With less than a week remaining until New Year’s Eve parties, is there anything South Shore residents can do if they have a less than stellar smile? The answer to that question is absolutely yes, if you can connect with your Quincy cosmetic dentist in time. The biggest concern many people have with their teeth is that they are yellow, brown, or just not white enough. Tooth whitening is the answer – and when you’re looking at a high profile event like a New Year’s Eve party, the results available from common OTC tooth whitening products just aren’t going to cut it.
The nice thing about having a cosmetic dentist do your tooth whitening is that the results are noticeable, fast, and even. Every person’s mouth is different. No two people have teeth that are the same shape, or that have the same type or degree of discoloration. Your Quincy dentist will first examine your teeth to determine the best route to giving you a brighter, whiter smile. Most tooth whitening treatments take less than an hour and are absolutely painless.
If you are nervous about having the dentist work on your teeth, you should know sedation dentistry is available. Sedation dentistry involves the use of medications to reduce the stress, anxiety or nervousness you may be feeling. It’s totally customizable, so you’ll be treated with the type and amount of medication that’s right for your individual situation. Before seeking sedation dentistry, it’s a good idea to talk with your medical doctor to make sure this type of treatment is appropriate for you; additionally, bring a complete list of any medications you take, including over the counter treatments and herbal supplements, to the dentist’s office with you.
New Year’s Eve marks the end of 2016, which was not the best year for a lot people. Greet 2017 with a bright, white smile that’s a sign of good things to come!
