It’s almost that time of year. Wedding season. Hanging-out-by-the-pool season. Backyard-barbecue, family-reunion, and trips-to-the-beach season. However you plan to spend your summer, make sure your smile is as bright and beautiful as sunshine.
At Uptown Dental Associates, we have teeth whitening treatments that will take your pearly whites from drab to dazzling.
To schedule an appointment, call our office in Albuquerque, NM at 505-407-8781.
Don’t Waste Your Money on Drugstore Products
Drugstore shelves are filled with products that promise a brilliant white smile. Maybe you’ve even tried some of these yourself.
Don’t be fooled.
Over-the-counter whitening kids are not at all comparable to dentist-supervised professional treatments. For one thing, the gels and solutions they use contain a much lower concentration of active ingredient. Because they are less effective, you may be tempted to leave them on your teeth longer than advised. This can lead to pain and irritation.
Store-bought products are not customized for your mouth. Whitening trays will not fit perfectly, which means they may leach solution onto your sensitive gum tissue.
Discover the Benefits of Lumibrite
At Uptown Dental Associates, we use the Lumibrite take-home system, which delivers professional results but enables you to do the whitening at your convenience at home.
When you come in for your appointment, we will craft custom whitening trays from impressions of your mouth. This ensures they fit perfectly and will not leak gel onto your gums and other soft tissues.
You will go home with your trays, a supply of gel (available in mint and fruit flavors), and detailed instructions. Use as directed, and you will soon have a gleaming white smile.
Make Sure Your Teeth Stay White
We want you to get a gorgeous white smile — and keep it that way. That’s why we have a special offer that will help you maintain your results for life. Join our Lifetime Whitening Program. For just $149, we will supply you with whitening trays and your first supply of bleach.
After that, you just have to come to our office every six months for a cleaning and exam. At each visit, we will give you a supply of gel for free so you can keep your smile luminous.
There are also many other ways you can help maintain your results, including:
- Don’t smoke or use chewing tobacco.
- Practice excellent oral hygiene: brush at least twice a day and floss daily.
- Minimize your consumption of staining foods and beverages like soft drinks, coffee, tea, tomato sauce, beets, and berries. If you do eat or drink these things, rinse your mouth with water after.
- Avoid alcohol. Even white wine will roughen the surface of your teeth and make them more susceptible to staining.
- Drink lots of water. H2O helps rinse away food particles and bacteria and neutralize acids.
- Visit us regularly for professional cleanings.
