It’s no fun being cooped up for weeks at a time due to circumstances that you cannot control. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has been hard on everyone. It is likely that you have had to postpone certain things that you would have had done prior to quarantine. Now that quarantine is ending, you can put those items back on the front burner with our Reston dentists. One way is by treating yourself to a cosmetic dental treatment.
If you have had some degree of teeth staining, you may have tried out an over-the-counter teeth whitening product while you were in lockdown. If you are like most people, you were probably disappointed in your results. While some products have limited effectiveness, they are typically unable to match the results of a professional teeth whitening treatment.
Probably the least effective at-home teeth whitening method is using whitening toothpaste. These products are generally too mild to produce noticeable results, even when used for long periods of time.
Teeth whitening strips may produce some noticeable whitening when left in contact with the teeth for a long period of time. However, they still are a poor substitute for professional whitening.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Our Reston dentists can whiten your teeth many shades here in our office with a professional teeth whitening treatment. The bleaching agents found in our whitening gel is much stronger than that which is available over-the-counter for home use.
Another key advantage to professional teeth whitening treatments is that you will have a team of professionals available to monitor every step of the process to ensure that your treatment is both safe and effective.
Do you have crooked teeth but would prefer to have them straightened without everyone knowing about it? If so, Invisalign may be right for you. This is an advanced system for straightening teeth that is virtually undetectable to others. It utilizes a series of clear plastic aligners that are periodically swapped out for a new set to continually shift your teeth into their proper positions.
One thing that patients love about Invisalign is that the aligners are removable at any time. So, unlike traditional metal braces, there are no food restrictions with the system. You do not have to avoid sticky or crunchy foods that could adhere to your appliances. You simply remove them whenever you need to eat or clean your teeth and replace them afterward.
