People have been whitening their teeth for more than 20 years now, and bleaching has been proven to be safe and effective.

We offer take-home teeth whitening kits so our patients can achieve great results just by hanging out at home.

We’ll start by having our lab create a custom-made set of trays for you to wear. The trays are very thin and comfortable. You can talk while wearing them, but most of our patients prefer to pop them in and whiten their teeth while watching TV or using the computer.

Tooth decay is a more serious problem than you might think. Did you know that it’s the most common chronic childhood disease?

Do your part to combat tooth decay by brushing and flossing with your child. Kids love when they can share an activity with you, and you’re setting an awesome example of what it means to care for your teeth and gums.

Your baby’s been drooling constantly, and gnawing on everything in sight, but there’s still no sign of a tooth! Teething can be a difficult time for babies -- and for their parents, too!

Here’s a rough idea of when you can expect your baby’s teeth to erupt:

5-8 months: The two bottom front teeth (central incisors)

8-10 months: The four upper incisors

10-16 months: Lower lateral incisors, plus the first baby molars

16-22 months: The “eye teeth” or “canines” (cuspids)

Sometimes parents think their child doesn’t need a toothbrush until they’re one or two years old, but that just isn’t the case. Your child needs a toothbrush as soon as they have a tooth to brush!

Before your baby gets their first tooth, keep their gums healthy by gently wiping them down with a damp washcloth after feedings.
