ATTENTION!!!

Greetings to all from Lawrence Dental Excellence!!,

As you are all probably aware, the Governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, after thorough consultation with the Department of Health and the State Board of Dentistry, shut down dental offices, effective March 19. Since that time, we have been complying with the Governor’s order – remaining open for emergency procedures only to do our part to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, and to deliver a different cleaning method for the dental operatory.

We are pleased to announce that the Department of Health revised its COVID-19 Dental Health Care Personnel guidance on May 8 to reflect the Governor’s strategic phased reopening plan. The revised guidance lifts the prohibition on “elective” (non-urgent) dental procedures. What does that mean for you and your family? We are ready to see you now for a vast array of dental services and needs!

Throughout this process, our goal has been to do no harm and to protect our patients (and ourselves), just as some of us did way back in the 1980s when we faced a similar crisis with the AIDS outbreak. Our precautions changed; all procedures necessitated the use of gloves and face protection. So, we continue to follow this rapidly-changing situation and continue to put the safety and health of patients and staff first. The revised guidance further directs dental providers to apply their clinical judgment, knowledge of COVID-19 cases in their respective markets, patient and staff needs, and availability of necessary supplies when assessing whether to move forward with non-urgent and elective dental care.

As we open our doors for non-urgent and non-emergency care, we are continuing to abide by the evolving regulations issued by the state of Pennsylvania to protect the citizens of the Commonwealth. Rest assured that we are also abiding by infection control protocols as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Your health is in good hands, regardless of the needs and goals that may lead you to our office.

After the dental office closure was announced, I had asserted that by the middle of May, much of this would be behind us – that we could then continue to provide what we have always provided: excellent, health-centric dental care. We are right on schedule, and we are here for you. We look forward to hearing from you and reconnecting with you and your family.

Be well and we will see you soon!

Kingston, PA Dental Office offers Fast and Effective In-Office Teeth Whitening

 These days there are many products and treatments available for patients who want a brighter, whiter smile. With all that’s out there, deciding which method is best can be difficult. At Lawrence Dental Excellence, in Kingston, PA, we can help you make that choice. For patients who are interested in achieving a brighter smile quickly, we recommend in-office professional teeth whitening.

How Teeth Become Stained

 There are many factors that can lead to discolored, dull-looking teeth. For starters, the pigments in the foods and beverages we consume can stain the teeth. Red wine, coffee, tea, red pasta sauce, and acidic fruits are among the most common. Certain lifestyle choices such as smoking or using tobacco can cause teeth to yellow. And lastly, there are other factors such as genetics, aging, and certain medications.

What is Teeth Whitening?

 Teeth whitening is a fast and effective cosmetic treatment that can dramatically whiten the enamel of your teeth by several shades in just a single appointment.

What to Expect with In-Office Teeth Whitening

 Teeth whitening is a quick in-office procedure that does not require the use of anesthesia. Individuals with a strong gag reflex can talk to us about our options for sedation. The first step in the process is to clean and dry the teeth so that the bleaching agent can be absorbed evenly by the teeth.

A protective barrier is used on the gums. Next, the whitening agent is applied to the teeth and then activated by a special light. This allows the bleaching agent to penetrate the enamel and break down stains. The entire process may be repeated until the desired shade is achieved.

Candidates for In-Office Teeth Whitening

 In-office teeth whitening from Lawrence Dental Excellence in Kingston, PA is an excellent option for almost any patient who wishes to have a brighter smile after just one appointment. It’s important to note that teeth whitening is not effective on restorations such as crowns or bridges. Additionally, patients must be in good oral health before undergoing teeth whitening.

Always a great experience at Dr Lawrence’s office. They are now like close friends to me. I originally came to Dr Lawrence with some serious dental issues and he not only provided solutions that others either could not or would not …. but …. far exceeded my expectations. I now have people approaching me to compliment my smile and tell me my teeth are spectacular. Crazy! But, more importantly …… I no longer laugh with my hand over my mouth. And for me …… that is everything!
