This program is extended to patients who have proven that they take their oral hygiene and general dental health seriously. We believe it is extremely important to maintain recommended hygiene care appointments and to receive necessary dental treatment to maintain a healthy a beautiful smile.

All too often, people who wait until there is a problem have irreversible damage to their gums, teeth and/or jaw.

With each prescribed hygiene appointment, an additional tube of whitening gel will be dispensed. This privilege does require some rules, restrictions, and regulations.

Teeth Whitening Q & A
What Causes Tooth Discoloration?
Numerous determinants can cause your teeth to become discolored. Some of those factors are preventable, while others are not. Understanding how discoloration occurs can help you to avoid actions that can lead your smile to lose its brightness.
These are some common causes of tooth discoloration:
- Inadequate dental hygiene
- Certain medications
- Excessive exposure to fluoride
- Trauma to the teeth
- Smoking or other tobacco use
- Certain types of disease
As you can see, many different things can negatively impact your smile, not all of which are within your control.
What Role Do Age And Genetics Play In Yellowing Teeth?
Four types of tissue compose your teeth. The center portion is a soft tissue known as pulp. Cementum is a hard tissue that covers the root of each tooth. Dentin is a hard yellow tissue that lies beneath both your enamel and cementum, and your enamel is the tooth’s outermost layer.
Because your enamel is fully calcified, it can’t repair itself. As your enamel wears away, more of the dentin is exposed, making your tooth appear yellow. Some people have a genetic makeup that creates thinner enamel than others, which can hasten the yellowing of teeth as you age.
Are Over-The-Counter Teeth Whitening Products Effective?
Numerous whitening products available in drugstores promise to brighten and whiten your smile. Whitening toothpaste, bleach strips, dental rinses, and even some tray systems can all make a difference in the shade of your teeth.
However, none of these products can match the power of professional teeth whitening. Dr. Rusznak has access to laser teeth whitening systems and powerful tray bleaching options that are only available to dental professionals. These solutions offer fast, effective, and safe whitening.
Over-the-counter whitening toothpastes and rinses are a good option for men and women who want to maintain the whiteness and gleam of their smiles in between professional whitening visits.
To learn more about the whitening options at My Ashburn Dentist, schedule a professional cleaning today, and discuss your concerns during your visit.
