Teeth Whitening 101
So, what exactly is teeth whitening? It’s pretty basic: it lightens teeth and helps remove stains and discoloration. It’s among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can vastly improve how your teeth look.
How do teeth get discolored or stained? It’s a slow process, but one that never lets up.
• Tobacco use
• Drinking dark colored liquids such as coffee, cola, tea and red wine
• Not taking good care of your teeth
Virtually every patient who prefers a teeth whitening solution sees moderate to substantial improvement in the brightness and whiteness of their smile. However, whitening is not a permanent solution to discoloration.
Why Teeth Whitening?
Did you know during routine chewing, dentin remains intact while millions of micro-cracks occur in the enamel? That’s a lot of cracking. It’s these cracks that gradually fill up with stains, debris and other bacteria. Teeth whitening removes these stains and debris, leaving the enamel cracks open and exposed. Some of the cracks are re-mineralized via saliva, while others are filled up with organic debris.
Are there any benefits to getting your teeth whitened? You bet!
• It improves your appearance dramatically.
• It’s a self-confidence booster
• It improves attractiveness

• Whiter teeth are associated with beauty and a healthier lifestyle
• A whiter smile gives a youthful and energetic appearance

Many people take their smiles seriously, making sure that it looks the best it can at all times. Many people consider a smile a first impression, and when you surround yourself with friends, loved ones, and coworkers, you want to be sure you make a positive, lasting impression. Unfortunately, if you have teeth missing from your smile, you may find it difficult to be as outgoing as you would like to be. Having a smile that is not complete can be detrimental both to your oral health and the health of your body, and many people may not know what to do to restore their smiles back to their former glory. Fortunately, Dr. Jack B. Share is able to restore the smiles of his patients with dental implants at his Boston, MA dental office.
The reason why replacing missing teeth is so important is because it can put your oral health and your bodily health at risk. If left untreated, not having a full smile can put you more at risk for a misaligned bite, gum disease, and TMJ. Also, not having a complete smile can cause the other teeth in your smile to shift in order to make up for the extra space. Our tooth’s root acts as an anchor to keep your teeth in place, and when that is removed, the effects can be detrimental.
It is important to schedule a consultation with Dr. Share to make sure you are a candidate for dental implants. He will evaluate your smile in its current state, review your medical history, and check your bone density. If you are a candidate for dental implants, a titanium post will be embedded into your jaw. This creates a secure bond, and, over time and will proper healing, the post will fuse with the bone in your jaw, promoting new bone growth. After healing, the crown is added atop the implant. The crown looks just like a tooth, so your new smile will look as natural as possible. If you would like Dr. Share’s help restoring your smile using dental implants, contact our office today!

A patient who is missing one or more teeth may have a difficult time eating or talking, and may even experience of a crippling loss of confidence.
But with dental implants from Dr. Share’s Boston office, it’s possible to enjoy a restored smile that feels just as strong and supportive as a natural smile. This is because dental implants actually mimic the bond a natural tooth shares with the jaw, through a process called osseointegration, something a crown, bridge, or traditional dentures can’t do.
