Your personal and professional life can improve with a beautifully bright set of teeth. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry indicates that the vast majority of people notice a smile before any other physical feature. Do you think your teeth and gums impact your personal and professional image? The team at Juno Beach Smiles does and offers many aesthetic dental treatments, including teeth whitening, to improve appearance and one’s outlook on life.
Would You Like to Smile Confidently?
With a whiter smile you can, say Dr. Duane Kuening and Dr. Greg Riley, Juno Beach dentists. Members of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and the Florida Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, these dentists are up to date on the techniques which improve the function and appearance of teeth and gums for patients of all ages.
One of the simplest and most effective cosmetic dental treatments they offer is professional teeth whitening. Using the Sapphire LIght Whitening method, the dentists improve the color of healthy, but stained, teeth by up to 11 shades in just about an hour. Patients testify to amazing results and increased self-confidence when smiling, laughing and talking in public.
What Stains Teeth
Simple time and wear and tear dull and yellow tooth enamel. In addition, darkly pigmented beverages, such as coffee, red wine, cola and black tea, penetrate tooth enamel and stain smiles. Foods such as blackberries, beets and curry do the same.
Why do teeth discolor? It’s because tooth enamel doesn’t look porous, but it is. It absorbs whatever you eat, including foods with a lot of pigment and acid. Even temperature extremes from iced tea or hot chocolate make teeth more easily discolored as the enamel actually expands and contracts.
Who Can Get Professional Whitening
Older teens and adults with healthy teeth and gums make good candidates for whitening at Juno Beach Smiles. People who brush and floss routinely at home and get exams and cleanings at Juno Beach Smiles semi-annually also qualify. Pregnant or lactating women should postpone teeth whitening or any elective dental procedures.
During a cosmetic smile analysis, Dr. Keuning or Dr. RIley performs a comprehensive oral exam to ensure teeth are healthy enough for whitening–that is, no gum disease, decay or extensive restorations such as fillings.
Sapphire Light Whitening
At Juno Beach Smiles, the team offers Sapphire Light Whitening, an in-office treatment which uses concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel activated by special light. The patient relaxes in the dental chair while the gel penetrates tooth enamel. After an hour, the gel is rinsed off. Teeth are brighter by up to 11 shades of color. And, there’s no gum or teeth sensitivity common to other professional whitening methods or over the counter strips.
Teeth whitening lasts indefinitely with good dental hygiene, check-ups at Juno Beach Smiles and occasional touch-ups at home. Best of all, patients enjoy great looks they love to show off.
