Studies show that simply investing in whitening your teeth will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, cause people to perceive you as being more attractive and healthy, and make you feel more confident about your overall appearance. If you’re not happy with your smile or you have a big event coming up, call Pasadena Family Dentistry to find out how we help keep smiles in Pasadena, TX brilliant.

Our patients always enjoy their dental care with Dr. Revel, and her advanced training in cosmetic dentistry make her an ideal option for teeth whitening or any other cosmetic treatments.

Minimal Investment for Maximum Results

Many cosmetic and restorative dentistry options can be painful, expensive or time consuming. If you’re unhappy with your smile, the team at Pasadena Family Dentistry recommends trying teeth whitening to drastically impact your appearance without draining your bank account. There are many reasons to consider teeth whitening, but here are just a few:

  • Better hygiene – Patients who have their teeth whitened spend more time keeping up with oral hygiene to maintain their brighter smiles.
  • Look younger – A recent study that asked people to guess the ages of participants based on photos revealed that people with whiter teeth frequently received age guesses much lower than their actual age, and people with tooth discoloration were frequently perceived to be much older. Teeth whitening makes fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and other facial imperfections less noticeable because people tend to focus on your smile.
  • Feel more confident – People who whiten their teeth report smiling more often, and feeling more confident when they meet new people, speak in public, or smile for photos.
  • Better first impressions – People with discolored teeth are perceived as being economically disadvantaged, unhealthy, and less attractive. You’ll leave a better first impression if you whiten your smile.

At Pasadena Family Dentistry, we offer at-home professional whitening. At-home whitening is preferable to in-office whitening treatments because patients are able to whiten their teeth gradually which reduces tooth sensitivity and appears more natural. Additionally, our custom made application trays make the most of your at home whitening. You’ll be given prescription strength whitening gel to use, and your alignment tray will fit your teeth snuggly keeping the gel on your teeth not in your mouth or on your gums. You can progressively whiten your teeth several shades in just 1 to 4 weeks. Most patients report seeing the most significant change after the first 2 weeks of use.

For a Family Dentist, Pasadena, TX, Chooses Dr. Holmes and Dr. Revel

May 27, 2015

179150393No question about it—the school year is busy. But during the summer, the pace slows and there’s more time for fun and relaxation. There’s also more time to schedule those all-important dental checkups for you and your family. Dr. Erica Revel and Dr. Kimber Holmes at Pasadena Family Dentistry in Pasadena, TX, are dedicated to providing each member of your family with the oral health care they need. If you’re looking for the family dentist Pasadena trusts, then look no further than Pasadena’s own. We’d love to add your family to our family!

We may be professional dentists, but the truth is you are your family’s first dentist. The cliché “monkey see, monkey do,” has probably never been more applicable than when teaching your children to brush and floss their teeth. If your kids see you taking care of your teeth and gums every day, then they are more likely to do the same. In fact, daily brushing and flossing could be a new family activity to begin over the summer.

Pasadena Family Dentistry and You

In addition to your home hygiene routine, regular dental checkups are critical to your family’s oral health.  At a checkup, we’ll clean your teeth, appraise the health of your gums, examine for tooth decay and take x-rays when necessary to reveal any signs of decay or infection that might be hiding in spots not visible to the eye. In keeping with the recommendation of the American Dental Association, Dr. Holmes and Dr. Revel would like to see you and every member of your family twice each year for these checkups. With this regularity, we can more easily monitor for changes in your dental condition that may warrant treatment.

Beyond these regular dental checkups, family dentistry at Pasadena Family Dentistry includes other services that are important to your oral and general health. Gum disease therapy, for example, helps to arrest this infection of the gums and bone that support your teeth. Not only can the bacteria that cause gum disease spread in your mouth, they can also migrate to other bodily organs and systems, thereby causing overall health problems, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, low birth weight and even dementia.
