Teeth Whitening. Teeth whitening can be performed to reduce discoloration and staining, or simply to provide the patient with whiter, brighter teeth. The term “teeth whitening” can refer to a number of techniques to improve the brightness of the patient’s teeth. Among them are chemical whitening, mild acid whitening, abrasive teeth brightening and the newest technique, laser teeth whitening.
Teeth Bleaching. Teeth bleaching is chemical process used to lighten the color of the patient’s teeth. The procedure can be performed entirely in Riverdale Dental office or it can be performed by the patient in their home, using a materials provided by the dentist.
Bleaching agents actually change the color of your teeth, but only are effective on certain types of stains. For example, bleaching agents have a difficult time removing brownish or grayish stains. These products also are not as effective on pitted or badly discolored teeth, or on restorations such as crowns, bridges, bonding and tooth-colored fillings (porcelain veneers or dental bonding may be more appropriate in this case).
Professional bleaching performed by our office is considered to be the most effective and safest method; done properly, tooth whitening can last as long as five years.
Botox Cosmetic is remarkably effective for eliminating deep grooves, furrows and wrinkles and helps restore a soft, natural and relaxed appearance. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). One 10-minute treatment—a few tiny injections—and within days there’s a noticeable improvement which can last up to 4 months. After decades of use, Botox remains the gold standard of non-surgical rejuvenation.
During treatment, a very small amount of Botox is injected into the muscles along expression lines on the forehead and the bridge of the nose, around the eyes, or on the neck. This causes the muscles to relax, softening your appearance within days.
The positive effects of Botox start to show within a week of treatment and last for months.
