Professional Teeth Whitening

Many people choose to use over-the-counter whitening products to brighten up their teeth. Products such as whitening toothpastes, strips, gels and rinses can all be purchased at your local grocery or drugstore. While these products are convenient, they just aren’t as effective as professional teeth whitening treatments from your dentist. The ingredients in professional treatments are of higher quality and can achieve significantly whiter teeth in much less time than over-the-counter products. The results of professional whitening last much longer, as well.

In Arlington, teeth whitening can be effective for adults whose teeth have become discolored, dull or stained. Anyone interested in professional teeth whitening treatments should already have healthy teeth and gums as the bleaching agents in whitening treatments can be harsh. If your gums are infected, whitening treatments can irritate them with extended contact. This is a primary reason to have teeth whitening professionally done versus doing it yourself at home. Your dentist will take precautions to protect the gums during the whitening procedure.

Having your teeth professionally whitened by your dentist is a great way to brighten and refresh your smile and you’ll never be afraid to say cheese. Professional whitening treatments are available at the dental office of Dr. Gregory, your Arlington, VA, teeth whitening dentist. To schedule an appointment, call the office at (703) 527-6495.
