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.

Your Age and Your Teeth ,

As a natural part of the aging process, our teeth often become darker due to changes in their mineral structure as the enamel becomes less porous.  Over time, bacterial pigments, tobacco and foods and beverages including red wine, coffee, berries, tea and colas can stain our teeth and cause them to become discolored.  The use of the medication Tetracycline has also been shown to cause darkening of the teeth.

Your smile is often the first thing people notice about you and creates a lasting first impression.  A bright and healthy smile enhances your overall appearance and draws others to you.  This can be beneficial in a variety of social interactions including first dates, job interviews, business meetings, presentations and more.  Teeth that are stained and/or darkened detract from your smile and add years to your appearance.  Fortunately, advances in cosmetic dentistry, specifically tooth whitening systems, enable most patients to achieve whiter teeth and a brighter, more beautiful smile.

Although over the counter tooth whitening kits are now widely available, there are several advantages to whitening your teeth under the supervision of a qualified dentist.  If misused or overused, over the counter tooth whitening kits can be harmful to the enamel of your teeth.  A dentist can recommend the right amount of whitening solution and the right frequency to ensure whiter teeth without causing damage to your teeth and gums.  A dentist can also monitor the health of your teeth and gums while you are going through the whitening process and address problems such as tooth pain or sensitivity to hot and/or cold foods or beverages.

Whitening your teeth is a great way to improve your appearance as well as your confidence.  If you are interested in achieving whiter teeth and a more beautiful smile, contact a qualified cosmetic dentist in your area to get more information about tooth whitening systems and how they may benefit you.
