Whiter Smile with Prescott Dental

No one enjoys smiling at someone knowing there are stains, discoloration or darkening of your teeth. We all want a bright white smile to greet those around us. Prescott Dental can help with all your cosmetic dental services, including whitening that brilliant smile of yours.

How Does Whitening Work?

The process is a lot less complicated that it seems. At Prescott Dentistry, our whitening process uses one of two different types of peroxide-based whitening solution; either carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide. The active oxygen in the peroxide naturally penetrates the pores in our enamel and breaks down stains (caused from substances such as, coffee, soda, tea, wine, blueberries, blackberries, pomegranates, smoking) into smaller particles, bringing back the natural color of your enamel and enhancing the whiteness of your teeth.

How Do They Whiten Teeth at the Dentist?

One important step to help whiten your teeth, is to have a professional cleaning. Our dental office has excellent, skilled dental hygienists who have the training and expertise to polish and remove surface stains from your teeth. This professional cleaning can help to remove the staining that occurs everyday and by itself make your teeth look brighter. After this, you can determine if you would need further whitening treatments.

The teeth whitening process involves taking impressions of your teeth and making custom-fit whitening trays. You then have a consultation with our staff and together evaluate the shade of your teeth and what you want to achieve with the whitening. We instruct you in using the whitening system and together, we get you the smile you want. The trays are convenient and comfortable and often you can’t even tell you are wearing them. Many patients wear the trays while working or while out and about running errands.

After Whitening

During and after teeth whitening, it’s important to know that some sensitivity may be experienced. Avoiding foods that are extremely hot or cold can help. Your dentist will have suggestions that can help alleviate and prevent this sensitivity. Along with whitening toothpaste, limiting smoking, and stain forming foods/drinks will help your white teeth last longer.
There is a bright side to every part of life, including your teeth! Seek out Prescott Dental today to help with your cosmetic dentistry needs.

Free Custom Whitening Trays for Prescott Law Enforcement!

Free Custom Whitening Trays for Prescott Law Enforcement!

PRESCOTT DENTISTRY OFFERS FREE CUSTOM WHITENING TRAYS FOR LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS

Each year our Nation loses between 140-160 Law Enforcement Officers in the line of duty. In 1962, President Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as National Police Week.

This year, during National Police Week the team at Prescott Dentistry would like to celebrate and honor local officers for their service and sacrifice by “Giving a Smile Back” to them. They are offering free custom whitening trays to brighten their smiles. “We are so appreciative of our local officers – we recognize the efforts they put forth in our community. Not only do they serve and protect but we see them volunteering at school functions, coaching little league teams, supporting non-profits, the list is endless.” said Whitney Lee, Team Leader. “For our team to be able to give them something back, to reach out and say we see you and we thank you, may even be a bigger gift to us than it is to them.”

If you are a local law enforcement officer with Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office, Prescott Police Department or Prescott Valley Police Department stop by Prescott Dentistry during National Police Week (May 15th thru 19th) so that they can thank you in person. With the purchase of a $10 tube of whitening gel they will gift you a complimentary set of custom whitening trays and 3 tubes of whitening gel. “The process is easy” Lee said, “Stop by our office at 350 Whipple Street, purchase the whitening gel and allow us to take impressions of your smile. We will call you to come pick up your trays when they are ready (in about a week).” If you have questions or would like to schedule an appointment rather than stop by, please call our team at 445-1660. For complete details, look for flyers around YCSO headquarters or the Prescott Police Department and Prescott Valley Police Department briefing rooms.
