Holiday Teeth Whitening

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Today's Dental of Boxborough, MAThe holidays are fast approaching. Pictures will be snapped and memories will be made. Most people want to put their best face forward at this time of year. That means the best smile. Teeth whitening is a popular way to get a youthful, bright smile fast. But, over-the-counter teeth whitening products are inefficient and not as effective as in-office teeth whitening. But does that take too much time? Not anymore.

At Today’s Dental of Boxborough, we offer teeth whitening for the holidays.

  • In-office whitening in an hour
  • Fastest, easiest way to a whiter, brighter smile
  • Comfortable for the patient

Come to our office and relax for an hour using these whitening trays and get a jump-start on the whitening process. Then, we will send you home with trays and whitening solution to continue the whitening process in the comfort of your own home. This way, your entire tooth will be whitened, not just the front like with over-the-counter products.

In-office teeth whitening is simple. Hydrogen Peroxide breaks down letting Oxygen molecules penetrate the enamel and dissolve the staining and discoloration on the teeth. Hydrogen Peroxide works faster and more efficiently when exposed to a specific wavelength of light energy. The light technology generates that wavelength, without heat, which facilitates the catalyst in the Hydrogen Peroxide gel to work faster and more efficiently. This is just one reason why in-office whitening is so much more effective and longer lasting than over-the-counter products.

Happy Thanksgiving from Today's Dental of Boxborough

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, November 21, 2017

Today's Dental of BoxboroughIt’s Thanksgiving week and a time each year when we reflect upon the blessing within our lives. Today our warmest Thanksgiving wishes go out to all of you, our clients, friends, and neighbors. Along with this note of thanks to you, this week we offer a special Thanksgiving “shout-out” to one of the more unsung Thanksgiving heroes, Sarah Hale. Historians credit Sara Hale as the originator of the Thanksgiving federal holiday.

Sara Hale undertook a 17-year letter writing campaign to make Thanksgiving a national holiday observed in all states. Before Hale, Thanksgiving was not a fixed holiday but rather an informal tradition. Presidents would select a day and make it known that it would be a day of thanksgiving and community. Hale lobbied five separate presidents for a set date until finally her request was granted by president Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln congratulated her tenacity and immortalized the holiday as part of American culture.

So thanks, Sara, for your 17 years of letter writing, for securing our Day of Thanks on Thursday, and for your part in creating one of the most warm and celebrated day within our American culture!


Dental Veneers: A Very Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Procedure

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Today's Dental of Boxborough, MAThere are so many dental procedures available to people these days, and dental veneers are one of the most common and most-sought after.

As we are surrounded by media, we are also surrounded by beautiful smiles. We put quite a bit of emphasis on physical appearances. This is why people go to such great lengths to improve upon their appearance, particularly their smile. A smile is what most first impressions are based upon.

With such emphasis on physical appearance, there have been major advancements in dental technology over the years. People have many choices and options with which to create their perfect smile.

Of all the dental procedures, dental veneers are one of the most common and most-sought after. Dental veneers are extremely thin, custom-made shells made of tooth-colored porcelain that are designed to cover the front surface of your tooth to improve appearance, size, shape, length and color.

Dental veneers can fix many common dental problems; gaps between teeth, broken teeth, chipped and worn teeth, or discolored teeth. Veneers can also fix teeth that are misaligned, misshapen or uneven dramatically improving the look of a smile.

Dental veneers are a great solution for long-lasting results and are a great investment for your confidence and your peace of mind. With proper care and maintenance, dental veneers can lost from 5-10 years. For more information on porcelain veneers, contact Today's Dental of Boxborough.


Teeth Whitening: Enhance Your Smile, Change Your Life

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, November 07, 2017

Today's Dental of Boxborough, MACosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of a person's teeth, mouth and smile and is generally elective rather than necessary. Cosmetic dentistry provides many options for people who are interested in improving their smile, teeth whitening is one of the most popular and talked about of those procedures.

At Today’s Dental of Boxborough we have our own special spin on teeth whitening: dental bleaching, which expedites the process and gets teeth whiter and gets you your dream smile that much faster. Dr. Anna jump starts the process with an in-house visit and then continues with an at home component.

As we age our teeth often become darker because of the changes to their mineral structure. But our teeth also become stained because of bacterial pigments, food and tobacco as well as certain antibiotics. There are many different ways to whiten teeth: bleaching strips, pens, gel, and lasers, and most are traditionally done at home.

At Today’s Dental of Boxborough, our patients come in for a deep dental bleaching session in order to jump start the process. Our patients then go home with prepared dental bleaching “trays” to supplement the process and do touch-ups in the privacy of their own homes. A whiter smile is a beautiful and confident smile and a confident smile changes how you present yourself and how others perceive you.

Contact us to schedule your teeth whitening appointment today, and see how dental bleaching can change your smile and your life.
