Tooth discoloration is a common dental concern that many patients have. Tooth discoloration is caused by common foods and beverages leaving behind staining agents on your teeth. When allowed to remain on your dental structures, the staining agents harden against your teeth and cause discoloration. If you have yellowed, discolored teeth, Gwaltney Dental has the cosmetic dentistry solutions you need to whiten and brighten your smile.
Our office offers Zoom! Teeth Whitening to combat these staining agents, remove them from your teeth, and leave you with a beautiful and healthy smile. Learn more about our teeth whitening services below.
Teeth Whitening in Suffolk, VA
Dr. Steve Gwaltney, Dr. J.Ryland Gwaltney, and Dr. Whitney Gwaltney are experienced in cosmetic dentistry in Suffolk, VA. They have helped many patients whiten and brighten their smiles using Zoom! Teeth Whitening solutions.
Our Zoom! In-office Teeth Whitening System uses an ultraviolet light that activates the Zoom! Whitening gel. As we layer the gel evenly over your dental structures, the light helps it to gently break down stains on your teeth. Completed in about an hour, patients can leave our office with noticeably whiter teeth.
Over-the-counter vs. Professional Teeth Whitening
There are many over-the-counter teeth whitening options that you may find in grocery stores. While these options may work for some people, these products take a one-size-fits-all approach to teeth whitening. Because the whitening products are not designed specifically for you, you may experience blotchy and uneven results. Additionally, for patients who experience dental sensitivity, these products may be too potent for you and cause discomfort.
When you choose professional teeth whitening services, you are more likely to receive your desired end results. Our doctors will monitor you throughout your appointment to ensure the gel is evenly whitening your dental structures. We can even tailor the potency of the gel for patients who experience sensitivity.
Instead of going through the hassle and risk of applying whitening products yourself, we recommend visiting our office for Zoom! Teeth Whitening treatment. All you have to do is sit back and relax while we whiten and brighten your teeth.
Alternative Teeth Whitening Treatments
Unfortunately, we do see some patients who have stains or discoloration on their teeth that cannot be treated with professional teeth whitening. Gwaltney Dental in Suffolk, VA also offers a few more permanent solutions to whiten your teeth. Porcelain veneers are very popular because they will create a perfectly uniform smile as well as brighten it up. This cosmetic dentistry treatment is permanent however.
We also offer dental bonding to whiten teeth. This treatment is not permanent however it is very affordable and can be completed quickly. If you find the stains on your teeth are resistant to a teeth whitening treatment, discuss these alternative options with your dentist.
