Dentist Office Northport
Our Northport dental office is built around trust. We believe the absolute best dentistry we can provide will only take place when there is a strong bond of trust with our patients. Therefore working together toward the common goals of healthy teeth and gums and a beautiful smile is the only form of dental practice. We pledge excellence in all we do, and we are looking forward to helping you make the most of your smile now and for all the years to come.
At our Northport dentist office we offer a wide range of procedures from cosmetic dental to general dentistry. The dental examination is a process during which our Northport dentist will investigate your oral and systemic health in order to identify pathologies or concerns and develop a personalized treatment plan. An important part of your dental exam includes an assessment of your gums. Healthy gums adhere tightly to teeth. When gums do not adhere tightly periodontal diseases may be present or bone loss may be developing. If your gums are still not tight around your teeth we will provide periodontal treatment. If needed we will recommend a specialty periodontist in the Northport area for your gum treatment.
Dr. Roger Curtiss has extensive training in the field of cosmetic dentistry. Today modern techniques and dental procedures can even create a new smile that looks completely natural. Teeth whitening is just one of the many ways your smile can look brighter, and it has become very popular among our Northport cosmetic dental patients. Teeth whitening can drastically improve you self confidence. Before you choose which teeth whitening option to use, you should know what the differences are.
Northport Cosmetic Dentist
Peroxide is the active ingredient that bleaches your enamel. The stronger the peroxide, the better results you will see. In-office bleaching offers great results. It is expensive, but quick and effective. Teeth whitening trays and gels are effective, but take a longer time to see results. If you choose the teeth whitening kit from your dentist, you will see better results, than if you purchase it over the counter. In addition tooth whitening trays from your dentist are generally custom fit to your teeth. Although results take a longer time than in office bleaching, ultimately the result will be brighter teeth.
At our Northport cosmetic dentist office we believe the at home teeth whitening kits are the best. Our at home teeth whitening kits provide a high percent of peroxide, and it is less expensive than in office bleaching. If you would like over the counter teeth whitening options, teeth whitening strips of whitening toothpaste are good alternatives but will produce less satisfying results.
