Professional Teeth Whitening
in Falls Church, VA

Millions of people struggle with the discoloration of their teeth, which can significantly diminish the beauty of their smiles. Poor oral hygiene is typically the primary cause of yellowed or dulled teeth, yet aging is also a contributing factor. As we get older, the enamel of our teeth tends to become more brittle, leading to discoloration caused by a variety of factors.

Professional teeth whitening treatments make it effortless to obtain a bright smile smile. Results can often be seen in just one session. This treatment works when a hydrogen peroxide gel is applied to the teeth and then activated, using a special light, to release oxygen ions. These oxygen ions cover the teeth, effectively erasing both internal and external discoloration to attain a bright look. This bleaching process is efficient, as well as completely safe with minimal to no discomfort.

  • What are the benefits of teeth whitening?

    Teeth whitening is a simple and effective way to improve your confidence, health, and appearance. You can brighten your smile and give yourself a more energetic and vibrant look.

  • How is professional teeth whitening performed?

    Our office currently offers two different types of professional whitening services: in-office and custom-made trays.

    • In-office. These procedures start by covering up vulnerable areas inside the mouth, including the lips and gums, to prevent exposure from the peroxide. Then, we apply a high-concentrate hydrogen peroxide gel directly to the teeth and activate it. You will rest comfortably for a short time until the gel does its work. Then we remove the coverings and rinse the gel away.
    • Custom-made trays. We will take a custom mold of your teeth to make clear trays that you take home, along with a whitening gel. These trays will help minimize the risk of whitening gel affecting your gums or mouth and you can whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home. All you have to do is place the whitening gel inside the trays and place the trays in your mouth.
  • How do I whiten my teeth at home?

    If you want to whiten your teeth at home, there are several simple remedies you can try. Start by brushing with baking soda and occasionally rinsing or brushing with a diluted hydrogen peroxide solution (1.5% concentration). Apple cider vinegar can also be used as a brushing or rinsing agent. Eating more fruits and vegetables and limiting foods that stain teeth, such as soda, coffee, and wine, will help reduce discoloration. Additionally, limiting sugar intake and maintaining a regular brushing and flossing routine (twice a day) can also have a positive effect.
