Teeth Whitening

“You only get one first impression, so make it count.”

You’ve probably heard this expression before, but what many people don’t consider is the non-verbal first impression. Before you say hello, before you introduce yourself, before you even shake hands – you smile. Your smile is your first impression, and at Dentistry of Virginia Beach, we want to make it count!

There are numerous reasons to whiten:

  • Staining of teeth from food/drinks (wine, coffee, tea)
  • Smoking tobacco (or chewing tobacco)
  • Age – teeth naturally darken with age
  • Genetics
  • Diseases & Medications

You may have considered whitening your teeth before, but maybe weren’t sure if it was for you. You may be interested to learn that teeth whitening is the most requested procedure in cosmetic dentistry. Over 100 million Americans whiten their teeth each year, in some way, shape or form. And whitening is by no means a “new” concept: in ancient times, the Romans would try to whiten with the help of urine and goat milk!

These days, the procedure is much more modern (and sanitary). There are numerous at-home options, but nothing else can deliver the quality results of an in-office dental procedure. We can actually lighten your teeth ten shades in one hour!

If you’ve still got questions, or just aren’t sure if dental whitening is for you, contact Dentistry of Virginia Beach today.

We look forward to working with you!
