Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments requested by patients today. And it’steeth whitening no wonder! With a dramatically whiter smile, results in as little as one appointment, and the ability to enhance your appearance without spending a ton of money, it’s easy to see why Danbury teeth whitening performed by a skilled cosmetic dentist is one of the best—and simplest ways—to achieve a more confident, dazzling smile.
 
Still deciding on whether or not teeth whitening is for your? We’ve listed three benefits of teeth whitening below.
 
1. It improves your appearance.
 
Ask most people why they would like to have their teeth whitened, and they will tell you that they want to improve the look of their smile. Stained teeth can cause a lot of embarrassment, making it difficult to feel confident in social situations, including job interviews. When teeth are whitened under the care of Danbury Dental Group, patients enjoy a noticeably whiter and much more attractive smile that results in improved self-confidence and an overall enhanced quality of life.
 
2. The results are fast.
 
Attaining whiter teeth in a single appointment is possible when you choose professional, in-office whitening. Professional teeth whitening in Danbury can be completed in a single visit, and teeth will be several shades lighter by the end of the treatment. In some cases, at-home whitening trays will be recommended to maintain the desired white.
 
3. Teeth whitening in Danbury is affordable.
 
Teeth whitening, compared to many other cosmetic procedures, is a great way to improve your smile—especially for patients on a more limited budget. Whether you choose at-home whitening trays or opt to have professional whitening treatment in our office, Danbury Dental Group can help you decide on a payment plan that works best for your budget. In some cases, an insurance provider may even cover the costs!
 
Improved aesthetics, nearly instant results and affordability are just three reasons teeth whitening is a viable option for most patients today. What are you waiting for? Achieving a whiter, more confident smile is just one appointment away. Contact our office today to schedule a free consultation, or visit our website to request an appointment.

Good oral hygiene does more than just keep cavities at bay. It can also help with teeth whitening. Danbury residents whiteningcan read below for more information!
 
Brushing
The majority of food remaining in the mouth is removed by brushing. The bristles help remove surface stains by buffing them. Remember to tilt the brush at a 45-degree angle, directing the brush away from the gumline.
 
Flossing
Flossing won’t turn your teeth three shades whiter, but using whitening floss on a daily basis will compliment your teeth. Compared to your toothbrush, floss does a better job of removing plaque bacteria and food particles between the teeth.
 
The key to whiter teeth is healthier teeth and gums. You just need to make sure you are properly cleaning your teeth. You don’t want to damage the enamel, which is why there is always a time to brush and floss teeth. Check it out below.
 
Wait 30 Minutes to Brush and Floss 
After eating, do you remember being told to wait an hour before jumping back into a pool? That’s because your body needs to digest food so you don’t get a cramp while swimming.
 
The same kind rule applies to brushing and flossing your teeth—without the jumping in the pool thing.
 
After eating a meal or snack, you should wait at least 30 minutes. This allows saliva to remove excess acid and food particles; thus, helping your enamel to remineralize and prepare for cleaning.
 
Here is what you should look for at the store:
  • Whitening floss
  • Fluoride toothpaste with whitening agents – help strengthen enamel while exposing teeth whitening agents
  • Food that stimulate saliva production, such as carrots and celery.
  • In-Office Teeth Whitening: A Helping Hand 
Although brushing and flossing can remove some stains, there will most likely be discoloration still left on the teeth, especially in the front. Roughly scrubbing the teeth won’t be of any help, and you don’t want to damage the enamel.
 
To attain your desired white smile, you may need to think about teeth whitening treatment. In Danbury, teeth whitening treatment is available at Danbury Dental Group! Call our office at (203) 792-3316 for more information. 

Food facts for maintaining a healthy smile

 
 
 
Think you know your food? Here are some dental facts related to a few everyday foods.

1562718671) Salt: Yeah we eat way too much salt and it dominates every meal we consume. But have you thought about using it as an anti-inflammatory? As a cheap home remedy, salt provides us with another way to take care of our gums. Swishing warm water with salt or doing a little scrub can reduce inflammation by osmosis and even kill off some bacteria. The abrasiveness even reduces plaque! So next time you’re in a pinch during a spontaneous camping trip, consider using a little salt to freshen up.

Screen shot 2014-02-28 at 6.34.52 AM2) Cranberries: These little red berries are more than just sauce at Thanksgiving. They provide 13.3 mg of vitamin C in 1 cup which is important for collagen synthesis, β-oxidation, and reducing reactive oxidative species (anti-oxidant). The best part is that studies show cranberries may prevent bacteria from using adhesion molecules to hold onto teeth. The proanthocyanidins (PAC) in cranberry disrupts the formation of glucan (sugar polymers in plaque) by inhibiting glucosyltransferases. This could be revolutionary and research is still being conducted to see how this could affect oral hygiene management for our community.

1628470943) Honey: Your everyday, local honey contains hydrogen peroxide which has antibacterial components, but I’m not talking about this kind of honey. Manuka honey from New Zealand contains other components involved in antibacterial activities such methylglyoxal. A study done in 2010 compared the effects of Manuka honey to chlorhexidine gluconate (an ingredient in mouthwash) and xylitol chewing gum on plaque levels. It was revealed that plaque inhibition by Manuka honey was similar to chlorhexidine and both of these reduced plaque better than xylitol. Manuka honey varies in the amount of methylglyoxal so be sure to check the UMF (unique manuka factor) which rates the honey based on methylglyoxal levels. Even regular day-to-day honey has some methylglyoxal so check it out!
