If there is anything I get complimented on most it is usually my smile. I never thought that when I chose the name Shibley Smiles that people would recognize me based on that one thing, my smile. I’ve always wanted a “whiter” smile. I’ve tried the Crest strips and whitening toothpastes but never achieved the white I was looking for. I’m exciting to be working with Petrover Orthod0ntics to see if I can indeed finally get the bright white smile I want. I’ve been given the chance to try the Opalescence Teeth Whitening Kit compliments of Dr. Jonathan S. Petrover, D.D.S.
I visited the local office of Petrover Orthodontics about two weeks ago to tour the office, meet the staff, and have the impressions done for my personalized teeth whitening trays. The office I visited was just over a year old and beautiful. When I first walked in I noticed that the office felt open, yet inviting, spacious, yet homey. I was greeted by the friendly staff and the front desk and given the official tour. What I found different about this office was the waiting area. When patients first arrive they can check themselves in on the computer. Don’t let this give you the impression that the staff is not there to help they are front and center and ready to help with anything when needed.
Once you are checked in you are called back to wait in a large octagon like area surrounded by sofa’s and a large flat screen TV. Did I mention homey feeling? Yes it is like you are sitting on your sectional sofa at home conversing with family while watching a movie or TV show. The waiting area is surrounded by the cubicle like working areas (they are private of course), where you will go when you are called up for your appointment. There is also a small sink area to with toothpaste and toothbrushes in case you need to brush your teeth before your appointment.

Before I had my impressions done I had the chance to meet Dr. Petrover. He was very friendly and seemed very passionate about his work. He was showing me a new machine they had just purchased that was going to make impressions for several dental procedures much easier in the future. Instead of sitting with the goopy stuff in your mouth waiting for it to harden (like I did). For certain procedures he will be able to use a laser to take impressions of teeth. Seems pretty high tech to me. Being a tech geek myself I love to visit doctors and dentist office that take part in the new technology at the benefit of their patients.
Dr. Jonathan S. Petrover is a specialist in orthodontics. He received his AB degree from New York University in 1986. He graduated with honors from NYU College of Dentistry in 1989 and completed with honors his orthodontic specialty training at NYU in 1991. He received advanced training in several New York City hospitals as a Fellow in Craniofacial Deformities and Orthognathic Surgery. He has been published in professional journals and has presented at meetings and conferences. Dr. Petrover was an Associate Clinical Professor at NYU and has maintained practices in New York and Connecticut before relocating with his family to Palm Beach County.
After my impressions were done Michele, the office manager, went over with me what to expect during my teeth whitening experience. The product I am giving a try is the Opalescence 35%
Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels allow you to whiten your teeth at your convenience—in a safe, effective, and customized way.
Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels are only available from your dentist, who will supervise your treatment from initial consultation through completion. The sticky, viscous gel won’t migrate to gums, and most formulations include Potassium Fluoride (PF), which helps to improve oral health by strengthening enamel, decreasing sensitivity, and offering increased cavity prevention.
Powerful, prescription-strength Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels are available with 10%, 10%PF, 15%PF, 20%PF, and 35%PF carbamide peroxide. Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels can provide results after just one night, though expect to see results in about a week.
Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels are delivered via customized bleaching tray. Your dentist will create this tray from an alginate impression of your mouth; this customization is part of why Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels are so effective. You can further customize your Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gel experience by choosing from the five formulations and three flavors (mint, melon and regular).
I’ve started the kit and am excited to see the results. Look for an additional post with my before and after photos as well as a giveaway for you own Opalescence Teeth Whitening Kit!
