Over time, the enamel of teeth gets worn down and they take on a yellowish color. At Dr. Alla Brown’s office in Buford, Georgia, there are a couple of ways to restore your teeth to their original white color.

In the office, Dr. Brown offers Zoom teeth whitening. The procedure is ideal for patients who want immediate teeth whitening results. Many people want whiter teeth for a big event, such as a wedding or a job interview. In under an hour, you can leave the office with a significantly whiter smile.

The second option is to use a professional at-home whitening kit. These kits come with a custom bleaching tray designed by Dr. Brown and will fit your mouth perfectly to ensure even bleach application and no gum irritation. These kits are worn for a couple hours at a time for a few weeks and are great for those who don’t need immediate results or want to help maintain a smile whitened by a Zoom whitening procedure.

Dental habits formed by children in their early years will shape their oral health for the rest of their lives. At Dr. Alla Brown’s office in Buford, Georgia, we put a strong emphasis on pediatric dentistry. Research has said that over half of first grades and 80 percent of 17-year olds have cavities. The Surgeon General has made children’s oral health a national priority after tooth decay was identified as a chronic childhood disease.

One of the keys to starting your children off right is to have good early oral hygiene habits. Starting children brushing and flossing twice a day will greatly help their oral health, as will visits to the dentist’s office. At Dr. Brown’s office, we make our space child-friendly so they can become accustomed to the area. A child’s early visits with Dr. Brown will include a cleaning, x-rays, and an exam. As they get older, other procedures and discussions will occur ranging from talking about thumb sucking to the removal of wisdom teeth.

Dr. Brown’s goal is to have children not be afraid of the dentist and to form good lifelong oral hygiene habits.
