The Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry Guide to Teeth Whitening

teeth whitening Alexandria

So you want to whiten your teeth? It’s an economical way to upgrade your smile, look younger, and feel more confident when you interact with people in business or social settings.

Here are 5 things Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry recommends when it comes to teeth whitening:

  1. Meet with your dentist for a consultation first. There are several different teeth whitening systems and a consultation will help you identify which technique is best for you.
  2. It is essential to know that whitening does not affect existing fillings, veneers, or crowns.
  3. During your consultation, decide how many shades lighter you want your teeth to be at the end of the treatment. Depending on the whitening technique chosen, your teeth can be improved three to eight shades. An in-office procedure achieves a degree of lightening that cannot be achieved with an OTC product. During your treatment, your dentist may apply a coating to protect your gums and roots while the bleaching agent is applied.
  4. An alternative technique is to have your dentist customize a take-home kit for you. Make sure you follow the instructions exactly. First, molds are made from your upper and lower arch. Then the lab creates trays to hold the bleach. While this method may take longer, it is more competitively priced and more convenient for many patients. Teeth whitening results from either treatment plan can last from six months to two years.
  5. With any of the teeth whitening systems, tooth sensitivity may transpire. In most cases, it won’t last for more than a day or so. Call us if it lasts longer.

Our office offers general, restorative, and cosmetic dental services including sedation dentistry, dental implants, Invisalign, and dental crowns. Quality care and a comfortable patient experience are our top priorities.
