Tooth Whitening in Potomac Falls

Can tooth whitening treatments in Potomac Falls turn into too much of a good thing? It’s entirely possible. Just as people become obsessed with plastic surgery, or working out constantly to achieve super fitness, some people become “addicted” to tooth-whitening.

According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), tooth whitening is the No. 1 cosmetic service requested of dentists. And nationally, we spend more than $1 billion a year on over-the-counter tooth-bleaching products.

You may think your teeth are indestructible. But bleaching products can permanently damage your tissues. Dr. Irwin Smigel, president of the American Society for Dental Aesthetics says he’s had patients who have required root canals because they’ve been overbleached. Tooth enamel can wear away from too much bleaching. Your teeth can become translucent, or turn blue or gray…just the opposite of what of the smile you want.

The AACD recommends that your tooth color should match the whites of your eyes for a smile that complements your features without overwhelming them.

Dr. Uzma Ansari has been trained at some of the most prestigious universities and continuing education facilities. They offer in-office tooth whitening, as well as take-home whitening trays that are prescription-strength and more effective than whitening strips or other over-the-counter preparations.

The first step is a dental exam and discussing the whitening treatment that’s best for you with one of our dentists. Call our Potomac Falls dental office for the bright smile that’s naturally white, and beautifully you!
