Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why do I need to whiten my teeth?

Over time and with plenty of use, your teeth accumulate stains and become discolored. Yellow, brown, or simply dull teeth can result from:

  • Pigmented foods and drinks
  • Smoking and tobacco use
  • Aging
  • Genetics
  • Diseases
  • Injuries
  • Medications
  • Poor oral hygiene

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.

What are my teeth whitening 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.

In-office whitening

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.

Take-home whitening kits

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.

Are the results of teeth whitening permanent?

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:

  • Avoiding certain foods and drinks
  • Quitting tobacco
  • Brushing and flossing daily
  • Follow-up appointments and cleanings
  • Specialized toothpaste

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.
