Hello! Today’s dental article is for Mt. Vernon people with stained teeth. Do you think your teeth are too stained for teeth whitening to have any effect? Think again. At Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in the Mt. Vernon area, we are whitening smiles for patients with both intrinsic and extrinsic stains.
Extrinsic stains are caused by dark colored foods and drinks, smoking, and normal aging. Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry cosmetic dentistry patients with extrinsic stains achieve great results from both in-office and take-home teeth whitening systems.
Intrinsic stains form on the inside but can be seen from the outside. Tetracycline, excessive fluoride, trauma, and aging can cause intrinsic staining for unfortunate Mt. Vernon family dentistry patients. Though these stains are harder to remove, many Mt. Vernon patients with intrinsic staining can whiten their teeth with take-home whitening kits. The process often takes longer, but with persistence, intrinsic stains can be lightened.
In addition to teeth whitening, we provide a full menu of cosmetic dental procedures at our Mt. Vernon office. With porcelain veneers, you can correct the shape of your teeth in addition to brightening the color. If you are missing a tooth, implant dentistry may be the solution. Call 703-360-5881 for a dental implant or smile design consultation.
