Dear valued patients,

At Martin-Taylor Dentistry our #1 priority is your health and safety. Currently, we are available to treat your emergency dental needs. One of the important reasons we are doing so is to reduce the burden that dental emergencies would place on hospital emergency departments, if we were not available. We want to assure you that our office at Martin-Taylor Dentistry is a safe, clean environment to get the necessary treatment. We not only meet all requirements, but we exceed them, for your safety and ours. Delaying treatment of infection or pain can lead to more serious issues that may become more complicated to treat and can compromise your overall health, not just the health of your mouth.

At our office, we are thoroughly screening all calls and patients to maintain a safe environment. Patients are easily able to maintain social distancing. All rooms are wiped down before and after treating patients and the Dentist and the Martin-Taylor Dentistry Team always wear proper gear for their protection and yours.

We take extraordinary measures to ensure the safety and well-being of all our patients. We adhere to strict medical hygiene policy, including thoroughly disinfecting all common areas and surfaces (bathrooms, lobby and chairs, counters, door handles, etc…).

Our office is clean, safe and ready to treat any dental emergencies during these times. We look forward to reopening to a regular schedule as soon as it is appropriate to do so. In the meantime please do not to hesitate to call us with any questions (520) 747-9024

Sincerely,
Jeff Martin DDS
William Taylor DDS

Teeth whitening before and after
Before and after teeth whitening

Nothing makes quite the impression that a bright, white smile does. If you have stained teeth, then the dental team at Martin Taylor Dentistry in Tucson, AZ has teeth whitening solutions to help you safely and effectively whiten your smile.

How teeth whitening works

Brushing your teeth can help get rid of surface stains and discolorations, but many stains reside beneath the surface of the teeth in the tubules. These tiny channels in the enamel of your teeth soak in dark or highly pigmented substances such as coffee, tea, wine, red sauces, and tobacco, which leads to a yellowed appearance to your teeth. With professional tooth whitening, we create custom-fitted trays for your mouth and provide a medical-grade whitening solution that gently but effectively lifts the stains from the tubules for a bright smile that is several shades whiter.

Why get teeth whitened?

Over time as we eat or drink certain things stains our teeth. Such stains cannot just be simply brushed away. That’s why we have the option for teeth whitening in our practice, Martin Taylor Dentistry.

What is the process of whitening teeth?

In Martin Taylor Dentistry, we do custom trays. We take impressions of your teeth and make clear plastic trays that fit specifically for you.

The trays are given to take home with a whitening gel and clear instructions on how to use it. This allows you to whiten teeth whenever you want.

What is the duration of the whitening process?

It usually takes about three or four weeks to get to a point where you are happy. As time goes on, if your teeth stains again, you can bleach them whenever you want since you have the trays with you.

What are the other methods available?

You can use the store-bought whitening strips. However, they might not be as effective. Without custom trays, the bleaching material can get on your gum tissue, and chemically burn your gum tissue.

Another method is in-office bleaching with lasers which are great although it can be a little sensitive for the teeth.

Why choose professional teeth whitening?

With a wealth of tooth whitening products available at your local grocery store or pharmacy, it can be tempting to perform teeth whitening at home. However, professional teeth whitening services offer many advantages over these over-the-counter products. Simply put, professional whitening works better, faster, and is safer.

  • Dentists offer medical-grade teeth bleaching agents, which provide better whitening results in a shorter amount of time
  • The custom trays are more comfortable than over-the-counter options
  • Custom-fitted trays not only help cover all the surfaces of your teeth evenly with the whitening solution, but they also keep the gel where it belongs – on your teeth, not on your gums, where it can cause irritation and sores
  • Over-the-counter formulations do not always work, may not be made from safe materials, and can cause intense tooth sensitivity
  • Dr. Taylor and Dr. Martin follow up with you during the whitening process to ensure that you are getting the results you want without negative side effects

Even better, if you notice that your teeth are becoming yellowed again in the future, you can use your customized trays for touch-up treatments to maintain your beautiful results.

If you are interested in tooth whitening, call our Tucson, AZ office today at (520) 600-6925 to learn more about the process and whether it is right for you.

Dr. Taylor, Dr. Martin, and their entire staff are the very best. The front desk staff, the dental assistants, and dental hygienists are excellent. I’ve been to many dentists over the years, and they are the most skilled and professional group of people that I have encountered. You can be confident you will be fully informed about what is recommended for a treatment plan and what it will cost. I’ve had the gamut of dental procedures — crowns, implants, root canals, and more routine care. It’s been made as pleasant and comfortable as possible by their skill, as well as their kindness and understanding. I wholeheartedly recommend Martin and Taylor Dentistry.

I have been a patient of Dr. Taylor’s for most of my adult hood. I have had everything done from a filling to multiple dental implants. All of my procedures have been straightforward with zero complications and as little discomfort as possible. Even after my implants I had minimal pain! Before I saw Dr. Taylor I was terrified of dentists, but he put me at ease with his expertise. The hygienists are kind, thorough but gentle, and knowledgeable. The office staff is very friendly and helpful. The office itself is modern and impeccably clean. I highly recommend Martin Tayler dentistry and won’t trust my teeth to any other dentists.
