Wishing for a whiter smile but not sure how to get it? New to VA smile tooth whitening lingo? At Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry, we educate clients on the variety of affordable teeth whitening treatments; from whitening trays to in-office teeth whitening. We do smile whitening every day.
Almost every toothpaste claims to whiten teeth, but as we age our teeth gradually turn yellow or gray, despite all the whitening toothpastes we use regularly. Tooth enamel, while one of the hardest substances in the body, is porous. Over time, the food and drinks that comes in contact with our teeth cause staining and discoloration. You probably have already discovered that a toothbrush cannot clean these microscopic pores.
Carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide are the two main smile whitening ingredients. They can penetrate the outer layer of your teeth to remove the build-up, and help restore whitening to teeth. Call cosmetic dentist, Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry at 703-996-4666 to schedule an appointment and we will explain the difference between these tooth whitening ingredients and how they may affect your Alexandria smile whitening results.
At-home teeth whitening products are probably not a good choice if you have dental crowns or porcelain veneers. You could end up with extremely uneven results or possible damage to your existing cosmetic dentistry.
We know the best Alexandria tooth whitening options and can recommend the perfect white smile solution for you.
