Look Your Best for Graduation Day


Teeth WhiteningGraduation season is upon us and parents and seniors across the nation are sending out invitations and making the final touches on their celebration plans.  But aside, from the cap and gown, guest book, and mints, our Colonia dentist is happy to help you look your best for when you walk across the stage to accept your well-earned diploma.

One of the easiest ways to look your best is to improve your smile.  Graduation day is a big milestone; a tribute to you and all of the hard work you’ve put into your education.  Whether celebrating the end of your high school career, or the end of your college studies, it is bound to bring a smile to all.  So what can you do now to ensure your smile is the best it can be?

Teeth Whitening

There are a variety of in-office and out-of-office teeth whitening procedures.  Not sure which is right for you?  Simply give our Colonia dentist office a call to set up a quick consultation.  We can walk through the available procedures to determine what will work with your timeline and schedule.  Below are brief descriptions of our options.


Customized Trays for Home Use

Our Opalescence PF teeth whitening solution is a take-home product that you can use during the day or throughout the night.  Times vary depending on the level of whiteness you wish to achieve.  A mold of your mouth is made in our office which is used to create your custom-fit trays.  With a variety of concentrate levels in three different flavors, this solution is versatile and easy to use.  Additionally, due to the nature of the product, the gel used in your customized trays won’t seep into your gums and soft tissues which often leads to tooth sensitivity.


Front Door Delivery

Our Opalescence Go product is another in-home solution to whiten your teeth.  Trays are prefilled and delivered to your door.  The uniqueness of Opalescence Go is the UltraFit™ tray.  This tray conforms to your mouth as the material warms to your body temperature.  This solution eliminates the need for an in-office impression and is simple and easy to use.  The gel is available in different levels based on how white you wish your teeth to look.   Similar to the Opalescence PF, you can choose your favorite flavor: melon, peach, or mint.


In-office Teeth Whitening

Opalescence Boost is our Colonia dentist in-office treatment plan for whiter teeth.  Two 20-minute office visits are all it takes to make your smile brilliant.  The benefits to an in-office procedure include the elimination of taking an impression, and considerably less amount of time needed to get the smile you want.


We know your graduation day is a special day and we love helping our patients look their best for their special occasion.  Give our office a call to learn more or stop by our Facebook page to see if teeth whitening or cosmetic dental procedures are right for you.

Dear Patients,

As of June 1, 2020, the office will be open to treat patients. During our closure, due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have made many changes to our office protocol to ensure the safety of our Patients, Staff, and Doctors.  We are abiding by CDC Guidelines and have implemented the following:  Frequent disinfecting in between patients, use of higher PPE and limiting the number of patients in the waiting room to ensure social distancing. 

Patients with respiratory symptoms and/or fever are to notify staff prior to arriving to the office.  

We will be providing a Pre-Screening Form from our website to be filled out prior to the appointment. In addition, we will be asking our patients to wear a facial covering upon entering our office and we will be taking your temperature upon arrival with a touchless forehead scanner. 

Adults will come to the appointment themselves. If a patient escort is required, only one additional person will be allowed. In addition, escorts required to drive patients will remain in their cars and will be called when needed.  Minors will be allowed to have one parent/guardian come to the appointment.

Due to the new protocols, you may be offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment times and the length of each appointment may be longer than usual.  

We are looking forward to seeing our patients and welcoming new patients.  It is our mission to provide a safe and positive experience for everyone.

Stay safe,
Dr. Tina Panchal and Staff
