The appearance of your teeth is important for your confidence and how you feel about yourself. If they have lost their luster from tooth discoloration, it is normal to feel insecure about your smile. To reveal whiter teeth, there are several over-the-counter products and DIY home remedies that claim to provide exceptional results, but some are harmful to your teeth. Instead, it is best to visit your dentist for professional teeth whitening in Williamstown.

It can be. Teeth whitening is easily the most popular cosmetic dentistry service we provide, but most patients who visit us have already tried one or more at-home whitening products before their appointment. Best case scenario, these patients see some minimal improvement. Worst case scenario, patients experience serious dental sensitivity or damage to their teeth and gums. In most cases, patients simply have little to no change in their oral health or the appearance of their smiles. Rather than wasting time and money and putting your smile at risk, consider scheduling a cosmetic dentistry consultation with a trusted professional for predictable, safe results.

Recent decades of human life have been recorded in writing, but how can we learn more about our ancestors who lived before recorded history? We can start by taking a look at their teeth! Archaeologists and other researchers have noticed numerous tell-tale signs of our ancient past when evaluating the teeth of skeletal remains. For instance, wear patterns indicate people in certain areas around the globe chewed on herb sprigs and soft twigs from trees to clean their teeth. Some skeletons reveal early attempts at advanced dentistry procedures like seashells, rocks, and other items inserted into the gums to function as an early form of dental implant supported tooth replacement. Recent research has delved into the secret stories being told by neanderthal dental plaque. Thanks in part to a lack of preventive dentistry, these skeletal remains that can be dated back tens of thousands of years actually have a lot to tell us.
