We Offer Zoom Whitening

At Fox Dental Associates, we offer quick, professional teeth whitening with our in-office Zoom system. Results are visible immediately, and the average appointment lasts about 90 minutes. This procedure is similar to tray bleaching, but is accelerated by the use of a whitening lamp or laser. These vivid wavelengths accelerate the peroxide action of the bleaching gel for immediate tooth brightening. Our patients love the one-time ease and effectiveness of this method, and our experienced staff is here to ensure your comfort and relaxation during the process. The Zoom system is extremely successful in treating dull, yellow or stained teeth with amazing results. We also offer several take-home treatments for individuals who would rather bleach in the comfort of their own residence.

At-Home Treatments and Upkeep

Your dentist will recommend some simple at-home maintenance to preserve your bright smile. Using a whitening toothpaste is a great way to keep on top of mild surface stains, although it will not change the natural color of your teeth. Tray bleaching, teeth whitening strips and paint-on teeth whiteners can prolong your professional job and keep you smiling confidently. A combination of simple procedures will help you achieve and maintain the smile you have always wanted.Teeth Whitening

Dental Problems

Do you experience anxiety before going to the dentist? At Fox Dental, we work with you to help ease all of your anxiety and worries before visiting our office. We understand that dental anxiety is a very common fear, and we want to make you feel relaxed and calm during your visit with us. Prior to any treatment, our knowledgeable staff will thoroughly explain and answer any questions that you may have about the treatment you will be receiving.
Are you experiencing tooth pain? Tooth decay and cavities are caused by acid from bacteria breaking down the enamel surface of your tooth and working its way in to the soft layers of your tooth. Jaw joint disorders can also trigger toothaches caused by chewing or sensitivity to cold or hot drinks and food. The best way to determine the exact cause of tooth pain is to have a thorough oral examination. This includes having X-rays taken so we are able to identify the source of your toothache. Give us a call at (828) 252-2791 if you are experiencing a toothache, and we will schedule an appointment as soon as possible to examine your teeth.
Wisdom teeth often develop in young adults around ages 17-25. In most cases, wisdom teeth can cause future dental problems such as gum disease, tooth decay, or infection if they are difficult to keep clean or if there is not enough room for the wisdom teeth to grow. On the other hand, some wisdom teeth never erupt and stay impacted below the gums. It is common that as wisdom teeth erupt, they often cause pain. If you are experiencing any tooth pain due to wisdom teeth, please call our office. We will schedule an examination to X-ray your wisdom teeth to identify the placement and if any problems are being caused by your wisdom teeth. If necessary, we may recommend wisdom teeth removal to completely remove your wisdom teeth.
Tooth decay and cavities are caused by bacteria eating away from the inside of your tooth. Tooth decay is one of the most common childhood illnesses and often leads to tooth loss. Most cavities can even be painless until the decay starts growing closer to the nerve of the tooth. This is why we recommend having routine checkups so that our dental team can detect cavities early on and prevent further tooth damage.
