Misconceptions About Dental Implants

It’s a sad thing when people judge others by their appearance. When you meet someone, what do you notice first? Their smile, most likely. Then you start to talk with them and find out what they’re all about.

You’re probably not so shallow that you wouldn’t want to have anything to do with someone whose teeth were yellowed, but you’d be surprised at how many people really do judge people on something like that. They’re put off by a discolored smile.

What Can You Do?

Of course if you’re worried about being judged because of a yellow smile, the best thing you can do is work to improve it. You can have a better smile with whitening treatments. Most likely, you’ve seen TV ads for whitening products, and you’ve seen whitening products in supermarkets and pharmacies. Some of them work. Some don’t. Some can even harm your tooth enamel.

At Port Washington Dental Care, Dr. Katechis can help you to whiten your teeth with treatments that typically take less than an hour, and are non-invasive. It’s a simple matter of putting a special whitening gel in a tray, which is then placed in your mouth. It’s not uncomfortable, and the gel has a pleasing taste. With professional whitening, you’ll see an improvement of several shades in very little time.

Of course you don’t want to take chances with your teeth, and you’re much better off with professional whitening than you are with over-the counter whitening kits. You want to consult a dentist like Dr. Tassos Katechis, who has access to whitening treatments that work much better than the over-the-counter solutions. You can count on Dr. Katechis to never recommend anything that will harm your teeth.

Why You Should Whiten Your Teeth

You enjoy life. You love to drink coffee, tea, and red wine. Perhaps you smoke – we wish you wouldn’t, but we’re not here to judge. The point we’re trying to make is that all those things you love can be very hard on your teeth. They can stain your teeth, and conventional toothpastes won’t help to remove the staining. Even professional cleanings, although helpful, won’t deliver the results you want.

In-Office and at Home Whitening

At Port Washington Dental Care, Dr. Katechis can provide you with professional cleaning solutions that will remove the stains that accumulate on your teeth through the simple joys of living. You can have your teeth brightened and whitened in-office, and even be provided with treatments that you can take home that will provide varying levels of whiteness. Of course in order to maintain the full brilliance of your newly whitened teeth we suggest that you come back and see us for in-office whitening from time to time.
