It’s that time of year again. Every time you turn around someone is pointing a camera at you and saying “Smile!”. This Christmas phenomenon is fine if you are happy with your smile but if you automatically clamp your lips together because your smile does not look as clean and white as you would like, why not do something about it!

Considering that 53% of people in one survey said they first noticed someone’s smile when meeting them for the first time and 89% of people feel that a great smile significantly enhances a person’s attractiveness, you are not out of line to want the nicest smile you can have.

Home kits are fine if you have a few weeks or even months to wait for results. If you want that bright smile NOW you need to see a professional, it’s time to visit your dentist!

Dr. Lathangue will assess your teeth and tell you what kind of whitening process will work best for you. For example, a zoom whitening treatment using Philps Zoom WhiteSpeed technology can make your smile up to 8 shades whiter in just one 45 minute office visit. Because the Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed has adjustable intensity settings 99% of patients experience little to no residual sensitivity after treatment.

In-office whitening done by a dental professional offers faster results than drugstore home-care systems because the whitening products used are professional strength and cannot be bought over-the-counter. Professional teeth whitening may be more expensive than home-use kits but the fast results will have you smiling at the camera on Christmas Day while you are opening your presents and pretending to be thrilled by the socks and PJ’s from Aunt Elaine.

Contact Dogwood Dental to make an appointment with Dr. Lathangue for your teeth whitening consultation.
