It’s National Smile Day! It’s the perfect opportunity to get your dream smile at Reyes Dental Group! Smiling is believed to boost serotonin levels, which makes you happy! Dr. Larry Reyes and his dental team would love to help you feel confident and excited about your smile by offering teeth whitening at our dental office in Lorton, VA. Take a look below at the incredible benefits of smiling more:
Improve Your Overall Health — It’s been proven that smiling (even fake smiles) improves your overall health as it can reduce stress, improve blood pressure and your heart rate, as well as reducing pain!
Boost Your Confidence — When you are feeling your best, you can thrive more in all areas of your life. Improving our patients’ confidence is one of Dr. Reyes’ favorite things about his work as a dentist. With confidence, you can achieve more and feel your best.
Improve Your Oral Health — it’s known that if you invest in your teeth by undergoing treatments such as Invisalign or teeth whitening, you naturally will look after your teeth better as a result. This will benefit you in the long run as you’ll have less dental issues.
The Teeth Whitening Process
If you are interested in teeth whitening, let our team know when you are arranging your appointment. At Reyes Dental Group, we use Phillips Zoom Teeth Whitening as you can get noticeable whitening results (up to 8 shades whiter) in one appointment. Dr. Reyes will discuss your color options depending on your teeth and you will agree on a color goal before treatment begins. Note that artificial teeth are not impacted by teeth whitening, so Dr. Reyes may recommend whitening to match your artificial tooth/teeth.
Dr. Reyes will apply the teeth whitening gel and use the Philips Zoom Blue LED light-accelerated technology to whiten your teeth. We use Philips Zoom treatment as it helps deliver enamel protection and reduce tooth sensitivity. Dr. Reyes may also provide you with a take-home teeth whitening pack to top up your teeth whitening when you need to.
Ways to Keep Your Teeth White
If you’re looking to maintain your whiter teeth, it’s important to take good care of them post-treatment. You can keep your smile whiter for longer by:
Avoiding stain-causing drinks and foods, including tea/coffee, red wine, berries and soda (particularly in the 48 hours after teeth whitening treatment)
Brush and floss your teeth after you eat (at least twice a day)
Visit your Lorton dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning
Our Lorton dentist is available to answer all your teeth whitening questions and concerns. We will be delighted to help you improve both the look and feel of your smile! Thank you for choosing our dental practice in Lorton, VA for all your general, restorative and cosmetic dental needs. Wishing you a happy smile day!
