Academy of International Dentistry Fellow, Don Shaw Brings Out Whiter, Brighter Smiles.

Dr. Don Shaw, partner and co-owner of Bess & Shaw Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, has a way to brighten smiles after a winter of consuming warming foods and beverages that tend to stain teeth just in time for spring and summer.

 Beaumont, TX, May 11, 2016: Partner and co-owner of Bess & Shaw Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, Don Shaw, DDS posted a new blog on his website entitled, Spring for Whiter Teeth Zip, Zap, Zoom! According to Dr. Shaw, “The safest way to whiten your teeth is under the supervision of your dental professional.”

don shawShaw writes, “Spring is here. I bet you’re ready to shed your coats and cover-ups and bare a little more skin to the sun.” He continues adding, “And there’s nothing like basking in the sun to bring out your brightest smile. But what about the red wine, the coffee, tea, soups and other hot beverages and foods you consumed to keep you warm through the winter? They’ve probably taken a toll on the whiteness of your teeth.”

As Shaw states, “Since there are several whitening products and treatments, it’s important to have a professional who will assess your overall oral health, the health of your teeth and who knows the history of your teeth.” He elaborates, “For example, if your dental professional knows that you are prone to sensitivity, he or she may recommend a gentle formulation to ensure you get the results you are looking for with a treatment that you will enjoy.”
