Teeth Whitening Options Reston, VA
- In Office Teeth Whitening
In office whitening treatment takes about 1 hour and is completed while you relax in our comfortable chairs. Patients can read a book, or watch TV while we brighten and whiten their teeth, creating a more radiant and confident smile.
A professional bleaching agent is applied to teeth and activated using laser technology. The bleaching agent is designed to penetrate the tooth enamel eradicating tooth discoloration.
Patients who avoid smoking, coffee, wine and other lifestyle habits that lead to tooth discoloration may enjoy results up to a year. Good at home oral hygiene and routine dental cleanings can also help to keep teeth whiter.
- Take Home Teeth Whitening
Patients who choose to use a take-home teeth whitening kit will come into our Reston, VA dentist office to receive their custom kit. Impressions are taken of the patients’ teeth and used to create custom-fit whitening trays. Trays are worn with a bleaching agent every day for a specified period of time.
Your custom trays fit snugly against the teeth minimizing damage and sensitivity to surrounding soft tissue. A take-home teeth whitening treatment will require a brief office visit for dental impressions. These will be necessary for the fabrication of custom fit bleaching trays to be used at home with the professional bleaching agent.
The trays will be used for a specified amount of time daily for about 2 weeks and your results will gradually emerge.
Boost Your Confidence
