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.

Options for Whitening Severely Discolored Teeth ,

If you long for a beautiful, white, star quality smile but have severe tooth discoloration that does not respond to over-the-counter whitening strips or toothpastes, you are not alone.  Many adults have severe discoloration due to smoking, medications taken as a child or stains developed while wearing braces.  Fortunately, there are a variety of options that can be used to treat this problem.

The whitening solutions that are made available through a dentist are stronger than the ones that are sold over-the-counter and may be just what you need to achieve a bright, beautiful smile.  Many dental offices offer a teeth whitening system that an be used at home.  It consists of custom trays that are filled with a whitening solution and worn over the teeth for a certain period of time.  With these systems, you can choose how often to whiten your teeth.  Many dental offices also offer an in-office teeth whitening solution that can be completed in a little over an hour.  This type of system involves coating the teeth with a special solution and then curing it with a special light.

The two different types of teeth whitening solutions offered by dentists are highly effective for most individuals, however, if your tooth discoloration is very severe, they may not work for you.   In this case, you may have to consider either crowns or porcelain veneers.  A crown is a restoration that can be placed over a tooth the improve its appearance.  This type of solution works for patients who have one or several teeth that are discolored, not their entire set of teeth.  Porcelain veneers are extremely thin shells that can be laminated to the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance.  This solution is better suited for individuals with severe tooth discoloration on all or most of the teeth that show when they smile.

If you desire a whiter, brighter, more vibrant smile, talk to your dentist today about the available teeth whitening solutions.  Your dentist can help you select the system that is best suited to your particular needs.
