Everyone wants sparkling white teeth, but the effects of coffee, tea, wine and cigarettes can conspire to diminish the brightness of an otherwise healthy smile. The naturally white enamel also gets worn away through eating and brushing, and our teeth naturally darken as we age, dulling the white glow of youth.

Fortunately, it’s easier than ever before to restore your smile’s natural luster and regain the natural shine tarnished by years of eating, drinking, and smoking. Teeth whitening is a simple, quick, and inexpensive process that instantly lightens and brightens your teeth.

Don’t be tricked into expensive and ineffective at-home treatments that are full of harsh chemicals and often take weeks to work. If you want a luminous and confident smile, you shouldn’t settle for anything less than the best. Call Drs. Mann and Dolfi to explore your options today.
Zoom Teeth Whitening System

Most Americans don’t naturally enjoy the sparkling smiles of movie stars or fashion models. Age, diet, and genetics can tarnish or fade teeth, detracting from self-esteem and jeopardizing self-confidence. Fortunately for mere mortals, the Zoom Teeth Whitening System can help anyone get the dazzling smile of a Hollywood star.

The Zoom Teeth Whitening System uses an innovative mixture of hydrogen peroxide to bleach out enamel discolorations and lighten the natural dentin of the teeth. Once this mixture is applied to teeth, a special low-heat light is used to activate the chemicals. The light causes the molecules of the hydrogen peroxide to bond to the teeth, causing oxygen to whiten the enamel. This teeth whitening process is simple and painless and can usually be completed in one short visit.

If you have always dreamed of a stunning smile comprised of healthy, bright teeth, the Zoom Teeth Whitening System is right for you. Contact Cosmetic Dentists Dr. Ashley Mann and Dr. Ralph Dolfi today so that you can show off your radiant new look with confidence tomorrow.

If you have been plagued by an imperfect smile, you now have a quick and inexpensive way to alter your fortune. Stained, cracked, chipped, or misshapen teeth can be improved dramatically with specialized laminates to create a healthier and more vibrant appearance.

Laminates are thin layers of porcelain that are applied over the front of teeth, improving the look and feel of the mouth while masking imperfections. They are unique because they allow light to penetrate through the porcelain to the tooth, creating a more natural look than was previously possible. In addition to their aesthetic benefits, laminates also make teeth stronger and healthier.

Another excellent choice for cosmetic improvements is Lumineers by Cerinate. This is a no-prep, no-stress option for anyone who desires a bright smile but wants to avoid traditional veneer procedures. While older veneers required the removal of natural tooth enamel, Lumineers are made of a razor-thin sheet of tough porcelain that fits perfectly over existing teeth, crowns, or bridgework. This allows for a less invasive procedure that is quickly gaining in popularity.

You deserve beautiful, proportionate teeth and laminates are an easy and inexpensive way to return the original luster to your smile. Don’t be self-conscious about imperfections any longer. Make an appointment to discuss the benefits of laminates with Drs. Mann and Dolfi today.
