Dental Confidence Or Caution

Whether you are one of the folks who goes willingly for your check-up, or are hesitant about getting dental work done, Premier Dental Esthetics in Arcadia wants to see you every six months to make sure you’ve got excellent oral health.

There is a direct connection between poor dental health and underlying, systemic conditions. To put it another way, a healthy mouth can help you maintain a healthy body.

Oral bacteria and inflammation may be associated with a host of health issues, from heart disease and endocarditis, to premature birth and low birth weights. Oral bacteria can spread from the mouth into the blood and cause serious, even life-threatening infection of the heart valves.

We aren’t trying to frighten anyone, but clearly your oral health is a  serious issue. It’s a good reason (maybe the best) to brush and floss daily (twice a day is better), and see us at Premier Dental Esthetic in Arcadia every six months for a cleaning and checkup. We provide family dentistry, along with teeth whitening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures. Schedule an appointment with us today.

How To Get The Whitest Teeth

Some people’s teeth are whiter than others, but it’s safe to say that most people want their teeth to be pearly white! If you are one of those people, then Premier Dental Esthetics in Arcadia has some tips to help you achieve that smile with professional teeth whitening.

Don’t Forget to Brush
The first tip seems like a no-brainer, but many individuals still miss this practice. We are talking about daily tooth brushing. Brushing your teeth with a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste is one of the best ways to keep your teeth clean and prevent tooth decay. Often our teeth become discolored or stained because of what we consume (drinks, food, etc.) but when we brush our teeth, it minimizes the damage.

After brushing teeth, another tip is using a fluoride rinse to finish the cleaning job. Fluoride helps get into the cracks where bacteria can be hiding away. When the bacteria is killed, it prevents it from spreading and discoloring your teeth. When you are shopping for a fluoride rinse, check the labels. Some ordinary mouthwashes don’t contain fluoride.

Sometimes the discoloration is too severe to be reversed by home remedies. That’s why we at Premier Dental Esthetics in Arcadia offers professional teeth whitening. We also offer family dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Affordable Teeth Whitening?

Affordable Pasadena Tooth Whitening

If you are like most web users, you have probably discovered the multitude of ads for ‘free teeth whitening kits’. Do they work? At Premier Dental Esthetics in Arcadia, we took a closer look.

Some of these ads show a ‘real South Temple City mom’ who discovered a ‘tooth whitening secret’. Others assure you that their system is the one that ‘Monrovia dentists don’t want you to know about’. Many contain a link to a page that contains a convincing tooth whitening testimonial. They bolster their legitimacy by aligning themselves with respected companies such as CNN, USA Today and Forbes.

Unfortunately, most of these are fraudulent. In a recent article, the Better Business Bureau explained:

The countless websites for various teeth whitening products claim to offer a no-risk, money back guarantee, free trial of the product. To sign up, customers must provide a credit or debit card number to cover shipping. Complainants to BBB state that they are billed before their trial ends and continue to be billed after they have told the company they want to cancel.

Complainants also may find mystery charges for other companies and services that they didn’t realize they were signing up for with their ‘free’ trial.

The BBB has received complaints about the following company/product names:

  • Dazzle White
  • White Smile
  • Teeth Smile
  • Dazzle Smile
  • Ivory White
  • Max White
  • My Whitening
  • Gleaming White Smile
  • Advanced Wellness Research

Don’t trust your smile to an Internet ad. Professional teeth whitening at Premier Dental Esthetics in Arcadia is the reliable place for safe teeth bleaching. Call us for advanced cosmetic dentistry and worry-free teeth whitening. We also provide family dentistry. Make an appointment today.

Any Effective Toothpaste? Teeth Whitening in Arcadia

porcelain veneers cost Pasadena

Are yellowing teeth getting you down? If so, you are not alone! Our Premier Dental Esthetics patients in Arcadia, along with millions of other Americans, have made teeth whitening one of the most popular procedures in cosmetic dentistry.

There are lots of over-the-counter dental products that promise to improve your smile. The grocery store of filled with them. Are any of them any good?

Whitening toothpastes work by adding chemical agents that can gently polish and whiten teeth. They only remove surface stains. This ordinarily results in whitening by roughly one shade.

Whitening strips are about as effective, with the added limitation of only working on the front of the teeth.

The professional-grade whitening products used at Premier Dental Esthetics can whiten your teeth up to eight shades. That is quite a difference!

Once you see the dramatic changes that can happen with in-office teeth whitening, you may wonder why you waited so long to have it done. Other cosmetic dentistry services from Premier Dental Esthetics in Arcadia include porcelain veneers and dental implants. We stress the importance of maintaining dental health at every appointment.

Do Whitestrips Work? Teeth Whitening in Arcadia

Do Whitestrips Work in Arcadia? If you’ve been down the toothpaste aisle at any Arcadia grocery store, you have probably noticed dozens of products that claim to whiten your teeth. From toothpaste to strips, it’s an impressive selection. Do any of these teeth whitening products work?

Whitening Rinses
Whitening rinses are similar to mouthwashes. They kill bacteria, freshen breath and may help remove plaque. They contain whitening ingredients not found in mouthwashes. Manufacturers advise taking a mouthful of the rinse twice a day, and letting it slosh around on your teeth for one minute.

Whitening Strips
Whitening strips have a couple of drawbacks. Though they contain a bleaching agent, it is much less potent than those used in dental offices. Another problem is that they do not whiten between teeth because the strips only touch the front surface. It can take months, and many strips, before you get any real results.

Teeth Whitening Gels
Whitening gels are painted onto teeth with a small brush. One problem with them is that they only stick to dry teeth. If any saliva gets on them during treatment, the gel is likely to slide off.

None of these over-the-counter products can match the strength of professional treatments. At Premier Dental Esthetics we use the KoR whitening system. We also provide other cosmetic dentistry services, as well as family dentistry.
