COVID-19 Update

Pure Dental Health is dedicated to helping our community during this time. We are seeing patients for emergencies BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please call our office to schedule your appointment.

We’ve made a decision based on ADA and CDC recommendations to postpone elective procedures for at least one week, however, we are still seeing patients depending on your need.

According to the association, emergency dental care include:

  • Any treatment for pain, swelling or infection
  • Chipped, cracked and broken teeth
  • Loose or displaced restorations

Refrain from coming in if you have:

  • A fever
  • A cough or shortness of breath
  • A history of significant chronic illness
  • A compromised immune system
  • Or if you or a family member:
    • Are considered high-risk
    • Have traveled to a location with a level 3 travel health notice
    • Have traveled in a airplane in the past two weeks
    • Have been previously asked to self-isolate or self-quarantine
    • Have had close contact to an individual diagnosed with the COVID-19 infection

We are also scheduling virtual exams. You can meet with a dentist from your home. This service will allow you to have a virtual exam with your dentist via video call. This service should be available by 3/20/20. When calling, notify our scheduler if you would like to schedule a virtual appointment and they will take your name and number and get back with you with available times once this service is live.

We will be posting updates as we have them.

5 Reasons to Whiten Your Teeth ,

Teeth Whitening is now the most requested cosmetic dental treatment.  This is not surprising since this single cosmetic dental treatment can dramatically improve your appearance, your self-confidence and even your quality of life.  There are a number of reasons why individuals decide to whiten their teeth including the following:

  1. to whiten teeth that have become stained due to smoking or consuming foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, soda, berries and red wine
  2. to treat the discoloration that occurs as a natural part of the aging process
  3. to prepare for an important event such as a wedding, reunion, anniversary or job interview
  4. to prepare to start dating again after a divorce or the loss of a spouse or partner
  5. as a complement to other cosmetic treatments such as Botox, facial fillers or plastic surgery

The bottom line is that whitening your teeth can greatly enhance and take years off of your appearance.  It can also increase your confidence which makes you more attractive to others.  This can be important if you are looking to start dating, have an important event coming up or are interviewing for a job. 

When you do decide to whiten your teeth, there are many options from which to choose.  There are a variety of over-the-counter whitening products that can be used to whiten your teeth, however, they differ widely in their effectiveness and some can even be harmful to your dental health.  For this reason, the American Dental Association recommends whitening your teeth under the supervision of a dentist.  Most dentists offer two options for teeth whitening:  take-home kits and in-office treatments.  The take-home kits produce gradual results and can be used over and over again, as needed.  The in-office procedure produces dramatic results in a single appointment lasting for a little over an hour.  Both of these methods have certain advantages and disadvantages.  Your dentist can help you determine which method is better suited for you based on your lifestyle, your budget and your dental health.

If dingy discolored teeth are causing you to lose confidence and are negatively affecting your quality of life, talk to your dentist today about whitening your teeth.  Enjoy your whiter, brighter, more beautiful smile!
