Teeth Whitening At Natural Horizons Wellness Centers
If you are like most people in the United States, you place a high value on your smile. White teeth make your smile more appealing and give you and all-around healthy appearance.
Teeth whitening in VA is the easiest way to significantly improve your smile. You can whiten your teeth in one of two ways — at your dentist’s office or in your own home. Each has its own benefits and drawbacks. Since all in-home teeth whitening procedures work better after professional whitening, ask the dental professionals at Natural Horizons Wellness Centers about which take-home tooth whitening process might be right for you.
Teeth Whitening in VA is Now Available
Just a few short years ago, people just like you had to put up with dull, yellow teeth. Advances in dental technology now make teeth whitening in VA available to everyone.
Tooth whitening works by scouring the stains from inside your teeth to restore their natural color. This is true whether you ask your dentist to whiten your teeth or you use a home bleach kit. The effects of teeth whitening can last for a year or longer, depending on how well you take care of your teeth.
Many people prefer in-office whitening because the dentist can use powerful whitening agents while protecting the gums and the rest of the mouth. Quality whitening gels used by professionals often contain buffering agents that protect tooth enamels during the treatments. Professional whitening agents are extremely effective and capable of brightening teeth up to ten shades whiter in about an hour, in some cases.
In-office whitening is a great way to kick-start home bleaching kits. Dental professionals are experts at removing stubborn stains from teeth and they have all the necessary tools for deep cleaning at their disposal. Your Natural Horizons Wellness Centers dental professional is also qualified to handle any issues that might arise from teeth whitening, such as tooth sensitivity or uneven results due to existing dental work.
Home whitening kits are convenient, easy to use and do not require a trip to the dentist office. Most in-home kits include whitening strips, paint-on gels, mouth trays with gels, toothpaste or even whitening gum.
While most in-home kits are safe and generally effective, some people have difficulty using them. Improperly fitting trays can lead to oozing gel that can irritate gums, for example, or improper use may lead to uneven results. Your dentist can help you choose an in-home kit that works well to whiten and brighten your smile.

- What is biologic dentistry?
Biologic Dentistry recognizes and deals with the intimate relationship between the oral cavity (the mouth) and the rest of the body. Many diseases can have their origin in the oral cavity or are exacerbated by factors in the mouth, such as: toxic dental materials (mercury, nickel, fluoride, aluminum, etc.); infections of the teeth, gums, jaw bone or tonsils; jaw or tooth imbalances; or electrical currents generated by metal restorations. By resolving such issues in the oral cavity, illnesses can be prevented, resolved or more responsive to treatment.
One researched and well-documented example is the connection between gum disease and heart disease. Unhealthy gums produce high levels of bacteria, which are then transported by the bloodstream to the heart. The bacteria can then infect and alter the inner lining of the blood vessels within the heart. This begins the deposition of calcium and cholesterol within the vessels, which can form a blockage in the blood vessels and result in a heart attack.
