Longmeadow Dentist Offering Cleanings, Teeth-Whitening as 'Dental Spring Cleaning'

LONGMEADOW, MA--(Marketwired - February 25, 2015) - Dr. Jim Dores, a Longmeadow cosmetic dentist, has numerous dental solutions for patients looking to escape the bleak and bitter cold winter months.

Dr. Dores, owner of Dores Dental, is encouraging his patients and local Springfield area residents to visit his office for a cleaning or teeth-whitening treatment as part of his "dental spring cleaning" effort. Dr. Dores said a dental cleaning or teeth-whitening procedure can be just what local residents need to brighten their spirits and smiles in time for spring.

"We have patients who love visiting our talented dental hygienists for their cleanings. They tell us they feel like a new person when they walk out the door," Dr. Dores said. "A regular cleaning also is one of the best ways to prevent gum disease. This serious dental problem can ravage your mouth and cause tooth loss if left untreated. The scary part about gum disease is that millions of Americans are living with it and aren't even aware they have a problem."

Dr. Dores' in-office teeth-whitening can brighten a patient's smile by up to eight shades in one visit. The Longmeadow dentist uses a bleaching gel activated by a special light. The treatment is noninvasive and can remove some of the deepest stains.

Dr. Dores recommends that patients looking for brighter teeth consult his office before trying over-the-counter teeth-whitening methods. Over-the-counter whitening stripes do not cover the entire surface of the tooth, and whitening treatments can cause discomfort for patients with unhealthy mouths.

"We assess every patient to make sure their mouth is healthy enough for whitening treatments, and then we offer safe and comfortable treatments that will make their smile pop," Dr. Dores said.

Dores Dental serves the communities of Longmeadow, Hampden, Southwick, Springfield, Wilbraham, West Springfield and Agawam, Mass., as well as Enfield and Somers, Conn. He treats children, teens and adults in his office. Individual services include same-day crowns, inlays and onlays, dental implants, bridges, root canal therapy, periodontal disease treatment, tooth extractions, teeth-whitening treatments, Invisalign and custom mouthguards.

Dr. Dores spent nine years working in sales and finance before entering dental school. He is a graduate of the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine and worked as an associate dentist for four years before purchasing his own practice in 2010. Dr. Dores has advanced education in general dentistry, Synergy implant training, Invisalign and same-day crowns. He uses a CEREC machine to produce natural-looking and durable same-day restorations.    

Dr. Dores received the Vitals Patient Choice Award in 2013, a recognition given out by, a patient-review site for doctors. He is dedicated to his community and donates his time to Alana Smiles, a charity that offers treatment for oral cancer patients, and Dentistry From The Heart, a national collaboration of dentists who provide free dentistry for a day for patients without dental insurance. This year's Dentistry From The Heart program is schedule for Saturday, May 9, at Dr. Dores' Longmeadow dental practice.
