To Our Valued Patients,

As this newest challenge continues to unfold with COVID-19(Coronavirus), we wanted to give you an update. First, we are currently maintaining our regular schedule. As of now, the Arizona Department of Health Services is not recommending closure or modification. We will continue to closely monitor information from the CDC and AZDHS and follow their recommendations. We will keep you up to date on any changes we may have to make via emails, our website, and social media.

Second, we would like to give you some insight into our practices to keep our team and patient family safe and comfortable. Dentistry is uniquely positioned to protect our team and patients. On a daily basis, we practice ‘Universal Precautions.’ This means we ALWAYS assume that every patient may be carrying a contagious, dangerous disease and we follow strict guidelines to prevent the transmission of any potential disease, including Hepatitis, Tuberculosis, HIV, AND COVID-19(Coronavirus). This has been standard of care and regulated by the Centers for Disease Control since the 1980s with the AIDS
epidemic.

These measures include:
1. Strict hand hygiene protocols.
2. Use of single use disposable protective equipment and barriers.
3. Thorough disinfection of exposed or potentially exposed surfaces after every patient visit.
4. Disinfection and high-heat steam sterilization of instruments. Routine monitoring of sterilization verification.
5. Continual education on infection control techniques.

In addition to these mandated measures, we have also implemented:
1. Disinfection of common area surfaces every 30 minutes.
2. Availability of hand sanitizer in common areas.
3. Screening everyone who enters based on CDC recommendations.
4. Pre-procedural mouth rinse.

We are happy to address any concerns you may have. We will continue to care for our patient family during this time following all best practices and will monitor CDC guidelines for any new recommendations.

Thank you for being a part of our family. Thank you for allowing us to care for you and your family. Please know we are here to support you and help you in any way that we can.

In good health,

Do You Need to Worry About Losing Enamel with Professional Tooth Whitening?


Posted on 10/10/2019 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
Do You Need to Worry About Losing Enamel with Professional Tooth Whitening?When you walk down the hygiene aisle at your local grocery store, if you are older than you have probably noticed more and more shelve space being taken up with do-it-yourself home whitening kits.

There are patches you fold over your teeth, mouthpieces you sleep with, even paste with your own ultraviolet light. The biggest problem people at home face is burning the enamel off your teeth. The questions we get a lot is, “Are there the same risks when you have your teeth whitened professionally?”

Whitening Kits for Home

When you purchase a teeth whitening kit to do at home, it comes pre-packaged with whitening material. They all contain a variety of different chemicals, but the main ingredient in all of them is hydrogen peroxide. With your home kits, they all have different recommended lengths of time.

To protect people's teeth, they limit the kits to 6% percent of hydrogen peroxide. Even at a low amount, if you leave them in too long or you repeat the process too often, it is very easy to end up with a mouthful of cavities down the road.  Many have fallen victim to this by roasting the enamel off their teeth

Professional Whitening

When you come to our office, it takes about an hour and a half to perform the procedure. Under the supervision of our dentist, we apply a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and sodium bicarbonate. Our mixture is 30% hydrogen peroxide. Over a period of about 30 minutes, we will remove and reapply the mixture in combination with ultraviolet light. Dental supervision allows us to protect your teeth and whiten them in one sitting. In one sitting, we can do what would take 3-4 months at home.

By using professional help, you protect your teeth. Everyone's habits dictate the length they can withstand bleaching before they are causing damage to their teeth. If you are considering having your teeth whitened, call us today. We can schedule a convenient time and better in person, walk you through the process. You only have one set of teeth and your oral health should never suffer at the attempt of brightening your smile.
