How Often You Should Whiten Your Teeth


For most people, the main question is, “How often should I whiten my teeth?” Think of whitening teeth as a cleaning, something that should be done at least 2x a year. Teeth are comparable to a sponge, as they consistently absorb stains from different foods and drinks such as soft drinks, juices, coffee, tea, red wines, berries, tomato sauce and soy sauce. Whitening agents featured in ZOOM Whitening work to lift these stains, and ultimately restore the pearly white state of your teeth. Additionally, Zoom Whitening is considered one of the safest cosmetic dental procedures available. It uses a desensitizer so that even people with sensitive teeth can whiten often.

If you’re self-conscious about the color of your teeth, you are definitely not alone. Through the natural process of aging, teeth darken and become stained. According to statistics, nearly 95 percent of people are unhappy with the color of their teeth. The unpleasant discoloration may be due to several factors: drinking tea, coffee, soda or red wine; eating berries or tomato sauce; smoking; and taking certain antibiotics.

How Invisalign Aligners Work

Invisalign Aligners are the modern approach for straightening your teeth. It accomplishes the SAME results as traditional braces and within the SAME time!

The first step is a consultation to determine if Invisalign treatment is the best treatment option for you. This is also an opportunity for you to discuss any questions or concerns you may have with Dr. Jacquie Smiles. Dr. Jacquie will sit with you and perform a complete evaluation of your smile, designing what would look best on you. Teeth can be straightened multiple different ways and rarely are two smiles the same. A smile is a fashion accessory that never goes out of style. Dr. Jacquie will gladly go over which smile looks and is the healthiest for you.

Once Dr. Jacquie determines that Invisalign is the right choice for you, a customized treatment plan is created. Her team of dental experts will take x-rays, photos and a digital scan of your teeth. Just think, NO impressions or molds! J

Dr. Jacquie will then use these records to create a digital 3-D image and start constructing and assembling your teeth for your ideal smile. From this creation, a digital model is fabricated to show you and display the movement of your teeth during each phase of your orthodontic treatment. Although results may vary from person to person, the average adult orthodontic treatment is about one year.

Based on your customized treatment plan, a set of aligners are made for you. These should be worn all day, and removed for brushing and flossing your teeth. You will be given several trays to be changed every two weeks and they should be worn 20-22 hours per day. Each new tray matches the movement

These trays that Dr. Jacquie prescribed for you create a straight, ideal and customized smile for you! All you have to do is wear them!! J

Regular Braces versus Invisalign Clear Braces

regular braces versus InvisalignDid you know that overcrowded, spaced out, or crooked teeth can actually be a health issue? Beyond that, having an uneven smile degrades your self-image and makes you look older. Every year, these medical and cosmetic issues lead thousands of people in NYC to consider braces. Some choose to go with traditional metal braces to straighten their smiles, but others make the choice to use Invisalign.

Unlike metal braces, Invisalign uses removable, clear plastic trays to straighten teeth. These trays, called aligners, are custom made for each patient out of clear medical-grade plastic. Throughout the straightening process, each patient will wear a specific aligner for two weeks and then progressively move on to the next aligner. Each aligner gently moves the teeth closer and closer to the end result.

Invisalign offers more flexibility than traditional braces, too. NYC patients are instructed to wear the Invisalign aligners at least 20 hours per day, but they are free to take them out whenever they want. They can eat and drink whatever they want. Plus, the aligners can be removed to make way for proper brushing and flossing of the teeth.

The aligners are smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible on your teeth. What a change from the “metal mouth” of traditional braces! There’s no need to feel embarrassed about your treatment because nobody knows you’re using braces.

Teeth straightening with Invisalign takes the same amount of time as regular braces and it costs about the same, too. But, with Invisalign you get a more comfortable, more flexible, and more visually appealing way to straighten your smile.
