Does Whitening Toothpaste Work?
In general, toothpastes use mild abrasives to remove stains on the surface of your teeth. In addition, whitening toothpaste contain chemical polishing agents that allow them to remove even more surface stains; so yes, they do work! Keep in mind though that they only remove stains on the surface of teeth, not deep inside the tooth. Whitening toothpastes can actually lighten your tooth color; but only by one shade because they generally do not contain a bleaching agent. At home whitening kits can help; they utilize hydrogen peroxide to remove both surface stains and stains deeper in the teeth. Remember, whitening toothpastes and store bought kits cannot produce the results you'll get from having whitening procedures in your dentist's office. Also, since everyone's teeth are different, everyone will have a different result with whitening.

Overcoming Fear of the Dentist
Although statistics vary, the numbers say that up to 50% of patients experience fear or anxiety at the thought of going to the dentist. So, if you experience anxiety you are not alone. Be sure to communicate to the staff and the dentist your fears. We will do everything we can to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. Make your appointment early in the morning, it'll give you less time to think about it. Take a friend with you to your visit, if this will help calm you. Let the office and dentist know that you'd like to have a signal to let them know if you need to take a break during your exam. Don't hesitate to use the signal if you begin to feel anxious or uncomfortable. The dentist won't mind and you'll build your confidence as you overcome your fears!
