New Year. New Smile.

The new year often brings requests for new smiles. 

After a couple years of checking your look on video calls, it might feel like time to refresh your smile. As we age, our smiles start to change. Sometimes teeth aren’t as white and bright as before. Or maybe your teeth have shifted a little over the years. The good news is that dentistry has come a long way. Now, with a little help from Dr. Frahm, you can achieve either subtle or dramatic changes to your teeth, easily and painlessly. 

Brighten Your Smile  

If a bright new smile is your new year’s resolution, here are a few ways to help you accomplish that goal. 

Teeth whitening

Coffee, tea and red wine are a part of many of our lives, but they can wreak havoc and stain those pearly teeth. Teeth whitening is the most requested cosmetic procedure at the dentist’s office, and there are two options to choose from. 

  • In-office teeth whitening 

Dr. Frahm offers two in-office teeth whitening treatment options, both of which are immediate, gentle and effective. The Sinsational Smile treatment is the world’s first eco-friendly whitening system. It works in only 20 minutes, to whiten your teeth by up to five shades. Or, choose the ZOOM system which whitens teeth up to 10 shades in less than an hour. Ask Dr. Frahm which option is best for you. 

  • Professional grade take-home whitening

To whiten your teeth from the comfort of your own home and save some money in the process, take-home whitening kits are the way to go. They cost about a quarter of the price of an in-office procedure and take just a few weeks of daily treatment. The whitening solution is applied by biting down on a custom-fitted mouth guard and then followed by a fluoride treatment. Whitening kits are both easy and effective. 

Teeth straightening in the 21st century  

Straightening teeth is comfortable, easy and more popular with adults than ever before. 

We often recommend and provide Invisalign treatment to straighten teeth.  Invisiblgn is a clear, custom-molded aligner that fits over your top and bottom teeth to straighten teeth, close gaps and align your bite. Unlike metal braces that semi-permanently adhere to teeth, Invisalign aligners are worn about 22 hours a day.  You can remove aligners when you eat. What’s great about Invisalign is that it often straightens teeth more quickly than old school metal braces. 

A new smile this new year is easier than ever to achieve. Call our office today or contact us via our webform and bring a sparkle back to your smile.
