Cosmetic Dental FAQs

Q1. Is professional teeth whitening really necessary?

A1. Sure, there is a plethora of over-the-counter whitening systems at your fingertips. Will they provide you with the results that you’re after, however? It’s very possible that they won’t. Both the Drs. Loukas are proud to offer in-office Boost Whitening. Using a dental grade bleaching solution and a special light to activate the whitening agents, you’ll walk out of the office in under two hours with brighter teeth.

Q2. Just how significant are the usual results from Boost!?

A2. You are likely to see an improvement of six to ten shades in just one Boost appointment.

Q3. What if I’ve tried whitening and it doesn’t work?

A3.  If you have intrinsic stains that don’t respond to traditional whitening methods, you might want to consider dental bonding or porcelain veneers.

Q4. What if my teeth are so crooked that I can’t even floss them?

A4. While porcelain dental veneers can help with slightly crooked teeth, sometimes orthodontics are necessary for your dental health. Invisalign shifts your teeth into proper alignment with gentle force. The clear, customized aligners are removable and invisible so you can comfortably straighten your smile in an inconspicuous way.
