Mercury Free Fillings                                                                                                              

Amalgam is a material commonly known as the 'SILVER FILLING " material for teeth.  It contains the toxic  metal  ~  Mercury.   Mercury has been proven to be toxic and unsafe. So why is it still being placed in patient's mouths  today?  Amalgam /Silver fillings are less expensive, which can appeal to some patients .   Although it is still legal to use mercury in dentistry, The Environmental Protection Agency has noted mercury to be a TOXIC POISON.  

For the health and safety of his patients, Dr. Garcia practices  Mercury Free Dentistry  by using  tooth - colored composite / porcelain fillings instead of amalgam/silver fillings, providing you with  a more natural looking, beautiful restoration!!

Teeth Whitening

 

Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of

 natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.

 Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients,

 there are a number of ways to whiten teeth. The most popular method is using a home teeth whitening

 system or In-Office method that will whiten teeth dramatically. Since teeth whitening only works on

 natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc.

 Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached

 teeth.

 Teeth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up may be needed every several years, and more often if

 you smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine.

 Reasons for teeth whitening:

 • Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development).

 • Normal wear of outer tooth layer.

 • Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).

 • Yellow, brown stained teeth.

 

What does teeth whitening involve?

 Take Home System:

 This type of teeth whitening usually requires two visits. At the first appointment, impressions (molds)

 will be made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear plastic, trays.

 At your second appointment, you will try on the trays for proper fit, and adjustments will be made if

 necessary. The trays are worn with special whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or

 overnight for a couple of weeks depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening. It is

 normal to experience tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth, but it will subside

 shortly after you have stopped bleaching.

 You will receive care instructions for your teeth and trays, and be encouraged to visit your dentist

 regularly to help maintain a beautiful, healthy, white smile.

 

In-Office System:

 As for this system it only takes a one hour appointment to achieve the best results. Our office uses one

 of the best whitening systems up to date. Patients who have tried this system have got a 3-4 shade

 difference in a matter of 40 minutes!

 Opalescence Boost is a chemically activated power whitening gel that provides brighter, whiter teeth

 after just 40 minutes in the dental chair. The powerful 40% hydrogen peroxide gel is chemically

 activated, so it doesn’t require a hot, uncomfortable light to work. Using the unique double-syringe

 configuration, the clinician activates the 40% hydrogen peroxide formula just prior to application,

 ensuring every dose of Opalescence Boost is fresh and effective.

 Opalescence tooth whitening gel contains PF (potassium nitrate and fluoride). Potassium nitrate has

 been shown to help reduce sensitivity. Fluoride has been shown to help reduce cavities and strengthen

 enamel. Together they help to improve the overall health of the teeth.
