Teeth Whitening Tips
- Posted on: Feb 17 2015
Who among us doesn’t want a bright white smile? It’s the first thing we notice when we meet someone new. Unfortunately, time and habits take their toll, turning our one-white smiles a dull yellow. Fortunately, teeth whitening is safe, convenient, and effective. Please contact the Northern Virginia cosmetic dentists at Galleria Dental Aesthetics today at 703-957-7069 to schedule your teeth whitening consultation.
Here are our top four tips for keeping your teeth brilliantly white.
- Avoid staining agents. The most common culprits include coffee, tea, and red wine, but highly acidic foods and drinks like orange juice can also promote staining.
- Don’t waste your money. Over-the-counter strips and gels might seem convenient and affordable, but it’s a false economy. These products simply can’t deliver the same level of whitening power as professional teeth whitening. That’s because the bleaching agents available over the counter are just not as potent as what’s available from your dentist.
- Opt for in-office whitening if you can. In-office teeth whitening can brighten your teeth by several shades in just one hour-long office visit!
- Choose take-home solutions if you need to. While not as immediately effective as our in-office solutions, we’re also pleased to offer custom take-home trays and gels that are far more effective than over-the-counter products.
You don’t have to suffer from a less than brilliant smile any longer. To learn more about teeth whitening, and to schedule an appointment with our Northern Virginia cosmetic dentists, please contact Galleria Dental Aesthetics today at 703-957-7069.
