Do you brush and floss diligently and visit the dentist routinely but aren’t happy with the look of your teeth? Regardless of oral health habits, everyone’s teeth start to lose their youthful brightness as they age.

Fortunately, professional teeth whitening in Fredericksburg, VA is a fast, affordable way to brighten your teeth and can take years off your smile. Say goodbye to tooth staining and yellow teeth and hello to a bright, white smile!

Teeth Whitening in Fredericksburg to the Rescue!

Professional teeth whitening quickly and affordably lifts stains and boosts the brightness of your smile. Many dentists offer two methods – in-office power whitening or a customized kit that you use at home for two weeks. Teeth whitening is fast and affordable, but you are investing some time and money in the results. The last thing you want is to undo them with lifestyle habits that don’t support a bright smile.

Keep Your Smile Bright

Keep your smile bright by using your customized whitening trays to do touchups at home. But if you want to extend the effects of treatment, there a few habits you need to rethink.

  • Do you enjoy drinking coffee or red wine? You should be aware that pigments in both can stain your teeth and leave them dull and dingy looking.
  • If you smoke or chew tobacco, you already know the health risks. But both habits deposit ugly brown or yellow stains on teeth that are difficult to remove, even with professional teeth whitening.
  • Don’t be tempted to skip general dentistry appointments now that your teeth are white and clean. Visiting the dental hygienist routinely for teeth cleanings leaves you with a “clean slate” every six months that keep your smile bright and fresh.
