Teeth Whitening Dentist in Centreville, VA
Get safe, effective, and professional teeth whitening with our experts at Centreville Dental Wellness Center. Our treatments give you a whiter smile in your shade of choice to elevate your level of brightness and remove stains that can dull your teeth.
Professional teeth whitening is the most common cosmetic dental procedure performed in the United States. While at-home whitening systems use low-dose bleaching agents, professional whitening takes place in a carefully monitored setting that allows for the controlled, safe, and pain-free use of a higher concentration of bleaching gel.
This results in a difference that can be seen immediately!
The Teeth Whitening Process
If you present any signs of gum disease, cracks, or severe tooth decay, our dentist may delay the bleaching procedure until the problems have been addressed. Our dentist may also take photos of your teeth and record their color using a shade guide. This assessment will provide a benchmark for evaluating your whitening progress.
During the teeth whitening procedure, our dentist will insert a cheek retractor into your mouth to expose the teeth that are revealed when you smile. To protect against any effects caused by the bleaching solution, we will paint your gums with hardening resin or rubber.
Next, we’ll apply the bleaching gel and leave it for several minutes before sucking it off. If we don’t see the results you were hoping for on the first try, we are happy to reapply the gel and try again. Following the final application, we will remove the cheek retractors and measure the post-treatment change in the teeth’ shades.
Professional Whitening vs. At-Home Teeth Bleaching
The professional teeth whitening procedure performed by our Centreville dentist has many advantages over at-home bleaching. Difficult organic stains or discolorations, such as those caused by tobacco use, consumption of certain foods, or aging, are best removed with professional teeth whitening.
No other teeth whitening method produces faster results! Professional bleaching is also the safest form of obtaining whiter, more radiant teeth.
You Have Options to Whiten Your Teeth
- KöR: This system uses a unique dental tray technology that seals the whitening gel in and keeps saliva and other fluids out. You can enjoy the freedom of applying KöR at home, or we can apply this treatment for you in-office.
- Opalescence: This is a take-home whitening technology available only through dentists. It uses fast and powerful whitening agents that whiten teeth in a short amount of time. You can take this kit home to get professional results when you have the time.
- Boost GLO Whitening: This system uses whitening gel but adds a light treatment. Warmth and concentrated light accelerate the whitening process. Get it once in our office, or come back anytime you want another whitening boost.
