Mountain Lakes Dental Office
One of the most important goals of any dental practice is to help its patients prevent future dental problems from ever occurring. Our Mountain Lakes dental office of You Should Smile offers many preventative care services to keep the whole family’s teeth healthy and their smiles bright.
Our Mountain Lakes dental office staff believe that our patients are the first line of defense in protecting their own teeth from decay and other dental problems and that together we can prevent future problems and promote healthy teeth. Our doctor provides regular comprehensive examinations and radiographs to evaluate the state of your oral health and diagnose any present or developing problems. We can recommend treatments that can minimize any impending problems. We provide dental sealants for the permanent molars of our young patients to help keep decay out.
Our Mountain Lakes dental office stresses that the best way to prevent tooth and gum problems caused by decay is to keep the teeth clean. Our office emphasizes that regular teeth cleaning will help rid the teeth of decay causing bacteria from leftover food particles and other debris. A dental cleaning from our hygienist scrapes away these food particles from around and between the teeth and gums. The office cleaning alone is not enough to ward off future problems. Our doctor recognizes the extreme importance of routine daily dental care at home. Proper tooth brushing, flossing and use of dental rinses are key to promoting good dental health. We work with our younger patients to make sure that they develop the best techniques in terms of daily dental care and understand the importance of it. We try to make good dental habits fun for children. Make an appointment with our office to evaluate the state of your dental health and we’ll develop a preventative program just for you.

With both in-office and at-home teeth whitening, we at You Should Smile make is easy for you to rid yourself of those frustrating stains and discolorations that have made your smile less than ideal.
At our 07046 dental office, will get brighter, more attractive teeth in less than an hour. It’s fast, it’s easy, and it’s safe. Store-bought whitening products may actually cause damage to your tooth enamel. That’s because they can contain abrasive ingredients. Our teeth whitening is a chemical bleaching process that breaks down the stains. You can also choose to do it on your own with our handy take-home method. It’s a more gradual process. Our 07046 dental office will provide you with custom-made whitening trays. You simply wear them for two to three hours per night (or overnight in some cases) for a period of two to three weeks. You will then return to us to have your progress gauged. In either instance, you can expect the positive effects to last for at least a year, and maybe even longer with proper maintenance, and depending on your habits. The habits that we refer to includes tobacco use (smoking and smokeless), along with popular foods and drinks. Common ones are tea, coffee, red wine, cola, berries, curry, and hard candies. Even some prescription medication, like tetracycline, will discolor teeth. And the natural aging process leads to a slow loss of tooth enamel, revealing the tissue beneath. That layer is duller and so there is a progressive loss of whiteness as you get older. Fortunately, there is something that you can do about it.
Which of our methods of teeth whitening is best? It’s all a matter of preference on your part. So call our 07046 dental office and let us arrange an appointment for you to come in.
