Bright, white teeth look healthy and vibrant, improving the overall appearance of your smile. As a result, teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures requested at our office. In just one short visit, Northern Virginia cosmetic dentist Dr. Aboulkhair can help you achieve the dazzling, white smile you desire.
The best way to find out which teeth whitening option is best for you is to speak with Dr. Aboulkhair in person.
Causes of Tooth Discoloration
Over time, your teeth will gradually become stained and discolored. Common foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, red wine, and chocolate can tarnish your teeth, making them look dull and discolored. Lifestyle habits such as smoking can also be a primary factor in tooth discoloration.
Certain chemicals such as tetracyclines used in antibiotics can cause your teeth to become chemically stained. The nature of these stains is somewhat different than those caused by natural staining agents, and they often require a different approach to achieve your teeth whitening goals. At your initial consultation, Dr. Aboulkhair will evaluate the condition of your teeth and recommend the ideal course of action to accomplish your goals.
Your Teeth Whitening Options
At Aesthetic Dentistry of Fairfax, our Northern Virginia cosmetic dentists use the Zoom! 2™ teeth whitening system to achieve your whitening goals. Throughout his career, Dr. Aboulkhair regularly evaluates a variety of teeth whitening systems, and he has chosen Zoom! 2™ due to the consistently high quality results it achieves. Your Zoom! 2 treatment can brighten your teeth up to 8-10 shades.
Zoom! 2 tooth whitening is safe and effective. Dr. Aboulkhair and his team take all necessary precautions to protect your gum tissue and eliminate any potential gum sensitivity. The Zoom 2! Whitening gel is applied to your teeth, and a special light is used to activate the whitening agent and begin the bleaching process.
Dr. Aboulkhair will also provide you with customized bleaching trays to be used at home in order to maintain your whitening results long term. For chemically stained teeth that do not respond well to teeth whitening treatments, Dr. Aboulkhair may recommend porcelain veneers as an alternative.
