Tooth discoloration and staining can be the result of many things, ranging from certain medications to genetics and lifestyle habits. In addition to making your smile appear unhealthy, yellow or stained teeth often affect how you feel about your appearance and your sense of confidence. A bright, white smile has been proven to have a positive impact on both social and professional interactions for many people.
Whiten Your Teeth in Northern Virginia
Ridgetop Dental offers treatment options that can provide a brighter, whiter smile. Teeth whitening is the easiest, most economical and fastest way to whiten discolored teeth either in our office or at home. We will meet with you to evaluate your dental health and discuss your cosmetic goals to ensure that your teeth stains or discoloration will respond to professional teeth whitening.
We provide a free whitening consultation to patients who are interested in teeth whitening, including a custom shade analysis —which is an important part of your teeth whitening success. Although teeth whitening is effective for most patients, there are certain types of tooth stains that may not respond. These can include tooth discoloration caused by certain medications or medical conditions or genetic staining.
Dr. Datta offers alternative treatments if you are not considered a good candidate for teeth whitening, all of which can provide a more permanent result that will boost the color of your smile- and your confidence. Options can include:
- Tooth bonding: bonding can be used to change the color of a tooth or several teeth to blend with your natural smile
- Porcelain veneers: custom dental veneers will cover the teeth and provide a beautiful, whiter smile that will last for many years to come
- Dental crowns: to address one or two discolored teeth, dental crowns can be placed to improve aesthetics
