Customers can rest assured that all services are backed by a guarantee and can be redone to satisfaction within five days, and a range of high-quality styling products available at 10%–30% below their normal retail price helps ensure any new style can be easily sustained at home.
Before bringing the pain to teeth stains, a complimentary consultation with one of First Choice Dental's dentists is necessary to make sure you don't have periodontal disease or gum conditions that would interfere with the whitening treatment. If eligible, impressions of your chompers will be taken so that customizable upper and lower plastic trays can be made. During a second visit with the dental defenders, the trays will be fitted and adjustments made if necessary. Once both trays fit their ivory horseshoes, you'll be given three tubes of whitening gel. Depending on the amount of stains from chocolate, cigarettes, or chocolate-flavored cigarettes recently devoured, you'll be advised to wear the trays anywhere from three hours a day to overnight for two weeks.
For more than a quarter of a century, Dr. James Michaels has practiced dentistry with an understanding of the trepidation that many people feel towards dental visits, often at the expense of their dental health. Dr. Michaels and his caring staff emphasize gentle dentistry, earning the trust needed to build long-term relationships with patients rather than losing them to cults that worship gummy bears. Among other comforting amenities, headphones engulf patients in a selection of tunes to keep them relaxed during each session.
Dr. Michaels and his staff make sure to walk patients through the ins and outs of each procedure, whether in the area of general and cosmetic dentistry or oral surgery and sorcery. These procedures incorporate up-to-date technologies and techniques thanks to the dental team's commitment to continuing education.
