Hello! Do you want brighter, whiter teeth? Most people notice their teeth dull as the years go by. But foods, drinks, and even mouthwashes can stain teeth at any age. Over-the-counter tooth whitening products like kits, strips, or toothpaste may slightly lighten stains, but for a truly brilliant smile, see John Han DDS.
What About My Pre-existing Restorations?
If you have dental veneers, bonding, or bridges, tooth whitening in Reston will not impact the stains and your whitened natural teeth may make your dental work look even duller in comparison. At Expressions Dental Care, 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.
Preventing Staining on Your Teeth
Brushing after meals can help prevent staining. But immediately after consuming acidic foods or drinks, just rinse your mouth out with water. Brushing before the acids are neutralized or washed away can erode enamel. In-office teeth whitening takes about an hour and bleaches teeth to a whiter-than-ever brilliance. Professional take-home tooth whitening in Reston is also available at Expressions Dental Care and can produce wonderful results over time.
