Teeth Whitening Questions
Burke, Fairfax and Fairfax Station, Virginia
What teeth whitening options does Dr. Marzban offer?
Fairfax, Virginia cosmetic dentist Dr. Pamela Marzban offers in-office Boost Tooth Whitening as well as take-home kits from Opalescence. Boost Tooth Whitening is fast, safe, and incredibly effective. Our take-home kits are easy to use and customized for your smile to ensure every tooth is as white as the next. The option best for you will be determined based on your needs and desires.
Is teeth whitening safe?
The tooth whitening options offered by Dr. Marzban are considered safe by the American Dental Association (ADA). Tooth whitening can lead to some sensitivity, but this risk is greatly reduced by seeing Dr. Marzban for this service in her office. The ADA recommends you do not whiten your teeth more than twice a year, but this has more to do with comfort than the strength of your tooth enamel.
Why should I see Dr. Marzban for teeth whitening?
Store-bought kits are inferior to professional whitening in nearly every way. Results from store-bought kits are unreliable, application is messy and, due to the ill-fitting application trays, tooth sensitivity is almost unavoidable. In addition to this, very few people comply with the length of time or frequency of use these kits must be used to see results. For consistent, effective, and comfortable results, only a professional solution will do.
How can I maintain my teeth whitening results?
Keeping your teeth clean is the best way to extend teeth whitening results. Be sure to brush your teeth after every meal and floss at least once a day. Minimize your intake of sugary foods and also those that are dark in color such as coffee, tea, and red wine. Refrain from smoking. Nicotine and tar can rapidly stain teeth. Finally, see Dr. Marzban twice a year for professional cleanings and examinations. These steps will all help extend the results of your teeth whitening.
Can all stains be whitened with teeth whitening?
All surface stains and some deeper stains can be removed with teeth whitening. If your stains are caused by mineralization in water or medications such as tetracycline, you may benefit more from porcelain veneers. This is best determined by Dr. Marzban during your initial consultation.
