What is teeth whitening?
If you would like a whiter smile, you are not alone. Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental services available at Alpine Heights Dentistry. It is the process used to improve the color and luminosity of your tooth enamel. Whether your teeth have naturally aged or you have dark stains from smoking, poor dental hygiene, and other lifestyle habits, we have a solution. Both Dr. Pilling are pleased to offer two highly effective methods of teeth whitening in Meridian, Idaho.
What is Zoom Advanced Whitening?
Zoom Advanced Whitening is our premier in-office whitening system, which can dramatically improve the color of your teeth in just a single visit. It works by using a powerful light to activate a whitening agent applied directly to your teeth. This whitening agent sinks deep down into your tooth enamel to bleach away stains and whiten your smile by multiple shades.
How can I whiten my smile at home?
If you prefer to whiten your teeth at home, our dentist can create custom whitening trays for you to use at your own convenience. Filled with whitening gel and worn snugly over the teeth, you can wear your whitening trays for at least 30 minutes a day when it works best for you.
To achieve a more dazzling smile, please contact our dental office today. We would be happy to schedule your teeth whitening consultation.
What are veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are used by our dentist to correct a wide variety of dental flaws. In fact, veneers are one of our most versatile treatments, allowing us to dramatically change the color, size, shape, and length of a tooth as needed. We can use a dental veneer to repair a single tooth or many to complete a total smile transformation. When you meet with either Dr. Pilling, we will discuss all of your options and determine how veneers can most benefit your smile.
How are veneers applied?
We are able to use veneers to enhance your smile in just two visits to Alpine Heights Dentistry. During the first visit, impressions are taken from which your veneers are made. Your teeth are also lightly prepared to accommodate the thickness of the dental veneer. If necessary, we may place temporary veneers on your smile until your final veneers are created. Once our favored dental laboratory has created your veneers, we will invite you back to our office to make any necessary adjustments and cement the veneers in place.
If you are interested in transforming your smile with a dental veneer in Meridian, Idaho, please contact us today. We hope to hear from you soon!
What is BOTOX®?
At Alpine Heights Dentistry, we believe that improving your facial muscles and skin is just one way we can highlight your smile and enhance your overall appearance. BOTOX is an injected medication used to smooth out and improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, as well as crow’s feet. The BOTOX medication targets the muscles that cause frown lines and crow’s feet lines; by temporarily reducing the activity of these muscles, BOTOX reduces the appearance of those lines. BOTOX treatment is fast and comfortable; the procedure involves no invasive surgeries and requires no downtime. To enhance your comfort, we may use a numbing cream before the treatment. Your skilled dentist, Dr. Wade Pilling, then simply injects the BOTOX medication into the targeted area. You will see results in as little as 24-48 hours, with maximum effects visible at 30 days.
Is BOTOX safe?
When administered by a licensed provider, like Dr. Wade Pilling, BOTOX is very safe. Be sure to discuss any concerns or allergies you have with your dentist before treatment.
