Your smile says a lot about you, in fact, it’s one of the first features people notice when they meet you. Is your smile making the right impression, or are there aspects of it you’d like to change? Did you know that one of the quickest and most cost effective ways to make a huge impact on your smile is to whiten your teeth? Dr. Aman Sabharwal, your premiere dentist in Ashburn, discusses the benefits of teeth whitening.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
Whitening your teeth at home, based on your own schedule, offers numerous benefits. After your initial whitening, you’ll be able to update your smile whenever you like, as you can always purchase additional whitening gel from our office. You can also take days off from whitening if your teeth begin to feel sensitive.
First we’ll take impressions of your teeth, which we’ll use to create your whitening trays. We’ll make sure they fit properly and teach you how to safely apply the whitening gel. Then you’ll be off to a whiter brighter smile in no time.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
At Family Dentistry & Implant Center, we also offer in-office whitening for patients who are looking for immediate results. Our ZOOM! whitening system can deliver teeth that are six to ten shades lighter than when you started in one short appointment at our office.
We’ll start by putting a protective barrier around your gums and soft tissues, and then we’ll apply ZOOM!’s high strength whitening gel. We activate that gel with a special light, and then we’ll finish with a fluoride treatment to reduce any sensitivity you may experience. ZOOM! is known for producing phenomenal results, and removing tough stains and discoloration that other systems cannot.
Professional Whitening vs Over-the-Counter Products
While it may seem more cost effective at first to choose an over-the-counter product to whiten your teeth, there are some long-term benefits to professional whitening you should consider such as:
- The whitening gel that Dr. Sabharwal has access to is much stronger than drug store products, which means it takes less time to achieve your desired results.
- At Family Dentistry & Implant Center, we’ll make custom whitening trays, designed specifically to fit you. Over-the-counter products are one size fits all and could be ill fitting, increasing your risk of injury from the whitening gel.
- Many store bought whitening systems are designed only to whiten your front six teeth, or the sight line. This may not achieve your desired results.
- It’s always advisable to whiten under the care and supervision of your dentist in case you experience any issues with sensitivity.
If you’re thinking of upgrading your smile, we encourage you to contact our office today to learn more about our whitening products.
