Summer has arrived, although it has taken a new form in our challenging new environment. But, some things haven’t changed — taking advantage of summer to stay healthy and fit. These expert tips will help you look and feel your best with results lasting long past the summer season.
As we gradually reopen, medical and dental practices are focused on keeping patients safe. For example, As the Brain and Spine Surgeons of New York states, “At Brain and Spine Surgeons of New York, we are placing our patients’ and staffs’ health as our highest priority. We have instituted many safeguards based on the latest CDC guidelines into our practice to help ensure their safety during this difficult time. Some of these procedures that are required for all staff and patients include: mask wearing, temperatures taken upon arrival, detailed health questionnaires, staggered appointments to minimize the number of people in the office, cleaning of exam rooms after every patient, and more. We are dedicated to providing a safe space for you and your family to receive the finest care and will continue to monitor this developing situation closely. BSSNY is offering telehealth visits to patients who qualify. At BSSNY, we are working hard to make your COVID-19 world a little easier.”
Restoring a beautiful smile
During the relaxing days of summer, you may find even more reasons to smile. And you may become more self-conscious about having a beautiful smile. As Richard K. Whalen, DDS, of Dental Design Studio notes, “Beautiful smiles aren’t just about veneers and Hollywood smiles…sometimes simple things like whitening, re-contouring, bonding, etc., can make a world of difference. A truly experienced practitioner can provide many options to help you improve your smile! Remember that your smile is one of the first things others notice about you. You never have a second chance to make a first impression!”
Taking time for the pearly whites
If discoloration of your teeth is coming between you and a beautiful smile, Michael Koumas, DDS, explains that dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration. “Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth,” he says. “Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful ‘brilliant’ smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a solid try.”
