Having lots of stains or discoloration on your teeth can make you reluctant to show off your smile. At Dental Group of Tysons, Dr. Nahlah, DDS, MS, AFAAID, FICOI, FACP, and his team work with your goals, schedule, and preferences to give you gleaming white teeth that you can display proudly. To explore your teeth whitening options, call the McLean, Virginia, office or book your appointment online today.
Over time and with plenty of use, your teeth accumulate stains and become discolored. Yellow, brown, or simply dull teeth can result from:
Having perfectly pearly white teeth doesn’t necessarily benefit your health, but it can give you a confidence boost.
Teeth whitening is an optional cosmetic procedure that makes your smile more attractive. If the color of your teeth is impacting your self-esteem, Dr. Nahlah can help you explore your whitening treatment options.
At Dental Group of Tysons, Dr. Nahlah uses Philips® Zoom Whitening to brighten your smile. Zoom whitening treatments can be done in a quick office procedure or with take-home kits.
Zoom whitening treatments in the office allow you to achieve teeth up to eight shades whiter than when you arrived. Dr. Nahlah applies the whitening gel to your teeth for three 15-minute sessions at your appointment.
Then, he shines a high-powered light on the gel to activate it and break apart your stains. At the end of the appointment, he applies a fluoride paste to your teeth to reduce their sensitivity.
If you don’t have time for an hour-long whitening appointment, Dr. Nahlah can provide you with Zoom take-home whitening kits and instruct you about how to use them properly.
There are several types of take-home kits, and he helps you choose the best one to meet your whitening goals.
If you get in-office whitening treatments, Dr. Nahlah gives you a touch-up kit to take home that is similar to the home whitening kits. He gives you additional instructions for maintaining your results, which may include:
If you follow all aftercare instructions and use your take-home kits properly, you can enjoy gorgeously white teeth for months or years.
If you’re not satisfied with a dull or yellow smile, call Dental Group of Tysons to explore your teeth whitening options today.
