All staff members are very nice. I came in after having neck surgery. Range of motion wasn’t normal for me. They worked on it to make sure I was comfortable and not in pain. Will be going back again.

From the front office to the Dentist, the experience was awesome. Everyone took their time to help and thoroughly explain all details. This was my first visit and now I have a great dental facility!!

Am I a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

candidate for teeth whiteningAm I a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening can remove stains from the surface of a tooth and it can lighten the shade of the teeth. This can help to improve the appearance of the teeth, and it is one of the simplest and least intrusive types of cosmetic dentistry. Naturally, many people want to have a beautiful and bright smile. Over time, teeth will stain from a range of different things, such as coffee or tobacco. Whitening can help, but you want to make sure you are a good candidate for teeth whitening first.

Who Is Not a Good Candidate for Tooth Whitening

While it is true that tooth whitening is a great option for many people, it is not a good option for some. Those who have chronic sensitivity in their teeth may have trouble with the chemicals used for the whitening. Those who are suffering from periodontal disease, oral cancer, or who have enamel that is excessively worn down to not make good candidates for teeth whitening either. Most other patients should not have a problem.

How to Make the Whitening Last Longer

If you get a tooth whitening treatment, you will want it to last for a long time. By taking good care of your teeth with proper brushing, you can increase the length of the whitening treatment in many cases. However, to get the best results, you will want to think about some of the lifestyle changes you are making. If you are a smoker, drink a lot of coffee or tea, or you eat staining foods, you might want to rethink those habits. Otherwise, you will have to have more frequent treatments.

I am always excited to go to the dentist now that I go to Chesterfield Family Dental. They always answer any questions I have and are so friendly and nice. I am always so comfortable here, which is saying alot because I have peridontal disease and the treatment for it doesn't always feel so great, but when Im here, the hygenist makes me forget all about it!

The staff is so warm and welcoming from the moment you walk in the door. Even though my son is a bit apprehensive about going to the dentist since he had to have four teeth pulled in the past, he is still always happy to see them. Dr. Buzbee and his staff are so great and patient with him. He leaves with a smile on his face and no cavities!

I have been a patient of Dr. Buzbee for as long as I can remember. The Staff at Chesterfield Family Dental is always greet you when you walk in and they seem to know everyone by name. The care you get for the staff is always great and all seem to be the best of the best at what they do. I have always recommend anyone I know to go see them and will continue to do so in the future.
