MOUNTAIN LAKES - MDTVNews.com - Mountain Lakes, MDTV Select® Smile Makeover Expert, M. Corey Johnson, DDS, offers comprehensive patient education and a wide variety of teeth whitening options for his patients. With the ever-growing popularity of teeth whitening treatments, consumers need to learn the facts and become more educated about all of their treatment options.
Patient advocate, Maria Villalonga, RN, BSN, President of MDTV® Medical News Now, Inc., offers the following suggestions when shopping for teeth whitening treatments:
1.) Interview the dentist and the practice. Don't just consider your own dentist, but consider a qualified dentist who does whitening daily.
2.) Don't base your decision on price. Choose the most qualified professional--experience counts.
3.) Buy only from dentists who have a multitude of options available (one-hour light procedure, Gel and Tray, Whitening Strips, etc).
4.) Educate yourself on the benefits and shortfalls of all whitening options and listen to what the dentist recommends.
5.) Only perform whitening under a qualified dentist's supervision. According to the FTC, many over-the-counter products make false or unproven claims and can mislead consumers.
