Dr. Ronald Receveur, a New Albany dentist with worldwide training and experience placing dental implants in a day, has written a blog cautioning the public about the effects of overusing teeth-whitening treatments.

In his blog published Dec. 23 to his website, http://www.NewAlbanyImplants.com, Dr. Receveur writes that overusing teeth-whitening treatments can lead to tooth decay, gum disease and even irreversible damage to enamel.

“Because teeth-whitening treatments are available in every drugstore or grocery store, people assume they are harmless,” Dr. Receveur said. “But we’re seeing a new wave of patients who overuse teeth-whitening treatments and create serious dental issues for themselves. In some extreme cases, the bleaching treatments make the teeth appear translucent.”

Teeth-whitening products have become so popular that Americans are spending about $1 billion on over-the-counter treatments every year, Dr. Receveur said.

“With a dentist by your side or in moderation, teeth-whitening products can be very safe and incredibly successful,” Dr. Receveur said. “But misusing these products can lead to serious oral health issues. At our office, we provide safe cosmetic dentistry services that can brighten your smile.”

Dr. Receveur offers New Albany cosmetic dental procedures and general dentistry such as teeth cleanings, X-rays, fillings, extractions, root canals, crowns, teeth whitening and veneers.

Dr. Receveur also has vast experience with All On 4 dental implants, All on Six dental implants, One Day Smile Solution, dental implants in one hour, bone grafting and sinus lifts, all with IV sedation dentistry. He has been restoring implants with prosthetics and complex dentistry for 25 years and surgically placing implants since 2008.

Dr. Receveur, a New Albany native, has been the family dentist of choice for Southern Indiana and Louisville since 1981.

Dr. Receveur graduated from Indiana University Southeast with honors in chemistry, after which he earned his doctorate in Dental Surgery from the Indiana University School of Dentistry.

Dr. Receveur has attended more than 5,000 hours of postgraduate training and even gone to Portugal to study with the best dentists in the world. He has been awarded numerous advanced certifications in Implant, Sedation, Comprehensive, Restorative and Aesthetic dentistry so he may provide the most current dental techniques to his New Albany and Louisville dental patients.

Dr. Receveur’s associate, Dr. Frederick, graduated from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry. He has received additional training in cosmetic dentistry, endodontics (root canals), orthodontics and dental implants at the Midwest Implant Institute, and has completed dental sedation training.

Dr. Frederick was a dental lab technician before receiving his DMD. That gives him unique knowledge in cosmetic dentistry elements like crowns, bridges, veneers and smile design.

Dr. Frederick is a graduate of the University of Kentucky, where he was a member of the men’s soccer team and received his Bachelor of Science in Biology. He graduated high school from St. Xavier in Louisville.
