There are few things that make a bigger impression than your smile. It is remarkable how much a person’s smile affects his or her social life and overall self-esteem.
Did you know that a bright smile is often perceived to be a healthy smile? To this end, many people seek to achieve this brighter appearance through teeth-whitening, which is a cosmetic process that lightens the discoloration of enamel and dentin.
Many dentists consider teeth-whitening to be the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. Indeed, under the proper supervision of competent dentists like Dr. Dano and Dr. Thakrar, whitening is perfectly safe.
Teeth-whitening is a great option for just about anyone. Patients with reasonable expectations enjoy the results. Obviously, whitening doesn’t affect synthetic materials, such as bonding or fillings; although in some cases, it can improve the junction of a filling and the tooth structure.
The effects of teeth-whitening are very striking for our patients in the summertime: Imagine the contrast of whiter teeth and a tan body! Wow! This stark contrast helps to give you something akin to the “California whiteness” effect that you’ve seen on TV.
Your compassionate dentists, Dr. Dano and Dr. Thakrar, can determine if you’re a candidate for teeth-whitening with an oral exam and a shade assessment. Call (815) 322-7678 today to schedule your appointment!
