Are yellowing teeth getting you down? If so, you are not alone! Everyone, it seems, would like to have whiter teeth and a better smile. Teeth whitening at The Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria may be just what what you need.
Of course, there are plenty of over-the-counter products you might want to try. Any grocery store will have plenty of options in the dental care aisle: every major brand of toothpaste, it seems, offers a whitening version.
Whitening toothpastes work by adding chemical agents that can gently polish and whiten teeth. They do a fairly good job, and the abrasives in them are no harder on tooth enamel than ordinary toothpastes. However, these products can only remove stains that are on the surface. This generally results in whitening by roughly one shade.
Professional whitening, on the other hand, can whiten your teeth up to eight shades. We have two options: Venus White in-office whitening, and the Venus White take-home version. Both are safe and effective. The in-office version can whiten your smile in just one visit!
