Some people have naturally whiter teeth than others. The aging process, smoking, and consumption of darker food/beverages such as coffee, black tea, and red wine can also affect the rate and degree of discoloration. Our office offers several safe, effective and convenient methods to help brighten your smile including both in-office and take-home treatments. Schedule an appointment for a consultation today to determine which method is right for you!
The American Dental Association recommends seeing your dentist at least twice a year for a dental exam to identify existing or potential dental problems. Dental conditions caught in their early stages are treated faster, easier and often times are more cost effective then if left until later or when pain develops.
At Staten Family and Cosmetic Dentistry we stay up to date on the latest and most effective dental technology. Our doctors have extensive knowledge and experience in treatment planning, and care practices.
Sometimes, despite our best efforts, dental emergencies will arise. We understand that these situations are often painful, inconvenient and frightening.
