me self-conscious. I felt like the problem might be too minor to address at all, but after consultation with Dr. Glass, I learned that my teeth were moderately rotated and my bite was also off.  Even though my teeth could have been cosmetically straightened with veneers, the better course of treatment was limited orthodontics on my front 6 teeth, correcting my bite and turning my teeth.  I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly my teeth began to move, and symptoms of TMD (Temproal Mandibular Joint Disorder) that I had learned to ignore were disappearing. Dr. Glass adjusted my braces every couple of weeks, and I would experience some pressure and discomfort, but never anything that wasn’t easily managed with ibuprofen. After 3 short months my braces came off and I was fitted with a permanent retainer. I couldn’t be happier with the results and my new smile was well worth three months of braces! I have since learned that left untreated, my joint disorder would have only continued to get worse causing me a lifetime of problems and pain.

If you have any questions or concerns about the alignment of your teeth and would like to know if orthodontics would be an option for you, come by for a free consultation with Dr. Glass.
