Hello Alexandria! Do you want brighter, whiter teeth? Most Mt. Vernon residents notice their teeth dulling as the years go by, but some foods, drinks, and even mouthwashes can stain teeth at any age.
OTC tooth whitening products like kits, strips, or toothpastes may slightly lighten stains, but for a truly brilliant smile, see Drs. Geren & Mady!
If you have dental veneers, bonding, or bridges, teeth whitening bleach will not affect the stains and your whitened natural teeth may make your dental work look even duller in comparison. At Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry, we can advise you about new dental work, including veneers or bondings, if these have discolored with age.
Remember, anything that can stain a white t-shirt can stain teeth.
Fortunately, brushing after meals can keep stains at bay, however after consuming acidic foods or drinks, just rinse your mouth with water. Brushing right away can erode enamel.
Alexandria in-office teeth whitening takes about an hour and bleaches teeth to a whiter-than-ever brilliance. Professional take-home whitening kits are also available at Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry and can produce terrific results over time.
