Do you have brown or white spots on your teeth? Has this discoloration been part of your smile your whole life? You may have fluorosis, a discoloration of teeth during dental develop. Before permanent teeth ever erupt from the gums, they absorb fluoride and other nutrients in order to build strong, healthy dental structures. Most teeth are fully formed by the time a patient reaches the age of 8. If kids are over exposed to fluoride before teeth have fully developed, discoloration on the surface of teeth, fluorosis, occurs as a result. At Premier Family Dental, we offer multiple treatment options to reverse fluorosis discoloration.

Next time you visit your local pharmacy or grocery store, take a few moments to explore the dental care aisle. You’ll find shelves of whitening gels, strips, pastes, and mouth rinses. All of these products promise dramatic results, effortless application, and long lasting brilliance. Unfortunately, retail whitening treatments are typically ineffective in removing stains. If you’re interested in brightening your smile, the friendly Waco dentist and team at Premier Family Dental invites you to schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation. During this appointment, we’ll determine the likely causes of your staining, and the best way to whiten teeth.

People make a lot of New Year’s resolutions. From dramatic weight loss plans to spending more time with family to paying off debts. Whatever your New Year’s resolution, remember, a beautiful smile goes with everything. According to studies conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, people found a beautiful smile to be an indicator of confidence, and were most likely to remember smiles than any other part of a first impression. Researchers at UC Berkley think that smiling more often allows people to live longer, happier lives, and an employment survey showed people with an attractive smile were more likely to get hired or promoted. Maybe 2016 is your year to shine with a picture-perfect smile from the team at Premier Family Dental in Waco.

Premier Family Dental restores smiles daily throughout Waco, TX, Robinson, Lorena, and the surrounding communities.
What Are Your Holiday Teeth Whitening Choices?
You have three basic choices for whitening your teeth. You could switch to a teeth whitening toothpaste. However, this is probably the least effective method. Whitening toothpastes don’t actually contain the beaching agents necessary to correct stains and discoloration. They contain mild abrasives that can only polish away shallow surface stains. Teeth whitening toothpaste is best used as a way to maintain your results after you have chosen a more effective method. Your next choice may be to try an over-the-counter teeth whitening product. These products may come in the form of whitening strips, gels, rinses, or trays. Though more powerful than teeth whitening toothpastes, it can take several weeks of daily use before these products begin to show any significant results. In addition, the prolonged exposure to bleaching agents could be irritating if you have sensitive teeth and gums. Your best bet is to choose professional teeth whitening from a qualified cosmetic dentist. Dr. Cofer offers professional take-home teeth whitening with custom made whitening trays that you can use at your leisure. Professional whitening can whiten your teeth by several shades after just a few days. Dr. Cofer can also ensure that your gums are protected from irritation and infection.
Don’t miss out on all those special holiday moments because you have to hide a discolored smile. Make a holiday teeth whitening appointment with Dr. Cofer today. Dr. Cofer and the attentive team at Premier Family Dental can help you achieve the teeth whitening results you deserve. Premier Family Dental proudly serves families throughout Waco, TX, Robinson, Lorena, and nearby areas.

Here at Dr. Cofer’s Waco office, one of the questions we hear frequently from our patients is, “Do teeth whitening toothpastes really work?”
The answer is: Yes, they do work, as long as the toothpaste you’re using has an official seal from the American Dental Association (ADA) to verify its claims.
The real issue is that whitening toothpastes are mainly just good for removing surface stains from teeth, and only if you use it twice a day as directed. It will take between two to four weeks to see results. If you’re not trying to remove simple stains, though, like those from coffee or tobacco, whitening toothpaste won’t be very effective.
We understand that you want an easy, effective teeth whitening solution. If you don’t like the results you’re getting from your whitening toothpaste, or you need a stronger whitening solution, we also provide teeth whitening services at our Waco office. Dr. Cofer can create custom-made, take-home teeth whitening trays, allowing you to get whiter teeth from the comfort of your home. Within three to four days, you’ll begin to see dramatic results. You can then use your whitening toothpaste to help maintain your beautiful, white smile.
If you want to know more about whitening toothpastes and our take-home whitening trays, our Waco team is ready to help. Give us a call. Premier Family Dental proudly serves patients from Lorena, Robinson, Hewett, and surrounding towns.
