Teeth Whitening -Switch Over To A New Smile Today

November 1, 2009

Most of us have a natural desire to have pearly white teeth that is so commonly found in posters and magazines. However discoloration is common among people consuming tobacco, tea, coffee, red wine, soft drink , oranges and other acidic foods like vinegar, citrus food etc. regularly. These stains may be various shades of yellow or sometimes become brown over the years. Problems may also result from debris deposited within the teeth causing cracks and rigid stains. These stains and discolorations can only be removed with expert help and also through understanding what caused these stains.

Why stains are caused?

Our teeth are made up of two layers. The inner layer is made up of dentin, which is a calcified body tissue containing microscopic channels which penetrate in to the outer layer called the enamel. Enamel is a hard layer which shields the tooth. As we eat or drink another layer is formed over the enamel. With the consumption of certain type of food, the rate of discoloration increases.

There are two types of stains. Extrinsic stains mostly form on the outer layer of the enamel and can usually be brushed away in the initial stages. Intrinsic stains are formed inside the teeth and gradually appear on the outside. However these stains can not be brushed off. The teeth whitening procedure help in deleting the intrinsic stains.

How tooth whitening can help

Tooth whitening is actually a chemical process conducted under the supervision of the dentist. The chemical (usually high concentrations of hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide) when applied, penetrates into the enamel and dissolves the materials causing discoloration. Before the application of the chemicals, protections are taken so that the chemicals do not cause any damage.

This process usually lasts about an hour and the patient can experience a year of stain free sparkling teeth. Clinics in Fairfax have a reputation for offering good quality teeth whitening programs and it is easy to locate them on the internet and check up their details. Most people having done their teeth whitening at Fairfax clinics have testified that this procedure made their teeth nearly ten shades brighter.

Some over the counter home tooth-whitening kits are also available in the market which may provide moderate to good results. These kits are however more effective in cases of mild to light stains. For heavy and rigid stains it is always advised to go in for professional treatment where the dentist not only helps in treating the problem but also provides advice about prevention of stains in the future. So now you can go ahead and get yourself a brand new smile and also stop worrying while you eat.

The United States of America has the largest number of the electronic components and semiconductor manufacturing industrial units in the world. There are more than five thousand companies in the country with total combined annual revenue of about 150 Billion US Dollars every year. Micron Technology, Intel, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and the Texas Instruments are the largest industries to be reckoned with, in the world. The electronic components and semiconductor manufacturing industry has become very concentrated in the USA and the largest fifty companies generate more than 70 percent of the total revenue.

This industry is highly dependent on the computer industry and makers of the telecommunications products such as mobile phones, computers, laptops, modems and other electronic items. As the demands may vary from year to year, so also the production of the components may also vary in accordance with the demands. The big companies have become successful by producing parts at low cost or by producing components which are highly specialized in nature. The small companies also produce specialized products and new applications and are fiercely competitive. For success in the industry most firms and companies hire highly qualified technical experts in the field and also implement the latest advances made in the field of production, modernization and atomization of the products. The employees in the industry are some of the most highly paid personnel’s in the country.

Some of the important and major products produced by the units include printed circuit boards, computer chips and various other components like electron tubes and electronic connectors. It has been estimated that semiconductors account for more than 60 percent of the industry revenue and circuit boards for 25 percent in the United States.

There are more than 15,000 wholesale distribution outlets of electronic parts and equipments in the United States which generate revenue of about 140 billion US Dollars every year. Some of the large companies in this field are the Arrow Electronics and the Avnet. Most distributors in the country have about 20 employees on the average and have an annual sale of about 10 million US Dollars per annum. In view of the high demand of the components in the country and as well as the? industrialization and advancement made in the field of computer science and telecommunication industry? in the developing countries of the world, the? electronic component and semiconductor manufacturing industry in the US is rapidly growing and capturing the market in the international field. The 50 largest companies of the country hold more than 65 percent stake in the market.

The overall demand of electronic components and semiconductors is largely dependent on the business and consumer purchases of computers and telecommunications items and equipments. Therefore the profits of most of the companies depend largely on the business volume and correct merchandising, stocking the products which are in high demand by the consumers. The larger firms have greater advantage in this respect as they have greater capacity in producing, buying and stocking the products. The larger firms have also more efficient management and supply system and the ability to meet the large customer orders not only in the US but from the international market as well.

What It Entails To Close Business Officially

October 22, 2009

Even though one does not start a business with the intention of closing in mind, it is helpful to have a strategy on how to officially close it, if and when need arise. There are many issues that may push an entrepreneur to close down a business, some are social, others are legal, while others are finance related. Whatever the reason for the closedown, there are steps that one must carefully consider before declaring the business officially closed.

Much of what needs to be done may depend on the type of business ownership. This is because, when there are more stakeholders, decision making may be biased and may bring up a lot of protocol. One of the most important things to do is to vote for the close of the business. If the enterprise involves more than one overseer or director, minutes of the meeting in which it was decided that the business would be closed should be taken and filed as well as presented to the major stakeholders.

This will show that it was decided without controversy that the venture would head down that road. If your business is registered with the Small Business Development agency, you have to inform them that you are officially closed. The next thing is to cancel or to go back to your books of accounts and see which creditors need to be paid, the pending bills as well as all other dues that need to be taken care of. These will include taxes and all outstanding debts.

Once this is done, surrender all operational documents like trading licenses, operational permits and all other certificates acquired from the government or elsewhere. Once you are done with the above step, notify your creditors, employees, clients as well as other stakeholders that you are now officially closed.
