Covid - 19 Update

     

Davis Dentistry will resume practice operations in compliance with relevant Executive Orders on Monday May 4th. We will continue to employ the enhanced cleaning and infection control protocols we implemented in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We want to provide our patients and team members with the safest possible healthcare environment.

Our practice will be screening all patients and visitors to our offices. At Davis Dentistry team member will ask each patient/visitor a few travel-related and health screening questions, both prior to their appointment and upon arrival in our office; patients’ and visitors’ temperatures will be checked with a temporal thermometer. We are asking all patients to arrive 5 min. prior to their scheduled appointment. Patients who are at high risk for COVID-19, as determined by our office, will likely have their visit rescheduled. If you’re not feeling well, please contact us to reschedule, whenever possible, in advance of your visit.

All team members will be surveyed daily to ensure adherence with social distancing standards and status of their health. All team members will be in masks (or scarves for non-clinical team members). Importantly, all personnel in our offices will complete COVID-19 testing with the IGG antibody test as soon as we receive our supply of test kits (within 2 weeks).  The IGG test determines both the acute presence of the virus and whether our team members were exposed to COVID-19 previously.

Additionally, to reduce the risk of transmission to our patients and team members, as well as their families, the office has installed 4 very powerful HEPA h13 air filters.  These filters will remove all bacteria, viruses and VOCS down to the .3 microns keeping our working environment safe!

We appreciate your support of these infection control measures.  Your oral health is vital to your overall wellness and your ability to resist the impact of COVID-19, so we encourage you, if healthy, to maintain your regularly scheduled hygiene appointments with Dr. Davis and our practice. 

In good health,


Dr. Davis and Team

Zoom! In-office vs. Zoom! DayWhite At-home Whitening By Mark Davis on May 06, 2013

Zoom! In-office vs. Zoom! DayWhite At-home WhiteningMaking the best impression on people means having a great smile, and great smiles tend to be bright, clean, and white. Of course, not everyone can have such a perfect smile. In fact, many times people's smiles are far less than perfect. Various foods and beverages (especially coffee and colas) can discolor teeth and create problematic stains that can make people feel very self-conscious.

But you can actually make these stains go away thanks to professional-grade teeth whitening treatments at our Scottsdale cosmetic dentistry practice. We'd like to take a moment right now to focus on Zoom!® in-office treatment and Zoom!® DayWhite at-home whitening so you understand how they can benefit you.

Good Candidates for Teeth Whitening

The best candidates for teeth whitening are people who have stains on their teeth that are the result of food, beverages, and the natural aging process. (Dental stains that originate within the tooth will not be able to be treated through teeth whitening.) When you meet with a skilled cosmetic and restorative dentist in Scottsdale, you'll be able to learn if teeth whitening is the right option for you.

About In-Office Teeth Whitening Treatment

Zoom!® in-office teeth whitening is an ideal treatment for people with varying levels of tooth discoloration. During this Scottsdale teeth whitening treatment, a bleaching agent is carefully applied to the patient's teeth. This gel is then exposed to a laser light to activate its deep-penetrating bleaching properties. The process is repeated two more times for maximum effect. Additional visits can be made for more whitening as needed, though just one visit to the practice can improve the color of your smile by several shades.

About At-Home Teeth Whitening

Zoom!® DayWhite at-home whitening is another option for teeth whitening. This is a professional-grade bleaching kit that is superior to many of the over-the-counter bleaching kits available at the local store. Patients will place the bleaching agent in special trays and wear these trays in the mouth according to instructions. (Note: be sure to follow these instructions to the letter in order to avoid tooth sensitivity.) Gradually the smile will be whitened and brightened.

Which type of teeth whitening is better?

Both in-office and at-home teeth whitening are solid cosmetic dentistry options to consider. The in-office treatment yields much faster results than the take-home version because of the laser light technology, though the take-home whitening kit does yield comparable results even if treatment takes longer. The question is really which treatment is better for you and your needs, which we can discuss at greater length during your visit.

Alternatives to Teeth Whitening Treatment

In some cases, the tooth discoloration or stains will be too severe for teeth whitening treatment to address. Many times, the best option for care in those situations is the use of porcelain dental veneers. These thin shells of special dental ceramic can drastically improve the overall aesthetics of your smile.
