When you see your smile in the mirror or a photograph, how do you feel? Many people feel embarrassed and self-conscious about their smiles. This often stems from yellow or otherwise discolored teeth. Thankfully, your teeth can be brightened with professional teeth whitening. In today’s blog, your Rochester dentist, Dr. Gilly Calcagno, uses a fun and informative quiz to discuss the advantages of our professional teeth bleaching services.
