NORTHAMPTON AND EAST LONGMEADOW, MASSACHUSETTS – Whiter teeth can boost your confidence and may even help your career success!
Whitening your teeth is a great way to get that vibrant smile you’ve always wanted. Northampton, MA general dentist Dr. Lisa B. Emirzian, who specializes in esthetic dentistry, offers a variety of the most advanced tooth whitening options.
“A majority of stains come from coffee, tea, red wine and tobacco products,” says Dr. Emirzian, an esthetic dentist. “Teeth can also become worn over time, which can cause the yellow dentin color to show through.”
We offer ZOOM! in-office whitening, customized at-home whitening program and BOOST in-office whitening as the best options for extrinsic staining. The ZOOM! in-office whitening is a 90-minute procedure following a doctor exam. A highly trained team member will protect your gums with a rubber dam before placing the whitening agent on your teeth to be activated by the ZOOM! light.
Our customized at-home program is just as effective as ZOOM!; however, it requires more time to get the same results. A lower concentration peroxide gel is safely placed into custom trays and worn for one to two hours per day for two to three weeks.
Lastly, BOOST is another great option and is ideal for those who have whitened in the past and are looking for a “touch-up” or for those who would like an introduction to whitening. BOOST is a one-hour, in-office procedure.
Beyond whitening, there are many other options available for enhancing your smile, including porcelain veneers. This option is great for those who have severe staining or chipped, crooked teeth. Both of these methods can brighten a smile.
“Many people with badly shaped, stained or crooked teeth can have a lower confidence level,” says Dr. Vincent J. Mariano of EMA Dental, a prosthodontistwhose practice also offers esthetic and general dentistry. “They may be afraid to even open their mouths, which could hinder their business careers down the road.”
Veneers are virtually undetectable and resemble healthy tooth enamel. An impression is taken of the teeth and sent to the lab for custom fabrication. The veneers are then bonded directly to the front and top surfaces of the teeth. Porcelain veneers are often one of the services that produce results that patients refer to as an extreme makeover.
Smiling can uplift our moods, relieve stress and boost the immune system. More importantly, a smile is contagious. Having the confidence to show your beautiful smile can draw people to you and lighten up any room.
