Virginia Beach is a beautiful place to live, so you will want to have an attractive smile. However, if your teeth are discolored from many years of smoking cigarettes or consuming colorful foods, you may want to undergo a teeth-whitening procedure. While there are kits available for whitening your teeth, these are ineffective, leaving stains on certain areas of your dental enamel. The strips or trays that are in generic kits won’t hold the whitening chemicals against all areas of your teeth. In addition, if you have dental restorations such as implants, crowns, or veneers, then you can’t protect these items from the damages of the whitening chemicals. Alternatively, a dentist can apply the whitening solution to all of the surfaces on your teeth and help protect your dental restorations. If your dental restorations are stained, then our dentist has special techniques for teeth whitening.
A Teeth-Whitening Procedure is Fast and Easy
Your regular examination with a dentist is the perfect time to have teeth whitening procedures, but you can also request this treatment at other times. A teeth-whitening service is fast and easy, but first, our dentist must examine you to determine if there is a problem. If you have gingivitis or cavities, then these problems require treatment before you undergo a teeth-whitening procedure. Filling a small cavity is simple for our dentist, but a large cavity will require a dental crown, and this type of procedure may require a root canal. After your teeth and gums are healthy, you can have your teeth whitened by our dentist with an in-office procedure.
