If you’ve noticed that your teeth are starting to look dull, stained, or yellow, we have a solution.
We understand that a confident smile can change how you feel about yourself. That’s why our team provides professional teeth whitening at K Street Dental & Orthodontic Group in Washington, DC.
Why choose professional teeth whitening
While you might be tempted to buy teeth-whitening products from your local grocery or drug store, our professional teeth-whitening services offer advantages you should consider. They include:
When you come into our office for your treatment, we use special tools to keep your gums and lips protected from the bleaching solution.
We also have an at-home whitening option, which gives you custom-fit bleaching trays that don’t allow the gel to bleed out onto your gums or tongue. They sit in your mouth comfortably while lifting your teeth several shades.
Over-the-counter products typically have one-size-fits-all trays that can harm your oral health.
Our professional bleaching solution pales in comparison to the ones you can buy in stores. If you choose our in-office treatment, our concentrated substance works quickly, only taking an hour to drastically improve the whiteness of your teeth.
If you have stubborn stains, we have a special light we shine on your teeth to help the whitening solution penetrate and break up those stains.
With our in-office treatment, you walk out the door after just one hour with a much whiter and brighter smile.
If you decide to use our at-home option, you control how often you use it, so the rapidness of your teeth whitening is up to you. But our solution whitens much quicker than the generic whitening strips found in stores.
Keeping your teeth white
After your teeth have reached the desired whiteness, we have a few tips on how to keep them looking that way:
- Stay away from dark beverages (tea, cola, coffee, red wine)
- Avoid sauces rich in color (soy sauce, tomato-based sauces, balsamic vinegar)
- Don’t smoke or chew tobacco
- Keep your routine dental checkups
We also recommend that you practice good oral hygiene, which includes brushing at least twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush, flossing at least once a day, and using an antiseptic mouthrinse daily.
When you visit our team every six months for your routine cleaning, we give you a professional cleaning and polishing to keep your teeth healthy and white.
