Happy New Year. We hope you had a happy and healthy holiday season, and we hope more happy, healthy days are heading your way in 2017. We also want to help with professional dental cleanings and teeth whitening.
These services are staples of general and cosmetic dentistry, and you can get them both at the office of Dr. Tab A. Boyle. Our dentist office is located in Lancaster, CA, but our patients come from all over the surrounding area.
We welcome you and your family to visit us a couple times this year. Our team of dental professionals will work with you to keep your teeth looking their best.
Now would be a good time to schedule an appointment. Call 661-524-8457 or contact us online to plan your visit.
Start With A Dental Cleaning
Regular professional dental cleaning is a great idea for anyone who wants to keep his or her mouth healthy.
You should be brushing your teeth (twice a day for two minutes each time) and flossing between your teeth and gums (every day). But we are all human. Maybe you are have missed a spot or didn’t clean it as well as you could have.
With a professional dental cleaning, a member of our team will remove any plaque or tartar buildup that may have developed. By having a cleaning at our dentist office in Lancaster, CA, you are reducing your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
As part of your visit, we also will be examining your mouth for signs of cavities or gum disease. While we would prefer to find nothing, the next best option is to find those problems while they are still in the early stages.
This is when treatment is most effective and the least invasive.
If you haven’t scheduled your next cleaning yet, call 661-524-8457 today to do so.
Follow It With Teeth Whitening
Your professional cleaning includes polishing your teeth. This can remove surface stains, which can improve your smile.
But that’s not going to remove the deeper stains. That’s not going to undo year or decades of morning coffees and afternoon teas. It’s not going to remove the effects of eating delicious but colorful sauces and desserts.
To remove those stains, you have to go deeper. To go deeper, you need the help of professional teeth whitening.
You can try the commercial whitening products that you will find next to the toothpaste, but the benefits of using these are limited. Your teeth can get a little whiter, but it won’t be anything like what you will see with professional whitening at Dr. Boyle’s office.
Professional teeth whitening products have a higher concentration of bleaching agents. This is why you should only get them and use them under the supervision of a dental professional.
When used correctly, you can see amazing improvements in the color of your smile in a short period of time.
For the fastest results, we recommend our in-office whitening. Believe it or not, you can make your teeth several shades whiter in a single visit to our Lancaster, CA, dentist office.
If you prefer to do your teeth whitening on your own schedule, we also offer at-home whitening products. This won’t work as quickly as our in-office treatment, but the final results are pretty comparable when all is said and done.
Get Cleaned, Then Get Whitened
By combining dental cleanings and teeth whitening, you are getting the most out of both services.
Teeth can be clean and healthy but still look yellow or stained. By removing the surface stains, you are making it easier for teeth whitening products to get deeper into your enamel to remove the deeper stains.
When your stains have been removed, the color of your teeth will better reflect the health of your mouth, too.
The Benefits Of A Clean, White Smile
The benefits of a clean mouth may be obvious, but we’ll spell them out anyway. Tooth decay can lead to cavities, which can lead to bigger problems such as infected teeth and lost teeth.
Likewise, the initial stages of gum disease can lead to periodontitis (advanced gum disease). If left untreated, this too can lead to tooth loss.
Keeping your mouth clean will reduce the likelihood that you will need restorative dental care in the future.
By whitening your teeth, you also may be making a better first impression. Surveys have shown that people with nice smiles are considered more successful, trustworthy, and friendly than people with “bad” teeth.
