Why You Should Get Teeth Whitening
The biggest change teeth whitening can bring is with your confidence. If you know your teeth are dark and yellowish, your confidence can do down whenever you smile. Thankfully, the opposite is also true. Teeth whitening (when done right) can help build up your self-esteem and confidence.
This can lead to several benefits, such as:
- Being more comfortable meeting new people.
- Feeling more willing to speak up at work.
- Generally being happier with how you look.
That’s why you need to call Dr. Ki today and make an appointment for teeth whitening. Thanks to her expertise and our professional-strength teeth whitening, you can have a smile that makes you proud to show.
Problems With OTC Teeth Whitening
While many stores sell over-the-counter teeth whitening kits, these are not recommended. Here’s why.
– You can have uneven results because you’re not trained in teeth whitening.
Dentists train in teeth whitening to ensure they can do it right. With OTC kits, you have to read printed instructions and hope you understood them correctly. This can lead to uneven results such as some teeth being whiter than others. You want your smile looking better, not more unusual.
– The whitening agent is made weak to avoid needed a prescription.
In order to get professional results, you need to get your teeth whitening from a dentist. That’s because you need a prescription to get the whitening agent. How can these kits be sold without one? Manufacturers dilute the whitening agent until it’s legal to sell. That means you might have to use OTC kits repeatedly to get the results you want.
– You can irritate your gum tissues.
Teeth whitening is supposed to be on your enamel only. That’s because the whitening agent can irritate or even hurt your gums. Since you’ll be doing this by yourself, it’s not hard to get some on your gums by accident.
– Some have abrasive agents that can damage your enamel.
To make up for the weaker whitening agent, some OTC kits include a strong abrasive. The hope is to scrape away stains that the diluted whitening agent cannot lift. The problem is that anything strong enough to scrape stains away will also take some of your enamel with it.
That’s why you need to call our Fairfax, VA dental office today for professional teeth whitening. Dr. Ki has the advanced training needed to use professional teeth whitening safely and accurately. By coming here, you will finally have a bright smile.
Why Zoom WhiteSpeed Works Much Better
Dr. Ki uses a special type of teeth whitening: Zoom WhiteSpeed. This system can get your teeth up to eight shades whiter after just one visit to our Fairfax, VA dental office. Here’s why Zoom WhiteSpeed is much better than any OTC kit.
– Zoom WhiteSpeed includes professional-strength whitening agents.
Since Dr. Ki is ordering the system, you will get professional-strength teeth whitening agents that only dentists can get. That’s why Zoom WhiteSpeed can be done in a single office visit.
– Zoom WhiteSpeed includes a special light that makes the whitening agent work even better.
The whitening gel that Dr. Ki will carefully apply to your teeth has a special component that’s activated by a LED lamp. A vitamin E balm is put on your lips to protect them from the light. Then in 3-4 15-minute sessions, your teeth keep getting whiter and whiter.
– Dr. Ki is expertly trained to use Zoom WhiteSpeed safely and accurately.
Dr. Ki can take several steps to make sure you’re protected during the treatment. Vitamin E is applied to your lips to protect them from the LED light. A protective barrier is applied to your gums to protect them as well. Finally, Dr. Ki has been trained to use teeth whitening correctly.
