“A smile costs nothing, but gives much. It enriches those who receive it, without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it, and none is to poor but that he can be made rich by it. A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business, and is the countersign of friendship. It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and it is nature’s best antidote for trouble. Yet, it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away. Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile as much as he who has no more to give.”
At Larrondo Dentistry we are sure you realize the importance of a simple smile and the impact it has on your success and happiness. Your smile should be inviting, calming, reassuring and positive. Those of you who are in business or are entrepreneurs work diligently toward your goals, looking for opportunities and taking risk to succeed. We are confident and positive a smile will encourage your contacts to take a chance on you if you are confident about your teeth and your smile. Of course, your success can’t be directly correlated to a smile, but the positive attitude that comes along with a healthy, genuine smile just might play a bigger role than you ever imagined.
To help improve your smile, Dr. Jorge E. Larrondo offers dental bleaching, also known as tooth whitening, and Zoom, a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin. The Zoom light activated whitening gel’s active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As the Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching colored substances while the structure of the tooth is unchanged. The Zoom light aids in activating the hydrogen peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth. A study has shown that use of the Zoom lamp increases the effectiveness of the Zoom gel by 26% or more, giving an average improvement of eight shades’. Factors that decrease whitening include smoking and the ingestion of dark colored liquids like coffee, tea and red wine.
The ADA recommends that you have your teeth checked by a dentist before undergoing any whitening method. At Larrondo Dentisty of Hemet, Dr. Larrondo will examine you thoroughly and take a health and dental history (including allergies and sensitivities), observe hard and soft tissues, placement and conditions of restorations, and sometimes x-rays to determine the nature and depth of possible irregularities. He will then make recommendations on which tooth whitening proceedure is right for you.
