Teeth Whitening An Overview
Having whiter, brighter teeth can help you achieve a more beautiful smile. Many patients would agree that a smile is one of the first things other people notice about you. Keeping your smile in excellent condition should be important to every patient. However, some factors can influence the color and overall appearance of your teeth. Stained and discolored teeth are some of the most common cosmetic dental concerns. If stained or discolored teeth are affecting the appearance of your smile or confidence, you may want to inquire about teeth whitening treatment.
Teeth whitening is a quick, effective way to brighten your smile. In just one visit to our dentist in Herndon VA, Dr. Mark Jefferies can help you achieve a whiter, brighter smile. Our team will work with you to determine if professional teeth whitening is right for you.
Professional Teeth Whitening Vs. Over The Counter Teeth Whitening
When searching for a solution to whiten your teeth, it is easy to choose over the counter teeth whitening options because they are easily available. However, over the counter teeth whitening often provide inconsistent, hardly noticeable results. In the end, patients end up wasting time and money trying to achieve a brighter smile.
Professional teeth whitening offers several advantages over the store-bought whitening options. Professional teeth whitening is performed by a highly trained cosmetic dentist who has the skill set, and knowledge needs to transform your smile.
When applicable, we recommend professional teeth whitening because it offers these key benefits:
- Faster Results: In-office teeth whitening can brighten your teeth up to 10 shades during one office visit. With over the counter teeth whitening, it will take longer to achieve your desired results.
- Reduces Tooth Sensitivity: We take every precaution to ensure you are comfortable during your teeth whitening treatments. The lips, gums, and surrounding areas are covered with a protected covering to limit any irritation.
- High-Quality Bleaching Agents: Our professional grade bleaching agents are designed to penetrate the tooth enamel and brighten the teeth multiple shades.
Am I Candidate For Teeth Whitening?
The goods news is that many patients are ideal candidates for the teeth whitening procedure in our Herndon dentist office. To receive teeth whitening treatment, you should have structurally healthy teeth and gums. It is important to note that certain types of stains do not respond to teeth whitening treatment; however, we offer a full range of cosmetic solution that can treat stained and discolored teeth, such as dental bonding, dental crowns, and porcelain veneers.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Jefferies will evaluate your smile and determine if teeth whitening or another cosmetic solution is right for you. Our goal is to help eliminate stains and discoloration and get you one step closer to a whiter, brighter smile.
