"I recently moved to GA and had not established care with a dentist yet. While I was eating, a crown from a previous root canal came off. So, I needed to find a dentist ASAP! I have pretty significant dental-related anxiety and previously sought out a dentist certified in sedation dentistry for this reason. I found several several recommendations for Dr. Toms online and was pleasantly surprised and relieved to learn that he is certified and proficient in both oral and IV sedation. I called his office to schedule an appointment and did not expect a next-day appointment! The staff was so friendly on the phone, and even more welcoming in person! They made me feel like a long time regular patient from the first moment I met them! I filled out all of my paperwork online before my appointment and just had to sign them once I arrived., The check-in process was smooth and quick, and I waited less than 10 minutes to see Dr.,Toms., They even scheduled my cleaning 2 days later! Highly recommend!"- J.M. / Google / May 23, 2021

What to Expect
The home teeth whitening kit will be created by Dr. Toms with a whitening product and mouth trays. Before making your whitening kit, Dr. Toms will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your enamel and dental health in order to choose the best whitening potency and formulation. For your teeth whitening trays, you may opt to have impressions made of your mouth so custom trays can be made, but it will take additional time to receive them.

As soon as your kit is prepared, Dr. Toms will go over the instructions required for every treatment, including how long and how frequently to use the whitening gel.
Your results will depend on the formula of the bleaching gel, your starting tooth color, and how often you apply your whitening kit. Once you achieve your desired color, you can quit using your home treatments. For result maintenance, you need to keep an excellent oral hygiene regimen and implement lifestyle changes, such as avoiding staining foods, drinks, and tobacco products. Additionally, you ought to schedule twice yearly professional cleanings at Patrick B. Toms, D.M.D. so stains will be polished, and annual dental examinations so Dr. Toms may check on your general dental health. You should keep your mouth trays clean and in a secure place, so in the event that you want to resume your whitening treatment, you would just have to buy more bleaching gel.
